For most of the world, this record is one of the ten best ever in Rockabilly... To me is a punk masterpiece. Don't laugh, man. I know what i am saying. This thing came out for the first time in 1957. C'mon, try to find something from this period of time, take a good look at your record collection to see if you have somethin' to even match this aggressiveness and tell me again, is this punk or not?
Punk, at least for me, it's a tag to describe best a rock n roll that played in the most furious way, in an out of control manner full of snottiness and wild actions... Again, is this record punk or not?
This album isn't just Memphis finest or Rockabilly's finest, is the template for later bands from the early Yardbirds to Motorhead and the Pirates. Even Macca the Beatle when covered the Big Joe Turner classic "Honey Hush", do it Johnny Burnette way.
Listen to this album's version of "Train Kept A Rollin'" and tell me-is what Lemmy had in mind or what?!
A fireburner for every side-burned out there still five decades later!
Who talked 'bout Elvis?
