AllMusic Review by

Duane Eddy was America’s first electric guitar hero in the late '50s, and he placed several instrumentals on the pop charts with his distinctive low and twangy guitar sound. This ten-song set, which includes classic versions of “Rebel Rouser,” “Movin’ and Groovin’,” “Forty Miles of Bad Road,” and “Peter Gunn,” among others, makes for a brief but enjoyable introduction to this influential guitarist.
