"An absolutely sublime collection of obscure, swingin' instrumental gems from the 50s and 60s. Cheesy, goofy, campy....music that will go down great at any party you might throw. Some of the recordings are a bit scratchy, like they've been recorded directly from the original vinyl records, but this just adds to the delightfully trashy ambience. Not a bad track in the bunch, but the CD would be worth owning for The Hollywood Persuaders' rockin' "Drums-A-Go-Go" alone.Looking forward to getting all 6 volumes."

"This CD is great it captures the grit and raunch of 50's and 60's strip music. The sexual conotations in the music are over the top. Unlike the negative review down below the record hiss on some songs adds to the down and dirty bump and grind. I can imagine these being played at a burlesque show. Yes most of the music is from the 50's I know because I research what I like. Contrary to what one reviewer thinks the Jhon and Jackie song "Little Girl" is from 1958 it was originally written and recorded by the Rockabilly great, Gene Maltais. People have this impression that the 50's were a time of poodle skirts and Happy Days, how wrong they are. Some of the most dirtest music came from those "innocent" times albeit on smaller labels. Most of these bands I can tell wouldnt've even been touched by the majors in the 50's or early 60's. Grab em' up while you can the price is worth it. Although the other volumes you can find cheaper else where you can count on me getting all of them! Rare songs you won't find anywhere else!"

"Some of the raunchiest, sleaziest, most glouriously outdated rock 'n' roll you'll ever hear. Back in the days when striptease left something to the imagination, strip clubs would often come with a band. They would blast out sleazy jazz or rock 'n' roll. The cover basically shows you what is inside this disc. Perfect music from roaming the streets reeking of hard liqour. This music just reeks of sleaze and bands who wouldn't be found playing outside strip clubs. It's remarkable that they even recorded, let alone these 45s survived up to this day. Like most music of it's type, its sexy but never really sexual. Just a girl in sexy lingerae, nothing more, nothing less. If you like David Rose's "The Stripper", and are wondering where to go from there, this is a good comp to pick up."
