Ricky Lee Brawn has just sent me this hot-off-the-press CD, the first on his new Rickster label, which was recorded in Clapham, south London. Many of you in the US will have seen this band during their lengthy visits to the States in the last few years and will know that this is a first-rate band.

The album has only one cover version (Tears on My Pillow) while the rest are new compositions by Helen Shadow, Ricky and other band members. It is a good mix of styles, a touch of soul, ska and R&B to go with the usual jump-jive, Rockabilly and Rock'n'Roll. I have only had the chance to play it through once and there are already several tracks that have grabbed my attention. My favourite is Hop On Baby, reminiscent of Jack Baymoore & the Bandits' Lou Millet-styled Rockabilly. Line up is Pat Reyford, Al Nicholls, Anders Janes, James Compton, Alex Bland, Tim "Trundle" Purkess & Ricky Lee Brawn. Check them out! (Bill Smoker)
