Another favorite of the Cramps. Paul Chaplain is one of those cats that sort of just popped in and out of the recording industry to leave us with that one killer record. Released in 1960, this raving version of an old folk song, is about as wild as a record ever got. The Emeralds were a band that were as Country as a band could get. They even had fiddles. I couldn't tell you where the fiddles went on this monster though. It is all wild swinging guitars and a whooping and hollering vocals on this great little disc. Unfortunately, it proved too wild for America at the time and never made it beyond the lower regions of the Billboard Top 100. Chappy, as people called Paul, released one more 45, Swinging in the Rockies. The fire burned short and fast.
The Upper Shelves are hottest DJ collective of the Netherlands. Or at least as hot as the wax they are spinning. Guaranteed all killer, no filler! In a country with more DJs than civil servants that's saying something!
The Upper Shelves come with one promise, we’ll burn up your dance floor with the power of the 45! Though we have been known to sneak in a vinyl LP once in a great while.
Garage, Soul, R&B and Rock & Roll is our degree, with the occasional curve ball thrown in for good measure. We’ll bring you all the great hits, including the ones you forgot.
This Blog will give you an impression of our greatness, or should I say the mind blowing power of the 45. To be honest, we just drop the needle on them.
This blog is intended primarily for promotional use. We feel this music deserves to be spread around and we encourage everybody visiting to go out and buy it. Preferably on 45, but we do not look down on the convenience of getting a CD. If in any way you feel we are violating your copy right by our posts, let us know, we’ll glad to oblige by taking the post in question down.
