This one is a rarity among rarities, I've had it here for a long while and just never got around to posting it......TRUST ME, this is a hard one to find, and I am happy to share it with you, complete with BONUS tracks......
Here's the story.....Holly Beth Vincent and her band
Holly & the Italians, released a TREMENEDOUS, hard rocking Ramones-ish album in the early 80's, it was GREAT and I have posted it on here at least once......it had KILLER tracks such as "I Wanna Go Home", "Tell That Girl To Shut Up", and my ultra-fave "Rock Against Romance".........this was/is a fine/wonderful album, a pure period piece, and if enough of you care, I'll dig it out and post it once again.
Anyway, there was just that ONE album......after that she released perhaps the most confusingly titled album in history, "Holly and the Italians" by Jolly Beth Vincent.......get it? this is NOT a Holly & the Italians album.........see what I mean?.....In fact, she ditched the punk/power pop stuff of the previous album for ROCKABILLY, and it is, absolutley, without question, WONDERFUL........I searched high and low for this album for a LONG time, and finally one of my Ohio homies hooked me up......DO NOT MISS THIS....this is a FANTASTIC album, one that not only do you wish to HEAR, but if you skip over, you may literally never get a chance to hear again........PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, you want to enjoy this fantasitc album.
