RIP - Jeff Spencer (Memphis Rockabilly Band)

I've been meaning to do a tribute to the great Jeff Spencer who passed away recently. Jeff was the lead singer of the Memphis Rockabilly Band. I first became aware of them in the 80's when I picked up the Bop´n Roll Party album on Big Beat (I think). Thye had a great rockin' sound and although I find the bands name a bit corny, their music is brilliant. Below is a clip from the 1982 Bop´n Roll Party tv show which also featured Jack Scott, Sonny Fisher and Crazy Cavan.
