"I agree with what the person below said, if you are expecting this to be a traditional Cut Chemist album, don't get this album. BUT on another note, if you love Cut Chemist and also happen to love rockabilly (like I do) definitely pick this up!! Or if you haven't ever listened to rockabilly, this album will get you in the mood for more, I highly recommend it.
Keb Darge and Cut (obviously!) managed to find some awesome tracks that are really rockin'. I want to have a party so so bad just so I can share this album with people!
I hope if you pick up this album you love it as much as I do."
Great selection of rockabilly and jump blues, unremixed

"I can see how you might be disappointed with the album if you expect it to be remixed by Cut Chemist and Keb Darge, but this is a great compilation. I heard a bunch of the songs on the Roadhouse on KEXP and fell in love with them. I am a bit hot and cold as far as rockabilly goes, but there are some real gems on this album. To my ears, this stuff is a little more varied than a lot of more modern rockabilly. Highlights for me include Buddy Griffin and his Orchestra's "I Got A Secret (I Ain't Gonna Keep)," Chuck Berry's "Too Much Monkey Business," and Mark Lee Allen & the Driver Brothers' "Oil Field Is Burning" on the Keb Darge CD and the instrumental "Run Chicken Run" by Link Wray and his Wray Men, Wayne Walker's "All I Can Do Is Cry," Charlie Feathers' "Bottle To The Baby" on Cut Chemist's CD. On the whole, this is a great buy!"
