About the newest Record: Baptist Town
Recorded at Sun Studio in Memphis, “Baptist Town” is steeped in the rich history of the South and the folklore that is so important to American culture. The catalyst for the record is the small neighborhood outside Greenwood Mississippi where legendary blues guitarist Robert Johnson was murdered in 1938. The track “Somebody Been Runnin’” references the final chapter of Johnson’s “deal with the devil” made at the crossroads, and some say fulfilled in the tiny community of Baptist Town the night he died.
The record also focuses on the poverty and racism of the past, and still existing in the Deep South today. Baptist Town remains mostly as it did in Johnson’s time and is a stark contrast to the surrounding city of Greenwood Mississippi. The dichotomy between love and hate, rich and poor, sin and salvation, black and white, are apparent throughout the record, and reflect many of society’s struggles that continue to haunt us all.
Featuring guest artists:
John Mayer – Lap steel and electric guitar on “Roadside Shrine”
Robert Cray – Electric lead guitar on “Baptist Town”

There is nothing old fashioned about the death-defying stunts of bassist Tommy Collins, the pounding drum beats of Michael Robinson, or the sizzling horns played by Bruce Legge.

– Rhythm Torpedoes– Marburg Germany
Wild Records artist- The “Rhythm Torpedoes” from the Greater Marburg / Lahn area are a chapel dedicated to the music of the 50s and its modern variations. Founded in 2011 out of a booze mood, the current cast has been found after several changes to the instruments. Since the voice of the singer is often reminiscent of the old master of rockabilly and country music, Mr. Johnny Cash, there are always some pieces from his pen in the program. In addition to the dynamic own compositions, the rest of the program is composed of well-known but less frequently played pieces by various interpreters from 1955 to the present day. Live is played unchecked and at full steam and so hit the Rhythm Torpedoes in the black, in this case in the ear canal and in the dance-mad feet of the audience.

– Whiskey Kiss – Phoenix AZ USA
Whiskey Kiss is all grown up. What started as a sweet, rockabilly-influenced act has morphed into a straight-up roots rock band with vintage flair and edgy kicks. The result is a classic backbone driven in a modern direction: Retro.Revamped.
Their new record is exactly that: the retro groove is there, but they spice it up with aggressive guitars, kinetic energy, and high powered vocals that pack a punch. The best things about this band is their versatility. Each track on the album brings something new. From “Keep it to Myself”, the powerful guitar-driven single with the deceptively pure lyrics, to “Vixen” the sexy, Cramps-influenced surf number, to “All You Need” a jumping, rockabilly tune with sprinkled swing, every song on this album celebrates the sounds of a bygone era, but makes it accessible to the modern listener.
