Abattoir Dogs Rock N Roll Weirdness

Now and again the compilation freebies given away with the music mags can throw up some real goodies and for me this was one is bang on. This compilation was give away with the now defunct Vox magazine in 1995 . A sort of imaginary soundtrack in tribute to Quentin Tarintino , I think Pulp Fiction had just come out at the time ,and there isn't a duff track on it . All tracks were licensed by Ace records so there is a strong slant to some brilliant rockabilly along with cajun , surf,Link Wray,The Cramps,garage, and a little country.There is a bit of Tarantino/gangster like narrative between some tracks which probably seemed like a good idea at the time but these can be safely skipped or deleted . Try here .

Link Wray - Deuces Wild
Johnny Allen - The Promised Land
Richard Berry - Big Break
John Lee Hooker - Hoogie Boogie
The Run-A-Ways - Night Creature
The Phantom Chords - Screaming Kid
Sparkle Moore - Flower Of M Hart
The Embers - I Waked All Nght
Link Wray - The Wild One
The Cramps - Everything Goes
The Gladiolas - Little Darlin'
Elmore James - Can't Sop Lovin' You
Margaret Lewis - Reconsider Me
The Fatback Band - (Are You Ready) Do The Bus Stop
Tommy McLain - Sweet dreams
