  • Burnette Rocky - Wampus Cat (CD)


    If such a thing as a true thoroughbred, rockabilly royal family exists, then Rocky Burnette is undoubtedly the Crown Prince. The son of Johnny Burnette, nephew to Dorsey Burnette and first cousin to Billy Burnette, Rocky Burnette may have only been two years old when his father’s Rock ’n’ Roll Trio won a recording contract with Coral Records in 1956 at the height of original rockabilly fever, but he has continued to carry the flame throughout his adult life. Signed to EMI America in 1979 he released the aptly titled Son of Rock and Roll” LP containing the punchy ”Tired of Toein’ the Line” which, released as a 45 rpm single, climbed the US Pop chart in 1980 to lodge at #8 – a Top Ten hit of which his dad and uncle would have been very proud! A year or two later, Rocky teamed up with the Rock ’n’ Roll Trio’s original guitarist, the late Paul Burlison, and toured Europe – and it became the first of many such trips for Rocky which continue to this day, over a quarter of a century later.

    The ferocious ”Wampus Cat” contains 14 tracks of high-energy ’billy bop. Rocky pays tribute to his illustrious family with new versions of Rock ’n’ Roll Trio favourites such as ”I Love You So”, ”Please Don’t Leave Me” and ”Lonesome Tears In My Eyes”, while on ”Rock Therapy” the family trade is placed in the able hands of Rocky’s daughter, Shanti Burnette – The Grand Daughter of Rock ’n’ Roll!”
