Notes:
Acquired master tape from the JEMS archives. Here is a nice sounding recording with an odd mix though since it favors the drums(especially the bass drum) of the Cats who were finally getting their due here stateside in 82 after building an audience over in England for 2 years prior. These guys pretty much single handedly revived the whole rockabilly and the neo/pyscho-billy music scenes that would follow later on. If you like stuff like Gene Vincent and Eddie Cochran then you will love these guys.
