With liquid shellac flowing through his veins, it's fair to say that perennial Camp Bestival and Bestival fave Greg's Greats knows a thing or two about pre-acid house dance music. This chap only has to rummage through his 100,000-strong collection of 78s to give any DJ whippersnapper a taste of the original good stuff - and you can expect plenty of that on his exclusive Besti-mix, taking in 'golden era' rockabilly, big band jazz, jump up ballroom biz and old-school rhythm & blues.
John Peel (RIP) was a big fan and supporter of Greg, so it's fitting that the late, great Radio 1 DJ makes a special guest appearance in amongst the tunes. If you like what you hear, and we have more than a sneaky suspicion you will, then make sure you check out Greg and his Shellac Collective, at Bestival and Camp Bestival in the Black Dahlia tent this summer!
