out of stock


this is a cracking compilation from start to finish, with Southern swamp rock, spicy New Orleans rhythms and Northern city blues, shining a deserved spotlight on 1958’s delicacies lost amongst the sands of time.

Link Wray’s ‘Rumble’ and Bill Doggett’s ‘Hold It’ are the only two big hits included on this collection, which leaves plenty of room for both long-forgotten records by established artists and on fabulous obscurities by long-forgotten artists. Guitar and sax-led rockers, slinky organ stompers, Latin groovers – all in all, 60 mighty instrumental stompers from 1958, R&B-style.
