About "EARLY RECORDINGS": Rick Sikes and the Rhythm Rebels traveled the roads of Texas,
Oklahoma, New Mexico and California, playing their own brand of music.
It was the early beginning of "outlaw" music. On these 45 rpm
records from the 1960's, you will hear the smooth voice of Rick Sikes
singing his ballads. In contrast, his brother, Bobby Sikes
(Track 10), takes you back to the birth of rockabilly music. A
song penned by Rick and sung by Mark Scott (Track 9) depicts the
hopelessness of a convict on death row. "Den Of Sin" (Track 3)
was a #1 hit in Denmark while "Valley Of Tears" (Track 2) charted in
California. It was a time when Texas honky-tonk music ruled!
