5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely essential, 13 April 2011

This review is from: Rockin': The Rockabilly Scene (Hardcover)
Essentially a photobook, this gives outsiders and fans of the current Rockabilly scene a glimpse of the fans, bands and events that make up the rockin` scene. Great photos, well produced. This is the equivalent of The Teds book from 1979 for old and new rockabilly fans. This book should be in every library in the land. There`s a vibrant musical scene out there and, while it owes a lot to the 1950`s, is very much of today. It`s fun, and in todays pressurised world innocent fun is what we all need. Use this book as a starting point and then discover the music, old and new, on CD, record and DVD. You won`t regret it, once a Rocker always a Rocker. Buy this book now! Hopefully the definitive story of the 1970`s / 1980`s Rockabilly revival will be writen soon, there`s a challenge to authors!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for fans / ideas for photographers, 22 Dec. 2011

This review is from: Rockin': The Rockabilly Scene (Hardcover)
I really enjoyed this book and was recommended it from a respected member of the photographic community after starting a photography project covering the UK retro dance scene. The pictures are great, well executed and use a mixture of techniques - it takes an unusually comprehensive view (it covers, dancing, characters involved, venues, aspects of the international crowd and is an examination of a single sub-culture), the techniques Shaylor employs produce some stunning images often in low light environments. I regard this as a keepsake for lovers of rock and roll / Rockabillys old and new, a good reference of what's possible for event photographers and a wonderful holistic view of a scene.
