It can be seen as an early incarnation of the Western Star studio he runs today. Included on this compilation are rare tracks that were recorded there and see the light of day for the first time. The first four tracks are Sharks demos recorded when Gary Day was in the band around They never appeared on a Sharks album but were recorded by the Gazmen who were basically the Sharks plus Alan Whyte. Chinatown , the old jazz standard is another guitar tour de force.
After a short intro and one verse that sounds as a launch pad, Guillan jumps into three amazing and inventive solos. The production serves the song well with a solid work on the rhythm section and the acoustic guitar.
After all these years and to my ears, the Sure Shots still hold the title of best cover of this song, despite many attemps by other bands. Released by Colin Mee who played drums for the Sure Shots between and , on his own Skip label, the early years digs deep into the archive of the band. The first four tracks come from a demo with Ian Rhodes on guitar. The sound is raw and a bit young at places but all the elements that will make constitute the Sure Shots are already here.
Next are two songs by the same line-up recorded three months later for a compilation album. By the time these songs were put on wax, Joe Guillan had replaced Rhodes on lead guitar bringing a touch of Jazz to their brand of Rockabilly. Four live tracks complete the set. The first two, featuring the first line-up, are pretty.
The cover reads Volume 1, but to my knowledge no Volume has been released yet. Buy it here. Taggy Tones — Unplugged, Unreleased, Unexploited. Tracks 1 to 6 are taken from a radio show and are recorded unplugged. These six songs worth the price of this album alone.

All listings. And the combo of metalflake and fogged panels always gets admiring comments. There are lots of traditional custom touches, too, like shaved door handles and emblems, and a toothy custom grille, in this case from '51 Ford F-1 pieces put together by Mike. Another traditional touch is the more difficult-to-create '54 Packard Clipper taillight conversion. Mike's are newly cast and were fitted to their respective openings for a perfect match.
The hood has been peaked and the trunk lid modified to lower its profile, while the headlights have been frenched—this work done in lead also from way back in the day. Mike was destined to own this car because he had been chasing it for years, watching it go through a couple of different iterations before opportunity, pocketbook, and wife Adele's approval converged in What attracted him to the car was its overall imposing looks enhanced by that roof line and low stance.
What didn't was a combo of purple paint and chameleon flames. Friend Don Caldwell agreed to help Mike tune up what needed fixing, but the little stuff could wait once the paint started cracking.Raucous Records is the longest established s Rock 'n' Roll, Rockabilly and Psychobilly CD, DVD and vinyl specialist on the internet.
