Stray Cats Live Recording Another “High Note” For Eagle Rock, Montreux Sounds

Eagle Rock Entertainment and Montreux Sounds have churned out some of the year’s best live recordings ever since the two groups originally formed their partnership.  Now, with the release of Stray Cats: Live at Montreux 1981, the two companies have released another impressive piece of history from the history of the famed music festival. 

Stray Cats: Live at Montreux 1981 presents Brian Setzer and his brothers in the Stray Cats in one of the trio’s most iconic performances.  As renowned as the Montreux Festival is, it is a bold statement for the Stray Cats to have been invited to perform.  It was a statement of belief not only in the band, but also in the old school rockabilly style sound.  Setzer and company made festival founder Claude Nobs and the audience more than proud with this performance, as the group kept the audience moving from start to finish.  Even when the band finished its main set with its classic hit, ‘Rock This Town’, the audiences still wanted more.  And the band gave the audience exactly what it wanted.  For that matter, it gave the audience what it wanted four more times.  The band came back for four encores, as that’s exactly what the audience wanted.  Cheers filled the room throughout the performance, even after Setzer and band mates Lee Rocker and Slim Jim Phantom finally left the stage for the last time.

The band’s set was just one part of the overall success of this recording.  That the footage survived for over three decades is impressive in itself.  It will bring back a sense of nostalgia for fans who remember this iconic band from its heyday, and will introduce new audiences to one of the most important bands in the rebirth of the rockabilly style.  Seeing the old recording style itself is the video equivalent to listening to a record on vinyl.  It’s simply a wonderful feeling.  And it’s a feeling that any rockabilly fan or music fan in general can enjoy any time they want now that this release is available now both in stores and online.  It can be ordered online direct via the Eagle Rock Entertainment website, http://www.eagle-rock.com.
