A nostalgic cruise invites you to dream. We remember old movies, the departure of the great ocean liners with small orchestra on the quay. In contrast to today's mass tourism, a cruise back then was still a genuine adventure. With this compilation we want to musically remember past times on the oceans of this world and at the same time provide momentum for your next summer party.
Besides great stars, there are many excellent 'no-names' of rock and pop history to (re)discover. Billy Vaughn, Mina, Joey Dee, Harry James and Ricky Nelson everyone knows; but what about The Techniques, The Shells or Helene Dixon? It's a similar story with the songs: Frankie Ford's Sea Cruise is a classic, but who knows the rare cover by The Keil Isles? There's also an instrumental version of the classic Beyond The Sea by Earl Grant, plus surf rarities by Billy Mure, Rickey Leigh and The Twins, and The Polaras. Doo wop and ballads by The Shells, The Ivies and Marlon 'Madman' Mitchell round out the soundtrack. Mina comes to us with an Italian twist, while Don Drummond brings Jamaican flair. Rockabilly cats like Jack Scott, Marvin Rainwater and many others really make their mark!
