Patti Anne With The Flames – Shtiggy Boom (1955)

In the mid 1980s, the NME released a series of “paid for” cassettes that showcased a fantastic range of music from blues to jazz to rock’n’roll to indie, etc.

In the days before t’internet and before we lived in a world where any track that has ever been recorded is only the click of a mouse away, this series of cassettes was a window into another world. Of tracks long gone and potentially forgotten. Only to be retrieved, if at all, by painstaking hours in  the secondhand record shops that then filled the country and which I spent many of my waking hours in.

One of my favourite cassettes was the “Little Imp” compilation, showcasing tracks from the Aladdin and Imperial record labels of the 1950s and 1960s.

One of the all time great compilations – from it, I’ve already previously posted the staggering “I Ain’t Drunk” by Jimmy Liggins (here); “Messy Bessy” by Louis Jordan (here), “One Scotch, One Bourbon, One Beer” by Amos Milburn (here) and the peerless “Who Drank My Beer While I Was in the Rear” by Dave Bartholomew (here).

Joining this pantheon of greats is Patti Anne and the Flames’ “Shtiggy Boom” – another jump blues classic. Killer guitar, bass, piano and vocals ….
