Here's a nice photo of a young Ray Campi, and a couple songs from around the same time, 1957. Most people my age know him primarily from his revived career in the late seventies and early eighties, around the time he was on Rollin' Rock Records. He'd occasionally play in punk venues with the Rockabilly Rebels. Man, that was a gas. Punk rock, rockabilly and reggae were the big three among my crowd, and Campi was the biggest rockabilly guy, due in no small part to the fact that he was one of very few rockabilly OGs that you could still go see.
