A couple of great tracks, but no more than that,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: White Mink Black Cotton: Electro Swing vs Speakeasy Jazz (Audio CD)
I'm a little disappointed with this album. I think it's quite pricey for what it is.
The electro swing Disc 1 has a couple of great tracks (Caravan Palace being one), but the rest begin to sound a bit samey, especially as each one goes on and on and on. A bit too much of the electro and not enough swing in the chosen tracks. I'm new to this genre, so still don't know the names of the stuff I like.
I took a punt on this CD and it hasn't paid off as much as I'd like.
Disc 2 is definitely a keeper. Some great vintage classics.
Great digi pack cover, with lovely vintage pics and great styling in the new photos too.
A few good tracks for parties, but not deep enough to just listen too.
Next time, I will probably just buy a Caravan Palace album.
