Description

Rare Detroit Rockabilly, from a son of Tennessee, lead singer Jerome Leon James, strongly influenced by Elvis his racing "uh huh" deliver, superbly supported by rich vocal group "Aaarhs" from The Rhythm Rockers; with the star of the session the pounding guitar pulses and the impressive midway guitar solo, that gets repeated towards the finale.

One really cool Michigan Rock N' Roller... that ticks all the boxes including rarity.

Weird but entrancing Doo-Wop is hidden away on the flipside.

Two sides from the desk of Robert Szilagy who in later years 1966 onwards was an influential part of the Sidra / Drew labels.

RARE ad condition is break-taking..



US rockabilly singer born Jerome Leon James in 1940 in Holdwald (Tennessee), Leon James recorded for the labels Bumble Bee Record Inc. and Oasis (4) from Detroit, MI.
