CD Reviews

Great high energy rockabilly, swing, jump blues, r&r and r&b
LARD-BUTT | 05/27/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This cd crosses many generes, however it is 1st and foremost an exellent rockabilly cd, with touches of blues, jump blues, western swing, boogie bop, r&b, rock'n'roll, jazz and swing. There is an exellent and very tight horn section on many tracks, and a heated rhythm section, complete with a driving bass, in the tradition of mid 50's rockabilly. Great vocals from this legend, who sounds pretty much the same as he did back in the 50's. This comeback cd, in fact the best document of his recorded works ever, and is among his finest recorded works as well . A fun, hard jumping rockabilly session, which is influenced by everything from Tex-Mex mariachi to Django Reinhardt and Spade Cooley. Awesome rockabilly cd."
Great Album, Sublime Moments

"Ronnie Dawson really came into his own on the back-end of his career. The series of records he put out in the 80s and 90s are in a class by themselves. Dawson's loose, assured singing and his great licks resonate with the years of dues paying the man put in to get to this point. On this record some songs are a little hokey (Club Wig Wam) but when you put on "You've got a long way to go" listen to the three guitars of Dawson, Eddie Angel, and Dutch rockabilly kid Tjarko Jeen bubbling along and you should get the idea. They play "Sucker for a cheap guitar" and if you're not smiling and jiggling then give it up! I saw Dawson play at a festival in Seattle. He had young Jeen with him and he was teaching him a kind of windmil thing to do when he took a solo. A little bit of stagecraft. It was a lot of fun. I wonder if Tjarko is still doing that move?"

"If Jerry Lee Lewis and Keith Richards had a two-headed love child, this is what he'd sound like.The real deal."
