Earl Zinger & Don Rogall
No press release or info at time of going to the presses, so I'm struggling a bit with the back story. Let's keep it succinct, then: here's a collaboration featuring reggae singer Early Zinger croaking -- yes, croaking -- over some old sounding big band stuff. Slightly Tom Waits-ish, I guess. And everyone loves Tom Waits. Also, it's a 10". That is all I know.
Blues man Mighty Mike performs his one man band act on 'The Blues Of...', his very first record for the Stag-O-Lee imprint.

This record contains two original Mike tracks as well as covers of B. B. King and Billy Boy Arnold.

'Savage Rhythm' is brought together by Shamblin Sexton to help you get your swing on.

Sun Ra And His Arkestra visited our planet; they got together with The Jimmy Haskell Orchestra and they brought friends. They came to save the planet from Martians and ray-guns and 50ft women and they did it with eerie soundtrackery and the power of the theremin. Now they’re back and they come with stickers and signed screenprint artwork.

Jim Jam Gems is a kitschily titled series of collections put together by Duke Jens-O-Matic, a DJ and (presumably major) record collector. All the tracks are grabbed from his own collection, and they take us on a groovy journey into the heart of the 1950s world of exotica… Vol: 4: Bongology! is a particularly rhythm-led excursion, naturally.
