5.0 out of 5 stars A CERTIFIABLY INSANE MASTERPIECE! July 24, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Evan Johns and the H-Bombs circa 1986, were raving lunatics.There has never been a wilder band or album than "Rolling Through The Night". As a teenager Evan Johns learned the fine art of wild guitar playing when Washington D.C. guitar legend Danny Gatton took him under his wing. After touring with Gatton, Johns moved to Austin and formed the H-Bombs. He went into the studio detirmened to make an album of relentless rockabilly abandon. I'd say mission accomplished. He was never able to come close to making anything this good again. From the opening cut "Vacation Time" where he sounds like he's singing through a megaphone, and knowing Evan Johns he probably was. To the last cut "Stop Loving All The World Girl", this album never lets up. There's no slow dance numbers on this cd. My favorite songs here: All of em. But the songs that would have made it on the radio in a perfectly insane world: "Madhouse" with it's 2 for 1 overdubbed guitar purposely clashing with itself in twin leads. This one's so dadgum good it's scary. "Sugar Cookie", maybe the fastest rockabilly song ever scorched into vinyl. This one is outstandingly nuts with it's fantastic guitar pickin'. He changes pace a little with "You're A Cutie" and offers up some cool farfisa organ driving the song along ? and the Mysterians style. This one ends all too quick. The best of the 3 instrumentals here is "Where'd You Get That Bruise". Man, Johns really knew how to name his songs. It's a great instrumental that'll leave a scar on ya long after you hear it. "Taking Care Of My Home" is the closest thing to a country tune that Johns gets. Wild country that is. It would fit right in on a Southern Culture On The Skids record. Read more ›

5.0 out of 5 stars high-octane fun-Rock 'n roll too good to be true September 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
One can say a lot about Evan John's spirited playing, his truly cutting guitartone with great depth, the honest-happened-in-real-life tunes etc, but above all, this an insanely vibrant, joyful and hard-swinging (Jim Starboard's quirky swagger/stagger pulse on the drums contributes to this greatly) record, which is just TONS of fun.
Qualities all missing in the all-too-serious self-involved music of the eighties, and as such, this record really saved me in that wretched era; and I still enjoy it mightily. One of those rare rockin' albums that ALWAYS puts one in a good mood.
It's my favourite Evan Johns recording (he's got a new one coming up that promises to be real good, by the way) and to me, a True Classic, and not just for the Eighties
so, if you're looking for a good time coupled with honest musicianship, buy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Turn It Up and Enjoy!!!! March 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Evan played with Danny Gatton before the LeRoi Brothers recruited him. So we are talking about some impressive credentials here. This CD captures Evan at his best., raw, electrfying, and twangy. This is definetely a classic CD by a relatively obscure artist. Evan ain't no Van Morrison when it comes to vocals but who cares. Just turn it up and enjoy!! This is really a 5 star ++++++ CD!

5.0 out of 5 stars WOW! October 10, 1999
Format:Audio CD
As far as debuts go, this ranks up there with Hendrix's "Are You Experienced?"in the energy and swagger departments and in the perfect mix of songs and edgy musicianship.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not a roller rink rockabilly man... May 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This guy is serious and his band meant business. All but gone from the scene, Evan is pretty much a legend around my area, and for good reason. One of the all time best guitarists to ever live. He was doing Brian Setzer before Setzer was Setzer. He paved the way for guys like The Reverend Horton Heat. If you like rockabilly this cd is an absolute essential. Buy it now!
