Sid King and his Five Strings - Gonna Shake This Shack Tonightdotdotdot
artworkThis is a fine set of real rockabilly from down Texas way. Being the real thing, it's often unpolished and primal, but it's always dripping credibility and country fried vocals. Of the twenty nine tracks, just one is an instro, and it's less than interesting. Still, relics such as this deserve exposure if only to prevent them from fading away completely. This is a great representative of a bygone era. the liner notes are extensive, with many fine pictures and even a complete discography.
Picks: Twenty One

Twenty One dotdotdot
Rock (Instrumental)

"Twenty One" is a mighty primitive rocker, mean around the edges, with guitar and sax trading leads, and a mid tempo progression behind. Not very interesting.
