Let’s Throw A Pajama Party Vol.3

Various Artists


This is the series that has a habit of throwing together some real hard rockin’ delights with equally exciting results from numerous teenage-light rock ‘n’ roll combined with plenty of teen-pop, doo-wop and rhythm and blues. ‘Let’s Throw A Pajama Party Vol.3’ makes no exception from this formula and its previous two volumes in what is proving an excellent series. The Rockin Rebels ‘Wild Weekend’ kickstarts this party with a tough instrumental and therefore living up to both titles. From there, the mood swings between teen-pop numbers ‘Your Love Is A Good Love’ via smooth vocals of Jimmy Edwards, to upping the tempo ever so slightly of ‘Zig Zag’ (Bobby Comstock), and then notching it up further during considerably wilder ‘Boppin’ Bobby’ from Jean King Victor. Well-known hits from the likes of Bobby Darin and ‘Dream Lover’ add further quality as do rhythm and blues/rock ‘n’ roll numbers from Larry Williams ‘Slow Down’ and Screamin Jay Hawkins ‘Take Me Back To My Boots And Saddle’, before diverting down another alley and coming up with much drama from the vocals of Ray Peterson (‘Tell Laura I Love Her’), to The Valentines ‘The Woo Woo Train’ where the saxophone is fuelling this particular train. RED HOT! With homework done and the recipient, Atomicat, receiving an A+ for their efforts regarding this latest compilation where the listener and, more significantly, partygoer will experience a breadth of tracks that all good compilation albums should contain, especially if they want to keep the party rockin’, ‘Let’s Throw A Pajama Party Vol.3’ will have no such problems once the needle drops on this record because it fulfils all such expectations.
