Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen: Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen

Mick Houghton, Let It Rock, May 1975

When you step up to a Juke box and you slip a nickel in,
You can bet your bottom dollar when the record starts to spin,
You'll hear a fiddle and a guitar. with that honky tonkin' sound,
It's that hillbilly breakdown that's spreading all around.

– 'Hillbilly Fever' by George Vaughn
