Dancing In The Street!
15 December 2010 | by msladysoulSee all my reviews

This soundie is a short music video basically showing the popular dance of the 40's, the lindy hop. The setting of the soundie is on a street, with a woman getting kicked out of her apartment, all of her stuff is getting put out, even her piano, and she starts playing some boogie woogie on the piano to get rid of her blues. There's a attractive young lady sitting on the porch with a guitar player, and she starts moving to the beat, she appears to be flirting with the guitar player, then a guy comes up and grabs her hand to dance, leaving the guitar player displeased. The girl and guy start lindy hopping in the street, then other neighbors and passer-bys start dancing to. Lynn Albritton, the piano player, starts everyone "dancing in the street," 20 years before Martha Reeves and The Vandellas, of Motown, started everyone dancing in the street. The soundie is really entertaining. Most of the performers in the soundies were uncredited, sadly, we'll never know who most of the talents in the soundies are, but I gotten to know who some of the talents are featured in the soundies. Many were regulars in the soundies, and many were actual performers around Harlem nightclubs, especially the women, who were chorus girls and dancers at popular Harlem nightclubs. The lead dancer in this soundie was in all of Lynn Albritton soundies. These soundies really are a great source of info, if you want to know what entertainment and life was like back in the 40's. The soundies featured artists who aren't known today, but back then they were popular. Lynn Albritton, was a great piano player, but info on her is very hard to find.
