Seldom has an album title rung as true as The Son of Rock and Roll. Rocky Burnette grew up around the music from day one. His father was rockabilly hell-raiser Johnny Burnette, whose mid-'50s sides for the Coral label as front man for the Memphis-based Rock 'n Roll Trio helped pioneer the genre. Uncle Dorsey Burnette, no slouch as a singer himself, was that ferocious crew's bass slapper. Thus, Rocky learned from the best in the business when it came to the fine art of rocking the house-priceless knowledge that defined his 1979 debut LP, which contained the Top Ten hit "Tired of Toein' the Line." For it's first ever CD release anywhere in the world, The Son of Rock and Roll has been remastered by Nick Robbins from the original master tapes, features new liner notes by Bill Dahl with exclusive commentary from Rocky Burnette, and adds two bonus tracks, including Rocky's previously unreleased cover of Sam Cooke's "Shake."
