Stylus writes: Not the most recognizable label for instrumental collectors, however it might appear surprising just how many superb examples are found on the 34 tracks here. Arthur Smith presents his original, late 40s version of 'Guitar Boogie' that MGM purchased in 1949/50.

There are another six examples of his style like the exciting 'Express Train Boogie' and his nod to Les Paul with the wonderful 'HI Lo Boogie'. At the end of the 50s another superb player was making albums for the label, the great Billy Mure. We have 7 examples of his fine style, five from albums including the Duane Eddy style of 'Shanandoah March' plus the single 'High Tide Boogie/ Lover's Guitar'. UK collectors may recall the latter track by our very own Fentones. Other guitar numbers are found from the Titans only LP for the label in 1961. They cover Bill Black's 'Movin'' as though it was written for them as well as The Duals 'Stick Shift' plus Arthur's Boogie hit updated to 'Guitar Boogie Shuffle@. The original 'Spinnin' Rock Boogie' from Mickey Baker was almost 20 years before it was reworked from Hank C. Burnette in Europe, what a stunning performance here. The original 'Ruby Duby Du' was covered for the UK by The Volcanos Plenty of film/TV themes such as 'Bonanza', the early Sci-fi 'Forbidden Planet' and 'The Haunting'. Versions of popular TV shows 'Batman' and 'The Saint' are here and Elmer Bernstein's classy 'Walk on the Wild Side'.

For sax lovers, check out Claude Cloud and Sam(The Man) Taylor and for Shadows fans checkout 'Sweet September' better known in the UK for Theme from the Boys.

Stylus will be releasing World Series Volume 35 in July.
