Includes You're Barking Up The Wrong Tree, one of the greatest original rockers and one of the foremost songs of the rockabilly revival years! Hear these songs live when Don Woody appears at Hemsby, England, May 2010! Don Woddy says, -The fans seem to like the sound effects and that's partly what's kept the songs so popular all these years. They help me out now when I sing You're Barking Up The Wrong Tree by doing the 'barking'.
This CD collects together all the commercial recordings and surviving demos of a man who has had two brief but entertaining careers in rock 'n' roll. In the 1950s DonWoody was a DJ who wrote some distinctively good songs. He penned Brenda Lee's first hit. Then Decca persuaded him to have a shot at being a rockabilly singer himself. During the 1970s rockabilly revival he was 'rediscovered' and recently he has started performing again.
The CD booklet by Martin Hawkins tells the fascinating story of Don Woody, with unpublished interviews and rare photographs.
