Great album but your "reveiw" is not acurrate.

First, this is NOT their debut album, Kings Of Gangster Bop is. Second, your review and genre classification are totally off. Please correct.


Swing music

Great music one of their best albums.

Hollow Voice

Misguided reviewers, please read.

These guys are great. They combine Jazz, blues, and even a little bit of rock influences the drums. Great Big Band music. Really good to see this type of music is still around!

About Royal Crown Revue

Retro-swingers the Royal Crown Revue comprised vocalist Eddie Nichols, guitarist James Achor, bassist Veikko Lepisto, tenor saxophonist Mando Dorame, baritone saxophonist Bill Ungerman, trumpeter Scott Steen and drummer Daniel Glass. Debuting in 1991 with the LP Kings of Gangster Bop, the group was almost the first to catch the wave of swing-era nostalgia that crested during the latter half of the decade; with 1995's Mugzy's Move, Royal Crown Revue made their major label debut, signing to Warner Brothers. 1997's live album Caught in the Act generated the cult hit "Barflies at the Beach." The following year's The Contender featured the single "Zip Gun Bop (Reloaded)." Walk On Fire, which appeared in 1999, featured the Revue's tightest presentation with vintage instruments including original "44" ribbon microphones. Tours of Japan and Australia were successful and the Royal Crown Revue celebrated by issuing the live effort Passport: Live In Australia in 2001. ~ Jason Ankeny
