  • Description

    Isn't it wonderful to drink a hot, invigorating espresso or simply a cup of coffee outside a cafe in the warm spring sun or in summer, or inside in front of the fireplace in winter, and listen to beautiful nostalgic music to go with it? With this compilation, we provide the perfect sound that occasionally motivates you to dance, whether we meet in a coffee shop or in one of the nostalgic coffee houses. From cozy jazz and easy listening to muscle-twitching rock 'n' roll, there's always something extravagant about this compilation!

    Not just coffee house music!

    This CD compilation has it all. We present a wide range of music from 1940 to 1962. The oldest recording is the Java Jive by the Ink Spots, a soft vocal sound in a jazzy atmosphere and, last but not least, Java also stands for coffee! Country music in its traditional form is provided by Jerry Irby, Billy Briggs and Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant. Hot rock'n'roll and rockabilly numbers come from Bill Haley, Glen Glenn, Boots 'Randy' Randolph, Ken Jones' Rock 'n' Rollers and many more. There is also a lot to discover from pop to R&B such as famous classics by Peggy Lee (Black Coffee) or Danny Overbea's hit song Forty Cups Of Coffee in two versions that couldn't be more different, by Bill Haley & His Comets and the Les Brown Orchestra with Jo-Anne Greer on vocals. The CD comes with a full-color 16-page booklet with accompanying texts on the individual songs and artists, written by Marc Mittelacher, as well as many photos and illustrations!
