Various Artists - The Flamingo Club: London's Original All-Nighter
Brand new. Sealed album.
Limited vinyl LP pressing. Jeff Kruger's Fabulous Flamingo originally operated from the basement of the Mapleton Restaurant in Coventry Street, London and was known for it's sophisticated jazz suppers. In April 1957, the club moved to Wardour Street where it soon became famous, some might say 'infamous' for it's weekend 'All-Nighters' staying open until 6am every Friday and Saturday night. In 1959 Kruger hired brothers Rik and Johnny Gunnell to manage the 'Mingo' and develop the 'All-Night' scene introducing the signature sound of jazz-tinged rhythm and blues and proto-soul!
