Overview

Mack Stevens' brand of Texas rockabilly finally meets up with Rockin' Ronny Weiser, the production head of Rollin' Rock Records, the retro rockabilly label from the 1970s that formed one of the seminal influences on his sound and style. Stevens has always held power aplenty, but has often been jakelegged by the lo-fi production on his records for other labels. Here Weiser surrounds him with a band that cooks and a sound that's big, fat and echoed up just right. Highlights include nice duets with slap bassist Mary Ek on "Don't Start a War Daddy" and "Rockabilly Romance," well executed covers of Nat Couty's "Woodpecker Rock," Ralph Nielsen's "The Scream" and Hal Harris' "Lonely," and Stevens originals like "Hepcat Heaven," "Only the Good Die Young," "Diet Pill Boogie," "It's Armageddon Time" and the title track. This makes for Stevens' strongest outing yet.
