First time on vinyl since 1998

Perennial Favorites is the 1998 sophomore album by swing revival band, Squirrel Nut Zippers, featuring the singles “Suits Are Picking Up the Bill,” and “Ghost of Stephen Foster.” This is the album’s first vinyl reissue since its original release.

Part of the reason they stand apart from the rest of the neo-swing crowd is that they don’t forget that there was a bit of menace in the days of hot jazz — it wasn’t a naive, swinging party, there was some genuine hedonism as well. Since the Zippers are revivalists, they can only hint at the subtext that informed swing and hot jazz, but that’s considerably more than their glitzy peers do. They also have a knack for a solid hook, and they deliver it all with panache and loose-limbed glee.
