Sonny Burgess

Tune in and rock the blues with two guitar men who do it with great authority. First up is Arkansas wild man and original Sun Records rockabilly Sonny Burgess who tore it up, playing his hits "We Wanna Boogie," "Red-Headed Woman" and others well into his eighties, before passing away last month. And hear a live set from the late great New Orleans bluesman and human jukebox Snooks Eaglin, recorded in 2007 at his home base, the famous Rock 'N' Bowl nightclub, where one can do either of those, or both, at the same time.

One of the key styles of early rock n roll, Rockabilly combined rock and blues with country, or "hillbilly", music. Rockabilly artists tended to cultivate a wild, "bad boy" image. Some people consider Rockabilly artists to be rock's first punks. Although there have been many revivals throughout the years, we will focus on the original Rockabilly movement, which only lasted from about 1956 to 1960.
