It was the twang heard 'round the world: Rockabilly was born out of country, bluegrass, jazz, and the blues in the 1950s, becoming rock ’n’ roll and ruling the world. Here’s the story of Elvis Presley’s first Sun records that inspired all. And here’s Carl Perkins, Gene Vincent, Eddie Cochran, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, and many more rockabillies from the golden years of 1955–1959, in a book chock full of photos, collectible memorabilia, movie posters, rare records, fashion, and rebel lifestyle. Includes contributions from noted music journalists Greil Marcus, Peter Guralnick, Luc Sante, Robert Gordon, and more.

The story continues today, with a rockabilly revival that began with stars, such as the Stray Cats and Robert Gordon, spreading around the globe from Europe to Japan. Today, rockabilly is better than ever, with bands like Rev. Horton Heat and others playing the music and living the life from Memphis to Helsinki to Tokyo. There’s still good rockin’ tonight!

The photographs on the pages of this book are like something out of teddyboy paradise, and the overall design suits the shots. The memorabilia of rockabilly heart-throbs and colour, along with the presentation, is stunning, and the book is really more about this image than the writing. However, the book offers a good insight into the beginnings of rockabilly, its influences, the main players, the more unusual players and the genre across to Europe and through the ages. Certain generations will enjoy Marcus and Dregni’s compilation of reports from specialists in the field.
