Synopsis

Amazon.com
Formerly of the rockabilly/hillbilly-minded Dave & Deke Combo and veteran of countless recording sessions, double-neck-guitar maestro Deke Dickerson goes solo with the facetiously-titled Number One Hit Record!. No big surprises here: The pleasant-voiced Dickerson serves up a retro-minded stew of 'billy, country, swing, boogie, and rock & roll that showcases the artist's tasteful and fluid six-string work. Don't look for much emotional depth--the corny "What's That Cookin'," for example, explores chicken dinner while the cover of the Treniers' 1952 classic, "Poon-Tang," is about... well, if you don't know, don't ask--this is upbeat roots music for the sheer joy of it. Includes appearances by guitarist Larry Collins (of the Collins Kids), pianist Sonny Leyland (of Big Sandy's Fly-Rite Boys), and Joey D'Ambrosio, the sax man originally heard on Bill Haley's "Rock Around the Clock." --Neal Weiss

The title says it all.

"I met Deke and The Ecco-Fonics backstage while reviewing Mike Ness during the "Cheating at Solitaire" Tour. There we talked about their current album and their second album they were anxious to release.Guys with Talent and Experience!"End of the Line" is probably one of the greatest songs on the entire album, reminiscent of one of the few slow songs of "Bill Haley and The Comets" other songs to try: Poon-Tang, Mexicali Rose, and HotRodQueen.Watch for the ALL-STAR line up backing up Deke and the Ecco-Fonics!Great Rockabilly, be-bop, roots, Southern Twang mix! If you like Marty Robins, Elvis Presley, Hank Williams, Lead Belly,Buddy Holley, and the Big Bopper, chances are you'll like this!"
Had to have this one!

"As a totally biased family friend, I can't resist adding my two cents to the reviews of this CD. I haven't had my own copy until recently (bumming my mom's), and just had to get one of my own to drive with. The music on this disc definitely makes me smile and there's no question that I'll eventually have the entire Deke collection. Great job, man! xoxox"
It's a poon-twangy great time

"I'm sitting here in my livingroom watching my 16 month old daughter dancing to this cd. This is a frequent flyer in my cd player. From the Jerry Lee Lewis-y "Mexicali Rose" through the fun tracks "Forest For the Trees" and "Hot Rod Queen", this is the hillbilly happening cd of the 90's. My favorite songs are "Feelin' Low" and "Lady Killin' Papa", which must be autobiographical for ol'Deke, the ol'dog. If you're a punk rockin' hillbilly like me, you'll love this cd."
