The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 124

October 25th is also my wife’s birthday- I hadn’t forgotten this morning, no no no, I just thought I’d link it to Friday night’s rockabilly post rather than this morning’s John Peel post. So- happy birthday Mrs Swiss, this song is for you.

Elvis, as Chuck D said, was a hero to most but he never meant shit to me… well he never meant shit to me but all the same he never meant a massive amount either (or is that the same thing? Now I’m getting confused by Chuck’s double negative). He was rockabilly in the 50s though even if he very quickly became something else entirely. His songs recorded for Sun are great, full of swing and raw guitar parts. Like this one from 1955, written by Arthur Gunter.
