So, while doing some really fun research for The (Dis)Appearance of Nerissa MacKay, I've had to get into rockabilly. I had no idea how much fun some of this stuff was. I hadn't heard Jimmie Rodgers' stuff since I was a kid. (My favorites are "Honeycomb," "Kisses Sweeter Than Wine," and "Falling In Love Again.") And the only Bill Haley song I knew was "Rock Around the Clock."
But tonight I have tons of new tunes to listen to, and I've discovered The Maddox Brothers and Rose! Yeehaw!
I love this stuff!
Here, try some out:
Maddox Brothers and Rose "Honky Tonkin'"
Jimmie Rodgers "Honeycomb"
Good stuff. I'm having fun with this research! :)
