"From the country sounds of webb pierce to the hard living songs of lefty, merle and gram parsons, There is no better sound in rockabilly music than the original country/rockabilly tunes on this album. Glen and his bands through the years on t.v. or on stage serve up prime rockabilly as raw and genuine as it gets. I know glen was close to elvis and took a lot of influence from him. It shows on the rocking renditions of his tunes, but the rocking originals are the heart of the collection. Blue jeans and a boys shirt and one cup of coffee are true rockabilly classics. It is a shame that glen's music is not more well known to true fans of this music."
First generation rockabilly still rockin' !

"This CD showcases the career of first generation rockabilly Glen Glenn, who is still performing today. "Laurie Ann" was a pick hit of the week on Dick Clark's American Bandstand in the late 50's, however, due to military service Glenn was not able to be stateside to promote its move up the charts. Gary Lambert's lead guitar work on "Everybody's Movin' " is especially exciting to rockabilly fans. Gary has been with Glen since their school days in Southern California in the mid-50's. Glen began his career as a country singer, but when he heard Elvis sing "Baby Let's Play House" (also on this CD) he was hooked on the rockabilly music form. Listen to some of the cuts from this CD and if you like rockabilly in its original 1950's raw form, give this one a try..."

"This CD contains the contents of 2 LP's, plus two bonus tracks. The first LP (Story) consisted of alternate takes of many of his best known songs. It's pretty good, but may take a little getting used to if you are familiar with the original releases. The second LP (Everybody's Movin' Again) was recorded years later (1970's or 80's) and sounds it. More country boogie than rockabilly."
