Koko Mojo Records presents thirty hoodlum rousing rhythm & blues rockers focusing on; drinking, drugs, relationships, sex, murder, and incarceration in “R&B Hell Raisers” Volume 02, Jail Bird. The raucous rhythms from “hip” to the jive mischief-making artists convey the problematic lifestyle from the decadent music years of 1934 and 1940, then onwards from 1947 through to 1961. Koko Mojo Records endeavours to use some lesser-known and for some people, perhaps more obscure titles, and our philosophy is to compile songs of quality, with every album, its “killer and no filler” ideology! You are listening to music from the past with a remastered sound that will shake the speakers. Dee Jay Mark Armstrong, Bühl, Germany
