A reissue of our acclaimed LP album, Rockin' On The Radio, which has been unavailable for many years, plus previously unissued and remastered material from radio shows, live performances and studio sessions. A real treat for Five Strings fans and those interested in the development of rockabilly from western swing, country and rhythm & blues. Sid & the Strings put it all in the pot and others like that Elvis boy reaped the benefits. Detailed notes by Hank Taylor and many photographs.
