Eagle Vision 2012
When the Stray Cats rolled into Montreux in July 1981 they were one of the hottest
properties around. They had 3 hit singles and a UK top 10 album already under their
belts along with a string of headlining concerts, all of which had come since their
relocation from New York to London in 1980. The band’s combination of original songs
and rockabilly classics with a punk attitude and style had caught the moment to
perfection. Added to this were their considerable musical accomplishments and knack
for songwriting. All in all it was a heady concoction and the crowd in Montreux
reacted with near hysterical excitement, something rarely seen in what is usually a
polite and reserved audience. This is the Stray Cats at their peak. Simply
First ever DVD release of Stray Cats material from their heyday in the early
eighties. Features their huge hit singles “Stray Cat Strut”, “Rock This Town” and
“Runaway Boys” plus many other classic tracks.
Featuring, of course, the line-up of Brian Setzer (guitar & vocals); Lee Rocker
(upright bass & vocals); Slim Jim Phantom (drums); this is the Stray Cats at their peak. Simply unmissable.
