The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 105

I said to Drew in the pub on Tuesday night (during our top level blog summit) that I didn’t know how much longer I can keep this Friday night series going. I think I’m close to exhausting my rockabilly goldmine. This song featured here before, three years ago, in the original Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night series (number 3 fact fans). It is the greatest rockabilly song in the world. It is just over two minutes of 1950s perfection. It is about leaving a girl in Kansas City and not being able to eat or sleep. It has a stupendously great riff. It is Wayne Walker and frankly, when it is playing, it is all you need.

The Return Of Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 57

Wayne Walker’s All I Can Do Is Cry is pretty much my favourite ever rockabilly record, and it was one of the first rockabilly postings I did in this Friday night slot. This is another of Wayne’s songs from 1957, here to get your Bank Holiday weekend off to a flyer.

Friday Night Is Rockabilly Night 4

This is the daddy- Wayne Walker’s All I Can Do Is Cry. Little known as a recording artist, but a widely recorded song-writer, including songs for Elvis, Johnny Burnette and Waylon Jennings, this is pure rockabilly gold. Driving rhythm and guitar, love lorn lyric, killer chorus. This song appeared when I guested at The Vinyl Villain during his Merry Month Of May series of guest-posts last year, but it’s too good not to be done again. As the legendary series of rockabilly cd’s claims ‘this’ll flat git ya’.
