Boomkat Product Review:
The third instalment of Sub Rosa's Fundamentals series, Shim Sham Shimmy looks to the genesis of modern popular music and the moment in history when electrifying and amplifying instruments changed the way artists played them. The compilation opens with the Champion Jack Dupree recording from which it draws its name: 'Shim Sham Shimmy' is the first of many blistering juke joint stomps to populate this great collection, which draws from the work of a wide range of artists, from the unknown to blues superstars like Albert Collins and skiffle legend Lonnie Johnson. Of course, in addition to flat out brilliant cuts like Ramblin' Hi Harris's 'I Haven't Got A Home', there are plenty of oddities too, like Slim Gaillard's 'F**k Off', which is entirely unnecessary. A right old mess of blues it may be, but Shim Sham Shimmy crams thirty excavated tracks onto a single, highly entertaining volume.
