Synopsis

Album Description
Original album remastered with four previously unissued tracks added! Liner notes by Nick Tosches! More whangin' stomper killers from the King Of The Hunch, gaw-ron-teed to wilt houseplants, scorch speaker fabric, and kill crabs, lice, rats & unwanted roommates in one long playing blast! All previously unreleased vintage material circa 1958-63! Hasil Adkins was a wild man, a rockabilly psycho who recorded his bursts of emotion and lunacy in his West Virginia shack (where he was found dead in April 2005). These two collections on CD or vinyl round up 40 of those raw, rockin? wonders, the 1958?63 cuts that made him a cult hero and sent him out on tour to meet and scare his new fans. These are frantic rock stompers: his takes on Blue Suede Shoes and The Banana Boat Song plus Gimme Back My Ring; Chicken Twist; I Wanna Kiss Kiss Kiss Your Lips, and more. 20 tracks including four bonus cuts!

Mystery achievement, so unreal

"The uncelebrated king of rock 'n' roll. This album is just as good as the first one released by Norton, 'Out to Hunch'. Collectors, do not hesitate."
Peanut butter rock and rollin good time!

"Probably the second best Hasil release on CD, next to out to hunch. There are 20 excellent tracks, recorded from 1956-63, two of them unissued in the states, and two previously unissued at all. His take on "The Banana Boat Song" and Blue Suede Shoes" are both great, The title track rocks big time and "Chicken Twist" sounds mysteriously like "The Chicken Walk", hmmm...... The liner notes are pretty good as well, with some rare photos.
A truly timeless collection from the Haze, you WON'T be sorry with this one.
