The Larks: Soul Jerk (Money, 1965, The Jerk)

R&B album out of Los Angeles.

Whatever happened to albums built around a single hit dance? The Larks minted a national smash with “The Jerk” and decided to capitalize on it by recording almost an entire LP of “Jerk” remakes. It’s not even obvious that “Soul Jerk” is a different song since the two sound so similar but hey, since we’re counting down 365 days of soul, I’m going with this “just because.”

365 Days of Soul, #24
