Welcome to Mellow's Log Cabin. This blog's purpose is to supply information on a diversity of American southern music - ranging from country, blues, old-time and folk to R&B, rock'n'roll and rockabilly. I regularly present my research results about artists, labels, shows and also give guest writers a chance to publish their texts here on occasion.

Volume 3 review
The disc kicks off with the powerful performance of a song called "You Sure Know What You're Doin'," followed by a couple of more solid rockabilly ouings. "Could It Be" and "Please Stop" head more into a pop-rock'n'roll sound direction, the latter being reminiscent of Elvis Presley's late 1950s and early 1960s soft pop songs. Probably the best song is "Pill Poppin' Papa," a raw and stomping number with a great lead guitar.
"Volume 3" is a rockabilly album full of power, energy, and rhythm. Highly recommended to every rockabilly enthusiast. In my opinion, there could have been a bit more variety in the instrumentation and arrangements. A piano here or an acoustic guitar there would have completed the album but that's my personal taste. However, all songs are solid and at least good performances with Danny Bartley playing always an agressive and outstanding lead guitar. "Volume 3" - an exemplar of modern rockabilly.
