Reseña de álbum

Sleepy LaBeef did not record for Sun Records in the '50s, but his reputation as a rockabilly artist might mislead a few buyers into thinking Flying Saucers Rock 'n' Roll is a collection of '50s rockabilly recordings. In reality, this 24-track anthology spans LaBeef's 1970-1979 tenure with Plantation and the reactivated Sun Records. The disc includes LaBeef's lone hit from this period, a cover of Frankie Miller's "Blackland Farmer" that inched onto the country charts in 1971.
