In conjunction with London’s Jukebox Jam club night we bring you regular doses of the wildest, rawest original Rhythm and Blues of the ‘50s and early ‘60s on DJ friendly collectable 45rpm format. Linked by a sequential catalogue numbering system, each release will also boast a unique label design and title, making them unlike any other reissue on the market.
Our first release on the Jukebox Jam subsidiary showcased the production talents of New Orleans’ finest Dave Bartholomew on Rose Mitchell’s haunting rendition of ‘Baby Please Don’t Go’ (now sold out everywhere!). For Jukebox Jam number four it’s time for Dave himself to take centre stage with two solo sides from his prolific spell with Imperial Records, both with some distinctly Latin/Caribbean seasoning, hence the naming of this label ‘Mambo’.
You’d be hard pushed to find a record which sounds more N’Awlins than ‘Shrimp and Gumbo’ – a raucous percussion heavy party starter perfect for any Creole Carnival. And in fact, perfect for any party, be it a full house at your local supper club dance, neighbourhood jukebox joint or your back garden bar-b-que!
The flip-side is an earlier recording from Dave, and again one which could only have come from NOLA, and could only really have been made by Bartholomew himself. His lyrics might be in jest but the band certainly aren’t messing around and they pull off a sound so authentic that you’d imagine it must surely be Cuban players responsible. All in all a nice package then, two bags of Mambo-Mardi Gras Gris-Gris sure to keep you safe from all manner of Voodoo ill will!
