Product description

Product Description

On Bob Stanley''s label, following up the acclaimed SOHO CONTINENTAL, here is a collection of coffee bar sounds from 50s and 60s London, the soundtrack to the birth of rock''n''roll, Gaggia machines, capuccinos, jukeboxes blasting out UK born sounds for boys in leather and beehived girls. Long lost 45s on classic labels like Top Rank and Oriole, with tales of ton-up boys causing chaos (Carve Up, Ambush, Teenage Delinquent) to more sedate tales of going ''Hot Chocolate Crazy'', Praise for SOHO CONTINENTAL: € Croydon Municipal have constructed a marvellously evocative sound map of the area and the times... if you can lose yourself to these intoxicating sounds, perhaps you can re-discover what excitement in music really is. € Louder Than War € A swingin' safari of exotic sounds harkening back to a more eclectic Soho scene € Second Dis

Martin Green and Bob Stanley's follow up to the excellent Soho Continental explore the exciting sounds of 1950's Soho's Coffee Bar scene. Frothy pop, twangy instrumentals and songs about juvenile delinquency perfectly evoke the exuberant world of London's first teenagers. Sleeve notes by DJ Martin Green.

Soho Expresso, capture's the mood of the fifties Coffee Bars,as I was spending a lot of time there drinking coffee, listening to this great music, and chilling out with friends as a teenager, this CD sent me dancing around my home, as my memories came flooding back, thank you Martin Green, for a wonderful experience of well chosen records.

I recall the times when these recordings made. Some wonderful recordings were released. None of these could be included. The disc is really hard to listen to completely. I'm afraid it's heading for the PDSA charity shop.
