Flash, Crash and Thunder

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Bruce Eder
The Farmer Boys' complete 16 sides for Capitol, cut between January of 1955 and February of 1957, represent about as varied a body of music as one could squeeze into just four sessions in three years. The order isn't chronological, as the producers have put the rockabilly numbers up first, even though they came later, while their first, traditional-sounding records complete with fiddle and mandolin, the latter played by Bill Woods come last. Taken in totality, one gets several beautiful harmony-based ballads "No One", Lonzo & Oscar-type novelty tunes "Flip Flop," "Onions, Onions", and high-energy near-rockers "My Baby Done Left Me," "Cool Down Mame," "Flash, Crash and ...

The order isn't chronological, as the producers have put the rockabilly numbers up first, even though they came later, while their first, traditional-sounding records complete with fiddle and mandolin, the latter played by Bill Woods come last.

It's hard to say where the duo would have gone had it recorded any further, but the material the Farmer Boys left behind is exceptionally appealing musically, as well as great fun.
