If neo-rockabilly is your bag, the latest Greyhounds platter is definitely for you. It features nine originals and five covers (Link Wray, Sleepy Labeef, Jerry Capeheart, Leroy Davis). Their sound takes you directly to the 80’s and reminds me of the best band of the era. But you can’t reduce them to just one style. You’ll hear a song or two that borders early psychobilly, sizzling instrumentals (Run Chicken Run and the Monsters – often covered but this one stands among the best), authentic sounding rockabilly (All the Time, Rockin’ Stone), blues (Story Of My Life) and some country influences too (You Wanna Leave Me). A well played (excellent guitar interplay) and varied album with good originals.
