I give it only 4 stars however, because they are covers, and respect must be paid to those stars who came up with them in the first place. But Marshall Crenshaw, who's presently one of rock's premiere songwriters, ably tackles Buddy Holly's "Crying, Waiting, Hoping", while Brian Setzer (wayyy before swing came back in a big way) seems the natural choice to cover Eddy Cochran's "Summertime Blues".
Weight is lent by having Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love" performed by the man himself, but cover versions or not, the ripped-up, crumpled dollar-bills I used to pay for this album way back when was one of the best investments I ever made.
My complaint with this CD is that it seems to be put together cheaply. It's not a very long CD, there are no liner notes and the sound quality is thin. Hopefully someday, a remastered version with bonus tracks will replace this (in the way that Dirty Dancing has received updated treatments). If you can find it cheap, it's worth it.
