When the British group Matchbox formed in 1971, rockabilly music was already a nostalgia trip, destined for at least two popular revivals and timeless hipster cachet. That the band has remained intact for over 35 years is a testament to the great, simple music and to the excellent musical and personal rapport of the band members, which shines through every track on this two-volume retrospective. Volume Two includes rockin' originals and an ultra-cool cover of "Route 66."
