Bestimix 54: Greg's Greats (The Shellac Collective)

Sex and music is an explosive combination - just ask Lady Gaga, Prince or Britney Spears! But as this Bestimix from the Maestro of Bestival's Black Dahlia Tent, Greg Butler, demonstrates, the two have made for killer tunes from way before all the aforementioned were an itch in their daddy's pants! All of the tracks in this latest Greg's Greats musical cocktail have been recorded from the original 78rpm Gramophone records and are no less than 55 years old with some dating back as far as 1928! Listen out for "My Daddy Rocks Me" from Tampa Red's Hokum Band recorded in 1929 with Frankie 'Half Pint' Jaxon on Vocals - an outrageous five foot two something transvestite from Kansas - who puts in a orgasmic performance that would have definitely been banned by the BBC!

So if you're up for good time music - The Black Dahlia Cocktail Lounge at Bestival is the place to be!

Yes, Frankie is definitely the best "female" Blues singer to perform "My Daddy Rocks Me". I've only got the May Alix with Jimmy Noone version in my 78 collection yet. And, wow, I'm looking for Wilmoth Houdini's "Black But Sweet", too. You have a damn good Hokum/Jive/Calypso set there!
