ALBUM`````BORN BAD IN JUNGLE FEVER
GENRE``````PROTO-ROCK, EARLY ROCKABILLY, ROCK & ROLL, PROTO-PUNK, PSYCHOBILLY
This is a selection/mixed bag of 12 volumes of the brilliant "Born Bad" compilations, Monkey Madness compilation and Jungle Fever discs.
Some of these artists you may know (Wanda Jackson, The Groupies etc.) but some are true unknown gems of the past age. I was thrilled to find out that many of these songs are included on the fabulous "Songs The Cramps Thaught Us" compilations which are dealing with the birth of psychobilly music that made The Cramps sound so damn good.
Jungle Fever and Monkey Madness songs are added just to spice the mix up estheticaly and give it a bit of needed innocence and ridicule since most of these songs are bizzare underground failures that were strangely influental on many music movements in America in those days.
