A marvelous, underrated band
Candace Scott | Lake Arrowhead, CA, USA | 08/25/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Somehow it wasn't all that cool to listen to the Stray Cats when they were popular in the early 80's. Now there is a renaissance of appreciation for them due to Brian Setzer's resurgence as a swing band leader. In many respects the Stray Cats are superior to anything Brian has done as a solo act. He wasn't as accomplished or as slick vocally, but his raw guitar playing was better showcased in this trio. Most of their songs were highly derivative, but they have worn well and sound as good as they did 20 years ago. This is a fine introduction to their music and encompasses all of their great songs."
Short, but good collection.

"Truth be known, there's a few better "Stray Cats" collections around. But, even though this is only 10 tracks, it does have what's essential. Included is "Rock This Town", "Stray Cat Strut", and "(She's) Sexy + 17", probably their three biggest hits. The other seven on here are all good though, and possibly recognizable even to the casual fan. This is great for the price, but if you need more, check out "Greatest Hits", or the lengthy "Runaway Boys: '81-'92"."
Best rockers in town

"Stop wasting your time and buy this record (or any stray cats record)! The cats at their best (and they're back in 2004!)."
