"The last time the name Sonny Burgess appeared in this space was as walk- on character in a review I did on the PBS documentary commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Sam Phillip's Memphis-based Sun Records. I placed him among the one hit wonders that fill up the music world for a moment and then .... Who can forget his sizzling "Red-Headed Woman" though. It still sounds good over 50 years later. In Sonny's case, moreover, it appears that he just kept right on being a good old boy rockabilly artist if this CD is any indication. I do not know that his playing has the passion of his youth but on several tracks he is `hot' in the old rockabilly style. Listen to "Enough Of You", "Flattop Joint" and "Stuck Up" if you want to know, or want to remember when men and women played that early rock & roll for keeps."
