"You're kidding, right? If this is the Bobby Hendricks I recall, he DID substitute for Clyde McPhatter after Clyde had led the original pre-Ben E. King Drifters. It was his voice on "Drip Drop" (later a Dion hit) which I took for Clyde. And yes, "Itchy Twitchy Feeling" IS important and while not everybody can do this EVERY TIME, buy this package just for that song THIS time. You'll find something else here to make up for whatever you think you overpaid for. Make sense? Does to me."
I agree with James Scally

"Itchy twitchy feelin is one of the most (if not the most) rockinest songs recorded in the whole golden rock n roll era. I mean this song just cooks from beginning to end with one of the best sax breaks of any Rock nRoll song. The Coasters backed up Bobby on this rockin classic from 1958 and it really should've been a number 1 pop and R&B hit. But it only made it to the 20's on the pop charts and to #5 on the R&B chart-but heck who cares.Bobby was greatly influenced by his idol Clyde McPhatter and he and Dee Clark could've substituted for Clyde in the 50's and noboby would've noticed the difference(they both had Clyde down to a tee). But neither Clyde nor Dee ever rocked and cooked on a song like this one. This song is a true representation of 50's Rock nRoll."

"In a day when rock 'n roll is buried beneath hip hop and alternative it is hard to find something within this genre which is new and exciting. While I wasn't around when this music was charting I find it electrifying-- "new" to my ears. "Itchy Twitchy Feeling" has an upbeat and energetic feel, it gives me a sense of the excitement that must have been felt in the early days of rock n' roll. "Psycho" is a hilarious novelty, just as clever as some of Eminem's numbers are today. All the tunes on this record you can dance to; something (dancing) that's been missing from the rock scene for all my days (but, ironically not missing from hip-hop, which I believe was influnced by this music and possibly by this artist). If you're looking for something new, buy it! I like to listen to this in my car. People stop me and ask me who it is!"
