On the thirty-song Bop-a-Rama Volume Two, there is a mixture of several bop beat styles, hot boppin’ Rockabilly, bop Blues, and a sprinkling of Cajun and Hillbilly.
Featured artists include Rockabillies and Rock ‘n’ Rollers; Dale Hawkins, Lucky Plank, Jeff Stone, Cleve Warnock, Sleepy LaBeef, and several others. The roots music emanates from Bluegrass artists Flatt and Scruggs, there is a Cajun vocal rocker by Burnell Martin and Hillbilly tempos from the tonsils of, Ben Hall and Wiley and Jessie Barkdull. The rockin’ Blues music is heard from a trio of Negro stars and one Caucasian; Chuck Berry, Billy Bland, Arthur "Big Boy" Crudup, and Ronnie Hawkins.
To end the album Rhythm Bomb Records, provide two recordings from their roster, German group Carolina and Her Rhythm Rockets and a wild American outfit the Frantic Rockers bring the action to a thunderous ending!
Atomicat endeavors to use some lesser-known and for some, perhaps more obscure titles and add something unexpected to every album. Most certainly one person’s bop can be another’s jive, and different clubs and countries do not dance at the same tempo, and we do not aim to preach only to give you danceable music.
