V.A. - Spring Fever: 28 Easter Nuggets For Your Spring Season
Thanks to SummerSouvenir (RH) for this easter gift
" Spring and Easter themed edition in Bear Family's Season's Greetings CD series.
The musical journey through time includes selected tracks from four decades, spring-like songs and popular songs from 1936 to 1963.
Cross-genre, from jazz and pop to country and R&B to rock 'n' roll - and always hard on the topic - roosters and hens go crazy here, rock & roll the eggs and the Easter bunny dances!
Rocking with hot guitars comes from Vilas Craig, Link Wray and Tina's former better half: Ike Turner.
Danceable teen rock can also be heard! Above all Bobby Rydell with a rare number as well as some Doo Wop formations like the Pentagons and The Velvets.
Yes, the spring fever. Everyone feels them as soon as the first warm rays of sunshine awaken nature to new life. Good keyword, this compilation lets us awaken to new life, even in Corona times! With these rhythms and the swinging sound, Easter eggs can be painted in no time at all. Or, better still, get on the dance floor! It's Spring Fever!
The musical spring
This Bear Family CD has it all again. We are once again delivering a large musical range from the period from 1936 to 1963. But far from it, the oldest recording is not jazz, it comes from the Dixon Brothers and is pure, original country blues. Country music in its traditional form is also provided by Bill Wimberly & The Country Rhythm Boys.
But jazz can also be heard from such illustrious artists as Django Reinhardt, Ramsey Lewis and the Andrews Sisters. In addition to hot rock 'n' roll and rockabilly rhythms, there is a lot to discover from pop to twist, including famous artists with rare recordings, such as Pat Boone's classic 'April Love', here as a rare film version, or Ray Anthony with the Bookends and his rare twist version of the 'Bunny Hop'~ Bear Family
