THE ROCKETS - Hot Rod Boogie, CD (OSR-012)


ROCKETS_-_Hot_Rod_BoogieThe debut album of the Athenian hep cat kings is out and it's damned marvellous! Boppin' rhythm, killer double bass, brilliant guitar sound - Cliff Gallup alike - and of course the great Nashville coloured voice of Ace Moreno! Every song gives a good reason for dancin' and stompin'. Notice the beautiful instro "Sweet Magnolia's Curtain" and listen Telecaster Nick at his best. Also wonderful are their four covers ("Just Because", "Rockin' Daddy", "Blue Jean Bop" and Charlie Feathers' trademark "Tongue Tied Jill"). 13 dynamites in ... the best rockabilly album that ever released in Greece!
