Dean Carter!

Here's one of Dean Carter's (aka Arlie Nevil) stunning 45's on his own "Milky Way" label. This came out in 1967, and every time I hear it, I shake my head. What was this guy on?! Talk about your strange influences. He had one foot in the 50's, the other foot in the 60's and another foot in the future somewhere!

Everyone's heard his version of Jailhouse Rock, right? Hell, it's been comped from here to eternity. But are you familiar with Rebel Woman?! This song is a total monster. Listen to that fuzz! Turn this up as loud as your speakers can take it and let that fab guitar wash over you...




  1. Rebel woman is great. I have it on one of the zillions of Nuggets/Pebbles/random other 60's garage comps i own. Funny though, you sais Jailhouse Rock has been "comped from here to eternity" and i don't already have it...
    Who knew..?
    It's a keeper- Thanks!

  2. i think most people know about dean carter thru the cramps who covered "his version" (at least that's what people always say). so jailhouse is on the born bad series as well as songs the cramps taught us.
