Rock-A-Way Lonesome Moon

by The Roy Kay Trio

Using rockabilly legends like Johnny Burnette, Charlie Feathers, and Carl Perkins as starting points, the Roy Kay Trio are a drumless rockabilly band that manages to be perfectly rhythmic with just an acoustic guitar, an electric one, and an upright bass.

Give me 6 stars and I'll give them!!!!!!
It's the third album by this Seattle drumless trio (two guitars and a bass). The previous ones has been respectivly produced by Deke Dickerson and Ashley Kingman. For this one they went to Germany and choose Axel Praefcke (Ike & The Capers) as co-producer. All but three songs are originals mostly written by Roy. Robin (bass) and Mike (guitar) contribute one song each. About the music there’s no big departure from the previous albums, you’ll find the same blend of rockabilly (“My Rockin’ Heart”, “Move On”), hillbilly boogie (“She Tracked Me Down” has backing vocals very similar to Webb Pierce’s Teenage Boogie), beautiful ballads (“I’ve Lost”, “Untie This Strings”) but this time they added a touch of western swing with “Cadillac In Model A” and its jazzy chords. Axel did a very good job producing this record and gave it a sound of its own. I won’t go more into details, but if you want to hear a well produced album, good songwriting, beautiful harmonies this one is for you. Another (the third !!!!) future classic album from Roy and the boy. And as usual with this band, the cover and the booklet are very well designed.


Excellent CD!
I was curious about this CD because the band is a drummerless rockabilly trio, much like Johnny Cash and the Tennesee Two. Like them, and like a good bluegrass band, this band rocks without a drummer. The guitar work is tasteful, the vocals first rate and the vibe is unforgettable. You can really hear rockabilly's roots in old time country music on this CD.

Carl M. Nielsen

Pure rockabilly the way it was played in the early days, when Elvis, Scotty and Bill were setting the standards. An album for thrue purists. No compromising! But further more a distinctine, personal style. Not a copy. Smoth guitar-sounds and a bit of western swing added to the Sun-thing. On top of it all a collection of great and catchy songs, that fits right in the ear. Most of the up-tempo stuff got the you-can't-sit-still-drive and punch right in. Some of the more emotional tunes sure finds the feeling of young love, heartbreack, impossible dreams and sleepless nights. The title-track is a perfect combination of both. A sure smash! But there are many other great tunes to find here. It's all about good music and no fancy smart-kicking. An album thats keeps on the road, without any turns or phony freak-outs.This is as pure and straight ahead as it gets!


Tight & authentic sound!
Tight & authentic sound! Great album from beginning to end - A real winner!

One of the best recordings I've heard in a long time !! Super vocals and harmony singing - strong original tunes and excellent musicianship.
