Built for Speed is the best of the Stray Cats albums, and is excellent throughout. What would make it even better however is if DCC would include their most excellent cover of "You Can't Hurry Love" (Originally released as the flip-side of "Rock This Town" 45) as an extra track. Are you listening DCC?

THANK GOD they re-issued this classic! It has been impossible to find, even in used CD shops on vinyl! This is THE ORIGINAL rockabilly album, the one by which all others ought to be measured. It has hard pounding tunes (Runaway Boys, Rumble in Brighton) and ballads (Lonely Summer Nights) showing the band's depth and style. No collection is complete without it.

I have an original pressing of this album. I don't know if an original pressing is worth a lot of money or not much money but I don't want to play it too much and wear it out. I am glad to see that it's been reissued on vinyl album. To preserve my original pressing of this album I will buy the reissued pressing. Now down to the songs. I was a Stray Cats fan when I was a sophomore in high school back in the 1982/83 school year. An instant fan. Seen them in concert once and saw The Brian Setzer Orchestra three times. Brian Setzer is an excellent guitarist. Slim Jim on drums and Lee Rocker on bass adds to the overall experience. When the Stray Cats first went onto the scene in the late '70s they were thought of as new wave or punk because the norm was long haired bell bottom rock with loud guitars. The Cats mixed traditional rockabilly sounds with a new wave or punk fashion statement. The Polecats and The Rockats were other great bands of that era. very song on The Built For Speed album is excellent. The combination of analog format and these classic neo-rockabilly songs is a great combination that can not be surpassed. I will order this reissue vinyl pressing very shortly. I must suggest to all you younger listeners who like The Stray Cats to buy this album on vinyl and hear how rockabilly was really meant to be heard. If you don't have a turntable then buy one. There are plenty out there on the market. For those of you who are my age and loved The Cats still and did back then but only have the CD format then get the vinyl. You will hear the difference. I am not against CDs. I have tons of CDs including The Stray Cats CDs and out of convenience listen to them but do listen to my vinyl collection on a regular basis too.Read more ›

If you like the rockabilly genre this release is a must have! Feeling a little down - give this a spin, should pick you right up! They've stood the test of time, which is a good thing all by itself.

Great album. I was pleased to see it as an mp3 download, which was available immediately. This was their first album, and probably their best.
