VA: FOR DANCERS ONLY – Primal Beats From The Basement LP


In stock


Mercy Baby - Pleadin'

Schoolboy Cleve - She's Gone

For Dancer Only is the legendary club night of Bill Kealey, the hard-drinking, energetic collector and vinyl hunter from Dublin. Almost every weekend he is out and about with his 7″ vinyl case and makes the crowds happy. Since he’s been doing it for a few decades, he belongs to the absolute Champions League of those who deal with Rhythm & Blues of the 50s and all its varieties.
This is his first compilation and we claim it’s one of the best Stag-O-Lee has ever released. Linernotes:
For Dancers Only was formed in 2004 because at that time in Ireland there wasn’t even one club where we could go and listen or dance to rhythm and blues records. In the past 18 years we’ve grown from a local club in our hometown of Wexford to a truly international one in Dublin. We’ve been lucky enough to have had some of the finest dj’s/collectors in the world come and play for us and the support from our clientele from all over the world is beyond humbling. This lp represents the kind of music you might expect to hear if you ever venture down the basement in Thomas House, Dublin for one of our club nights. It also keeps alive the legacy of these great artists and musicians who cannot ever be forgotten.
