Format: Audio CD
For whatever reason I never quite warmed to the late Billy Lee Riley as much as I did to the other "lower tier" rockabilly wannabes like Sonny Burgess, Warren Smith and Carl Mann. I thought perhaps I should revisit him having generated reviews on the other guys but I haven't gone as far as forking out hard cash and am relying purely on the Amazon Previews. First, though to his position in the Sun pecking order which I hope the mini-essay in the next para does something to address.

To say the Sun label attracted and in most cases retained, at least for the key period in the growth of rockabilly, a high level of rock'n'roll talent is an understatement of the highest order. The talent at Sun in its heyday was truly staggering. If I can draw an analogy to the way UK football is organised and put the artists who spent time there into divisions then in the Premier division would be Elvis, Jerry Lee and Johnny Cash. undoubted superstars all. OK, Sam did let Elvis go but he used to argue that this gave him funding to develop other artists. Both Jerry and Johnny produced much of their quality material whilst at Sun - Cash's output for the label is still under appreciated. Moving down to the Championship we would see Carl Perkins, to many people the epitome of rockabilly, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison. Both of the latter pairing were to go on to much greater fame with subsequent labels and, arguably, should be promoted to superstar rating over their entire careers. However Rich's Sun output shouldn't be ignored. In my view, "Who will the next fool be" and "Lonely Weekends" have had lasting appeal and, to me, match anything he was to go on to record.

My gal is red hot, ... 17 Jun. 2004
By Martin 13 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
One of the wildest rockabilly performers! He started at Sun and contributed as a sideman to many a classic Sun session. He played harmonica, guitar, bass and drums. His band the Little Green Men (Roland Janes and James Van Eaton) became Sun house band. "Red Hot", "Flyin' Saucers Rock & Roll" are outstanding rockabilly numbers and other songs are outstanding too.

POMP-ADORE 17 July 2012
By Jukebox Dave - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
BILLY LEE RILEY-RED HOT: Unbridled rockabilly wildcat BILLY LEE RILEY may not garner the immediate recognition of fellow SUN label mates JERRY LEE LEWIS, JOHNNY CASH or ELVIS, but his best stuff was up there on the same astral plane. A gritty caterwauler and multi-instrumentalist who backed many SUN stars with his crackerjack band THE LITTLE GREEN MEN, roots purists relish his brashly rendered cult classics RED HOT and FLYING SAUCERS ROCK & ROLL; both were covered note for note by revivalist belter ROBERT GORDON and guitar ace LINK WRAY. This generous 26 track compilation also dishes out the honky tonkin' and RNB aspects of BILLY LEE's repertoire, from a hoppin' boppin' DOWN BY THE RIVERSIDE to a subdued (dare a say "mellow"?) version of LOUIS JORDAN's jump swing call to arms SATURDAY NIGHT FISH FRY. THE CLOVERS chestnut YOUR CASH AIN'T NOTHIN' BUT TRASH never sounded better than in RILEY's mitts and he administers a deep baritone groove to the bloozey DARK MUDDY BOTTOM. If you like your rock & roll raw, righteous, and real, RED HOT is one sizzlin' platter to tear up your sacroiliac to.

RATING: FOUR HEP CATS

High Energy late 50's rockabilly 18 Sept. 2008
By Michael L. Angelastro - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I'm a musician learning to play high energy rockabilly and Billy Lee certainly has something in his music that makes you wanna move. He has a great voice and the recordings are done well. His best song is "Got your Water boilin' baby", give it a listen!
