Aladdin Records was one of the earliest indie labels in Los Angeles to specialise in blues, R&B, rock & roll, hillbilly and other non-mainstream musical genres, originally formed in 1945 as Philo Records, the 30 tracks on this unique set span 1946-1960, and feature an eclectic range of both well-known and obscure performers.

Many of the more rocking titles herein became popular in Europe during the 1970s rockabilly revival.

Featured artists include celebrated names like Velma Nelson, Peppermint Harris, Harold Burrage, Chuck Higgins, Lowell Fulson, Dolores Gibson, Gene & Eunice, Marvin & Johnny and Sugar & Pee Wee (Sugar, being Sugar Pie De Santo), while Patti Anne, The Spence Sisters, Arthur 'Fatso' Theus, The Jivers, Big T Tyler and Charles Sims occupy the opposite end of the 'fame' spectrum.

There are plenty of obscure collectors' rarities herein, making this a potential cult collection.
