Product Description

Audio CD

Amazon.com

Grunge angst got old. We wanted to have fun. Big Bad Voodoo Daddy was there, ready with serviceable, pumped-up swing. Their music is straight, uptempo, dance floor jazz. There's nothing particularly original going on, but the sleazy horns and snappy arrangements get the job done. There's nothing campy or tongue-in-cheek either; the music just barrels ahead...like good rock & roll. --Steve Tignor

These guys are very talented, and the result is a great compilation of excellent music that is well worth buying.

I bought this cd as soon as it came out after falling in love with the band's music on the Swingers soundtrack. From the first time I put the cd on I have loved it. I've seen the band twice in concert and while the cd doesn't capture their live dynamic show it's definitely the coolest. I have other swing bands on cd but BBVD is the hippest and the heppest of them all. They are wonderful and don't have that underlying SKA sound like Cherry Poppin' Daddies does. They are swing to the maximum. I could just pop this cd in and put it on repeat. The best track for upbeat jivin is Jumpin' Jack it just makes you want to dance all over the place and to mellow things down a bit so you can recoup after the high energy swinging just listen to The Maddest Kind Of Love which speaks straight from the heart. For the true lounge sound Please Baby nails it on the head. BBVD never cease to entertain or please.

Wow! If you would like a change in pace from hiphop or rock and want to be transported back in time, check out these guys! This group creates a wonderful mix of New Orleans jazz, swing, and modern story lyrics. I only wish we could have some clubs open up in our downtowns with this sound. This group will make you move and you'll be "swinging" before you notice what's happening.

Having seen them in person at WARQ 93.5 FM's "Fall Out" Concert, I have to say that Big Bad Voodoo Daddy succeeds in resurrecting swing for this generation to enjoy. Not only does the band obviously have fun with songs such as "The Boogie Bumper," "Jumpin' Jack," and "Mambo Swing," but they are a complete band. The excellence of Scotty Morris' lyrics neither overpowers or is overpowered by his band. Paradoxically, though, the band has power. Glen "The Kid" is probably one of the best trumpeters I've heard. Ever. The rest of the band is just as good and jives just as well with each other. It's a shame their first two albums, "Big Bad Voodoo Daddy" (a different album from this one), and "Watchu' Want for Christmas" aren't commercially available, as I'm sure these two would sell. Simply, there are no bad tracks on the album, and it features only one cover, that being "Minnie the Moocher." Morris easily takes the energy from his last profession as a punk rocker and converts it into Swing, which was the punk rock of the 1930s and '40s, making Big Bad Voodoo Daddy one of the best bands out there. As they'd say in "Swingers," "They're money, baby!"

BBVD is not just the best of the new retro-swingers, but their overall approach to music is very much in the spirit of late 50's early 60's rock and roll. Heavy loud crashing with raucous and fun lyrics. You just can't help but MOVE to it! I really hope they don't get lost behind as retro-swing gets old; I think this album is one of the best rock albums of the 90's and I am eagerly looking forward to their next collaboration.

Don't take this CD out of the CD player ever!! This is a CD that you won't want to stop listening to. It deserves seven stars. Unlike Cherry Poppin' Daddies CD, all of the songs on BBVD's debut album are instant hits with my friends and me. There are almost no sexually provoking words in any songs compared to Cherry Poppin' Daddies. Don't get me wrong about CPD; they rock, but their older albums are better. This group of guys can really play swing. Scotty Morris wrote the songs very well in addition to singing them just great. He couldn't have done it better. I cannot wait for them to put out a new CD. Their music is something that will endure the years; maybe when the third wave of swing comes, the bands will say that they had been listening to BBVD and decided to bring it back. Opposite to most swing bands, BBVD started playing this music in the early '90's. They were doing their own thing and that is what gave them recognition. Other people liked what BBVD was doing and joined them in an effort to maked good music. This CD is an essential for all music lovers, swing and non-swing alike. Even if you are a slo mo music lover, these songs will make you change your mind fast. What are you waiting for reading my review, GO BUY IT RIGHT NOW !!!!!!

Just fabulous! I think this 'slightly hard-edged' Swing collection is HOT! You can't sit still and it's got some serious, high energy dance rhythms throughout! Definitely worth a listen if your at all even mildly interested in Swing! If your a Swing advocate this is a 'must have!'

Who needs Nirvana when you can groove and dance to the swingin' beats of Big Bad Voodoo Daddy? From the first track, The Boogie Bumper, you can't help but tap your foot or dance around in a swing frenzy! This stuff is pure FUN!
BBVD has a great band. The horns, along with the guitar, drums, and the rest is all top-notch. The singer's voice is very cool and soulful. This CD is exactly what swing and jazz is all about...having a good time!
King of Swing is a standout on this CD (however, they are all great). King of Swing starts out in a way that would be on a cartoon show such as Batman...then gets groovin into the main part of the song. The horns get MASSIVE tone...very impressive.
Buy this CD and have a good time! Get rid of the pop crap like Britney Spears and Creed and the rap and bring in Big Bad Voodoo Daddy! It's time to have some fun.
