Duane Eddy cut a new album recently and started touring again after many years of doing just studio work. Still most remembered for his work on Jamie Records, he plays this music at all his gigs and glories in the recognition and accolades he gets from the era and songs on this CD.
When Duane Eddy appeared recently at the Ponderosa Stomp, he was told to play his music like the originals. And here they are. This culmination of his period on Jamie Records includes hits like "Pepe," "Drivin' Home" and "Gidget Goes Hawaiian." The English version of the original album also had "Ring of Fire," "The Avenger" and "Londonderry Aire" ("Danny Boy"), all of which are also in this CD. Bonus tracks include previously unreleased versions of these songs plus singles by Mirriam Johnson, whom Duane produced and married at the time of this album.
