This is a great, 14 song collection from the original writer of the "Hot Rod Lincoln", Charlie Ryan.
The song "Hot Rod Lincoln" was written by Charlie Ryan in the late 1950's and first hit Billboard's top 40 charts with his release of the song in 1960 where it peaked at #33. Singer Johnny Bond also did a take on the song and it peaked at #26. Since then, the song has become a part of the hot rod culture in the United States and abroad. Countless covers of the song have been done including releases by Commander Cody and Asleep at the Wheel. The song has also been featured in movies such as the "Beverly Hillbilies" and on dozens of television shows.
This CD features Charlie's version of his famous song as well as 13 other great country/rockabilly tunes. Charlie is a rockabilly icon and hall of fame inductee. If you like old country/rockabilly/swing then you'll love this album!
