The Stripper

by David Rose

Sweet used to open their shows with this tune which continues straight into Hell Raiser. On some occasions it’s still used – like on the 50th anniversary show 2018 in Berlin. Look out !!!!

“The Stripper” is an instrumental composed by David Rose, recorded in 1958 and released four years later. It evinces a jazz influence with especially prominent trombone slides, and evokes the feel of music used to accompany striptease artists.
