[PROMO] The Tommy Numbers & the Wildcats – Just Because (Rock ‘n’ Roll / Rockabilly)

I spoke to guitarist Skip Krevens about doing an album of songs from the dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He suggested that an album like that should be recorded like the albums of that era, in which the band would set up in one room and record all the tunes live. He offered his longtime Rockabilly trio, The Eugene Chrysler Band, for the session. On a beautiful Saturday in October, the guys came over. We started recording at Noon and played through many songs, doing one or two takes of each song and then moving on. It was a lot of fun. Before evening fell, we had all these songs recorded. What is really amazing, is that all the instruments are just as they were recorded on that day. Not one overdub or ‘punch’ was needed, not even for the lead guitar, which is truly remarkable. These songs represent the roots out of which grew, the Bossa Nova Beatniks. We hope you have fun with this simultaneous sojourn into the past and future. – Tommy Numbers
