The Crewnecks - Rockin' Zombie
There's a lot to like about this song. It's pure early 60's late 50's novelty but the saxophone and the bass on this track are quite impressive. That's the one thing I really miss, the not-overdone-sax in rock and roll. Back in the day it was perfect. The sax would sometimes be in front of even the guitar, but then the 70s came and it completely disappeared aside from some light jazz solos. It seems like that badass warm guitar tone with piano backing and bop sax music is forever gone. Sure theres some revival bands but no one manages to actually do it the way it was done. But then again it makes listening to Chuck Berry that much better.
