The Real John Lewis / Press

“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”

RH - Maverick Magazine

““It cannot escape your notice how so much of what is perfectly good, but considered out of fashion, is destroyed these days, by people too stupid and greedy to see what they had. John Lewis champions roots music, singing it in his own inimitable style, not letting it be thrown away and lost forever. His voice and the poignant setting of the last house on the Billy Banks Estate, could make a grown man cry. A grown man with any soul that is.” ”

Jerry Chatabox - Rockabilly Rave /Hot Rod Hayride

““Excellent stuff – as good as anything America has to offer” ”

Tony - Red Lick Records

“ “A absolute top notch album by one of the U.K finest Rockabilly Exports!!!” ”

Johnny Hop - UK R’n'R

““Lewis and his band have produced an album that’s an entertaining and heartfelt tribute to its location and to its source material, which proves that rockabilly has plenty to offer in the twenty-first century music scene.” ”

Dave Haslam - R2
