The first ever compilation from the Alamo City’s scrappiest souleros. The Royal Jesters were the kings of San Antonio's cross-cultural teen scene in the 1960s, soundtracking lovelorn slow dances and sock hop twists alike. Clocking in at a whopping 28 songs, English Oldies compiles their singles for Abe Epstein’s Cobra and Jox labels, self released output on their own Jester and Clown imprints, and adds solo offerings from vocalists Joe Jama and Dimas Garza. This single CD or double LP showcases the best early doo-wop, R&B, and blazing Latin rock and soul from these Tex-Mex masterminds—a simmering melting pot of diverse regional flavors, best served hot. The group’s nearly 20-year career is captured in stunning period photos and in-depth liner notes, the perfect epitaph to the pompadoured and besuited sextet who once sang in a borrowed broken-hearted harmony.
