Deke Dickerson: Echosonic Eldorado
“…A direct injection from the jugular vein of rockabilly at its most primal…”
Echosonic Eldorado is the first “all-rockabilly” album in Deke’s long career. For those who like the rock and roll side of Deke, you won’t be disappointed! Touching on the spirit (and classic recording styles) of Gene Vincent, the Johnny Burnette Trio, and countless Sun Studios late-night sessions, songs like “Little Innocent,” “Sneakin’ All Around,” and “Big Guitar” will satisfy the most discerning fan.
Special guest stars include legendary guitar slinger (and Rock and Roll Hall of Famer) Duane Eddy, Carl Sonny Leyland on piano, and recording engineer “Crazy” Joe Tritschler. The album’s title comes from the insanely rare Echosonic amplifier that Elvis’s guitarist Scotty Moore sold Deke, and the title track is an instrumental tribute to Moore that begins with an answering machine message left on Deke’s voicemail. (“The day I got a voicemail from Scotty Moore, I knew I had ‘made it,'” Deke states with pride.)
