Rockabilly Boom

In the true spirit of Beat Poetry, we go from upfront electro banger, the 1950's.

I've been listening to a lot of Rockabilly recently, mainly spurred on by Cut Chemist and Keb Darge's excellent compilation 'Lost and Found: Rockabilly'. This track is from Johnny Burnette, released just after the break up of The Rock and Roll Trio in 1957 and is a dark, screaming, hiccupy slice of magic.
