Shakedown is a rock and roll classic,
This review is from: Shakedown (Audio CD)
I grew up with Bobby Fuller's music in El Paso in the early 60's and this CD takes me back to younger more innocent times. The incredible sounds that come from the CD are even more awesome when you remember they were recorded in his 'studio/living room' on Album Street in the Scotsdale subdivision of east El Paso-just 2 blocks from Jimbo's restaurant and ice cream parlor which had the best bean burritos in the Eastwood area!
Great sounds, great rock and roll. I listen to it all the time. I have seven Bobby Fuller CD's and this is one of my favorites.
His later CD's on the Mustang label include a lot of the same tunes and one can see how the early works were refined into even better sounds. Had Bobby not met such an untimely and mysterious death he would have been a performer of longevity and a member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame! Great lyrics, great drums, great guitar licks makes you want to find a girl and fall in love!
If you like rock an roll this is for you! Love songs, surf instrumentals, progressive country sounds, sixty's rock, it's all here. No disapointments here!
