Strip-o-Rama Vol. 4 (LP+CD)
Through the ages, stripteasing music has been stunningly eclectic, from the smoothest to the most electric of genres: blues of course, whose languor perfectly suits such erotic unravellings, but also rock n’ roll, R&B, jazz, rockabilly and more.
Spearheading the compilations concocted by the ever mischievous El Vidocq, the “Strip-O-Rama” series today reveals its 4th cheeky album, as daring and arousing as ever. Once again, Cupid has here sampled far and wide to better lubricate the task at hand: Beninese blues (Orchestre Typique’s “El Rego”), pure exotica (The Enchanters), doo-wop, ditties both pious (The Redwoods) and salacious (The Royal Jockers), hot Latin music (the aptly named “Burleska” by The Ambassadors), also smooth Latin music (Googie Rene), swinging bebop (Marlowe Morris Quintet), pop on speed (“Magic Lover Man” by the Trinidadian Aki Aleong), bizarre surf music (“Widgit” by the Surfer’s), etc., etc. All these songs have been drawn from amusingly suggestive 45-rpms dating from the 1950s and ’60s, with the notable twin peaks of ’58 and ’62!
Originally meant as background music to accompany your naughty unwrappings, these tunes prove in and of themselves simply irresistible!
