With a slogan like "Songs of Lust and Depravity" in the title, this aggressively illustrated compilation might be expected to contain verifiable instances of unmitigated smuttiness, like Lucille Bogan's outrageously explicit "Shave `Em Dry" or Tampa Red and Half-Pint Jaxon's gloriously lewd version of the "How Long, How Long Blues," but it doesn't. While plenty of vintage music collections have been assembled using the no-holds-barred "Copulatin' Blues" formula, Sexcapades falls more within the category of naughtiness, burlesque, and the suggestive double entendre. Like their predecessors at Stash records and similarly adventurous labels, the producers of this randy little anthology appear to have been banking on the prurient interest of the public at large. What distinguishes this release is the interwoven presence of classic blues, hokum, and R&B singers with bawdy "red hot mamas" and even glamour girl movie stars like Jayne Mansfield. This means that luscious offerings from Blue Lu Barker, Dinah Washington, and Clara Smith are interspersed with showier displays by old-school bad girls Marlene Dietrich, Sophie Tucker, and Mae West. Maybe the deliberate intention here was to contrast the personalities of Ruth Wallis and Little Esther, or Georgia White and Gypsy Rose Lee. Even with its strongly implied invitation to engage in physical lovemaking, Alberta Hunter's "You Can't Tell the Difference After Dark" is more about skin pigmentation than anything else, although her sultry-tough contralto delivery on this record compares interestingly with that of Mae West. The weirdest incursion is by a fully loaded Marilyn Monroe (accompanied by pianist Hank Jones), singing "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to John F. Kennedy, whose voice is also heard on this cheeky compendium of songs about temptation and indulgence. ~ arwulf arwulf
