Big Sandy & His Fly-Rite Boys are the real deal -- they know rockabilly inside 'n' out, but not as over-moussed, by-the-numbers poseurs. They've traced the source of American music via the coalescing/colliding of pop, country players hopped-up on bennies and suave, irreverent jump-blues singers (like Jordan). At it since '93, the Boys have so much swinging suss, they don't need to play it loud and hyper to convince that they're for real. Their lissome guitar and steel licks glisten like holy water at a sunrise service, while Sandy's stunning voice is as smooth as Dino, earnest as Ritchie Valens, as boisterously cool as Big Joe Turner and Dion.
