James, a self-taught piano player, he made a career playing the city’s brothels.

He had an instant hit with the “whorehouse tune” “The Duck’s Yas-Yas-Yas,” “a popular St. Louis party song.” The song’s title is explained by quoting the lyrics more fully: “Shake your shoulders, shake ‘em fast, if you can’t shake your shoulders, shake your yas-yas-yas.” He made a number of other recordings (some mildly pornographic) under various pseudonyms. One of the more obscene tunes was a version of “Steady Grinding’,” true to the original of the song, which he recorded with Dorothea Trowbridge on August 2, 1933. Read more on Last.fm.
