It's hard to believe that after Volumes One and Two of Nick Hollywood's fantastic White Mink/Black Cotton compilations that a third would be able to deliver, but this does. Black Cotton contains an eclectic mix of tracks, some bold choices delivering a less obvious selection of music, one that takes a less well worn route through music of the past. The white mink side offers a similarly diverse range of music, again, not taking the obvious crowd pleasing route. It works. A fabulous collection that will grow on you. I was lucky enough to get my copy at the last White Mink, and haven't stopped playing it since!

So happy this album came out just before Christmas-that's my Christmas presents sorted! A fantastic listen for those who love vintage style swing or those who prefer the more modern dancy beats. My personal favourites are Katzenjammer's Demon Kitty Rag-such an uplifting dancing track, or the clever swingy twist on Crazy in Love- which gives a real flair for the Great Gatsby era. I would highly recommend this for anyone interested in 1920's-30s inspired sounds or generally anyone with a decent taste in music!

Another great album in the White Mink: Black Cotton series. This is now the third volume and it is still as great to listen to as the very first volume. For me this is like delving into a chocolate box as there are tracks here that I know quite well, especially the older ones, but some I have never heard before.

Some people seem to think that Swing is dead and just a piece of nostalgia, with perhaps a few artistes turning up here and there, but think again, with Electro Swing the craze is still very much alive bringing a whole new generation into listening to this type of music, and introducing them to all the old dances. This compilation is great to listen to by yourself or for playing at a party.

There are some great tracks on this album which is well worth getting, whether downloading or buying the physical cd, as are the other two volumes. In all this is great for both young and old.

Good album. Selection is good and chilling.
I went to the 2014 London Electro Swing organised by White Mink Black Cotton.. anecdotal but it was amazing:)

I bought all 3 volumes at the same time. Delivery was brilliant, all arrived the following day (prime). My favourite is volume 3.

Every so often a sequel actually adds to a series. Godfather. Alien. Toy Story spring to mind as examples.
This is one such. To my mind the vintage side here is the best and most accessible in the series yet, while the electro swing side delivers a wider than before, but carefully curated cross-section of the electro swing scene. This CD is pure class and adds brilliantly to the sounds on 1 and 2. Essential.

I bought this as a gift along with the other two albums, and my friend has it on in the car all the time.
