Wait a minute.... Robert Gordon... Wasn't "Red Hot" done by Billy Lee Riley and the original by Billy Emerson? Both on Sun... Or is this another song with the same name?

Robert Gordon revived it in the 80's among other classics. He's good! I have all his LPs. Better singer than Shaky.

Dear Mystery Rider, What country do you come from? Or perhaps you were drunk when you posted? Or perhaps you learned English from reading 'Elvis Monthly'? (Or how I miss The Phantom...but that will all change when I get the sights fxed on my rifle.) Anyway, the words your mangled in your post are: STEREO / ROCKBILLY BOOGIE / BURNETTE TRIO. Robert Gordon is an immense talent and Chris Spedding an awesome guitarist. Don't know why the news story here listed him as a member of Roxy Music - he isn't. He has played with the group and also works on some of Bryan Ferry's solo projects. But he's always worked with lots of different people and records as a solo act. He had a big hit in 1975 with 'Motor Bikin''. I can't wait to hear this new album. I just know it's gonna rock!

Robert Godon is an excellent "Elvisy" Singer. I'm looking forward to this album.

They recorded the album in Nashville last November, following Robert & Chris reunion tour (September 2006), after 13 years of separate work. I absolutely agree about the great talent of Mr. Gordon and, in my opinion, Robert & Chris are a fantastic combination. You can watch clips from recent shows looking for 'The Fool Robert Gordon' in YOUTUBE.

to Harvey...All i said was he (Robert Gordon) brought these songs Red Hot Billy Riley's verson updated and Rock-a-billy Boggie by Johnny Burnett Trio and they were done over by Robert Gordon in a new light and in Stereo and people should buy it. And if i managed to mangle a word or two forgive me after all, not all of us are as smart as Harvey Alexander.
