Product description

This CD is a blast from wrestling days past. The tracks on this song, sung by such wrestling legends as Captain Lou Albano, "Rowdy" Roddy Piper, and Minnesota's own Jessie "The Body" Ventura, are reminiscent of a time way back in the '80s when bouncy keyboards, drum machines, and extended guitar solos passed for a good pop-rock song. As such, you won't find quite as much groove or grit in this CD as in later WWF compilations. A notable exception is Junk Yard Dog's "Grab Them Cakes," which starts off sounding like Frankie Smith's early-'80s hit "Double Dutch Bus," then quickly orbits right into Funkadelic's cosmic universe. Nikolai Volkoff's new-wave version of "Cara Mia" is strangely touching, sung as it is in Volkoff's earnest baritone. Also good is Hillbilly Jim's "Don't Mess with a Country Boy," which showcases some fine bluegrass banjo and fiddle playing, a nice contrast to the rather lackluster covers of songs like "Land of a Thousand Dances" and "Tutti Frutti." You can tell that the wrestlers are having a lot of fun being rock stars on this CD. If you are a fan of the sport, you'll more than likely be a fan of this disc. --Michelle Riggen
