Stag-O-Lee present the third volume in a 10" series called Journey To The Centre Of The Song, celebrating one song at a time, and it's many guises and interpretations. After Volume One, Taboo (STAGO 069LP, 2015), and Volume Two, Fever (STAGO 087LP, 2016), follows Volume Three, Summertime. From the liner notes: "Written by George Gershwin and his brother Ira for their opera Porgy & Bess in 1934, this song has become part of the American Songbook and been covered in many styles and genres. From Rodney And The Blazers' upbeat surf'strumental shaker to the sweet and soulful Sam Cooke, from the Rock`n´Roll stroller by Rick Nelson that inspired Deep Purple's 'Black Night', to the Latin-infused intro by Edmundo Ross." Also features: Troy Walker, Mack IV, Gatemouth Brown, Ronny Hawkins, Jimmy Randolph, Gene Vincent, Tommy Navarro And The Sundialers, and Marty Robbins.
