Rockin' N Boppn' with DJ Rudy


Double LP version. Stag-O-Lee is proud to continue the DJ-Set series with compilation by cult DJ Mr. Rudy. DJ Rudy blew the label away with his selection of tunes at the Goezot festival in Belgium in September 2021. And when he sent the label the list of festivals and weekenders he played at, they were even more impressed. So, Stag-O-Lee invited him to compile what is Volume 7 in the DJ Series on Stag-O-Lee. Features Red (Hot) Russell, Jay Headley, Lenny Capello and The Dots, Bernhard Byers, Freddy Cannon, Donnie Brookes, The Jumpers, Parker Cunningham, Harold Shutters and His Rocats, Frankie Lee Sims, Cousin Leroy, Lance Roberts, Ray Smith, Dale Wright, Tommy Roe, The Phantoms, The Cousins, Jimmy Reed, Larry Trider, Bruce Channel, Farris Wilder and His Band, Bob and The Rockabillies, Gene Kennedy, Ivor Fisher, Joe Melson, Chancellors, Tommy Danton and The Echoes, The Stompers, Bobby Peterson Quintet, and Dean and Jean.

"When I first heard DJ Rudy play, I could instantly feel the buzz on the dancefloor and see the excitement amongst the dancers. As the night progressed, being a DJ myself, I kept a keen eye on the clearly popular and friendly guy delivering the tunes --many of which (to my delight) I had never even heard before and the dance floor fillers kept coming, well put together and smoothly delivered. At last, I thought, a DJ who knows what the dancers want, isn't afraid to play a really wide mix of rockin' genres, (from rockabilly and r n' b to early sixties garage bands from Belgium!) and was not someone trying to impress with a small box of ultra-rare 45s -- he wasn't in the DJ booth to please himself, he was there to please the crowd and give them what they wanted. Since then, Rudy has played many sets for me at the Rockabilly Rave and is a regular DJ on the international rockin' scene. And the best part of my running into him all those years ago is that he is one of the nicest, warmest, passionate guys the scene has. Always willing to help, always with a huge smile and a kind word and always something positive to contribute. This album is a great taste of what Rudy has brought to the scene. It proves that rockin' tunes can be different and diverse, but if you pick the right ones it's always a rockin' party!" Jerry Chatabox (Oct 2021)
