Some of the gentlemen are having problems with their partners; Gene Phillips has a Punkin’ Head Woman, and Smiley Lewis is telling Miss Roxy she is a Shame, Shame, Shame, while Lowell Fulson begs of his lady Don't Be So Evil. The ladies themselves are in fine form getting what they want; Laurie Tate sings Rock Me Daddy, Marylyn Scott aka The Carolina Blues Girl performs the Beer Bottle Boogie, and Chubby Newsome needs proof of the guy having Greenbacks for a night of fun during Where's The Money, Honey, and Agnes Riley is enjoying a Big Fat Hot Dog.
The party makers are hitting all the joints in town; Eddie Mack announces he’s Gonna Hoot And Holler Saturday Night, Roy Brown has the Bar Room Blues, Jimmy Liggins is declaring I Ain't Drunk! while his brother Joe Liggins is having a party during Whiskey, Women & Loaded Dice. With sex and misogyny on the brain are; Chuck Willis, I Rule My House, The "5" Royales are not singing about a washing machine during Laundromat Blues, and the previously mentioned Wynonie Harris brings the album to a climax with She Just Won’t Sell No More.
When known, the sleeve notes from the compilation/ re-issue producer and Dee Jay Mark Armstrong will provide information on the supporting band and where session information is available. The album is topped off with the best possible sound quality possible from our mastering team at our El Paso, Texas, Studio. The concept is lavishly decorated by design artist Alf Button’s Revenge, and the sleeve is made from top-quality eco-friendly cardboard specially designed to avoid the use of plastic and be environmentally friendly.
Koko Mojo Records endeavours to use some lesser-known and for some, perhaps more obscure titles and adds something unexpected to every album. The album is ideal for Dee Jays to fill the dance floor with, and for home listening or while cruising around.
You are listening to music from the past and preserving the future! Koko Mojo Records “often imitated, never duplicated”
All that remains is to say, “Crank up the volume and dig these musical gems.
