Mad Daddy's Maddest Spins - Various Artists

Mad Daddy's Maddest Spins
29 selections from the late ‘50s playlists of legendary shock n roll DJ Mad Daddy. Championed by The Cramps, Mad Daddy’s fast talkin’ and superb track selection made him a truly influential character

‘Rotatin’, motatin’ and stimulatin’ rockin’ and reelin’ and hangin’ from the ceiling - MAD DADDY’S MADDEST SPINS – Vintage late ‘50s rock and swing’ features classic cuts from his playlists at WJW in Akron, Ohio

Includes blistering R’n’R, madcap sax-drenched raunch and some of the strangest tunes ever.

All tracks re-mastered from the original sound sources with sleevenotes by MOJO magazine’s Dave Henderson.


"Far more interesting than Mad Daddy’s campy style is the music that he played, and that’s why this album, derived from playlists of two Mad Daddy radio shows – one from 1957 and another from 1958 – can exist over five decades after the fact.”
