There could not have been a better follo-up to Rollin' Rock CD-101, Mack
Stevens' "Hardcore texas cat music", than Rip Carson's "Rip Carson & the
Twilight Trio", Rollin Rock CD-102.
RIP CARSON &THE TWILIGHT TRIO are a new young California band which has
betting rave reviews all over.
Rip origionally hails from West Virginia, and luckily for us, he has not
forgotten his southern roots when he recorded this CD for Rollin' Rock.
Their highly acclaimed appearance at VIVA LAS VEGAS has given them an
international audience, and a Rollin' Rock special european and US tour is
now in the works with NARVEL FELTS, RAY CAMPI, and MACK STEVENS.
They further enhanced their reputaion by playing at the first rockabilly bar
mitzvah in history (Benny Weiser's Bar Mitzvah)
While a CD can never comensate for the wild and frantic visuals of Rip's live
show, nevertheless the savage rockin' rhythm comes across loud and clear on
songs such as "Don't Hold My Baby", "Full Of Sin", and "Two Timin' Woman"
The Johnny Burnette Rock 'nRoll Trio would have been proud!!!!!
This is what I call "HARD ROCK"!!!!
But Carson is not a one trick pony, proof of this are his moody western
psychotic tunes such as "Keep Your Pain" and "All Alone &Blue". We have here
Twin Peaks, Quentin Tarantino, and Sergio Leone all wrapped into one!!
"So Long" and "Down That Line" are addictive melodic rockers which stick in
your head after only one listening. This is what they used to call "Hit
Records", before "Hit Records" were outlawed!
The strong material, Danny Angulo's superb guitar, Reece Linley's pumpin'
bass, and Charles Henning's crashing drums, all add up to a rip=roaring
Sixteen tracks in all, if you like raw and nasty rockabilly and real
rock'nRoll, and not the clean sterile stuff so many of today's bands produce,
this one's for you daddy-o!!!!
-Rockin' Ronny Weiser, the Rockabilly Rebel Westerner from Las Vegas, the
Wild Wild West!!
