Stray Cats - Hollywood Strut, The Unreleased Cuts

10 inch single features 'Stray Cat Strut' backed with 'Summertime Blues', 'Rumble In Brighton' & 'Rock This Town'. Erika Records. 2006. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. Here are the kings of Rock-a-billy at their most raw. The first five songs are from 1990, Unplugged and well past their prime, it's hilarious (Setzer blows the intro to Strut, and is admonished with "20 years of playing it & you still can't get it right!). The rest of the fifteen tracks are from a show at Hollywood's Roxy, recorded in 1981. The crowd is in the palm of their hands, as the group blisters through an extremly hot set. The mix is flawed, I suspect the cd was recorded from vinyl, or an old analog tape(listen to the major flaw that interferes with "Double Talkin' Baby"). All in all this cd sounds like a bootleg, but WELL worth adding to your collection!
