5.0 out of 5 stars Not just Psycho ,totally Crazy., 12 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Roots Of Psychobilly (Audio CD)
First track on this fabulous double CD rather sets the manic tone for the rest of the offerings .Love Me by The Phantom [Jerry or was it Marty Lott] cut this piece of mayhem in 1958 ,mayhem reined in the studio with band members going somewhat berserk. during the recording but then after his manager had done nothing with it for about a year ,Mr Lott managed to get the record released on Dot of all labels and with the assistance of croon king Pat Boone of all people..
Lots of pretty obscure no hit wonders on here and I wonder if the compilers recognising this thought they would throw in a few old favourites to help garner sales .Most collectors of Rockabilly which most of this is will already have Whoo Hoo ,,Rock A Teens ,Ghost Riders in the Sky,The Ramrods and Mule Skinner Blues ,The Fendermen but what the heck they are great to listen to and even dare I say somewhat sedate to other tracks here
Vocal tracks alternate with instrumentals ., Screams and yells pervade and we even have a Bo Diddley beat on Jungle Hop.by Kip Tyler and the Flips,and when listening to Shombalor by Sheriff and the Ravels one wonders at what kind of marketing ,if any occurred when the disc was released.We even have, I Put a Spell on You ,Screaming Jay Hawkins which must have been pure R&B on it's release but who cares , what's in a name
If you are a serious collector or just someone who wants to go back and sample a time when not all Rock n Roll records made the charts then this is for you A great listen ,, remember Geffers told you so
