this track appears on both album, and is a killer rockabilly track:

that video features artwork from an earlier ace records compilation rockabilly party, which i also own... and is also a great album, worth digging the crates for.

while we're on the subject, this weekend i read the goon - which is set in the 40's, and owes a lot to film noire, jack kirby, sin city and of course will eisner.
very rockabilly it is too...
so a recommended read.

that would make an excellent avatar/profile picture...
