Here are thirty slices of hot, rocking blues recorded and performed for just one purpose - dancing, getting down and having a real good time. This music was made for jukeboxes and specifically in African American areas in the Unite States be they rural or urban. The music on this compilation and its companion 'Juke Joint Jump - Boogie Like You Wanna' was recorded between 1944 and 1960. The urban juke joints or 'clubs' especially those in Chicago, were very influential in the rise of R&B across America during the 1950s and most of the big stars of blues performed regularly in these clubs and this is the era in which most of the music on these two volumes emanated. Despite the passage of time these 30 recordings rock with a vengeance that should satisfy anyone's dancing feet. So, just like they did back in the day, roll back the carpet, pour yourself a drink and just let the good times roll.

Genre: Exotica, Easy Listening / Label: Jasmine Records

Widely perceived as California's prototype Hippie, the enigmatic, eternally-cool Eden Ahbez was an occasional songwriter and musician, who suddenly shot to fame in 1948 when Nat King Cole topped the US charts with "Nature Boy", a song he'd written a year or so earlier. He subsequently became a cult figure, who continued to write and produce, sporadically, in a wide range of musical styles, throughout the 1950s.In 1960 he recorded a one-off LP, 'Eden's Island', which juxtaposed beatnik poetry with Exotica, and has gone on to become regarded as a benchmark album of the Exotica genre.This unique compilation reissues the LP, plus a non-album B-side and an outtake, alongside sixteen further bonus tracks of other artists singing/playing his songs, including Nat King Cole, Frank Sinatra, Bobby Darin, Eartha Kitt, Frankie Laine, Sam Cooke, etc.It hardly needs adding that some serious rarities are contained herein, which have never previously appeared on CD.

The slide guitar technique found popularity during the late 1920s and the 1930s especially in the Mississippi delta as many musicians began to look for individual styles to enhance their popularity.
The 28 tracks here feature some of the greatest exponents of the style on a selection of tracks that may not have been hits or even in some instances have been released until many years after their recording. Several of the names like John Lee, John Dudley, Dan Pickett and Pinetop Slim are little known outside of blues collector circles. Others though did enjoy fame across the world for their music and records like, Muddy Waters, Robert Nighthawk, Johnny Shines and Homesick James.The influence of these musicians began to permeate into rock & roll music during the 1960s.Compiled and conceived by noted blues expert, Neil Slaven.

There have been countless ROY ORBISON compilations over the years, but all too often overdubbed or stereo versions are used, which possess neither the presence nor the bite of his original mono 45rpm versions. Indeed, the best way to listen to Roy is to hear those original singles in glorious, pristine mono, sounding exactly as they did when you bought them all those decades ago. This compilation presents his first seventeen singles, released between 1956-62, on Je-Wel, Sun, RCA Victor and Monument, with one omission; the first, non-hit version of 'Ooby Dooby' (NB: his Sun re-recording, which is included, was his first hit). Also included are his early million sellers 'Only The Lonely', 'Blue Angel', 'Runnin' Scared', 'Cryin'', and 'Dream Baby'. This is an intriguing body of work, and it is interesting to compare his very early 45s with the ten peerless singles herein, which he cut for Monument.
