DEE LANNON
And The Angels Sing
(On The Hill Records)
Skip was in the studio in 1997 with Dee to produce this 4 song EP. This is the bomb for Skip's rockabilly guitar style, which borders on Blue Note jazz. Howard Greene (drums) and Russell Scott (slap bass) round out the group. The record is available through On The Hill Records, a Japanese label, but Hepcat and other roots-rock mail order houses should be carrying it.

Everybody Digs Sammy Masters
(Dionysus)
This is the comeback disc by that rockabilly legend (who hadn't recorded rockabilly since 1957). Released by Dionysus Records March 20, 1998. SH produced and played guitar, Sammy sings, Ray Campi slapped the bass,Deke Dickerson, on rhythm guitar, and Howard Greene played snare drum. All live, all analog.

RAY CAMPI:
Train Rhythm Blue
(Dionysus)
This SH-produced Ray Campi disc is a real treat -- the bass-slappin' Texas rockabilly legend snaps, crackles, and bops through a program of rockabilly, honky-tonk and country rock like never before. Skip takes some serious guitar solos, and brought in a few other guitarists as well -- Dave Alvin, Tony Gilkyson, and Greg Leisz. D.J. Bonebrake on drums, and Stan Ridgway on harmonica. This is Ray Campi like you've never heard him before.
