records – cosmic, curious and cracked

Staying with Resonance FM, we eyed the kookily named ‘records cosmic, curious and cracked’- a truly tasty mixed bag of vintage groove mostly from the shellac age all plucked, polished and played by host Jack Thorington, who provides a dandy trawl through the back waters of his no doubt extensive record collection, this latest edition – 13/3.18’s therein appearing to be a stomp themed fest replete and awash with all manner of hillbilly mountain jigs, smoking bossa nova, Irish flings and the Twist. Amid the playlist a seasoning of selections from Joey Dee and Starliters, Ry Cooder and a killer mooching thing by King Oliver and his Dixie Syncopators going by the name ‘Slowboat Shuffle’ – aa little thing penned by Duke Ellington which you can find on an excellent compilation called ‘Black Chicago’ which should you get the chance to track down we suggest you immediately fast forward and seek out ‘Black Snake Blues’ – very Calloway.
