Released:
Label: Geffen
Under 25 minutes -- short enough to count as an EP by 1983 critics' poll rules, but the length of many "albums" from the era it pays tribute to -- this toss-off is ostensibly a rockabilly move: faux Stray Cats to Trans' faux Devo. But most of its proto-Honeydrippers bop-bop/doo-wah/cashawotta backup is more generic-Happy Days/Pat Boone than that, and the four black artists white-washed weren't 'billies either (though at least Junior Parker's "Mystery Train" comes via Elvis and Greil Marcus). As for originals, Neil dedicates "Payola Blues" to Alan Freed. And "Kinda Fonda Wonda" is kinda bawdy.
