Like a breath of fresh air

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Backed by a rocking band featuring British guitarist Chris Spedding, Baltimore's Robert Gordon really comes into his own as a vocal stylist. Excellent choice of cover material combined with crack arrangements make this a record you will want to play at your next party. Stand-out cuts include "Wheel of Fortune", "Black Slacks", "Its Only Make Believe" and the title track."
Top neo-rockabilly album
Daniel Perez Albert | Valencia, Spain. | 04/07/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"this is one of the 10 essential neo-rockabilly records,every rockabilly aficionado must have. It's almost all the record composed with covers. All the tunes has passed the test of time (the record was recorded in 1979) increasing his valour amazingly. The Chris Speeding guitar boogie lines (above all in the title tune) it's really rockin' and the rhythm section stands with a great power and sound. But the best of all is the amazing strengh and punch of the voice of Robert Gordon. Take a listen to "Walk on by", "Blue Christmas", "I just found out", "Wheel of fortune" or the ballad's ballad "It's only make believe" and you will recognize that Robert Gordon is a vocalist far beyond the rest of the neo-rockabilly bands had ever offered.But don't expect it's only plenty of ballads, "All by myself", "Black Slacks", "Am I Blue" or the Gene Vincent tribute "The Catman"(an original tune cowritten by Robert gordon) are songs that have been very influential in the european neo-rockabilly of the 80's. Really essential."
