Here's Dusty Ballroom's second set of sides -- a rather eclectic, swingin' blend of some 1940s jump blues, '50s exotic mambo, kinky doo-wop, wild Eastern surf and Hawaiian Rock n' Roll, a coupl'a burlesque instrumentals, and even a bit of groovy twist and soul. Or as Harvey summed it up so neat: "Anyway You Wanta!" This record is part of an on-going series dedicated to some often over looked golden age dancefloor thrillers. Stag-O-Lee dearly hope you dig this as much as they do and perhaps you will tune in on the next volume as well. Elmo Lewis is part of the Dusty Ballroom Collective, shakin' the Berlin analog music scene since 2008. As mentioned on Volume 1 (STAGO 120LP, 2018), over time you need to give nods and winks to the staff of several venues, lots of live artists wonderfully dedicated to old music, a few select DJs and of course those jumpin' and jivin' cats and kittens oddly enough returning to our all-nighters -- you all rock and roll! For the present selection, Elmo wishes to especially thank Adam, Laura, Nathaniel, and Franziska for their ongoing support to dig in the dust and helping keep the vibes up and the time tunnel's eyelid open. Features Yma Sumac, Stefi Akos, The Bonnie Sisters, The Chips, Harvey Fuqua, The Quarter Notes, Sounds Incorporated, Ted Heath & His Orchestra, Puddle Jumpers, Slim & Slam, Louis Jordan & His Timpany Five, Eartha Kitt, Jay Epae, Lil Anthony & The Imperials, Mel Tormé, Ron Goodwin Orchestra, and Barney Kessel.
