The name of the band is different but the musicians are familiar. Wendy LeBeau & her Beaus are another incarnation of the Flea Bops centered around Wendy who takes the lead vocal on all songs. But this is not the sole difference. The band made a conscious effort to sound different. Of course this is still first class rockabilly but they brought various element to their music like jazz chords progression (enhanced by Lance's superb brush work) on the Carter Family's Jealous Hearted Me or a barrelhouse piano on three tracks. Dave Moore of Wild Hare fame played acoustic guitar on two tracks too. It's a mix of covers (Sparkle Moore, Tommy lam, Bonnie Lou, Johnny Tyler, Big Mama Thornton) and originals, three penned by Wendy and one by the late Darren Lee Spears.
