B. Bumble & the Stingers were one of producer Kim Fowley's cash-in studio projects in the early 1960s, built around the simple premise of rocking out various familiar classical pieces, and Fowley rode that horse as far as he could. There really was no B. Bumble and the Stingers themselves were actually crack Los Angeles session veterans Ernie Freeman (with his piano double-tracked so it sounded like a harpsichord), Rene Hall (electric guitar and six-string bass) and Earl Palmer (drums). The rock-the-classics approach actually yielded a couple of endearing and lasting hits, "Bumble Boogie," a concise, amped up version of Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee," and "Nut Rocker," which performed the same trick on Tchaikovsky's "The Nutcracker." Undeniably fun and joyous, at least for a track to two before it all starts to sound the same, the Stingers' legacy is best appreciated in small doses. This set has everything essential, although Ace's Nut Rocker and All the Classics has a few more tracks and is probably a slightly better buy. ~ Steve Leggett
