The covers are gems from the catalogues of Ike Turner, Freddie King and country singer Johnny Rivers, among others.
Take a big bucket of unpolished Mississippi juke joint boogie and blend it with another bucket of laid back down home blues. Add a teacup of swamp pop, a tablespoon of hillbilly and a pound of profane, ecstatic gospel and you´ll have the Kokomo Kings. This is rock´n´roll before rock´n´roll was born. Nothing but primitive, groovy Saturday-night music made for dancing.

Del Shannon is known as the Runaway hitmaker of 1961, with a string of hits to follow in the early ’60s. One story that may not be as well known is that he was the first American artist to record and release a Lennon/McCartney composition in From Me To You in the summer of 1963. Shannon’s version charted higher than The Beatles’ original on the U.S. charts that summer, a song that Shannon had produced himself! Del’s first attempt producing a session tasted sweet and he wanted to explore that opportunity more in depth. Del Shannon cut ties briefly with his managers in the latter half of ’63 and wrote, recorded, produced, and released his own records for a stint on his own label, albeit short-lived, BER-LEE RECORDS.read more
