CD Reviews

Stray Cats Turn it up a Notch
Eric D. Sweetwood | Normal, Illinois USA | 08/15/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Absolutely no one does the rockabilly hits like the Stray Cats: nobody. This album proves it. 20 Flight Rock is so incredible, it must be heard to be believed. Somethin' Else just jams, I Fought The Law is almost better than the original, Be Bop A Lula, surpasses the orginal, Let It Rock is everything you expect it to be and Train Kept A Rollin' will keep you rollin' and wanting more. The rest are excellent as well, but these moments stand out. An excellent CD that is a must-have for any true Stray Cats fan and any true fan of rockabilly. Brian, Slim Jim, and Lee; you have done well."

"All covers. Occasionally sounds like they are just going through the motions, but, overall a fine compilation. Check out the bad translation of the lyrics. Very funny."
Oldies but goldies...

"Album is dedicated to their idols. Cover of "Be-Bop-A-Lula" is probably the best cover of this song I ever heard, "Can't Help Fallin' In Love" is very beautiful too. It's a beautiful collection of rockabilly's greatest songs."
