Album Notes
I spoke to guitarist Skip Krevens about doing an album of songs from the dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He suggested that an album like that should be recorded like the albums of that era, in which the band would set up in one room and record all the tunes live. He offered his longtime Rockabilly trio, The Eugene Chrysler Band, for the session. On a beautiful Saturday in October, the guys came over. We started recording at Noon and played through many songs, doing one or two takes of each song and then moving on. It was a lot of fun. Before evening fell, we had all these songs recorded. What is really amazing, is that all the instruments are just as they were recorded on that day. Not one overdub or ‘punch’ was needed, not even for the lead guitar, which is truly remarkable. These songs represent the roots out of which grew, the Bossa Nova Beatniks. We hope you have fun with this simultaneous sojourn into the past and future. – Tommy Numbers

Dancing and Rock Out for Half an Hour on these Nine Delicious Covers
Zanger Tommy Numbers (aka Tom Gould) en zijn begeleidingsband ‘The Wildcats’ (aka rockabilly trio ‘The Eugene Chrysler Band’), zijnde gitarist Skip Krevens, contrabassist Eugene Chrysler en drummer Jeff ‘Junior Mintz’ Somerstein vormen samen het muzikale zijproject van Tom Gould, de frontman en leadzanger van de hier bij Rootstime welgekende en vaak gerecenseerde rock-‘n’rollformatie ‘The Bossa Nova Beatniks’ uit New York.
Op de plaat “Every Now And Then” brengt dit kwartet negen coverversies van welgekende rock’n’roll-klassiekers waarvan er drie geschreven werden door het legendarische duo Jerry Leiber (voor de muziek) en Mike Stoller (voor de teksten), zijnde de huiscomponisten van Elvis Presley. Zij schreven enkele decennia geleden de songs “Ruby Baby”, “Love Me” en “Bossa Nova Baby” die hits waren voor respectievelijk ‘The Drifters’ in 1956, Elvis Presley in 1956 en nog eens Elvis voor de soundtrack van de film ‘Fun In Acapulco” uit 1963.
Andere covers op deze live opgenomen plaat zijn versies van de door Elvis in het collectieve geheugen gezongen nummers “That’s Alright Mama” uit 1954, “Just Because” (zie video) van ‘The Shelton Brothers’ uit 1933 en ook terug te vinden op het songrepertoire van Elvis in 1956, “Sixteen Tons” van countryzanger Merle Travis uit 1946 en gezongen door Elvis in 1955 en “Little Sister” uit 1961.
Verder brengen ‘Tommy Numbers & The Wildcats’ ook nog een als de builenpest swingende rock’n’rollversie van “Slippin’ And Slidin’” van Little Richard uit 1956 en van “Honey Don’t” van Carl Perkins uit 1956. Zoals u zelf kunt vaststellen zijn er heel wat liedjes op deze cd die voor het eerst te horen waren in het gezegende jaar 1956, dus niet echt toevallig ook mijn eigen geboortejaar en dus eveneens bijzonder vruchtbaar voor onsterfelijke songs.
Verstand op nul, de broekspijpen opgetrokken en je beste beentjes voorzetten voor een half uurtje swingen en rocken op deze negen heerlijke covers die gebracht worden door ‘Bossa Nova Beatnik’-frontman Tom Gould / Tommy Numbers en zijn vrienden van ‘The Eugene Chrysler Band / The Wildcats’.

Rough translation:
Singer Tommy Numbers (aka Tom Gould) and his backing band 'The Wildcats' (aka rockabilly trio 'The Eugene Chrysler Band' ), guitarist Skip Krevens, bass player Eugene Chrysler and drummer Jeff Junior Mintz' Somerstein together form the musical zijproject of Tom Gould, the tells and lead singer of the here at Rootstime welgekende and often gerecenseerde rock- 'n'rollformatie 'The Bossa Nova Beatniks' in New York.

On the plate "Every Now And Then" brings this quartet of nine coverversies welgekende rock'n'roll classics, three of which were written by the legendary duo Jerry Leiber (for music) and Mike Stoller (for the texts), being the huiscomponisten of Elvis Presley. A few decades ago they wrote the songs "Ruby Baby", "Love Me" and "Bossa Nova Baby" which hits were respectively for 'The will meet many friendly Drifters there' in 1956, Elvis Presley Elvis in 1956 and again for the soundtrack of the movie "Fun In Acapulco" from 1963.

Other covers on this plate are recorded live versions of the by Elvis in the collective memory sang songs "That's Alright Mama" from 1954, "Just Because" (see video) of 'The Shelton Brothers' from 1933 and also back on the songrepertoire of Elvis in 1956, "into Sixteen Tons" of country singer Gretchen Merle Travis in 1946 and sung by Elvis in 1955 and "Little Sister" from 1961.

Further 'Tommy Numbers & The Wildcats' also a if the bubonic plague swinging rock'n'rollversie of "Slippin' And Slidin'" Little Richard in 1956 and of "Honey Don't" of Carl Perkins in 1956. As you can see there are many songs on this cd for the first time to hear the blessed were in 1956, so not really happen my own birth year and therefore also particularly fruitful for immortal songs.

Sense to zero, the trouser legs raised and your best beentjes continue dancing and rock out for half an hour on these nine delicious covers which are brought by 'Bossa Nova Beatnik' -tells Tom Gould / Tommy Numbers and his friends from 'The Eugene Chrysler Tire/The Wildcats'.

A Grinner for All..
This one does it for me. Nine toons - 8 from early rock-n-roll - stone guaranteed to get your toes tap-tappin' and your hips a-shakin'.... The idea is that Tommy Numbers (aka Tom Gould, of the Bossa Nova Beatniks) got a bunch o Wildcats (aka Skip Krevens and his Eugene Chrysler Band) together one Saturday afternoon in October - perfect Fall recording, right? - and they ripped this together, one or two takes on each song, everybody playing in the same room (WHAT?) and had this set of slapping' happy rock n bop toons in the can by suppertime. That's Alright Mama - Slippin' and Slidin' - Just Because - Sixteen Tons - Little Sister - Ruby Baby - Honey Don't - Love Me -- you know them all already, am I right? Meet 'em again in a slapping' happy set of new/old arrangements. And for dessert - the 9th tune is, uh, Bossa Nova Baby. Recheck Tommy Numbers' aka... Fun is all - that's enough for me.
