Rock n Roll Hot Legs/Jack On The Rocks - Michael Ubaldini - Mystery Train Sessions
Label: Raucous Records - RAUCD 197 • Format: CD Album • Country: Europe • Genre: Rock • Style: Rockabilly
Michael Ubaldini is far from a household name -- so resurrecting recordings that he made over a decade ago might not sound like a particularly promising endeavor. This disc, however, holds far more interest than just to Stray Cat completists.
The first two tracks -- "Don't Say Goodbye" and "Scratch My Back" -- are rugged rockabilly numbers that don't feel like museum pieces. It's on the next two songs that he shows his promise of being something more than a rockabilly revivalist. Both "Mardi Gras" and "Jean Harlow" break out of the rockabilly shell and bloom into muscular roots rock.
The raspy-voiced Ubaldiniin fact, sounds like an East Coast roots rocker, but in actuality he is a popular member of the same Orange Country, CA, roots music scene that also spawned Mike Ness and Social Distortion. The rest of disc alternates between more rockabilly moves and classic rock-inspired tunes.
Another song that stands out -- both due to its quality and for being the disc's sole acoustic number -- is "Only Passin' Through," which foreshadows Green Day 's spare turn on "Good Riddance Time of Your Life.
