Another Jubilee LP from Joan – a 1960 compilation of Josie and Jubilee sides recorded between 1951 and 1956. The front cover features the same group of would-be juvenile delinquents that posed surrealistically on the front cover of Rumble, although this time round they have been joined by a cool chick. Of course the presence of the bat may indicate that they are going to play rounders, a girly game which our American cousins call baseball.
Actually Joan has emailed me to say that Jubilee produced 5 LPs which sought to cash in on the West Side Story craze with front cover pictures of JD shenanigans. Where’s Offissah Krupke when you need him?
This compilation reaches further back than Rumble. The album was originally to feature two sides by The Marylanders (credited on the cover) but for some unknown reason these sides were replaced by two from The Teardrops. A bebopwino honourable mention to Deke Watson, whose “Why Does A Drink Make You Think?” is reminiscent of the low life tales of Mr. Bear. There is some surface noise on many of these recordings
Ripped at 192 kbps.
