StrayCatsBuiltForSpeed

Built for Speed is an album from the American rockabilly band the Stray Cats and was the band’s first American album. It is essentially a compilation of 12 songs taken from the band’s first two initially UK-released albums: six from Stray Cats and five from Gonna Ball, plus the title track, “Built for Speed”, which had not previously been released in the UK. It was the most successful record for the band, with the videos for songs such as “Rock This Town” and “Stray Cat Strut” reaching MTV regular rotation status. The title track can also be heard in the 1984 film “Surf II”. Read more at Wikipedia: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Built_for_Speed
