Editorial Reviews

When the Stray Cats rolled into Montreux in July of 1981 they were one of the hottest properties around. They had 3 hit singles and a UK top 10 album already under their belts along with a string of headlining concerts, all of which had come since their relocation from New York to London in 1980. The band's combination of original songs and rockabilly classics with a punk attitude and style had caught the moment to perfection. Added to this were their considerable musical accomplishments and knack for songwriting. All in all it was a heady concoction and the crowd in Montreux reacted with near hysterical excitement, something rarely seen in what is usually a polite and reserved audience. This is the Stray Cats at their peak. / Line-up:
Brian Setzer (guitar & vocals); Lee Rocker (upright bass & vocals); Slim Jim Phantom (drums) / Track Listing:
1) Sweet Love On My Mind 2) Double Talking Baby 3) Rumble In Brighton 4) My One Desire 5) Ubangi Stomp 6) Drink That Bottle Down 7) Storm The Embassy 8) Stray Cut Strut 9) Fishnet Stockings 10) Important Words 11) Rock This Town 12) Runaway Boys 13) Be Bop A Lula 14) Somethin Else 15) Pretty Pretty Baby

5.0 out of 5 stars Stray Cats are young, lean and mean January 30, 2013
Verified Purchase
This video captures a young, talented and hungry trio playing rockabilly as if their lives depend on it. The music is pure rockabilly, but performed with a punk sensibility. A mixture of covers tunes and original compositions, including a rare lead vocal by the stand up bassist Lee Rocker on "Drink Your Bottle Down". Barely into his twenties Setzer is already a very accomplished player. Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom play and perform hard, never letting the bottom fall out. A great snapshot of rock and roll being snatched back from the disco days. This is how rock and roll should be played. I encourage any fan of The Stray Cats, rockabilly, punk, or incredible guitar playing to buy this DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars STRAY CATS LIVE AT MONTREUX 1981 December 10, 2012
Verified Purchase
IF YOU'RE A STRAY CATS FAN, YOU'LL LOVE THIS EARLY CONCERT FOOTAGE. SETZER PLAYS MORE TO THE ORIGINAL SOUND RECORDINGS, UNLIKE A LOT OF THE B.S.O. CONCERT FOOTAGE YOU SEE TODAY. THEY EVEN DO A VERSION OF GENE VINCENT'S PRETTY PRETTY BABY, WHICH THEY NEVER RECORDED. FOR THIS PRICE IT'S A GREAT ADDITION TO A COLLECTION. - C.C.

By Rykre
When I saw this at the store of The Stray Cats Live in 1981, I thought that it would just be some raw coffee house venue performance because I never heard of them here in America til around the end of 1982. When I first heard "Rock This Town", I thought that it was some new material from The Kingbees. They being a rockabilly band out of LA, that was rather popular in Detroit when I lived there.

Anyway, being an American band, and performing live from 1981, I couldn't believe how that huge audience there were already into the band like they've been hearing The Stray Cats for years. I was wondering, "Were they the opening act for some other band?" because there was a lot of people there too.

Upon doing some research, I found that the Stray Cats released their first album in the UK in February of 1981. We in the states didn't get their first album "Built For Speed" until July of 1982. 17 months later. What's up with that? Was the American music industry resisting their style and dissing them, where they had to take their music overseas?

Anyway, if you're a Stray Cats fan or a Brian Setzer Orchestra fan, this is a great concert to own on DVD. For years I've always wanted to own some early concert footage of such a great band like the Stray Cats. Even their most recently filmed shows (like "Live in Brixton") is a treasure to own.

It looks like this DVD is also down to just being a few copies left for sale. So, jump on it if you see it. If you're reading this review, than, guess what? You know you want it!
