Let's Rock
Commander Cody
If all you know about the ol' Commander and his crew is "Lost in the Ozone" or "Hot Rod Lincoln", then you gotta listen to this stuff.

"Truck Stop at the End of the World" is a screwball black-humourous take on World War 3.

"The Home of Rock'n'Roll" celebrates "those yellow Sun Records" ... and rightly so.

"One More Ride" is a sad ballad of a dying hobo, dreaming of one more train ride to somewhere where it's always warm and dry and "a hobo is a regular guy", while "Rockabilly Funeral" is a hilarious deadpan account of a rockabilly star's burial in his Cadillac, with plenty of reverb on the eulogy.

And "Midnight on the Strand" demonstrates the Commander's versatility -- it's pure Big Band swing, years before the Zippers or Setzer's Big Band made that stylish again.
