Rockabilly Legends, A tribute to my friends - Jerry Naylor
The Jerry Naylor Company

It's time to roll back the clock! So guys, comb your "duck-tails", slip on your leather jacket and Levi's. Gals, put on your Angora sweater, pleated skirt, and saddle shoes; hop in your "rag-top" with your "steady" and hit the road for Rockabilly Heaven. It's a musical journey you can't afford to miss!

Jerry Naylor, whose lead-singing voice energized "The Crickets" to continued world renown in the 1960's, revives classic Rockabilly Chart-Busters with the release of his new soundtrack CD, Tribute To My Friends; The Rockabilly Legends. Jerry Naylor revives a unique chapter in American Music History with this first-of-a-kind Rockabilly Revival Anthology. The 23-track CD is the audio soundtrack for the upcoming 3-hour Broadcast Television/ VHS & DVD Documentary, Tribute to the Rockabilly Legends, also produced by Nayco Entertainment Group.

Staying true to the old ways, that what things are all about, at least on this website, and that's exactly what Jerry does in this 50's anthology. Our old favourite songs recorded the old way sound as good as ever with Jerry Naylor's fantastic voice. No electronic synths used, as we hear all too often these days, just plain old rockabilly played by some of the best musicians in the business. Although I know all of these songs by heart, I enjoyed listening to this compilation very much, and I'm anxiously looking forward to watching the TV documentary.
