Another CD album from the Bear Family Records - Rock'n'Roll CD series - Rocks -

Sleepy LaBeef rocks - yes, he really rocks on these 35 classic recordings. We're talking raw and authentic 1950s rockabilly here. And some 1960s and 1970s recordings that rock even harder, if possible, while retaining the uncompromising spirit that only a true original artist can. Sleepy LaBeef was there in the mid-1950s when rockabilly was born. He heard and saw it all, and he was a part of it. From his first records for Starday and Dixie in Texas, through small Houston labels and the major national label, Columbia, Sleepy still kept rocking. He carried on rocking on the reactivated Sun label in the 1970s. It was a marriage made in rock 'n' roll heaven.

On stage Sleepy LaBeef has long had the reputation as a human jukebox, a living, breathing, guitar-picking history of American music. After fifty years, he still dispenses pulsating rocking blues and country songs, one after the other in amazingly quick succession. This CD is as close as the listener can get to that kind of live experience. And, better still; you get the original master in pristine quality.
