Stray Cats
Live At Rockpalast 
(Made In Germany Music)

The Stray ones weren't alone in the 70s/80s neo-rockabilly resurgence; other leading representatives included Robert Gordon, the Rockats, and the Blasters. But the singular lightning they had bottled was a bracing, raucous combination of Gene aggression and tuneful Eddie style. They stalked world stages, faces like fists, in the explosively defiant rebel tradition. These convulsive '81 and '83 Rockpalast uprisings emblazoned their gutsy essence. 2 CD and DVD set.

Recommended '81: "Rumble In Brighton," "Drink That Bottle Down," "Storm the Embassy," "Fishnet Stockings," "Gonna Ball,"
"Rock This Town," "She's Sexy and 17"

Recommended '83: "Double Talkin' Baby," "Something's Wrong With My Radio," "Look At That Cadillac," "Banjo Time (Foggy Mountain Breakdown," "Stray Cat Strut," "Built For Speed," "Too Hip, Gotta Go"

Video "Rumble In Brighton"
