Synopsis

Amazon.com
You might think the last thing the world needs is yet another rockabilly revival band, but California's Big Sandy and his FlyRite Boys prove a welcome addition to the field with their first nationally distributed album, Jumpin from 6 to 6. For one thing, the Fly-Rite Boys construct their rockabilly not merely from the expected sources, honky tonk and jump-blues, but also from an often overlooked source, Western swing. When steel guitarist Lee Jeffriess and guest fiddler Brantley Kearns hook up on tunes like "Someone Like You" and "Honky Tonk Queen," the Fly-Rite Boys swing like few other rockabilly bands. --Geoffrey Himes

Jumping for Joy!!!

"By far a must have of anyone who enjoys rockabilly. I have listened to this album 100's of times and it just gets better. It is good quality music that makes you want to get up and dance. You will not be disappointed in this CD."

"Robert William, AKA Big Sandy, approaches this album with an enthusiasm and gusto that is largely missing on later releases. Check out the vocals-on-the-edge-of-control on stand out tracks Jumpin from 6 to 6, Different Girl and the raucous Juiced.A must have for rockabilly and country swing fans."
