Rosa Linda: Will Success Spoil Rock-Maninoff?

Former child prodigy Rosa Linda gives popular classics a boogie-woogie blood transfusion. After all, it’s 1956 and as it says on the back of the LP, “she felt the urge to develop her present style which turned out to be a very lucrative field”, i.e. “it was great doing a guest shot with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Igor Stravinsky, but sadly there’s more money in novelty records”. Just like “Nut Rocker” by B. Bumble and the Stingers, this is a stylistic fusion that won’t hurt you with superfast particles but is guaranteed to make you glow in the dark.
