The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 137

After a two or three week absence Friday night rockabilly is back! Back once again like the renegade master, D is for damager, A is for…. Al Sweatt. Al’s 1958 single I hate Myself is a hard to find piece of rockabillly (hard to find in a physical format- it’s dead easy to find on the internet, you just type it into  a search engine and it appears). This song was the flipside.
