AllMusic Review by

Al Roberts Jr. was a rockabilly character created by Bob Clifford, a native of the backwoods of Middlesex, England. Hello, It's Really Me collects everything Roberts recorded -- the Rockabilly Guitar Man and Frogabilly albums -- in the late '70s and contains a little fictional story about his face. Like most self-conscious in-jokes, this one falls on its face because its jokes are too obvious and stupid, and there isn't much musical muscle behind the "laffs." It's a curiosity that may appeal to rockabilly completists, but even they might find that Roberts' tongue is a little too far in his cheek.
