In 2000 the band presented a tribute album in the memory of all rock 'n' roll superstars from the 50s and 60s titled "Cherished Memories" (Hot W-A-X LP 702). The album contains special tributes to Sreaming jay Hawkins, Hank Mizell, Carl Perkins, Vince Taylor, Warren Smith, Gene & Eddie, Johnny Kidd, Billy Fury, Screaming Lord Sutch and many more. The songs were recorded between 1985 and 2000 with different line-ups.
In 2003 Hot W-A-X released another collectors CD of the Town Rebels titled "Leopardman" with tracks recorded between 1988 and 1998. The Town Rebels play a wide variety of rock 'n' roll music, ranging from rockabilly, Teddy Boy music and surf.
