Various - Destination Summer Sea Cruise (CD)


1-CD with 24-page booklet, 33 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79:00 min

Dreaming of the summer cruise! A spectacular collection of summer songs from Bear Family Records®!
Extravagant compilation with R’n’R, Rhythm ’n’ Blues, Jazz, Pop and Instrumentals from 1955 to 1964!
A nostalgic cruise with 33 musical gems of bygone days on the theme of summer, sun and … the sea!
Included is the hit version of Frankie Ford’s classic Sea Cruise, the blockbuster Sail Along Silv’ry Moon by Billy Vaughn, and rockabilly smashes by Ricky Nelson, Floyd Brown, Marvin Rainwater and Jack Scott.
Italian flair is provided by Mina’s classic Tintarella Di Luna while Joey Dee twists at the railing – some recordings on CD for the first time!
Backgrounds are detailed in the 24-page full-color booklet with many rare pictures and reminiscences.

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.

Famous names and great unknowns

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, and with Hank Thompson and Speedy West, Western Swing fans don’t miss out either!

And of course there are again notes to each song on the CD, as well as many illustrations in the 24-page booklet!
