Various Artists - Twistin' Time. Vol. 1. Knight Records. Knight LP 001.

This is not the sleeve to Twistin' Time Vol. 1.
An LP for a change. This one is a compilation of various twist tracks brought together by one of the USA's current top twisters, Tubby Chess. As he states, "The songs on this album represent the archaeological remains of a dance craze that hit this big, blue marble a few decades ago. It literally shook every nook and cranny of every country - allowing entertainers (and self-perceived entertainers, as you will hear) of every stripe to exploit this stupid fad. Out of the avalanche of twist records released, we have culled the most rockin', novel, stupid, inept and twistacular examples from an amazing time in American history."

Cheers, TC.

(Please note, my scanner isn't big enough to take a 12" record, the light is too bad to grab a photo, and I can't find a copy on the web, so no cover scan for this one. Sorry!)
