Deke Dickerson - Echosonic Eldorado 2013

When it comes to Deke Dickerson  you just know that this man delivers,from rock n roll,surf to country and rockabilly he has done it all(and quite well I may add). You could say he has been the flag bearer of American roots music.I'm guessing he has well over 30 albums out now if you count the groups he has been in (Dave and Deke Combo,The Go-Nuts,The Untamed Youth , Blind Rage&Violence and Venturesmania) .Oh and he just released an album with Nikki Hill. Deke has always had the ability to surprise and that brings us to"Echosonic Eldorado" believe it or not: this is his first all rockabilly album and it's pretty damn solid .Coming in with 14 toe tapping  rockin' tunes,this is one very satisfying disc.There is also some pretty kool guest on the album: Duane Eddy, "Crazy" Joe Tritschler and Carl Sonny Leyland  all which add some muscle to the proceedings. Highlights include: "Bop Wax","Little Innocent","Cut Loose" and "Big Guitar".  
    Echosonic Eldorado is a must for fans of Deke Dickerson  but it also a pretty good rockabilly album that deserves to be heard. Recommended
