• Sid KING and The Five Strings - Sag, Drag, and Fall - Singles As & Bs 1954-1961 Plus

When the first Rockabilly Revival of the 1970s hit Europe, the exciting North Texas sound of Sid King and the Five Strings led the charge and kept the dance floors busy with sure shots like 'Sag, Drag And Fall', 'Purr, Kitty, Purr' and 'Blue Suede Shoes'.

Over 40 years later, those great 1950s singles are still keeping the dance floors busy everywhere that great rockabilly is played. And they're all here for maximum foot satisfaction in this great new Jasmine collection, still sounding as fresh as the day they were recorded.

The A and B of every single that Sid and the Strings released between 1954 and 1961 can be found on this disc, along with some equally strong tracks that inexplicably failed to make the cut when they were recorded in the 1950s.

An 'early starter' who made these records at a young age, Sid is one of the few acts of his era who is still out there performing these great sides - in fact, he's coming to Europe again in 2019.

Remastered as always from the finest available sources. A rockin' good time is guaranteed for all!
