Dorsey Burnette: Here and Now (Capitol 11094)

Gene Sculatti, Fusion, November 1972

REMEMBER THE Burnette Brothers? Johnny and Dorsey, that is, out of Memphis in the Fifties doing 'The Train Kept A-Rollin'' and mucho ace rockabilly? No? How about when they went solo in the early Sixties with great Liberty strings 'n' things pop fare like 'Dreamin'' and 'You're Sixteen' for Johnny and 'Tall Oak Tree' and the devastating 'Hey Little One' for Dorsey?
