The above was re-printed from Rockabilly Hall Of Fame site. Billy Lee Riley’s Flyin’ Saucers Rock and Roll was one of the first rockabilly 45’s I ever heard, it totally changed my life.
Some of his other classic Sun 45’s were Red Hot (this is an alternate take), and his first record, one of my very favorites– Rock With Me Baby b/w Trouble Bound. I saw him play at the Circle Bar Christmas Party in 2003 and he was incredible. If anyone of these old guys had the whole package to make it, it was Billy Lee Riley, unfortunately Sam Phillips only had the money to promote a couple of artists, so he chose Carl Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis, leaving Riley on the back burner. He managed to stay in music as a session man, then gradually staged a comeback and was a big draw on the international rockabilly circuit. Give the poor fella a hand.
