STRAY CATS - Revolution Music Hall, Amityville, NY (2 August 2019)


Hello everybody!
It has been a while since my last post here offering something new. Well, the time has come! Finally we have got hold of this great FM recording at the Revolution Music Hall in the Cats native Long Island. Quite surprisingly, the band had an audition at the very same place (back then under a different name) and they did not make the cut. Kind of interesting that they decided to play this show at the same place.

It is a wonderful show, full of energy, with some classics and some new songs from their last album, "40". Also, they played "Misirlou" to the memory of the late Dick Dale. In my opinion, I would have dropped "Cannonball Rag" and "Misirlou" in favour of one or two more of their songs. "Cry Danger" would have been a nice option or maybe one of those songs that they have never or rarely played. If there was a moment to risk a bit on the set list and play something different, this tour was the moment.

I have edited a bit this recording from its original source. I have removed long gaps in between songs and some banter. Some people like the whole thing, I don't. Somehow it could lose a bit of the "spirit of the show" but on the other hand, when listening to it, it can be slightly annoying to listen to those long gaps in between. I do no longer have the original file, so... you'll have to make do with this instead. Either way, I hope you like it and appreciate it.

SLIM JIM PHANTOM, LEE ROCKER & TIM TORRANCE - Demos 1988


Hello everybody!!
We are just a couple of weeks before the Stray Cats kick off their 40th Anniversary Tour in Vitoria, Spain. I am very excited about the tour and to see what they are going to play, particuarly from their latest release.

However, today I have something completely different for you. These are some unreleased demos by Lee Rocker & Slim Jim Phantom together with the Los Angeles guitar player and producer Tim Torrance.

I am not going to post any audio-clip since I would really like everybody to download this gem and enjoy it. First of all, because these demos are a rarity and secondly, because I have truly enjoyed them!

When I first receive them, the only thing I could think of was, "man, what a great songwriter and singer is Lee". They sound very Phantom, Rocker & Slick, very 80s and very 80s film soundtrack, but they are amazing in my opinion. Also, something completely different to what we are used to.

The CD tracking list goes as follows:

- Stick Around
- Put Your Cards On The Table
- Rain On My Parade
- Don't Say If
- Heart Call
- You Say
- First Come, First Served
- Take Me To The City
- Falling Apart At The Seams

Some additional information for you:

- the song "Don't Say If" made it to a film called "The Perfect Match" in 1988. 
- Lee and Jim wrote all the songs, except "You Say" (music by Tim Torrance / lyrics by Gwynn Standlee).
- Ian McLagan plays the piano on "Stick Around". Additional keyboards by Tim Torrance (and also backing vocals).
- Only "Stick Around" and "Rain On My Parade" have Slim Jim Phantom as the "true drummer". The rest of songs have programmed drums by Slim Jim himself.

You can download it HERE.

Enjoy it,

STRAY CATS - The Bacchanal, San Diego, CA (25 February 1990)


Hello everybody!
Today, we have a one of a kind live recording. It is surprising that it has surfaced almost 30 years after it happened but a recording like this is always welcome.

This show was the band's debut show of 1990, after having performed a blastering version of "Rockhouse" at the Roy Orbison Tribute in Los Angeles just the day before. This concert boasts the live premiere of songs that were included in "Let's Go Faster" later that year. Other songs were intended and studio recorded for the album but for whatever the reason, they were not included in the commercial version of the long play.

It is also very curious that some of the songs played on this show were only played for a short stint in early 1990 and after that, definetely dropped off the set list. It is a pity because they were really good and they seemd to work live.

I am really enjoying this concert because, as many fans I guess, we were all waiting for a recording like this to show up at some point.

The CD tracking list goes as follows:

- Rumble In Brighton
- Let's Go Faster
- Too Hip, Gotta Go
- Sexy + 17
- That Someone Just Ain't You
- Something's Wrong With My Radio
- Stray Cat Strut
- Can't Stand Losing You
- Broken Man
- Fishnet Stockings
- Tight Black Leather
- Give It To Me
- Rock This Town / Secret Agent Man / Don't Be Cruel
- Struck By Lightning
- Let's Go Faster (reprise)
- Little Queenie
- Slip, Slip, Slippin' In
- Jeanie, Jeanie, Jeanie / Good Golly Miss Molly

LEE ROCKER - Chesterfield Cafe, Madrid, Spain (31 August 1997)


Hello everybody!
Well,well, well... this is how most of the rockabilly songs start, don't they?

Right, this is a very "well, well, well / oh my goodness my" kind of show. First, because a Lee Rocker live recording is a rarity by itself and secondly, because a show from the "No Cats" tour is even more rare and unique.

I need to start thanking Edu Despiadado of Spain for being so kind in providing me with a copy of this show. Gracias, amigo! Muchísimas gracias! Thank you!

This show comes from an in-house camera at the Chesterfield Cafe in Madrid, during the last of Lee's 10 show run at the Spanish capital, before heading for Moscow for another 10 show run at the Chesterfield Cafe.

This show seems to me that it did not finish with "Drink That Bottle Down", but the original DVD had some glitch and there is nothing beyond "Drink That Bottle", which, as you will listen, was cut in that in-house recording half-way through.

In any case, this is a fantastic show boasting some nice old classics, some stuff from Lee Rocker's Big Blue and of course, from "No Cats", album which had been released around that time. 

Also, there are two guests on this show. One of them is Josele Bulldog (from the Spanish band The Bulldogs). Lee invited Josele because when Lee was travelling from London to Madrid, the airline did not allow Lee to travel on board with his bass and thus, placing it in the hold of the plane. Unfortunatelly, when Lee's bass arrived in Madrid, the neck was broken. Josele helped Lee with a substitute stand-up bass as well as to find a luthier to fix his bass. Actually, Lee mentions something about breaking his bass before starting "Rumblin' Bass". The second guest (but first in order of appearance) seems to be a guy called John Mitchell. I don't understand exactly the name but I cannot find anything on Google, at least with the looks of the guitarist that appears in the video recording.

What else? I have been "forced" to remove most of the gaps in between songs so as to make the show suitable to an 80min CDR, but in all honesty, you are not missing anything. Just some tuning and the band introduction if I am correct.

And I guess this is all from my side... now it is time for you to download this great sounding recording and better concert! You have also a few audio clips to check it out while downloading.

The CD tracking list goes as follows:

- Miracle In Memphis
- Love Me Good
- That's All Right / Blue Moon Of Kentucky
- Goin' Down Hard
- Call Me The Rocker
- Congratulations
- Beautiful Delilah
- Screaming Hunger
- Into The Void
- Memphis Freeze
- Little Piece Of Your Love
- Find Another Man
- One Way Or Another
- Rumblin' Bass
- Katie Mae (feat. John Mitchell ??)
- Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby
- Blue Suede Shoes (feat. Josele Bulldog)
- Let's Play House
- Drink That Bottle Down
