CD Reviews

Great Set
mencken61 | Metairie, La. United States | 10/09/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I live by two maxims. The one that applies here: there is never enough Johnny Burnette. (The other is: mind your own business. See, you shouldn't have wondered.) Well, there's Burnette aplenty here--and nicely performed. Robert Gordon is as usual in great form, his voice strong and his phrasing on the money. If the man ever hit a clam it would shock the civiized world. Chris Spedding continues his peerless fretwork. His version of "Gunfight" is carried out with ruthless efficiency and great ferocity. All in all an excellent performance."
One of the greatest Rockabilly albums ever made.

"Robert Gordon is the best thing to happen to rockabilly since Gene Vincent. His powerful voice and backup band is top of the line. A must for any true rockabilly fan. Spare no expense to obtain this album."
