What can you say about the Memphis rockabillies?

Johnny Burnette - Hound Dog
From 1956 this is prime time Memphis rockabilly. No wonder the flying saucers were scared to land.

Sonny Burgess - We Wanna Boogie
Sonny Burgess & fellow pianist Kern Kennedy playin at High Rockabilly 2005 (Spain).

Billy Lee Riley - Pearly Lee
Recent front row footage of BLR with Dutch band The Bellhops from October 2007 in Roermond, Holland.

Carl Perkins- Blue Suede Shoes 1956
From Green Bay 2007, it's sadly too short a clip but the bright suit is enough to get you going.

Hayden Thompson - Love My Baby
Original Sun Rockabilly Star at The Rhythm Riot 2006

Jack Earls & the Ragtime Wranglers - Take Me To That Place
Live at the Rockabilly Rave Camber UK, October 2004.

Barbra Pittman - I'm Getting Better All The Time
Ms Pittman at the Rockabilly Rave shortly before her untimely death. Miss Mary Ann and Lynette Morgan look more than happy to supply backing vocals. Great rocking version, and probably the first handclapping solo I've ever enjoyed.

Carl Mann - Mona Lisa / I'm Comin' Home
Carl Mann rocked it up at Screaming Fest Saturday the 9th of June 2007.

Narvel Felts - My Babe
The always excellent Narvel Felts rocks the Green bay 2005 festival with Ashley Kingman on lead guitar.


Charlie Feathers - That Certain Female
Not concert footage of Charlie but a funny guy called Mike miming. Great face.

Junior Thompson - Raw Deal
Again, not a clip of the artist but equally exhilarating footage of the ultra rare 78 spinning around on an old record player. I just wish it was my 78!
