Put it on and turn it up loud,
This review is from: A Rocket In My Pocket (Audio CD)
This CD rocks along from start to finish.I haven't stopped playing it since it arrived. Unlike many other similar CDs there are no duff tracks. My only tiny quibble is the inclusion of Mystery Train by Elvis. Love the song but have it many times on other compilations. I would have preferred another "rockin' rarity" in it's place. This CD is brilliant if you love 50's rock'n roll.

For those who haven't heard any rockabilly I think Elvis' 'Mystery Train' will not only be a surprise but a revelation, especially if they only think of Elvis in 'jumpsuit' terms. Elvis should always be included in such compilations, and not separated from a genre of music that came into being when he made those historic Sun recordings. Revisionists may like to spout twaddle about it being around before Elvis but it really wasn't - not unless you count hillbilly music as 'rockabilly', which of course it wasn't.
