Doo Dob Sha Bam - A Rhythm & Blues Dance Party

One of my favourite rock ‘n’ roll blogs is Rocker Stomp where you can find not only music but features on all aspects of the rockin’ scene in Spain – cars, clothes, gals and festivals. The music on the blog is in the form of compilations put together by DJs and guest compilers and it covers the gamut of rockin’ music including rockabilly, doowop, rhythm ‘n’ blues and instrumental rock ‘n’ roll. So you can imagine I was very flattered to be invited to put together a compilation for Rocker Stomp.

What I’ve come up with is a whole mess of 1950’s R&B put together with dancers in mind. Most of the artists and tracks on the comp are well known to long time R&B fans, but there are a few rarities thrown in. If you’re fairly new to this kind of music then this is an ideal intro to real rockin’ rhythm ‘n’ blues. If you’ve already got most of these tracks download anyway and enjoy the program! Thanks to Javi at Rockerstomp for the covers.

This is a very fine site, one of the very best, and this is a very fine post. One of the best aspects of the posts here (as opposed to rockerstomp) is the full discography! Without that - where should I look for more of the same? Or decide whether it's a duplicate of something I already have? Keep up the good work - and if you could post some discographical information on this comp, I'd be gladder!

Sir! Your collection is not only musically great but also constructed in perfect way. Some of the Rocker Stomp collections doesn´t fit so well with itunes (information is messed, songs are in disorder etc).

Thanks for the hard work!

Man, this blog f***in' RULES! Fantastic comp! The best post here since Jubilee Records doo wop platters! I wish 2 things: 1. To post in the near future a compilation that i'm lookin' for ages, "Mule,Milk & Firewater" and 2. When you found the time, to write an article on my zine 'bout those "Rumble","Boppin'","Paragons Meet the Jesters" comps. You're an ACE man! Keep the rocks rollin'!

Cheers!
