Review/Comments/Thoughts:
There were a few interesting things I've read concerning this album, the first is that 7 of the 13 tracks are all covers that were popular between 1952-1962 Brian Setzer breathed new life into these songs, in the form of "Modern Swing" which I have become a fan of, this album whetted my taste for that musical style, a very strong album no fillers its a very uptempo album, One interesting thing I had read was about the song You're The Boss Originally a duet with Elvis Presley and Ann-Margaret this time Mr Setzer brought in Gwen Stefani Another favorite is Sleepwalk an instrumental, which was used the original was used in the movie "La Bamba" I at one time had the poster of this album cover because to me it is so Big Band influence from that 1930s-1950s period. This album In my Opinion was pure brilliance
