• Grady MARTIN AND THE SLEW FOOT FIVE - There'll Be A Hot Time Tonight

A great experience awaits the listener when he plays a Grady Martin and his Slew Foot Five recording. Don't let the familiar nick-name tempt you to under-rate the perfectionist quality of their music for Martin and his boys have demonstrated again and again on countless records, on radio and TV, their power to stir those inarticulate sensibilities in the lowliest among us where our deepest life lies slumbering until some power greater than ourselves summons it to full flower and vigour.

For this CD set we have taken three original albums the first of which is 'Hot Time Tonight' which includes old - time favourites such as 'Let Me Call You Sweetheart', 'Elmer's Tune', 'Japanese Sandman', and the eternal 'St. Louis Blues'. The Second album 'Big City Lights' is made up entirely of instrumentals - all originally big Country and Western songs including 'Tennessee Waltz', 'Heartaches By The Number', 'He'll Have To Go' and 'You Are My Sunshine' The last album featured is 'Swingin' Down The River' which features some of the greatest river - inspired songs such as 'Lazy River', 'Swanee River', 'Ol' Man River', 'Beautiful Ohio' and 'Colonel Bogey March' which was featured in the motion picture 'The Bridge On The River Kwai'.

Grady's styling reinvigorates every song whether it's been five minutes of fifty years since the listener has heard it. That's why a Grady Martin fan is a fan for life.
