I spoke to guitarist Skip Krevens about doing an album of songs from the dawn of Rock ‘n’ Roll. He suggested that an album like that should be recorded like the albums of that era, in which the band would set up in one room and record all the tunes live. He offered his longtime Rockabilly trio, The Eugene Chrysler Band, for the session. On a beautiful Saturday in October, the guys came over. We started recording at Noon and played through many songs, doing one or two takes of each song and then moving on. It was a lot of fun. Before evening fell, we had all these songs recorded. What is really amazing, is that all the instruments are just as they were recorded on that day. Not one overdub or ‘punch’ was needed, not even for the lead guitar, which is truly remarkable. These songs represent the roots out of which grew, the Bossa Nova Beatniks. We hope you have fun with this simultaneous sojourn into the past and future. – Tommy Numbers

Tommy Numbers & the Wildcats is a Bossa Nova Beatnik production. The Bossa Nova Beatniks have been performing and making CD's for about twenty years. Before the Bossa Nova Beatniks, I, bass player Tom Gould, used to play at CBGB in NYC and Hot Dog Beach in Hampton Bays with a 3 piece band that was firmly rooted in the music we heard the Beatles playing on bootleg records of them in pre-fame shows in Hamburg Germany. They were doing American Rock 'n' Roll, the likes of Little Richard, Carl Perkins and Elvis.
I have always wanted to revisit that music that was always such fun to play.

So, in between Bossa Nova Beatnik projects, I decided to take a musical stroll down memory lane and take me back to those evening beach parties on the ocean.

I was fortunate enough to have extremely talents friends who were able to set up in my studio on a Saturday afternoon last October and lay down all these songs in one afternoon.

I hear the spontaneity in every track. I can't thank the Eugene Chrysler Band enough for being so darn wonderful.
