Overview

The Rent Party Revellers in 1985 were an octet that included leader/cornetist Tex Wyndham, Ray Heitger on clarinet and soprano, trombonist Roger Munnell, and John Otto on alto and C-melody sax. They recorded eight songs that year (including "Shake That Thing," "Sitting on Top of the World," and "My Monday Date"). All of the music from that LP is reissued on this CD, along with six numbers from the 1996 version of the group, which had three changes in personnel including Rick Fay being on clarinet, soprano, and tenor. The basic ragged and good-time ensemble-oriented style is unchanged, as one can hear on "Here Comes My Ball and Chain" and "Delmar Drag." This is fun music, not flawlessly played but quite listenable and infectious.
