Destination Lust – The World Of Love, Sex and Violence

Bear Family Records have released a brand new compilation themed around love and eroticism. Destination Lust: The World of Love, Sex and Violence features the naughty, the erotic and the provocative.

This selection is certainly tantalizing, in the shape of such well-known femme fatale types as Jayne Mansfield with the opening track. There are seductive numbers galore, such as ‘That Makes It’, the breathless ‘Teach Me Tiger’ and the downright naughty ‘Little Girl’.

Track two is an early example on the disc of the quality of musicianship that is prevalent in this collection. Many of the tracks fit perfectly into either the blues, rock-and-roll or jazz genres, in these terms. There are a few more mainstream offerings which would fit on any rock-and-roll or jazz compilation, such as The Clovers’ rendition of ‘Love Potion No 9′ and The Revels’ ‘Intoxica’.

No lust themed album would be complete without David Rose’s well-known number ‘The Stripper’. Considering her titillating reputation, Mansfield undoubtedly deserves the accolade of both opening and closing this compilation. She ends on a steamy note, with ‘Let’s Do It’ and a spoken word Outro.

Collectors familiar with the catalogue of Bear Family Records will be familiar with the quality of their accompanying booklets. This one boasts 24 pages of in-depth information on tracks and artists. It is also packed with suitably evocative imagery.

Definitely one for the adult audience due to the openly suggestive nature of both the music and visual material, this is nevertheless a very interesting compilation.
