Here we are again, the third volume in the compilation series of Keb Darge and Little Edith’s “Legendary Wild Rockers”. Keb Darge says his plan with this series is “to outstrip my ‘Legendary Deep Funk’ comps.” He thinks “the funk and soul thing seems much too serious nowadays. Whereas rockin’ tunes are all about fun. Not to detract from the quality of music on these tunes, but you can clearly here the fun they had recording them.”
The majority of the tunes on Volume 2 were ultra-rare rockabilly classics. This time Keb & Edith have gone for pure fun with a few deeper sounding rarities thrown in to add a hint of diversity. Keb said: “DJing is also much more fun for us now as this music generates happiness in the crowd too. The old northern soul days of “drowning in a sea of my own despair” have been replaced with “having a ball.”
“That seems the condition we left the UK in too, with lots of younger club goers having a ball to the likes of Johnny Burnette or Charlie Feathers. Japan is already in the grip of rockabilly fever, but we have our work cut out in other countries over here in South East Asia.”
We are sure they’ll be rockin’ all around the globe!
