Firstly I'm just going to say I actually love this album and strongly recommend anyone to buy it. From the first track you get a taste of what's to come, some sax lead rocking music that makes you feel dirty in a good way. Highlights of the record for me are The Wiggle, Honey Rock and Groovy although I can happily listen through this album several times over without getting bored, such a good mix of tracks and style. I've played this album to most of my friends and everyone from those that are into chartsy pop music to hardcore rockabilly's and psychobilly's love this one. Also keep an ear out for the track "louie overseas a studio session" i won't ruin it for you but let's just say its special.
Only down part is the lack of sleeve notes (but the pics make up for this)

Buy it and give your ears a treat.

Seventy one minutes of obscure 50's, mostly sax driven Rock n Roll and Swing with no sleeve notes and too many instrumentals . . . and yet I loved it. For fans of the more 'off centre' tracks on the recent Mad Mike Monsters compilitions (two tracks of which appear here), you can almost picture in your mind's eye a 50's Las Vegas exotic dancer doing her act as this CD assaults your senses . . . or is that just me? Encourage the wife or girlfriend to listen!

HASH(0x9000ec00) out of 5 stars Speechless Awesome!!! 2 May 2006
By Cool Cat - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This CD is great it captures the grit and raunch of 50's and 60's strip music. The sexual conotations in the music are over the top. Unlike the negative review down below the record hiss on some songs adds to the down and dirty bump and grind. I can imagine these being played at a burlesque show. Yes most of the music is from the 50's I know because I research what I like. Contrary to what one reviewer thinks the Jhon and Jackie song "Little Girl" is from 1958 it was originally written and recorded by the Rockabilly great, Gene Maltais. People have this impression that the 50's were a time of poodle skirts and Happy Days, how wrong they are. Some of the most dirtest music came from those "innocent" times albeit on smaller labels. Most of these bands I can tell wouldnt've even been touched by the majors in the 50's or early 60's. Grab em' up while you can the price is worth it. Although the other volumes you can find cheaper else where you can count on me getting all of them! Rare songs you won't find anywhere else!

An absolutely sublime collection of obscure, swingin' instrumental gems from the 50s and 60s. Cheesy, goofy, that will go down great at any party you might throw. Some of the recordings are a bit scratchy, like they've been recorded directly from the original vinyl records, but this just adds to the delightfully trashy ambience. Not a bad track in the bunch, but the CD would be worth owning for The Hollywood Persuaders' rockin' "Drums-A-Go-Go" alone.
Looking forward to getting all 6 volumes.

HASH(0x90b1c600) out of 5 stars GO BABY GO GO (3.5 stars) 29 Jun. 2005
By TimothyFarrell22 - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Some of the raunchiest, sleaziest, most glouriously outdated rock 'n' roll you'll ever hear. Back in the days when striptease left something to the imagination, strip clubs would often come with a band. They would blast out sleazy jazz or rock 'n' roll. The cover basically shows you what is inside this disc. Perfect music from roaming the streets reeking of hard liqour. This music just reeks of sleaze and bands who wouldn't be found playing outside strip clubs. It's remarkable that they even recorded, let alone these 45s survived up to this day. Like most music of it's type, its sexy but never really sexual. Just a girl in sexy lingerae, nothing more, nothing less. If you like David Rose's "The Stripper", and are wondering where to go from there, this is a good comp to pick up.

HASH(0x918a4054) out of 5 stars First volume of a series is always the best 2 Aug. 2013
By Phil (San Diego) - Published on
Format: Audio CD
A whopping 31 tracks. I had no idea what to expect when I picked this up in the indie record store years ago. These are largely instrumentals suitable for accompanying burlesque stage performances, combined with late fifties - early sixties small rock combo instrumentals in the style of "Tequila". As with that #1 song, many of these instrumentals have distinguishing vocal bits, catch phrases or punch lines that interject when the song pauses or even when it doesn't.

Truth be told, even though most of these songs seem to wind up on a lot of similarly themed compilations, I could take or leave half of them. But what makes this collection a near must-have is that it collects up many prize tracks in one place. The highlights are definitive, iconic examples of their genre. It's pretty amazing to have in one compilation perfect songs that so define a style such as The Genteels' "Take It Off", the Hollywood Persuaders' "Drums-a-Go-Go", and Little Richard's backing band The Upsetters leading off the batting order. It's credited here and on YouTube as being titled "The Strip" but a listen to their original album reveals that it's probably actually titled "The Upsetter", like the band name ("The Strip" is a different instrumental on the same album).

There are also some period pieces that provide amusement. I could imagine "Trashcan" being played in a set with the Trashmen's "Surfin' Bird". Jack Hammer's "The Wiggle" is a dance craze that never got started but the song is a first rate keeper - who couldn't love a song that's mostly, "Let's wiggle / wiggle waggle wiggle"? Two different instrumentals by two different groups, both titled "The Whip", replete with sound effects that would make Devo proud. The Vikings' "Nicotine" uses vocal interjections to send up slogans of cigarette ads of the time. And let's not forget John and Jackie, who perform one of the rare vocal numbers here. John carries the melody (though he doesn't have a distinctive voice) while a cute-voiced Jackie endows the chorus with mounting orgasmic vocalizations.

There are a half dozen CDs in this series. Start with this one, they front-loaded this series with some of the best songs here. There's also a similar series that's quite a bit of fun, which starts with Frolic Diner Part One: 31 Wild Swingin' Food & Exotic Instrumentals From the 50's & 60's.

HASH(0x918a4204) out of 5 stars What this CD Is 20 Jun. 2000
By Britt A. Green - Published on
Format: Audio CD
...This album is a collection of different songs used in strip clubs during the 1960s. All of these songs are incredibly catchy and clever. My favorite one would have to be "Little Girl" by John and Jackie.
This album goes over *really* well at parties. If your looking for something to lighten up your next swanky shindig, may I highly recommend this one?
