Captured live At the Rattlesnake-Saloon 
Johnny & The Roccos -
Rattlesnake S. RsR0104

Since the last two releases of Johnny & The Roccos were re-issues of earlier LPs, it was about time that Bob Fish would do something new on record. Well, it was worth the waiting, because this brand new LIVE double CD is everything Johnny & The Roccos ever promised to be: the best! Never mind me though, I'm wearing tainted glasses I guess, I've been a Roccos fan for over 20 years now, and they have always been great, live on stage on their own accord as well as backing the great American artists that toured Europe over the years. This is not the first time that the Roccos were captured live, but the first live recordings were only issued on tape by Sunjay in 1989 and, although it's a great gig, it never was widely available and most fans never even heard it. Here's your chance to catch up! It contains all the Roccos' favourites from "I Hate The Disco"  to "Shake Shack A Dooby"  and many all time classics, all played in that distinctive Bob Fish style. There's only one new song on the album, a fabulous rocking instrumental titled "Rocco Rumble", and, talking about great instrumentals, "Saturday Night At The Duckpond", previously only released on 45 in 1983, is there too!

Johnny & The Roccos are:
Bob Fish - Guitar, Vocals
Mickey Ginzel - Upright Bass
Michael Scott - Drums

Sleeve notes:
Ever since we've come to work down here in Munich we always especially enjoyed playing at the Rattlesnake Saloon. The wonderful atmosphere, the good crowd that always shows up at the gigs and the friendly staff made these gigs so special for us every time throughout the last 15 years. We are very proud that our new album was recorded live at the Rattlesnake Saloon on our most recent gig on April 06, 2000. We hope you will have as much fun listening to it as we had recording it! The live atmosphere is captured so well it makes you believe you're actually at the gig. Enjoy this CD - we'll see you next time at the Rattlesnake Saloon at Munich!  - Bob Fish -
