Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

Setzer, Brian

Rockabilly Riot vol. 1 A Tribute to Sun Records

2005-09-09

Just what you'd expect from a rockabilly album with this title coming from the prince of rockabilly himself, Brian Setzer. Some fine covers of songs written between the years 1954-1957, originally released by Sun Records of course. This recording shows how relevant and well-loved the music from the '50's still is today. Classics by Elvis, Johnny Cash and the likes have been reproduced as closely as possible to the originals, only with a new-fangled digital clarity, you can decide which you prefer.
