RAY COLLINS' HOT-CLUB are certainly one of the hottest 1950's style jump-blues bands ever to come out of Europe. In fact, once you listen to these recordings, you'd probably agree that they are amongst the best in the world today. And as close to a perfect '50s sound as you could get.
This is a truly outstanding collection of high-quality rhythm and blues. Good-time music with a SOLID beat. It's extremely rare that a new band comes up with a really exciting sound that genuinely captures the spirit of the classic recordings of the legendary 1950s artists, but here you'll hear shades of Tiny Bradshaw, Joe Houston, Big Jay McNeely, Joe Liggins, Johnny 'Guitar' Watson, Wynonie Harris and Ike Turner's King of Rhythm.
RAY COLLINS' HOT-CLUB arrangements, production and mastering are testimony to the meticulous attention to detail that has gone into making these incredible new recordings. These are modern day classics that are just crying out for airplay. If you get a chance to see RAY COLLINS' HOT-CLUB play live you'll enjoy a show and enjoy a sound that is straight out of 1951. An unbelievable journey back to the birth of rock'n'roll. High energy, exuberant and glamorous.
