Notes: Recorded in his home town of Memphis with microphones hung from the rafters to capture that true "live" sound this record is a fun romp across an early landscape molded into rock and roll. After playing on 21 gold records with Elvis, Bill gathered together some players and took center stage. A simple record, the arrangements are mostly spare and leave room to breathe. The cover art, black crayon or charcoal roughs out the dancing forms, a few butts in the ashtray and the source of sound. And don't forget, as the cover calls to our attention, this record is "teen terrific for dancing".
