Brian Setzer - Rockin' By Myself - Live Deluxe (1993)

This is the official proof that this guy is one of the greatest guitar players that ever lived. This guy is alone in front of a crowd of Japanese people (which means a lot of people), playing a guitar and singing, and somehow everyone in the crowd is boppin'. This guy has such a natural rhythm that even when he goes into a solo you still can't stop headbanging. A big ol' Gretsch, an acoustic guitar and a banjo is all he uses, except for a couple of covers he performs absolutely beautifully with his brother Gary Setzer (who is a pretty decent guitarist himself, but it is understood that he is there to give Brian his back-up, and nothing more). A great live album, especially if you play some guitar. Includes great covers to alot of Rock N Roll classics like I Fought the Law, Bye Bye Love, Be-Bop-A-Lula, along with some Elvis and Eddie Cochran tunes, plus of course, the Stray Cats' and Setzer's old favs.
