Their two previous albums were released in the UK, but Hundred Dollar Bill is an imported Australian release which presents sixteen superb tracks of finest high energy 1950s inspired Teddyboy Rock 'n' Roll. It is melodic, atmospheric and totally rockin' throughout. The Lincolns have everything going for them - not only do they sound great, but they also capture the Teddy Boy look in a very cool way.
Darrel Higham has been very prolific for the last two decades, not only releasing his own material, but appearing as a band member or session musician for countless other artists. Most notable was his contribution in the success of his ex-wife Imelda May, and since their split Higham has added another two solo albums to his ever expanding body of work.
Higham is also featured on the debut album "Deliverance" by Jack Rabbit Slim frontman Bob Butfoy, which notably also features ace rockabilly drummer Rob Tyler who is known for his work with Restless and Dave Phillips among others.
The Rockabilly/Hillbilly crossover sound is currently enjoying something of a revival, and one of the best bands to come out of it are Glenn Doran and the Prairie Echoes. They have been busy with festival appearances and already made their mark with two vinyl singles. "Wild About Your Lovin'" is the much anticipated debut album which perfectly captured their blend of authentic Hillbilly and Country Rockabilly with a great mix of originals and well performed vintage cover songs. The superb vocals and harmonies are augmented by excellent steel guitar and fiddle.
For 1950s Rock 'n' Roll fans, the series of great value 4-CD sets continues with new releases from Bobby Darin and Santo & Johnny, as well as a second "Rock 'n' Roll" volumes which gathers 100 more absolute classics of the era.
New Psychobilly releases come from Canada's Creepshow, British funsters The Highliners, and the full set from The Cramps 1981 show which produced the recording of "Tear It Up" which was used is the film "Urgh! A Music War".

10 - HORST WITH NO NAME ORCHESTRA : BLACK SOULS IN BLUE JEANS CD
Rowdy rockin' Garage Rock 'n' Roll as Horst expands from a one man band to a duo, adding Orchestra to the name.

With Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and even some R&B acts like Little Richard and Fats Domino gaining popularity in the 1950s, it was obvious that Britain could no longer rely on ageing pop singers to service the young rock 'n' roll audience and the search for home grown talent began.
"Unsung Heroes Of British Rock 'n' Roll" is an excellent 2CD set which turns the spotlight onto some of the lesser known Rock 'n' Roll acts that surfaced on our shores.
Although Tommy Steele can't quite be labelled as unsung, he was the first British teenage star to perform Rock 'n' Roll and scored the first home grown hit with the original song "Rock With The Caveman".
The journey rocks on with 50 tracks including Terry Dene's cracking "Baby She's Gone", Wee Willie Harris' "Riot in Cell Block No.9", Dickie Pride's "Slippin 'n' Slidin'" and Vince Taylor's Brand New Cadillac - perhaps the UK's greatest rock and roll record.
This is a remarkable trip down memory lane which will no doubt remind the fans and jukebox junkies of the era's underrated or forgotten gems.

The 1950s saw a huge renaissance of Horror, Monster and Vampire movies, TV shows and comics in the United States, which coincided with the arrival of Rock 'n' Roll.
This led to the appearance of a plethora of novelty discs, often on tiny, mysterious, local record labels, some of which crossed over to become major hits.
"Monsters Vampires Voodoos and Spooks" is a 33-track celebration of such recordings, ranging from the obscure to multi-million-sellers.
It includes hits like John Zacherle's ghoulish "Dinner With Drac", Sheb Wooley's high octane "Purple People Eater" and the genre's biggest success, Bobby Boris Pickett & The Crypt Kickers' perennial "Monster Mash".
Then there are serious collectors' items from Carl Bonafede, Kip Tyler, Jackie Morningstar, Scottie Stuart, Leroy Bowman & The Arrows, Earl Patterson with The Darts, Frank N. Stein & The Tombstones and Jimmy Dee & The Meteors.
Also featured are such diverse names as Screamin' Jay Hawkins, LaVern Baker, Bo Diddley, The Big Bopper, The Hollywood Flames, Bert Convy, Johnny Fuller and Screaming Lord Sutch with many of the rarer tracks unavailable elsewhere on CD.

Rock 'n' Roll wild man Mr. Breathless has been hammering his piano all since the mid 1990s... and there's no stopping him - as the title of his new album "Can't Stop Rockin'" indicates.
This solid set also marks the return of the artist to Bluelight Records, the label that released his debut album no less than 20 years ago.
The track listing reveals what the album is all about: straightforward rock 'n' roll killers with no fillers, drawn from the catalog of Eddie Cochran, Chuck Berry, Gene Summers, Little Richard... and Crazy Cavan 'n' the Rhythm Rockers.

Stripped back and raw, the album draws on trashy rockabilly, garage, surf and all things wrong as Snakerattlers carve their own sound, while giving nods to the dark and obscure influences that drive them.
This Is Rattlerock was recorded on reel-to-reel tape by Adam Richards of Leeds rockabilly trio X Ray Cat Trio and has a fetishistic, trashy sound evoking the sounds of the cult 1960s Pebbles Compilations.
Like Lux and Ivy before them, Dan and Naomi Gott will enthrall you with this exciting new band, an evolution from their former garage punk three-piece The Franceens, which left their many fans dismayed when the band came to an end last year.
The Snakerattlers went public the week before the pair's wedding, with a self-organised gig in their hometown of York.
The band is inescapably entwined with Dan and Naomi's matrimony as they spend most weekends travelling the UK to satiate a hot appetite for their live Rock & Roll show.

Other highlights of the new releases come from The Sirocco Bros with their second full-length album of raw and rockin' Rockabilly and Blues Bop.
Their sound retains authenticity, with dark undertones and Charlie Feathers influences. Alice Jayne guests on two tracks.
50s Rock 'n' Roll collectors are treated to a third volume in the Rockabilly Red Hot and Rare series, delivering another 100 of the finest 1950s rockin' obscurities.
Other multi-disc sets come in the form of a second collection of movie songs from Elvis Presley, a 100 song set of tracks released on the HMV label in 1962, and a fine three-disc set compiling five original albums and more from guitar duo Santo and Johnny.
For psychobillies there is brand new material from scene stalwarts The Caravans and The Surfin' Wombatz.
