Album Review

This album is full of rockabilly in the vein of '50s and '60s rock like Wanda Jackson and Brenda Lee. The title track is a perfect example of this, a fast-paced number that features Eddie Angel doing some great guitar solos. There is also a garage rock element to the album, sounding very raw and jagged in portions. The Yardbirds' "Train Kept A-Rollin'" showcases Barbara Burnette's vocals, which do the genre justice time after time. "Jukebox" is more of a traditional country honky tonk in the vein of a Sun Records-era Elvis Presley or a latter-day Mike Ness. Unfortunately, it tends to lose a bit of steam near its conclusion, coming off a bit shabby after the guitar solo two minutes in. "Hot Rod Grace" has Burnette not going all-out vocally, but Angel again delivering a guitar riff worthy of Scotty Moore. It's quite easy to distinguish some of the musicians' influences, notably on "Half a Chance," which has a galloping start that resembles "Peggy Sue" by Buddy Holly. She also name-drops Hank Williams, but has more in common with Eddie Cochran. The most interesting track is "I Want You," which has several deliberate swings in it. If there's anything going against the album, it's the fact that the songs too often fall into the same structure or pattern. Thankfully, "Riverside Jump" has more of a groove working for it, making it the album's highlight. "Jump Back Honey" features some echo effects and delay on the vocals, which adds some texture to the sound. While a bit simplistic in its formula, it's an album that reverts back to a basic but still powerful sound when done right.
