Required rockabilly listening

"I first heard many of these recordings when RCA released the double disc vinyl rockabilly retrospective called "Get Hot or Go Home" more than a decade ago. It remains one of the main reasons I still use my turntable. This may seem like a tremendous amount of money to spend on such a short disc (this disc in its entirety made up side one of Get Hot) but it is more than made up for in the timeless raw energy contained within. That phrase has been bandied about quite a bit in reference to classic rockabilly, but this is what they're talking about. The sessions with Mickey Baker (guitar) are the holy grail of this music and are absolutely incendiary. Standouts are Right Track, Cracker Jack, and Sixteen Chicks. Even the novelty title track will grow on you. Get it."
Don't mess with my ducktail!

"Very wild rockabilly. Rudy Grazell's Ducktail is a classic. He recorded with some of the finest black rhythm musicians of the time (guitarist Mickey Baker from Mickey & Sylvia, guitarist Skeeter Best, bassist Leonard Gaskin, and drummers Bobby Donaldson and Joe Marshall). A little short collection but very good! And he wasn't famous till 1986 when some english promoter arranged him a tour of England. Can you imagine that?"
