A newly recorded 14-track rockabilly masterpiece by an exceptional veteran band, picked by Keith "MuzikMan" Hannaleck as the February 2004 Lance Album Pick of the Month:
Those of you that yearn for days gone by and the simple rock n roll of Elvis and Buddy Holly ("Not Fade Away") will love this new CD by the Bobby Fuller Drive (remember the Bobby Fuller Four?) titled "Breakin Rocks." Upon first listen I thought, "Gee these guys sound so old," well they are and so is the style of music, but that really is not a factor. Those thoughts and perceptions came and went very quickly. I listened some more and before I knew it, I couldn't stop tapping my leather boots and singing along as if I was transported back to those good old days.
Get ready for some rollicking and bluesy rock guitar lines and from-the-gut vocals on fourteen great tracks. My personal favorite is "Never To Be Forgotten." If I were an A & R man working this music, that song would be the first single.
There's six original Bobby and Randy Fuller songs and a lost-and-forgotten-dusted-off-from-the-vaults recording (1964) by Bobby Fuller called "Nancy Jean," which is a real treasure as it is now recorded with Bobby Fuller Drive and brother Randy's voice added.
Its plain and simple folks just like the music; this is darn good
stuff that holds up to ANYTHING recorded these days. Enough said. This is a
brilliantly uncomplicated recording with a lot of love and care in every track,
and that is what it is all about for this music fan.
