Rockin' Song of the Week No. 62 - Walkin the Dog by Rachael Stokes

Walkin the Dog - Rachael Stokes

I must confess, I'd never heard of Rachael Stokes until two minutes ago. Just caught her by accident on youTube, but have a listen to this. From what I can gather she works with The Rocksteadys who classify themselves as a Ska/Rocksteady group from Las Vegas. Whatever name you give their style, on this cover of Webb Pierce's Walkin' The Dog they're nothing but flat-out rockabilly. She's got a fine voice, but it's the guitarist that had me going nuts. Take a listen, he'll blow your top. I've also added her equally stunning cover of Janis Martin's My Boy Elvis.
