Song(s) of the Day # 825 Stud Cole

Great camp Elvis derived Rockabilly from 1968. Released at the time in a limited edition of a hundred copies it's since been re-released on CD. The sixties updates on that classic Rock and Roll fifties blueprint are what makes it plus Cole's utterly unrestrained and utterly over the top delivery. Truly the thing of cults and puts this straight into the company of Screaming Jay Hawkins and The Cramps.

Find it on Spotify or YouTube. The whole thing is a complete delight. I could easily post any number of songs but these two are sufficient to get across the general flavour. Second track Feels Good sounds almost like The King backed by The Troggs. A treat!
