This 31 songs compilation album gives a good overview of the recent albums released by Rhythm Bomb. Every genre that fits in the rock’n’roll spectrum is well represented here: hillbilly and honky tonk with a western beat(The Shadowmen, Fia Sco), traditional rockabilly (the Roy Kay Trio, the Kabooms), rhythm’n’blues (Nico Duportal, Jai Malano, Rusty Pinto), Rock’n’roll with a jive influence (Gone Hepsville) wild (Frantic Rockers, The Rip Ems Ups, Jittery Jack) or with a 60’s feel (Ricky Fabian) and some neo-rockabilly too (Levi Dexter).
The selection is, with a few exception (Crystal and Runnin’ Wild) very good.
Besides being perfect for parties, it’s also the perfect record to discover the good work of Rhythm Bomb and it’ll sure make you want to dig deeper in their back catalog.
