Red Hot

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Jurek
Billy Lee Riley was not one of the better known artists to come out of Sun Records during the rockabilly years, but he was effective, and at times utterly powerful on both his recordings, and as a live performer he could rival, on his best nights, Jerry Lee Lewis. This 26-track collection contains virtually every side you would ever want -- and then some -- from those crazy, heady years at Sun. Tracks like "Red Hot," and "Flyin' Saucers Rock 'N' Roll," and "Rock Me Baby," are his best-known tracks.

Tracks like "Red Hot," and "Flyin' Saucers Rock 'N' Roll," and "Rock Me Baby," are his best-known tracks. He also does a more than acceptable cover of Louis Jordan's "Saturday Night Fish Fry." but it's a little known fact that Riley wrote a true enduring classic that has been played by everyone from Ted Nugent and Johnny Winter to John Lee Hooker and Son Seals: "Baby Please Don't Go." Strangely, he is not remembered for this cut at all despite its enduring significance as a rock and blues standard. Some of the tunes here are demos, both for rockabilly fanatics, this is where the real treasure lies, in those sides that were unfinished or released as B-sides. Considering Riley's varied catalog later on, this is an excellent place to start.
