Reviews for: V/A - FOOT TAPPIN' & DANCE AT SCREAMIN' FESTIVAL VOL. 2

Review:

This second volume is more or less modeled upon the first, taking you with equal pleasure from Ella Fitzgerald to Roy Hall via Ray Price.
The main difference is in the balance between jump/rhythm'n'blues and hillbilly/honky tonk/western swing/rockabilly artists, the later being more present than on volume one.
There's certain songs I wouldn't have included like Louis Prima's Just A Gigolo/I Ain't Got Nobody (ok it's a dancin' set but I bet you can find more obscure but dancin' tune in Prima's catalog!) or Pee Wee King's Sugar Beet, a "poppish" ditty that sounds like a commercial and doesn't make justice to this giant of western swing.
Anyway it's a good complement to volume one.
Available here.
