More southern-fried roosters shakin' their legs and squawking about how great females are.. "Lerv, lerv, terggin' at mah heart-strangs..!!".. but we men who are "aware" know that it's all fantasy, is it not? So, in essence, there is nothing all that cool and quirky here.. a couple of early Elvis tracks.. Janis Martin.. Johnny Restivo's classic "The Shape I'm In" but most of what surrounds the cream is instantly forgettable. I mean, I was just playing this in the car and aside from the tracks I was familiar with, nothing really jumped out at me and grabbed me by the cajones. Sure, there is fun to had here and for the rockabilly completest it is probably an essential buy... but if you are just starting out, go for One Day Music's "Royal Rockabilly Flush" instead.,, and try to find latter-day stuff like "The Hubcaps" cds if you want some Swedish punch to your rock'n'roll..( you'll find them on the Tube of You)
Great value 2 CD collection. Some great rockabilly tracks from RCA, including Elvis's well known early recordings "Good rockin' tonight and "That's alright mama", but also some lesser known tracks which make the set worth a listen.
