(2012/RHYTHM BOMB) 17 tracks, KILLER COUNTRY ROCK and ROCKABILLY album incl. a great version of ‘Up Jumped The Devil’! If you dig the late Ronnie Dawson, you’re gonna like this! This album is THE REAL TREAT FOLKS!!! Razor-sharp guitars, a stompin’ rollin’ thunderous hound dog bass and a drum kit which will bring you close to the next nervous breakdown!! Roll on motherfuckers, roll on! That’s the stuff you gotta watch! 100 percent of ass kickin’ real rockin’ music! If you’re a Pat Boone Rock & Roll infected fingerpoppin’ daddy-o, get yourself a milk shake and go to hell but if you’re a real rockin’ cat this album is an investment in a pure silver platter which in the future will make your ear cleaning cotton sticks needless as a second butthole! ROCKERS, ROCK ON!

The Porter label was located in Phoenix, Arizona and had some really fantastic Rockabilly and Rock & Roll releases in the second half of the 1950s! Names like Red “Hot” Russell who’s wellknown to most Rockabilly collectors because of “Stop” or the Rio Rockers which are famous because of their KILLER Chicano Rocker “Mexicali Baby” which already was on many comps like the Capitol “That’ll Flat Git It” (BCD 15624)! “Mexicali Baby” by the way was first recorded at Porter and the recordings were then licensed to the Capitol concern in the same year! But Porter had a lot more Rockers than these artists! Mark Anthony with “Wolf Call”, Frankie Loren with “Hip Monkey” , Rusty Isabell’s “Little Miss Bute”or Darby Ward’s “Peepin’ John” only to name a few!! And the goody on top is that 14 tracks of the 29 were first released in 1998 when the CD came out!! All recordings have the best quality you can get because they were all taken from the original tapes and the stunnish linernotes are written by the Arizona music expert John Dixon who also helped Bear Family on the Duane Eddy Jamie recordings box set (BCD 15778)!! To admit – the cover really doesn’t really look like Rock & Roll at all but what you get on the silverling is what counts and I promise you fellas – this will blow your hat off!! You definitely will not regret the purchase of this fantastic piece of Rockabilly music!
Up for grabs now!! Brandnew Cherry Casino & The Gamblers 45 on Rhythm Bomb! After almost five years the band recorded two absolute dancable tracks! Only 500 copies were pressed and the record comes with a nice picture cover!
