The Other Part of the Show
Sleazy Roadside Stories
Commander Cody & his Lost Planet Airmen

This album documents the non-"Greatest Hits" part of a show that the Commander and company did at Armadillo World HQ in Austin in the early Seventies (the "Greatest Hits" part came out as "Live from Deep in the Heart of Texas", also worth your while).

This is demented western swing/rockabilly at its absolute best, from Billy Kirchen's guitar and lead vocals to the Commander's manic piano and occasional vocal.

Particularly worthwhile tracks are "Ain't Nothin Shakin' (But the Leaves)", "Boppin' the Blues" and a truly demented "Jail House Rock".

You Need This. Okay?
