The ghosts of Johnny Horton and Ricky Nelson are all over this one. Done LIVE in the studio to capture the energy and fun of a Riptones show.
Come and get it. Produced by Ian Spanic (of Spanic Boys fame), this is an unpretentious E-string heavy affair, full of Sun Sessions-era rhythm section energy and rockabilly boogie. All of it is topped off by the sweet vocal harmonies of the Bonansinga brothers. With a little Presley swagger, a little Buckaroo twang and a little Ricky Nelson thank you ma'am, it's just smooth enough and it's just rough enough.
Songs about food, yuppies on motorcycles, county fairs, food, and BBQ (which is better than food). And who can't relate to lyrics like "Danny Jo Doss got pissed and punched his boss" ("Danny Jo Doss")?
The ghosts of Johnny Horton, Gene Vincent and Red Sovine are all over this one. Done LIVE in the studio to capture the energy and fun of a Riptones show. It ain't high art, but dammit, it's fun. Doesn't that count for anything anymore?
