Inspired by the call of the wild and the primitive beat, this collection of voodoo exotica comes from the vaults of the Swingin' Dick's 78 Social event series, renowned the world over as "The Original Gramophone Operative." The event's collection of shellac 78rpm records is shared here for the listener's edification. Join the enigmatic Swingin' Dick as he spins his unique brand of jungle swing and tribal rhythms, ten inches at a time! Many of these sides are either previously unissued promo pressings or see their first inclusion on compilation here. Recorded directly from their battered 78 platters and remastered for your aural satisfaction, it's time to embrace the hiss and crackle of authentic swing records from the '30s and '40s. With jazz hotter than the tropics, packed with the essence of both the rhythm and the blues, these tunes will have you swingin' and swayin' till you start sweatin'! The sleeve is inspired by vintage shellac covers. Includes tracks by Joe Loss & His Orchestra, Duke Ellington and His Cotton Club Orch., The Bobby True Trio, Juan Tizol & His Orchestra, Bob Crosby's Bob Cats, The Mills Brothers, Sidney Bechet, Miff Ferrie & His Ferrymen, Charlie Barnet & His Orchestra, and Ambrose & His Orchestra.
