Racin' The Devil is Lee Rocker's most diverse album yet, and a roots music fan's dream come true. The CD features twelve songs of scorching rockabilly, roadhouse romps and straight-ahead, old-school rock 'n' roll, highlighted by nine originals that are by far the strongest of his career. And his reinventions of The Stray Cats mega-hit "Rock This Town" and his first post-Cats band Phantom, Rocker & Slick's "Running From The Hounds" are foot-stomping and ecstatic statements of pure joy.

Racin' The Devil is full of terrific songwriting, great playing and super-energized performances. Anyone who loves raw, rocking music, be it blues, rockabilly, or straight ahead rock 'n' roll has got to love this album.

From garage rockers and deeply textured roots anthems to the rockabilly sounds he helped reinvent, the album is a rich piece of Americana, as timeless and unique as the music Rocker fell in love with as a youngster. The originals bite with a powerful snap, the covers become his personal statements, and the playing is first-rate, raucous, rocking and fun.

Muze PNote This classy set of rockabilly features the ex-Stray Cats bassist, ably supported by a hard-rocking band that includes a couple of incendiary guitarists in Buzz Campbell and Brophy Dale, both heard to good effect on the instrumental "Swing This." Rocker revamps the Stray Cats' "Rock This Town" as a minor-key tour-de-force, while "Running From the Hounds," featuring Dale's masterly slide guitar, is a good-time, bluesy romp.
