I just bought a Charlie Feathers CD (His Complete King Recordings) and I’m officially hooked on rockabilly. Since I’m already a punk fan (Ramones, The Clash, Minor Threat, NOFX, et cetera, et cetera) I’m also thinking of buying my first psychobilly CD. [brag]I already have a pretty good place to buy them: Ear Candy in Missoula has a whole section (OK, two racks) devoted to rockabilly and psychobilly. They also sell Oblio Joes CDs, and an Oblio Joes bandmember works there. (Yep, they’re a damn fine Missoula band.)[/brag]
So, which CDs should I buy? I’m very much aware that rockabilly came and went prior to the Era of the Album, and that I’m going to get a lot of compilations and ‘Best Of’ and so on. Psychobilly sounds interesting and more modern, and I would greatly appreciate some help there as well.
