Description

For a second time round, delve into the ‘Rockinitis’ sounds of mid-fifties to early-sixties black dance music. Juke joint gear, as chosen by London based record-slinger, Diddy Wah, and Stag-O-Lee’s troublemaker-in-chief, R-Man. If your nights are mis-a-ble and your days blue, salvation can be found right here. These selections aren’t just a mild pick me-up, this is full-blown electric guitar blues to make you stand up and shake your hips.
