Rock It Boy! CD
A great selection of tracks with psychobilly scene favourites Chuck Harvey and The Frantic Flintstones rockin' 'n' stompin' at their very best.
Review by Frederick Turgis jumpingfrom6to6
Originally released in 1993 first for the German label Rumble, this album has a strong rockabilly flavour in it. The line-up for this one is Chuck, Pug, Johnny Bowler (Get Smart, Guana Batz) and Scag. It's a very good album that only lacks of original songs, but with a charismatic band-leader like Chuck (and a solid band to back him) that's not such a big problem. The band draws into the catalog of Jerry Lee Lewis, hence the presence of a piano, Ricky Nelson, Rockin' Sydney, Johnny Burnette/Delmore Brothers, Hank Williams and delivers an excellent rockabilly version of the Clash's Jimmy Jazz. As usual with the FF it features different versions of previously released tunes like Blue Moon Of Kentucky, Will The Circle Be Unbroken and Your Cheatin' Heart. "Love For A Nutter" is a demo recorded with Alan Wilson that announces the following albums (X-Ray Sessions and Jamboree) and the beginning of a fruitful collaboration.
Mary Lou ~ You Call Everybody Darlin' ~ You Ain't Nothin' But Fine ~ I Can't Trust Me In Your Arms Anymore ~ Carry Me Back To Old Viginia ~ Blues Stay Away From Me ~ Blue Moon Of Kentucky ~ Your Cheating Heart ~ I'm Walkin' ~ Sweet Baby Doll ~ Will The Circle Be Unbroken ~ So Close To Heaven ~ Jimmy Jazz ~ Love For A Nutter ~ Broken Heart.
