JACK DIÉVAL ET SON SEPTUOR, Rock´n´Roll Ruby, 1956

Despite the last two rainy days, springtime is in full swing here in Berlin, so I´d like to celebrate with some swinging early french rock´n´roll.  No idea how this turned up in Prague, but that´s where I  bought this 45 a couple of years ago. Great dual vocals by Maria Velasco and Jean-Pierre Sasson, backed by swing jazz veteran Jaques Diéval!

    Probably the best “Rock and Ruby” I’ve ever heard..In a completely different universe from the other boring jazz I’ve heard from Dieval.Further proof that not only Sam Butera,Earl Bostic,and Joe Houston could blow like that.Another 45/78/EP I need to track down.

    Those Polydor sleeves are common.A lot of them turn up in the US,no doubt because of all the American service men in Germany at the time,but I have the only Polydor record store paper bag I have ever sen from the 50s,or early 60s. It has similar pictures on it.
