THE BIG TOWN PLAYBOYS - Live & Kicking. Britain's premier Jump Blues combo's first album, "Playboy Boogie", from 1985. In 2015 Secret Records reissued the concert on CD as "Hole In My Pocket". Tonight we listen to their swinging set in its entirety.

Released in 2015, the Big Town Playboys recording "Hole In My Pocket" featured the Jump Blues combo live in Camden Town London. Recorded in 1985 in the Dublin Castle club, this swinging set proves that real Rhythm & Blues still exists.

These guys backed Jeff Beck for an album? There's a good concert on Youtube.

The "Crazy Legs" album is so different from anything Jeff Beck's done. It's straight up rockabilly, all covers, it's a tribute to Gene Vincent & His Blue Caps, or more specifically Gene Vincent's guitarist, Cliff Gallup. I will play it one day....I promise: cross my heart & hope to die.
