About Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies
Zoot Suit Riot: The Swingin’ Hits of the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies is a compilation album by the American band the Cherry Poppin’ Daddies, released on March 18, 1997 by Space Age Bachelor Pad Records. The album is a collection of swing and jazz-influenced songs from the band’s first three studio albums, along with four bonus tracks recorded especially for this compilation.
Following the success of the 1996 film Swingers, which prominently showcased the Los Angeles swing revival movement, public attention started turning towards swing music, which had been slowly emerging within the west coast alternative underground.
Lead singer Steve Perry explained the genesis of the compilation as, “We didn’t want to be a “swing band”. What happened was that our manager said, “Everybody comes up and they ask me which CD has the most swing on it,” – that’s what we mostly played live – “and I don’t know what the fuck to tell them because two of the CDs have the same amount and the other has less. So it’s between these, and I don’t know what to do. I swear to God, if you put all of those swing songs on one record, people would just shit. They would really want that, because how many people have all three Cherry Poppin’ Daddies records?” “Well, none.” “Well, yeah. There you go.” And I went, “I don’t think that a band from Eugene with three records could put a greatest hits record out.” “Then record some new songs.” We had talked about it for a while, and we decided to do it. And it was cheap. So we did it”
