Rockabilly ain’t big. Never has been. Even in its Eisenhower heyday, rockabilly never basked in the mainstream’s lucrative luminescence. What did manage to slip through the cracks was, for the most part, painfully polished, cleaned up, and made ready for the countless vanilla masses.
Although it has reared its snaky head several times since then, rockabilly remains, lurking happily in the underground with bands like The Frantic Flattops, maniacally grinning in the dark.
This remastered and expanded reissue of The Flattops’ 1993 debut features the original LP, three live cuts recorded for WMAX in July ’93, three previously unheard collaborations with rockabilly icon Ronnie Dawson, and bonus track "Teenage Partner." (2003)
