Electric Sweat. 14 Late Night R&B Popcorn Stompers
Oh yeah! It’s the 1950s and sweaty night clubs and dance venues are packed with young people wanting to leave their troubles behind to the rhythm of the newest sounds from Black America.
In the 1940s blues was speeded up to become Rhythm & Blues, and now it’s at its loudest, electric guitar loaded, hard drumming, harmonica wailing, screamy best.
Enjoy this small compilation of tunes and let the smoky club scene of the 1950s / early 1960s bring the party to your own home. These songs that were originally issued in 7″ 45 RPM singles that nowadays exchange hands for little fortunes among collectors!
