Third volume in the series that likes to introduce the tracks that will transfer avid listener into avid dancer, ‘Stroll-A-Rama: Jump and Bump’ is that record. In addition to a more than wholesome thirty tracks, this is also the compilation series that doesn’t necessarily play by the rules as it introduces two tracks from contemporary artists yet who operate within the original 50’s blueprint of music. Add to the roster artists from various continents such as British talent Marty Wilde and song ‘Jezebel’, and French singer Richard Anthony with a rendition of ‘The Wanderer’ (‘Le Vagabond’), then clearly this collection is content with providing a little something else. Such tactics work tremendously as there is variation from the traditional rhythm and blues end such as The Drifters ‘Honky Tonk’ and The Flares charming ‘Jump And Bump’, to guitar and brass duel of ‘Midnite Creep’ (Al Bruno), surf instrumental from German band Spo-Dee-O-Dee, and tight rockin’ numbers by the likes of Fention Robinson ‘Crazy Crazy Loving’. Jittery Jack’s ‘Something Wicked This Way Comes’ gives the game away only slightly when it comes to identifying the modern artist, but it’s a glorious stompin’ racket that provides much spice. It’s not only the rhythms (Bobby Doyle’s ‘Hot Seat’ is simply irresistible!) that entice because the majority of the lyrics grab the attention as well, with examples from ‘When Will I Be Loved’ (The Everly Brothers) to ‘What A Lonesome Life It’s Been’ (Skeets McDonald) that declares this album a true all-rounder.
