Welcome to another edition of Dynamite Rock; this one being on a day we hold close to our hearts, Halloween. I thought I'd bring the spirit of the season with a haunting tale about our favorite creature of the night "Dracula," by the Zane Brothers. It falls somewhere between garage rock and doo-wop, definitely for fans of artists like Roky Erickson. Very little is known about these brethren of the dark, so Happy Haunting, and don't forget to take it with you.

I'm back once more to lay a little rock n roll on you. Today we're doin a little number by Gene McKown called, "Rock-A-Billy Rhythm." McKown was a Kansas City man, who had two hits in '58 (this, along with, "My Dream Girl."), but vanished until the 80's when returned with "Ghost Memories" b/w "Incidentally." Other than that, the man has a small handful of singles, but largely remains a mystery. Enjoy this bit of toe tapping, and don't forget to take it with you.

Bobby Roberts - Cravin
I'm diggin deep for another rarity this week, as I bring more rockabilly flavor with Bobby Roberts' "Cravin'." Originally released in 1958 on Hut records, "Cravin'" has been an elusive number until resurfacing on newer compilations such as "Ultra Rare Rockabilly Vol 7." Don't forget to take it with you.

Mike Page - Long Black Shiny Car
Today I'm leaving you a very rare slice of rockabilly indeed. This amazing track by Mike Page, "Long Black Shiny Car," is some vintage underground from the 60's, but it gained popularity from being a popular number to cover. Mostly known for the 80's version by UK rockabilly revivalists, Restless, a quick stroll around the internet shows that "Long Black Shiny Car," has become a standard for crooners of all kinds. Take it for a spin yourself.
