More raw rockabilly and country bop, this time from the vaults of Capitol Records. While the label had Gene Vincent
, a quick listen to these will reveal rockabilly sounds with the accent on the 'billy. Skeets McDonald
's "You Oughta See Grandma Rock" goes a long way toward defining the compilation's strengths, and Tommy Sands
, long thought of as a teen idol singing pop mush, stokes the fires here with "The Worryin' Kind" and "Playin' the Field." While Ferlin Husky
masquerading as Simon Crum
on "Bop Cat Bop," The Rio Rockers' "Mexicali Baby" and Bobby Lee Trammell
's "You Mostest Girl" show the length and breadth of the genre, perhaps the most fascinating earful of all is The Louvin Brothers
testing the waters of rockabilly with "Red Hen Hop" and "Cash on the Barrelhead."
