***This Is Pure Rockabilly Heaven***
tall-long-bill1955 | 03/09/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Sid King & The Five Strings are in reality a red hot early rockabilly/hillbilly boogie trio. King and his band sing and play everything from R&B, jump blues, country and hillbilly boogie, but it's essentially all realy rockabilly. Thier version of Blue Suade Shoes is exellent and also there version of Drinkin' Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee. This is joyous rockabilly swing that will get you gitterbuggin' and jivin' on the dance floor. This is some really fon boppin' wild music and is essential for any rockabilyl fan, this music was recorded between mid to late 50's, and the sound quality is exellent!"
A unique classic

(5 out of 5 stars)

"these guys managed to combine rhythm and blues, county and rock'n'roll in a way that created their own sound. "Put something in the pot boy" is one of my favorites, but really there a lot of of great songs on this collection. Plus, like most of the Bear Family releases there is a real cool booklet with lots of great photos and information."
Essence of Rock and Roll

"Sid King and The Five Strings are one of the many amazing acts to come out of Texas in the 1950s (others being Long John Hunter, Johnny Carroll, David Ray, Bob Luman, etc). I'm not going to call him a model rockabilly because rockabilly is a specialist or "ghetto-monger's" term, like "punk" etc. These guys generate rock and roll in its rough, passionate purity. Like Johnny Burnette. This disc is essential - and, like everything put out by Bear Family (one of the many European companies who bought up American music and sold it back to us), high quality."
