Biography

Biographyby Steve Huey

The key group of the early-'80s rockabilly revival, the Stray Cats scored several big hits on both sides of the Atlantic thanks to a striking visual style tailor-made for the early days of MTV, as well as genuine musical chops that evoked the best players of rockabilly's original heyday. The Stray Cats were formed by guitarist/vocalist Brian Setzer in the ... Read more in Amazon's Stray Cats Store

The first - originally released in 1981 - and many would argue best, Stray Cats album. It is certainly the purest rockabilly album they released.
Classics such as "Rock This Town", "Fishnet Stockings" (a clever rewrite of an original 50s rocker, as with "Crawl Up and Die"), "Runaway Boys", "Rumble in Brighton" and of course "Stray Cat Strut". "Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie" got a working over for a new audience, "Double Talking Baby" is a cover of Gene Vincent's take on the Danny Wolfe tune.
With Welsh rocker Dave Edmunds at the helm, they couldn't go wrong.

This is the Stray Cats first and greatest record.
Stray Cat Strut, Rock This Town and Double Talkin' Baby. It s catchy 3 chord stuff with unbelievable technical playing which is as rockabilly should be.
My deapest regret is that i never saw them live; largely due to the fact that i was eight when this record was made. But this particular recording has all the energy of their live cds which are also worth buying in my opinion.
Many of the releases after this one, were not nearly as good. This is the definative Stray Cats album, and it sets the benchmark for Rockabilly music in general.

No U.S. release?? 21 April 2002
By D Todd - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
What a joke!! This is one damn fine album. I remember purchasing this when it first came out as an import LP (courtesy of a great review in Trouser Press, which was really the early version of Mojo, but I digress) and none of my friends could understand what I saw in these guys (Styx anybody???). Of course a year or two later they were MTV poster boys and the rest is history. Where do I start...Fish Net Stockings; Wild Saxophone; Ubangi Stomp; Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie. Oh yeah, a couple of hit singles here too (Stray Cat Strut and Rock This Town). Forget the Greatest Hits and Built for Speed. This one and Gonna Ball are the only two that you need. Why these are not available Stateside is a complete mystery.

Their TRUE first album 21 Oct 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the first album the Stray Cats recorded, and it was released in Britain. Tracks from this first album and the second British release "Gonna Ball" were culled to form the first US album, "Built For Speed."
This album is their true debut album, and it is still the BEST Stray Cats album. Better than "Built For Speed." You just can't argue with songs like "Fishnet Stockings." I still love this stuff.

Rockabilly Legend's Best Album 16 July 2010
By Stevelvis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Robert Gordon is the guy that really started the rockabilly revival in the late 1970s, but the Stray Cats' first self-titled album was the one that received the most media coverage in the UK and started the rockabilly craze of the early 1980s. The first album by the Stray Cats was released in the UK in 1981 and was available only as an import in the USA. The Stray Cats wouldn't become really popular in the US until 1982 when cuts were taken from their first two British albums to create their first US album and then they hit it big with their videos on MTV.

"Stray Cats," the cd which is still available in the USA only as an import includes the hit songs "Stray Cat Strut," "Rumble In Brighton," and "Rock This Town," which was cowritten with Dave Edmunds. Also included are the old rockabilly classics "Double Talkin' Baby," a hit for Gene Vincent, "My One Desire," which was written by Dorsey Burnette and was a hit for Rick Nelson, "Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie," which was a hit for Eddie Cochran, and "Ubangi Stomp," which was a big hit for three Sun Records rockabilly stars Carl Mann, Warren Smith, and Jerry Lee Lewis. My other favorite songs on the album include "Runaway Boys," "Fishnet Stockings," and "Wild Saxaphone."

The Stray Cats who consisted of a bare bones trio, chose some great songs to cover, but Brian Setzer was a good song writer too. Brian of course has gone on to greater fame and continues to be the most popular mainstream rockabilly artist of his generation with his own band still playing rockabilly, swing, and jazz.

Rockabilly musthave 23 Feb 2009
By George - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Forget all the best of albums and the rest. This is the album which you're gonna get. You won't be disappointed. If so....sorry buy the latest Celine album and forget about getting into serious music.
Excellent Rockabilly and Old Time Rock and Roll and Remastered to Boot! 11 Jan 2006
By Frederick Baptist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Stray Cats is that rare band that emerged in the early 80s playing straight up rockabilly against a backdrop of post New Wave and the latest British Invasion e.g. U2, Eurythmics, Depeche Mode, Duran Duran, Culture Club etc and yet still managed to chart 2 hits from this album on the American Top-40 countdown: "Rock This Town" and "Stray Cats' Strut". The other tracks are far from filler material too with "Rumble In Brighton" being the one great standout among other good tracks. If you are into old time rockabilly like Cliff Gallup or just plain Bill Haley type rock and roll, this is the disc to get. Now this album has been very well remastered for a great sound and comes in a mini-lp sleeve packaging which is a nice have. The price for this import is pretty steep though which makes me glad I was able to get this from a source in Japan which is a lot closer to home for me and hence save lots of moolah on shipping and handling let alone the list price as well.
