Jump, Jive, Harmonise

This is East LA's 60s Chicano garage/soul revue band Thee Midniters (or Thee Midnighters) with a filty blast of stuff, vocalist Little Willie G urging the listener to jump, jive and harmonise. They had some big regional hits with Land Of A Thousand Dances, Love Special Delivery and Whittier Boulevard and various members coming and going, one leaving to go to Los Lobos, and they still play today. Thee Midniters are also reckoned by some to be the first to use the double E in The, but I suspect that could be contested...
