VA - Viper Mad Blues - 25 Songs Of Dope And Depravity


This album introduces the listener to a very nice cross-section of 1920s and 1930s jazz and blues performed by 25 different artists, including Cab Calloway, Ella Fitzgerald, Fats Waller, Leadbelly, and Gene Krupa. Some of these pieces are just plain beautiful music, like Blue Drag. Others, as one would expect, are roll-on-the-floor funny, like Fats Waller's "The Reefer Song" or Frankie "Half-Pint" Jaxon's version of "Willie the Weeper."

You have a great cross section of topical songs from those relating to drugs and alcohol, such as the 'Jake Walk Blues', or songs about straight and gay issues.
