The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 112

One hundred and twelve?! Whose idea was this? How am I supposed to keep coming up with rockabilly posts every Friday night for this long? Eh?

Sonny Burgess recorded this belter for Sun Records- trumpet led rockabilly from the 1950s extolling the virtues of a red headed woman. Gotta love red headed women. Like current Bagging Area favourite redhead Rose Leslie (from sex and gore fest Game Of Thrones).

Lay Right Down In My Favourite Place

This has been added to a recent re-release of The House Of Love’s debut album, a live cover version of I Wanna Be Your Dog. Pretty standard fare you might think- it’s an easy song to cover, it’s a lot of fun to play, it stakes your left-field credentials as a Stooges fan. To be fair Guy Chadwick doesn’t really try to out-Iggy Iggy but the twin guitar work is a joy and this is a top quality live recording sound-wise. It also sounds like the mic was about three inches from Terry Bickers amp.
