1 - BLAKE, TOMMY - KOOLIT - (7") 
SLEAZY


The name of Tommy Blake is inevitably associated in the history of rockabilly by the two singles he recorded for Sun Records, with songs like Flat Foot Sam and Sweetie Pie, although in the scarce 12 months that he remained with the company he recorded about 15 songs that would take more than 25 years to get out of the can. But before and after Sun Tommy also recorded good tracks, like the ones on this EP.Koolit, placed the side one of his very first single, was released on Buddy Records in 1956, being a great example of raw and gutted rockabilly, the same style that we find in $ F-olding Money $, released by Recco just a year after leaving Sun. The flip side opens with Cool Alligator, a wild and frantic cut that was recorded as acetate in 1958 and would remain unreleased until the mid-1980s. We complete the selection with the instrumental Mister Hoody, from his only session for RCA shortly before joining Sun, and where Carl Bailey Adams, regular guitarist of his band The Rhythm Rebels, really hits the bell.
