The Proto-Fonzie?

Stud Cole - Burn Baby Burn

Stud Cole was about the last of the rockabilly cats, making singles into the mid-to-late '60's. By that time, it must have been hard to find a band willing or able to put down a convincing hickerbilly thump. So instead, he hired the stoners down the block.

The result could be a great crash-up of 50's and 60's styles. Sort of like the Gino Washington stuff. It falls a bit short, though.

There are some points where the band coughs up a cool garage menace, but Stud's C-minus vocals always bring them back to earth. If you like really weird, give this a try. If you like technique and style, give it a pass.

Hey I was one of those stoners that played on Studs song! we were all friends and he was cool just way to ahead of his time!
