"A detailed, delightful book on the true nature and artistry of rockabilly... Naturally Elvis gets his own chapter, though ... Morris gets around to mentioning most everyone... Go Cat Go! is the kind of album-listening companion that -- to borrow rockabilly lingo -- flat out gets it." The Commercial Appeal (Memphis) "The definitive study of rockabilly music... A well-researched, insightful, and caring tribute to an oft-overlooked musical genre that was vital to the evolution of popular music and culture in the Fifties." Shane K. Bernard, Louisiana History "It's the first thing I would suggest to anyone who wanted to know what rockabilliy music was all about... A reasonable, well-balanced, and non-dogmatic account of a musical genre that has become a cult to many of its followers. Morrison's book should make rockabilly more accessible to those with broad interests in grassroots American music." David Evans, Memphis State UniversityVom Verlag:
