One of the best of our new records, this CD marks the debut of a remarkable talent who belongs in the same category as BR5-49 and Big Sandy. James has been playing music in the Los Angeles area since he was ten years old. In the early Eighties he fronted the Rockin' Shadows, a rockabilly trio which produced one single on Dog House that was featured on Art Fein's 'L.A. Rockabilly.' James' brother, Ricky, was in the group that died alongside Rick Nelson in the plane crash. James is currently playing guitar for the Blasters and has an eight-piece Forties style swing band, Jimmy & The Gigolos. He also has a song on the critically acclaimed country album, 'A Town South Of Bakersfield.' His first solo album is a contemporary rockabilly classic. The songs include Blue Blue Day, Kermit Vale, Wild Places, and Barely Hanging On.
