Stars of the Rhythm Riot 17

Full programme scans (jpeg format) & few live recordings. Fortunately I have a friend that lives in Camber where the Rhythm Riot is held yearly every November. Unfortunately due to my location in the UK I can't afford go to both the Rockabilly Rave and the Rhythm Riot. That's where my good buddy Dave 'Tooks' Tookey (thanks for the programme buddy) and YouTube for giving me the feeling that I was there...

A 1940's Bing Christmas with The Andrew Sisters

10 inch L.P vinyl rip
SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN' TO TOWN









A Rockin' Christmas Ball


JINGLE BELL SLIDE

DOWNLOAD

I have dug the two Jack Scott Christmas tracks since I first heard them on the 'Teenage Moon' L.P that was released in the UK in the mid 1980's. 'Santa Bring Her Back' comes from Dale Watson's 2001 CD 'Christmas Time in Texas'. I love a Christmas song you can jive to (I'm the worlds worst dancer!) The Davis Sisters 'The Christmas Boogie' rounds off my first festive post. The next one is a Bing Crosby 10 inch vinyl rip!

B and the Bops

 
At this precise moment in time (26th November 2013) I'm working on saving up enough money to get to see this band play a live gig on their home soil in Zagreb, Croatia. The first reason being I just love this band, and the second is that Croatia has always been on my list of got to go to places.

The Rhythm River Trio

 
 
THE RHYTHM RIVER TRIO - YOU KNOW I'M MEAN
 

This excellent London based band were formed in 2008. They play early country style rockabilly. They also write their own material and like to stay as close to the original sound of early rockabilly as possible. I saw them open the Rockabilly Rave 14 with an amazing set and performance. Their first CD 'The Wild Side of Life' was released on Rhythm Bomb Records in 2012 it is a fine collection of original songs and well chosen (and played) covers.

Dave Short - Vocals / Rhythm Guitar
Bruno Pannone - Double Bass
Morgan Willis - Lead Guitar

The Rhythm River Trio have recently recorded songs for their new CD 'Just Honky Tonkin Around' at Sugar Ray's vintage studio. The artwork below is not the final edit it still needs to be tweaked! But it definitely has that vintage look to it. I can not wait to get my hands on a copy.

RE-UP 'CARIBBEAN'

 
I've been noticing that this post has been getting a few views just lately, so I checked out the link and found out it was no longer valid. If you FIND a link that's no longer working and you want the file just leave a comment and I'll get it up and running again.
 
Mitchell Torok was born in Houston, Texas on October 28, 1929 and became known as Mexican Joe after a song he wrote for Jim Reeves.
Caribbean is a nice up-tempo number while the flipside 'Weep Away' is a pure Country & Western weeper.
Two more discs from Mitchell appeared on the UK London label; ‘Hootchy Kootchy Henry (From Hawaii)’ and ‘The Haunting Waterfall’.
He did have a tour of the UK with Johnnie Ray and the John Barry Seven in 1957.
 
Mitchell Torok with the Louisiana Hayride Band.
Originally issued on 78 in February 1954. 45 vinyl released mid 1954.
