Straight ahead rockabilly with tight, clean arrangements. However, what really makes them so good is Colbert Hamilton's incredible voice. Like a husky, echo chambered Elvis, he belts out 15 tracks on this percussion heavy CD.
"CD release of the classic 'Colbert Hamilton & The Hell-Razors' album from a very exciting period in Rockabilly music. Raw and rockin' with Colbert's great vocal style, prominent slappin' bass, and hot rockin' guitar licks too. Originally issued on vinyl back in 1984, this is a must for fans of the early 80's Neo-Rockabilly sound." Howard Raucous
Great neo-rockabilly album - nicely produced. Colbert Hamilton is backed up here by The Nitros, featuring the excellent guitar playing of John O'Malley, solid drumming from Ritchie and nice full slappin' bass from Gary Day (Frantic Flintstones, Gazmen, etc.). A Japanese record label invested quite a lot of money in this project, and the result is a very classy production. Track 12 is an excellent cover of the Thin Lizzie song (Phil Lynott was a personal friend of Colbert's).
