  • There is much more to Marvin Rainwater than his awful attempt at rockabilly ("Whole Lotta Woman", "Hot and Cold") and "Gonna Find Me a Bluebird". "My Brand of Blues", "Get Off the Stool", "So You Think You've Got Troubles", "Where Do We Go from Here" and "Why Did You Have to Go and Leave Me" are all great and should be up there among his best. "Korea's Mountain Northland", "Burning Bridges" and "Cold Woman" aren't far behind. There are several more that I'd recommend. Seriously... go buy his box set. That is a better way to discover the many gems he recorded than that lame rockabilly compilation. Nothing against rockabilly because I like some of it, but he wasn't good at it.
