“John Lewis Trio THE BILLY BANKS SESSIONS Atomic cowboy Records ACR003 **** Rockabilly has never sounded as good as this.The fifteen tunes found here are simply wonderful with every single one of them offering something new to audiences.Joining John Lewis here is Paul Woodmansey on doghouse slap bass with Billy Roberts featuring on drums. Together, they create a sound which is difficult to even match. One of the best songs here is Drunk. With an upbeat groove and pure rock and roll sound in the vein of Carl Perkins during his time at Sun Studios, if released then at the height of rock and roll it would have sold a countless number of copies. Having performed around the world and a highly recognised artist, as long as John continues to play music such as this that accolade won’t go away in a hurry. RH”
