Shellac Stack No. 262 rolls ’em with boogie-woogie pianists Joe Turner and Pete Johnson. We venture to New Orleans with Conrad Janis and Armand Hug, to Spain with Amelia Rico, and to Japan with Dick Mine. We’ve got hot dance from Mike Markel and Fred Hall, and smooth vocals from a pair of Charlies: Charlie Palloy and Charlie Lawman. Plenty more too!

Shellac Stack No. 261 cleans out a few crates of “junk records” from the back of the garage and discovers some interesting things. Bob Eberly sings Elvis! Glenn Miller’s Artie Malvin tackles Buddy Holly! We’ve got hot western swing from the Plainsmen, sophisticated jazz from Illinois Jacquet and Dick Hyman, and rockabilly from George Jones. Plenty more too. It’s an unusual “Shellac Stack” full of twists and turns. Join us! And thanks for supporting the “Shellac Stack” on Patreon: patreon.com/shellacstack
