About this release

Over the past 8 years or so from Lands End to John O’Groats Burlesque nights have been cropping up with increasing regularity. One-off nights have become packed monthly events, whilst Burlesque dance classes have swelled to breaking point the length and breadth. The fun isn’t just limited to the UK though and a quick Google search reveals that Burlesque entertainment is thriving right across the globe. Whilst it’s fair to say that Dita Von Teese is currently Burlesque’s most public face, even recently being interviewed on Al Murray’s Pub Landlord Saturday night show, there have been many incredibly colourful characters from its start way back in the 1840s. Musically speaking current Burlesque nights tend to draw from the 1940’s onwards, so think sexy, classic and often highly collectible big band Swing, sleazy Jazz, funky Blues, and rare Rockabilly and you’re getting close.

The album is guaranteed to include Bullmoose Jackson’s – My Big 10 Inch (Record), Li’l Millet and His Creoles – Rich Woman (recently covered by Robert Plant and Allison Krauss), The Monkey by Dave Bartholomew (as borrowed by Marc Bolan for Get It On), Joe Clay’s rockabilly classic Sixteen Chicks and David Rose’ highly sought after version of The Stripper.
