In the wake of Elvis' early tours through the South, Sonny Fisher and his band, the Rocking Boys, recorded these sides for Starday Records of Houston in 1955 and 1956. Whereas Sun rockabilly set hillbilly music to a boogie beat, Texas Rockabilly leans more toward R&B in both its slower tempo and in the bluesy sting of Joey Long's guitar. This is top-notch early rock & roll.
