"The Room Of Cool" and beyond!

This 1954 creation is saturated in jazzy unconcerned nonchalance and class. A cult recording, that uplifts any room with its persuasive dance rhythms.

An extremely elusive 45, this one does not look pretty, but who can be fussy when trying to secure this glorious mood-changer as a 7" 45. Multiple surface marks but plays at a grade way above its battle-weary looks. With every finger-snapping note coming through loud and clear, with that amazing saxophone solo sending shivers and tremors through your already gyrating insides. Exciting piano notes whisk you off on a journey to a far off desert-oasis "rave" with dusky veiled bare-bellied maiden shake their thing.

Some records transcend time, although this radical Percy Mayfield composition was cut nearly 70 years ago, its affect today is exactly the same as it was back then. Triggering an involuntary finger-clicking, foot tapping prelude to full blown dance. A superior "Tittyshaker" that burrows deep under your skin...and stays there. Listen and be prepared to be swept away by the shifting sands of R&B / Jazz.

Just mesmeric from start to finish, no wonder this 7" enjoys such a huge underground appreciation!

Do not pass by... we don't expect to find another copy
