T- Bird Party! A Swangin' Slew O' Greasy R&B 1957-61 (2000 - Crypt?)

If it comes for mostly unknown R&B acts of the 50s, with goofy lyrics, greasy raw sound and a campy essence (Esquerita's style), then i'll go apin' CRAZY! This digital platter is full of these elements. Gritty rhythm & blues (even some jump blues) that sometimes intrudes the soul area, galvanized specially for dancers and wild wild drunken parties! It contains several dynamites but the one that makes the difference here, is the "Du De Squat"  hymn, the original (i think...) recording by Little Luther, made famous decades later by the sloppiest party band ever, the A-Bones featuring the world's best worst singer and Sultan of Squat, the Great Gaylord! No further info 'bout the label though in the covers, but I'm quite sure the master of rude and primitive pow ,Tim Warren and his Crypt Records are behind this! Loads of corny wailin' FUN here! "DIG IN BABY, DRINK UP AND TURN IT UP"!
