We have been waiting a very long time for the King Louie Combo to release their second album. Actually the first one is the best selling Blue Lake Records album ! We believe the second one will follow the same path, considering the quality level of the music it includes !
This time the band invited some guest musicians and you will hear saxophone, piano, steel guitar and harmonica as well as the now classic trio sound. Six songs are originals from the band. Great rockabilly stuff like "Squeeze Don't Tease", reminiscent from there hit Honey Bee, more black oriented things like Jimmy Mc Cracklin' s "Reelin' & Rockin'" or the truly amazing cover of "Whole Lotta Shaking Going On".
All the material is glued together by an unbeatable swing, check "Smoking Chesterfields....", with it's warm and clear sound...these guys don't need to hide anything...
Did I tell you the liner notes are from Jimmy Sutton ?...there must be a reason....
Do you remember the time when the first amplification systems were used to give instruments a new and stronger sound? It was in 1956, when a 18 year old truckdriver in Memphis Tenessee walked into the legendary SUN Studios. Not just because he wanted to meet some well known musicians at the time: he had an idea of a brandnew sound in his mind. He took black Blues and traditional Bluegrass Songs and mixed it up with the "white man's" tunes - Hillbilly. Done this, he gave this new beat a new name: Rockabilly.
KING LOUIE COMBO is the proof that this music isn't dead after all these years. The trio is composed of the classic rockabilly backline such as guitar, drums and upright bass. Their tunes are very melodic, the rhythm goes from swing to jive, from bop to stroll.
