In the end of October 2009 Goofin' Records had it's 25th Anniversary Party and released extremely limited editions of five 7" singles by five Finnish bands. The whole print was immediately sold out and the singles are already rare collector items. Now these singles have been made available on carton sleeve packed compilation CD.
Hal Peters is one of the best 50's sounding band and play it for as long as Goofin exists. They prove it once again with two killer covers of George Jones' How Come It and Elvis' I Dont Care If The Sun Dont Shine.
Next is Mystery Train, that plays this music since 1977, and offers here two solid originals. They favour a more 80's neo-rockabilly sound and if you dig The Polecats and Dave Phillips you'll sure to enjoy this two hot boppers.
Another one to appear in the 70's is Teddy Guitar, here backed by Cast Iron Arm. Great modern rock'n'roll. On the first track he sounds like a cross between Crazy Cavan and the Blasters while Buddy Holly's Learning The Game is softer but equally good.
Buck Jones and his Billyhowgs formed in 2008. Their two originals are very good too. "Long Lonesome Highway" is a solid rockabilly with a country flair while "Can You Feel Me Comin'" is a rock'n'roll with sax.
The newly formed (February 2009) B. Cupp & The Strapless Trio close the set with two covers from the catalog of Sid King and Glen Glenn.
A very good cd at a very attractive price. Happy Brithday Goofin'!
