"Don't miss out on this one hepcats and kittens! This 12 track action packed album delivers authentic rockabilly, hillbilly and 50's rock n roll. Listening to this cd, it is easy to see why The Big Barn Combo were the undisputed winners of the 2000 Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly weekender talent contest! With instant rockabilly classics 'Red-Eyed Handsome Man, 'There's a Lot More Where That Came From' and 'Chip on My Shoulder' these cats really deliver the goods. You won't stop boppin and jivin there as these boys really go with 'Boppin Jeanie', 'Big Barn Boogie' and 'Who Should I Call'. Hop on the hillbilly express with 'Left is Left', 'Feather My Pillow' and 'Why Don't I Hear From You'. You'll keep on holding your baby closer with the surprise ballad finally 'Winner of the Human Race'. 10 out of 12 of these songs are self penned, not re-hashed songs posing as originals. The two covers,'Woodpecker Rock' and 'Sign on the Dotted Line', are refreshing and flow well with the rest of the album. Jimmy Sutton of Mighty Blue Kings and now The Four Charms does a fantastic job of producing and mixing. With strong vocals, great leads and a powerful rhythm section, this cd leaves you craving more."
