Billy Lee Riley sounds surprisingly sprightly for a veteran rockabilly performer on his 1997 comeback, Hot Damn! Conceived as tribute to his musical roots and family, Hot Damn! is a farily engaging set of traditional rockabilly and country, punctuated by effective detours into the blues. Riley might not have the energy he did in the '50s, yet this album proves there's still a bunch of life in the old boy.
