AllMusic Review by

Rudy Grayzell did the original '50s rockabilly classic, "Ducktail" (covered by Joe Clay, among others). This four-song EP pairs this Texas rockabilly singer with members of The A-Bones, Skeletons, and others, cutting two originals and covers of songs by two San Antonio buddies that were in The Texas Kool Kats with Grayzell in the mid-'50s: Eddie Dugosh ("One Mile") and Doug Sahm (the swamp-pop ballad, "Why Why Why"). The backside of the pic-sleeve has a picture of The Texas Kool Kats in 1954, when Sahm was an 11-year-old steel guitarist.
