While folks who turn out semi-authorized compilations of rare rock & roll must spend months on end digging through stacks of dusty vinyl in search of rare gems, the people at Collector Records in Germany have blazed a new trail with the disc, Savage Rockin' Girls, by unearthing an unusually hip beer commercial, "That Regal Feeling," a radio spot for Regal, a brand of suds brewed in New Orleans that boasts some hot guitar picking and cool vocals from an unknown female singer who sure knows how to make the product sound tasty. While that isn't quite the highlight of Savage Rockin' Girls, the tune does suit this disc, which collects 35 ultra-obscure rockin' sides from the '50s, all featuring high-attitude female vocalists. While nearly everything here moves well enough, a few of the tracks are up-tempo country rather than proper rock & roll, and there are a few covers on deck that may be good fun but unwittingly reveal their own inferiority to the original hits (Nedra Price can't beat Wanda Jackson on "Let's Have a Party," and while the Tremolons have a lot of courage taking on "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," they sound more than a little anemic compared to Jerry Lee Lewis). But there are lots of solid rock & roll sides to be found here, including Kathy Zee's rollicking "Buzzin'," Pamela Law's slinky and sensual "When the Band Plays the Blues," the emphatic "Gonna Be Loved" by Linda & the Epics, Helen Thomas' exercise in pre-P.C. hep talk "Chattanooga Drummer Man," and "Dallas Chiggers," Mamie Martin's musical essay on the importance of pest control. The booklet includes plenty of label photos and cool graphics, and the audio is good despite the fact nearly everything seems to have been sourced from vinyl discs. Next time it's ladies night at your local roadhouse, throw this compilation into the mix and let the gals help you get the party started in style.

Enjoy

Four Jacks And A Jill - Fables (1969)

Four Jacks And A Jill - Fables (1969)

Four Jacks & A Jill is one of few South African groups to score a Stateside hit. Their folksy tale "Master Jack," made the Top 20, nesting at #18, June 8, 1968. The members were Glenys Lynne (Jill), Clive Harding (bass), Till Hanamann (guitar), Bruce Barks (guitar), and Tony Hughes (drums). Glenys sung lead and had a voice that was undeniably folksy, rather she tried to sing that style or not, everything came out that way. Their second single "Mr. Nico" made the States chart too, but barely, entering the Pop 100 and immediately stalling at #98. The four guys sans Jill originally formed in 1964 and went through two name changes before adding Glenys and becoming Four Jacks & A Jill. Out-the-box they scored a South African hit entitled "Timothy." Unfortunately, they never graced the charts in the States after "Mr. Nico," but remained viable and quite popular in South Africa.

South African beat band formed in 1965. Pete Clifford had played with the Jesters and Georgie Fame and visited South Africa for the first time in 1964 while being a member of Dusty Springfield’s backing band. He also played with Tom Jones.
In 1965 he returned to South Africa and formed the 004’s. Brian Gibson and Jack Russell had been members of the Victors, who backed French artist Teddy Raye on tour. When the band broke up Gibson joined the Laurie Jay Combo and Russell got a job as production manager with Vox. Soon they joined the 004’s.
The band was signed by CBS and recorded some singles. They also backed Gene Vincent on his Durban performance.
Their only album was released in 1966.
Nick Doktor (ex-Leemen Limited) replaced Peter Stember in 1966.
Gibson left the band in 1967 and was replaced by Barry Mitchell (ex-In Crowd). The band recorded with Johnny Kongos’ groups Floribunda Rose and Scrugg in 1967.
