The album art for Numero Group's Royal Jesters reissue English Oldies
This year, June 23 will be an unofficial holiday for crate-diggers in San Antonio. Numero Group will reissue 28 tunes from the Royal Jesters, lifting the West Side icons out of the flea market and Discogs and placing them in a hi-fi package on the market.
The label just shared a quick teaser of what can be expected from English Oldies, the forthcoming double LP. Along with crisp re-masterings of San Anto soul, the vid teases out the real SA feel you can expect from the record: "A can of Tres Flores pomade, a tin of Tellez barbacoa, a cruise up General McMullen, Royal Jesters on the radio."
As a hometown bonus, Hi-Tones will host a release party on June 20, three days before English Oldies hits the shelves nation wide.
