Stomp and Shake is a cut from the “Zulu” Soundrtrack LP. During the show, we weren’t clear on what the movie depicted. The movie dramatizes the Zulu War, which was a war in Africa between the British Empire and the African Kingdom of Zululand. While the Zulus won the initial battle of the War, eventually the British Empire prevailed and vanquished the Zulus, putting an end to the Kingdom of Zululand.
We also discussed whether the Dave Stewart who played organ on Uriel’s song “Leg” from their album Urzachel is the Dave Stewart that was in Eurythmics. Despite our discussion during the show, it is not.
The Discography of American Historical Recordings website states that “The Colored Major” by Vess L. Ossman was recorded on May 16, 1901.
