Swingin' Dancefloor Sounds To Blow Your Top'. Double LP-edition on 180 gram vinyl, presented in a heavy gatefold cover, and including linernotes and track info printed on the innersleeves. New musical styles don't appear over night. Rock and Roll didn't explode out of a vacuum and Elvis wasn't the Big Bang (more like the start of rapid inflationary expansion). Before Elvis, there was a massively diverse R&B scene in the States, which today's record buyer is currently enjoying the discovery of through a wealth of compilations and reissue 7-inches. In turn, this music was a development of the sound that came before it, with many of the key players having been instrumental in the swing bands of the '30s and early '40s. 'Savage Rhythm' is a compilation of this fantastic music, documenting the direct lineage from the Jazz and Swing of the '30s through to a more R&B-ready sound of the early '40s, signposting the way ahead for what was to become Jump Blues and eventually Rock and Roll. Compiled by Brighton-based DJ, music lover and vinyl junkie Shamblin Sexton, 'Savage Rhythm' is put together to make the party swing hard. As much a ticket to the good times as a history lesson, 'Savage Rhythm' delivers both with urbane style and swagger. The double vinyl is packaged in a gatefold sleeve with liner notes by Shamblin Sexton. With original artwork by graphic designer Chris Sick, this compilation is a must-have for the vintage kids and R&B heads, as well as the electro-swing DJs and club-goers. 'Savage Rhythm' swings a hefty punch of serious, quality music that is as vibrant and essentially vital today as it was 75 years ago.
