Space Age Lounge Volume 1 – Ultra Swank Living

Here is the compilation that started everything. It was actually compiled a few months before I started this website back in September 2005 and I decided to keep the name Ultra Swank for the site.

Space Age Lounge – Volume 1 is the first compilation I have done in many years, so it might not be as solid as my later compilations. The theme for it is (as the title suggests) Ultra Swank living, set in the posh backdrops of the 1950s and 1960s with happy, swank and ultralicious underscores. There are 24 tracks in total and it clocks in at about one hour. Grab it while supplies last.
