Consumer Guide Reviews:

Shame Shame Shame [Vibration, 1975]
This bargain package includes: 1) title smash and follow-up, very similar but a little slower; 2) instrumental versions of same; 3) a song that reprises the smash riff and tells what a terrific dancer Disco Shirley is; 4) a recycled "Iko Iko"-style folk song; 5) several boy-girl duets; 6) other stuff. Very slap-dash, very expedient, and quite smashing. B+
