Levi Dexter
"Roots Man" (Rhythm Bomb / Dextone) 
Levi Dexter and and the Gretsch Brothers
"All Thru the Night" (Indie Japan)

by
DC Larson






Worldwide legend Levi Dexter has two riotous discs to his credit in 2014, and in reaction the crazy rockabilly nightime has burst into endless flame. His famous, authoritative vocals, whether offset by guitarist Buzz Campbell on "Roots Man" or parallel pickers ex-Magic Kenichi Yamaguchi and Katsuo Hino (of Sandra Dee) on "All Thru," resound clearly and with whipcracking passion. When Levi's on, everybody's movin' - though none as marvelously as the stutter-stepping dervish, himself. Truly, a King among kats.

Recommended "Boppin' Bernie," "Roots Man," "Cannibal Party," "Rollin'
                          To the Jukebox Rock," "Move Around"  ("Roots Man")   
                          "Seven Nights To Rock," "You're My Baby,"  "Oakie Boogie,"
                          "Everyday" (w/Gretsch Bros.
