Today the Internet offers infinite possibilities to investigate. In 1980 these possibilities were not available. This is the reason why I didn’t knew for long years that today’s song as a classic tune. Stiff records released in this year a record by a band called Joe ‘King’ Carrasco and the Crowns. I got this record just because of it’s cover. This band was from Texas and played a mixture of punk styled rock and roll with a great influence of tex-mex music. I loved this band and their party-styled sound. One of the tracks I listened often was Party Doll not knowing that this was a cover by an another Texas-based musician. Buddy Knox is another great artist of the rockabilly decade. I think the story of Joe ‘King’ Carrasco will be told during the next weeks.
