258 WADE CURTISS & THE RHYTHM ROCKERS - BRIGHT LIGHTS CD (258)
(Norton 258) Includes monster hit PUDDY CAT (MA-MEOW-MOW) -- the answer song to Surfin' Bird! Insane original 1950's/60's rock n' roll from the legendary handicapped rockabilly wild man Wade Curtiss. Despite the fact that he was wheelchair-bound and suffered from other debilitating ailments, Wade never stopped living life to its fullest. Not only was he a performing and recording artist -- he was also a wrestling manager with his own wrestling federation! This CD includes elusive 45's, radio shows (featuring early Buffalo, NY disc jockeys!) plus unissued live and studio insanity. The wildest! 75 minutes of music, live radio broadcasts, demos, rare releases! Giant 28-page booklet is rampacked with tales of Wade's colorful rock n' roll and wrestling careers. Includes unpublished photos of Wade with cohorts Link Wray, Hasil Adkins, Ersel Hickey and Tommy Lasorda! See Norton seven inch section for five 45 rpm singles issued from this CD!
