On Shaky ground

I heard this on the radio this afternoon and was reminded what a great version of this song Shakin' Stevens did. It's got to be one of the best UK rock 'n' roll records ever.

Before he became a woolly sweater-wearing '80s joke, Shaky played Elvis in the West End and he and his band the Sunsets were a hardcore, hard-touring rockin' band. I saw them at the Royalty in Southgate. They even supported the Stones in the early '70s.

Forget the '80s and listen to the guitar solos on this track... and forgive Shaky his sins!
