Editorial Reviews

The third album from the New York Rockabilly trio was one of the most anticipated albums of 1983. The Cats stood out in the midst of the New Romantic wave of Spandau Ballet, Visage, Duran Duran, Kajagoogoo and others at the time as one band who had toured incessantly and recorded as fast as they could. Dave Edmunds returned to guide these proceedings and the album produced two hits, "Sexy & 17" and "I Won't Stand In Your Way".

5.0 out of 5 stars CENSORED LYRIC June 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is without a doubt, ONE classic STRAY CATS recording. "I WON'T STAND IN YOUR WAY" is the greatest tune Brian Setzer has ever recorded.
But this is a first for me: THERE IS A CENSORED BLEEP OF ONE LYRIC IN THE OPENING TRACK, "REBELS RULE". I have never purchased a censored CD, or Vinyl Album for that matter, in over 30 years of collecting music. This is an IMPORT by Arista. Do they censor lyrics in Britain? I did not know. I know this band was popular in England before they made it in America. Their first 2 vinyl releases were British Imports which I still own. And they're available on IMPORT CD here at Amazon. Although I'm having trouble obtaining GONNA BALL. But this recording, RANT AND RAVE WITH THE STRAY CATS, was one of their first domestic releases back in 1983. Why was it not domestically rereleased on CD? Probably too obscure.
BUYER BEWARE!!! I still had to have this as it doesn't seem to be available anywhere else but on IMPORT. Most of the great tunes from this are on THE STRAY CATS GREATEST HITS, except for "LOOK AT THAT CADILLAC". I'm a purist, and I had to have the original recording. Maybe it will become a collectors items. Who knows? WEIRD!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Geniusness! July 10, 2000
By Michael
Format:Audio CD
Well, being 15, a typical kid would like, alternative, punk, hip hop, but somethin' about this band caught my eye. Maybe the upright bass, or the way Jim played standing up, or the way Setzer could sing & play that guitar. On this cd, you'll find humor, rebellion, & heartache. Some great guitar skills, great singing, & great writing! The band is tight & the songs are top notch! After hearing this band, alternative, punk, etc, are totally out of the question. It's tuff, sweet, & stylistic! Enjoy! Yee-haw!

5.0 out of 5 stars Rebels Rule! June 7, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I'm a big Stray Cats' fan and this is my favourite album. Every song is good. "Rebels Rule" is Bo Diddley kinda thing, "Something's Wrong With My Radio" is the fastest song, "Look at That Cadillac" is featuring groovy sax from Mel Collins, "(She's) Sexy + 17" is the hottest song "I Won't Stand in Your Way" is a beautiful ballad featuring 14 Karat Soul on background vocals and "How Long You Wanna Live, Anyway?" is teenage angst ridden song.
The coolest Stray Cats album ever!

4.0 out of 5 stars mobstar67 April 5, 2006
Format:Audio CD
this would be the 2nd us release for the cats who on there first us release captured everyone from the stones,robert plant and just about everyone in every major city with the hodge podge of there first two uk releases and called it built for speed.

the cats arguably at there best live and tearing the roof off of jionts with the busboys in 82.finally ending there run as rockabily kings playing the us festival to some 650,000 people in california who most said stole the three day show just like queen had in live aid in 85.

stage two,time to record there second us album,again with veterean rockabilly enthusiast dave edmonds producing the cats seem to go from rumble in brighton to songs like shes sexy and seventeen,too hip gotta go,teenage rebels..the sound was clearly reflecting many of the teen beat type off rags they were ending up in,not because of there great musical ability but because bryan looked soo cute in that i wont stand in your way was obviously a step back for the cats and the band toured and again i seen them loving every minute of it but the band was disanfranchised with brian on one side and slim n lee on the other,after the tour the band announced its breakup.what a nightmare!!the band that was most responsible for putting rockibily back on the map worldwide in the uk,usa,japan,australia and all over the world was finito.

brian went on to do a fantasic album called the knife feels like justice wich is the best of the two since he went big was his best solo work ever followed up with live nude guitars.

5.0 out of 5 stars the best Stray Cats album February 25, 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is my favorite Stray Cats album. Start to finish Setzer and the boys rock it up! Used to drive to school every day with my friend Liz - smokin' Luckys and singin along to this album. From "Rebels Rule" to "I won't stand in your way" this is one of my top 20 albums of all time. BUY it now.

FYI: To correct one of the previous reviews...the censored bleep in the first song was intentional. Sometimes musicians and artists censors themselves for effect - giving it a feel like someone had censored the song in the 50's. Egad!
