AllMusic Review by

Sonny Burgess was part of rockabilly's first generation, recording for Sun Records in the 1950s, but even in the '90s he was still capable of tearing it up. This '92 recording shows a sexagenarian Burgess still breathing fire on hardcore rockabilly tracks where he's ably backed by--among others--guitarist Dave Alvin, formerly of the Blasters. There's no audible softening of Burgess's hard-driving sound here, just raw rock & roll in its purest form.
