Sky-high energy leaps from every track on Billy Burnette's eponymous 1980 album for Columbia Records. Burnette had been recording for nearly two decades-since he was a child-but he'd never made a set that rocked as lethally hard as this one. Columbia unleashed the walloping LP with an eye-catching red-neon-on-black cover, the set giving Burnette his first hit single with the galloping "Don't Say No." Singer-songwriter-guitarist Dorsey William Burnette III is literally the 'Billy' in 'rockabilly.' Billy's father and uncle, Dorsey and Johnny Burnette, led the Memphis-based Rock 'n Roll Trio that helped pioneer the genre. The Trio combined the names of Billy and his cousin Rocky for the 1953 "Rockabilly Boogie"-making the term rockabilly a household word. Burnette is best known for his 1988-1995 stint with Fleetwood Mac and his songwriting for such artists as Rod Stewart, Ray Charles, Roy Orbison, Cher, Faith Hill, Gregg Allman, Tammy Wynette, Eddy Raven & Tanya Tucker. First time on CD.
