Robert Gordon's 1977/'78 Private Stock LPs with the legendary Link Wray were the best rockabilly revival records because they created something new from the ashes of rockabilly. It wasn't revivalism to either of them — it was new music with all the energy and edginess of new music, rooted in rockabilly's timeless truths. During the sessions for the second LP, Bruce Springsteen contributed a song, "Fire," that he'd written for Elvis. He played piano on the session, too.

This was the age of Punk and New Wave, and Robert's music not only made believers of those who didn't think any great records had been made since 1957, but made converts of kids who were grooving to Blondie, the Ramones, and the other big acts of the time. Great music will do that! Both Robert Gordon-Link Wray LPs contain one bonus song.
