A modern day retro-rockabilly sound sporting a stripped-down sound, Rockin' Ryan and the Real Goners deliver the goods on this sparkling debut. Authentically produced by Deke Dickerson on old tube equipment, it becomes darn hard to tell the difference between this and authentic '50s recordings. These boys have done their homework, keeping it direct and unfancy, making originals like "Old Speedy Pete," "Gettin' Lowdown on You," and "Flirty Mae" shine as bright as the spirited covers on here. Great sound, lotsa energy, and a real commitment to style are its highest recommendations. Looking for a new band that can rock like an old one? Look no further.
