If you like Bill Haley or Stargazers (the old Northern Band sound), you will definitely enjoy this longplayer. The 'normal' quartet line-up is joined by saxophone and piano. Sometimes it sounds like a good white cover version of an R&B rocker (but they are only own songs!), sometimes there are a few jazz and swing elements, so that also friends of Ray Collins get their money's worth. In between there are also some backing vocals. So the whole thing sounds like a very clean, professional recording from the 1950s, when the different styles united to form Rock'n'Roll. From the fast but danceable "Hop and don't stop", guaranteed best suited for record-hop, to the ballad, everything is there.
Vinyl release is planned!
