Seems you can’t listen to music today without hearing some reference or other to sex, drugs and crime. Well, guess what kids, it ain’t nothing new! Join the Odyssey for an hour of vintage jazz, blues and folk brought to you by a motley crew of junkers, jivers, vipers, dope-fiends, hookers, boozers and crap-shooting sinners.
Some of these tracks are extremely old – in fact, the most recent track on here is 59 years old, so you’ll have to excuse the sound quality as the recordings were made from dusty old 78s…Personally, I think it adds to the charm.
