Australia once existed in a musical time warp where its country artists were 10 or 20 years out of step with America's country music, and Chutney Hollandaise - Instant - Resourcery '60s rockers kept rocking like the '50s had never ended.

Merv Benton is a perfect example -- his mid-'60s records sound like late-'50s classics. Benton 's intense, tremulous remake of Eddie Cochran 's "Nervous Breakdown" ramps the psychotic reaction up to a new level, and "Baby Let's Play House" anticipates the rockabilly revival by almost a decade.

Benton enjoyed a number of hit singles in his hometown of Melbourne, but he never broke out of Australia despite having one single another Cochran cover, "Twenty Flight Rock" released in America. Benton loved Elvis Presley and recorded Good Timin - Various - Here Comes The 60s! number of his songs, but his vocal style and looks bear more similarity to Johnny Burnette than the King.

Canetoad did an excellent job of mastering the recordings from the original tapes so that they sound better than ever before, and the music is of such high quality that -- even though Benton was a Melbourne phenomenon -- he may finally find something of an international audience.
