    Gaz's Rockin Blues - 40th Anniversary Special

      Stag-O-Lee is proud to continue the DJ-Set Series with a compilation by cult DJ and master of few compilations Gaz Mayall. As a tasty contribution to your vinyl LP collection, this double album explores four avenues that reflect aspects of Gaz's Rockin' Blues club. As Gaz “Founded July 3rd 1980, now celebrating 40 years of fun and dancing at London's Number One Blues dance. Originally at Gossips in the basement of 69 Dean Street, with it's entrance on Meard St., the cobbled alley that links it with Wardour Street in the heart of Soho, traditionally the hub of clubland and red light district in London's West End. After djing & presenting bands there for over 14 years I moved the regular Thursday club night round the corner to St. Moritz,159 Wardour Street. Another great Soho basement dive with a huge history.

      The choice of music in this particular selection contains two fundamental styles of Rhythm and Blues oriented boogie music that influenced the world. The post war era of black dance music was driven by R&B that was the inspiration for the Rock`n´Roll of the 1950's. Here you have a hard core Slice of Black Rock & Roll, a side of rockin' early 50's R&B, it's precursor on one platter. On the next disc you'll hear a bunch of moving, exciting and at times frenzied 50’s Gospel. The idiom where most R&B and black Rock`n´Roll and Soul stars learned their art and cut their teeth. I was asked for this project to choose a bunch of Jamaican tunes to illustrate the role Jamaica's music has played in influencing the style and direction of Gaz's Rockin' Blues.

      These tracks are drawn from the very earliest days, at the inception of Ska in the late 50’s when JA artists, having fell in love with US R&B, created their own take on it. I hope you enjoy this album for many years to come. Treasure it as I and all at Gaz’s Rockin Blues have treasured these tracks. 40 years and still going strong!” Gaz Mayall

        The Rockinitis series showcases electric guitar blues from the mid-fifties to the early sixties. Unfettered pleasure in the form of Black dance music. Third time's the charm as two heavy-hitters join the fray.

        Wexford, Ireland’s Bill Kealy has been packing dancefloors for 30 years. He was sucked deep into the Rhythm & Blues vortex after following the trail back from the music of his youth; The Kinks, The Animals and the like. A truly international DJ, hear his sets at The Federal Rhythm & Blues Club in Crewe, For Dancers Only in Dublin, or as a regular guest DJ at top R&B clubs almost everywhere.

        Steve Longworth spent his teenage years dancing to Soul at Wigan Casino. He was then drawn towards the R&B and Popcorn sound. Since the early 2000s he’s been running nights all across England’s North - Soulful Shack, Down In The Basement and The Ad-Lib, to name a few. He’s played gritty Blues 45s at clubs from Barcelona to Melbourne and now regularly spins at Sheffield’s mighty Room At The Top.

        Buzzsaw Joint Cuts 5 & 6

          Buzzsaw Joint was born of a club offering Londoners the chance to revel in the sounds of good ol’ trashy rock’n’roll in all its vintage vinyl forms. Club top-cat, Fritz, then took the primitive Buzzsaw sounds online with a series of savage Mixcloud mixes created by record fiends from all over the globe. Now, the high-octane energy of Buzzsaw Joint has manifested into the physical form with a run of compilations on Stag-O-Lee. Get your ears around the wild’n’weird sounds of the extraordinary and inimitable Buzzsaw Joint! mixcloud.com/BuzzsawJoint.

                Hells Bells

                  Stag-O-Lee compilation of weird stuff for 'the 5th season'. It would have been way too easy concentrating on titles with 'Ghost', 'Spook' or 'Devil' so they went ahead doing something more subtle and special, spanning the decades from the 1920s through the 1940s in a very wild manner. Every track is solid sending stuff for sophisticated Lindy Hop, Shag or Balboa-dancing.

                  Little Victor

                  Deluxe Lo-Fi

                    Multiple award-winner guitarists, harp player, songwriter, singer and producer Little Victor Mac - a.k.a. The Beale Street Blues Bopper- is back after eight years with his ground-breaking new album Deluxe Lo-Fi. The record -also produced by Victor- features Kim Wilson of The Fabulous Thunderbirds (Muddy Waters, Eric Clapton, Bonnie Raitt,), Steve Lucky (Blues Persuaders, Johnny Copeland, Spin Doctors, Blues Travellers... ), Carl Sonny Leyland (Chuck Berry, James Cotton, Louisiana Red, Lowell Fulson... ), Brent Harding (Social Distortion) and other great musicians.

                    Little Victor believes Lo-Fi is the new Hi-Fi and he explores all types of lo-fi sounds -from "slightly" lo-fi to "ultra" lo-fi and It caters to a wide range of styles from 50’s rockin’ blues to raw late 50’s/early 60’s R&B and soul, and from “pre-war” to blues “boppers.” Lot of danceable numbers on this album. Victor even goes back to his rock and roll roots with a fun Little Richard type of song. He tried to make this new opus sound like a collection of vintage scratchy obscure 45s and 78s. Little Victor claims this is the best album he ever done since the “Back To The Black Bayou” and features some of the best songs he ever wrote and also some of his best performances as a vocalist and guitarist.
