||Dulcie Younger and the Silencers
- Kitty, Kitty…Growl!
Dulcie Younger and the Silencers, including
Deke Dickerson, provide a trip in the Way Back Machine with Kitty, Kitty…Growl!
This is pure retro rockabilly goodness that could just as easily have been
recorded by Pat Smith or Sherry Davis at The Big D Jamboree.
There are two very refreshing things about
this album. The first is Dulcie Younger herself. It’s nice
to see some rockabetties in the male-dominated rockabilly world.
The other refreshing thing about this album is Dulcie Younger’s voice.
She has a powerful voice that is not overpowering. She doesn’t scream,
shout, or make pointless tips up and down a scale as has become the custom
among American female vocalists. She just sings.
And she is absolutely perfect for rockabilly.
She blends perfectly with the music of Deke Dickerson and the rest of the
Silencers. Even more than that though, she has perfected the rockabilly
stutter (in “Make Me Mad” she sings, “you can make me, muh-muh-make me…”)
and the hiccup that Buddy Holly made famous.
The songs on this album are very well done
but they do sort of run together. But that’s really the only downside
I can see on this album. And it’s not really a big downside.
I’d just like to see this band get a little more adventurous from one song
to the next. If you like hot rods and classic rockabilly, you’ll
really enjoy this album.
