Well my vision to it all.
I recently added these two song chords on the internet.
So play along but let me know if there's something wrong. (I just figured the songs out by ear and don't read music)

There probaby will be more added one of these days...

Shocked Wow! Really??? Holy crap, if you get it, that'd be great. For some reason, it's one of my fave BSO tunes. Anytime I hear a bunch of jazz chords, I get intimidated Laughing so I've never tried to figure it out.

...hahaha
Well like I said hold on!
I'm sure my chords of Hollywood Nocture is not excactly what it should be.
I do know some "jazz" chords but man, I'm no Setzer. I don't read music, so have to do it all by ear.
In those BSO songs there's always a point where I get stuck....lol
Like the horn sections where is no guitar heard.
How about "Town without pity"?
I got that one (in my head).
I could put that online too. It won't be today so be patient...haha.

Is it the Stray Cats version or the BSO?
I've been playing it recently (Cats version) and would be curious to see another transcription.

Cheers.

I do read music Patrick as I enjoy studying orchestral scores but in terms of live performance I'm not a good 'sight reader'.
Anyway, a mixture of both is good ....take the bits you prefer from each version, look forward to checking it out.
Good work with your other transcriptions, they're pretty much how I play them.

Ah cool, would still be great to check out if you ever do get the chance to scan it.
What's the name of the book please?

Cheers.

This should get you started, and I quote:
"
Sammy Davis City
This is a wonderful song co-written by the late, great, Joe Strummer along with Brian Setzer that features two acoustic guitars. I’m not sure if Brian and Joe each played diff. parts or if Brian overdubbed leads/rhythms. I don’t know of any commercially available sheet music for this song or video performance of it. It’s also been awhile since I’ve played this, and this walkthrough is solely from memory as I didn’t write it out at the time, so I may have some of the exact notes/chords wrong, but overall I think it is close. The song starts out in the key of E minor, as the opening chord is an Em9 played in open position (1st finger on B, 2nd fret, 5th string, 3rd finger on F#, 4th fret, 4th string, rest open strings). That is followed by an F#-G half-step 6th string bass-note walk leading to a G9 (or G9#11) chord followed by a C7 (or C9 or C7b9) chord and then a B7 (or B7b9 or B13) chord. This progression (Em9-G9-C7-B7) gets repeated once more and then things change. The song modulates to the key of G major (same key but diff. feel) at the lyric “You Hope for a Rainbow” where the chord is Am7. A D7 chord follows leading to a G major chord and finally Em. This progression (Am7-D7-G-Em) repeats a few times until the lyric “Non-running cars” where F#m7 and B7 are substituted for the last Em chord. This leads to the lyric “I’m feeling all the people dreaming” where I believe a static F#m13 chord with descending notes is played (not really sure about this chord). This resolves to an open E major chord which is a non-diatonic (not in the key) substitution for Em in the (Em-G9-C7-B7) progression that is played again (2x through). At the lyric “Nothing Pretentious” the progression (Am7-D7-G-Em) is played but C9 (Em7b5) is substituted for the Em chord. Then a bass note walks down from A to a G7b5 chord, followed by Gm7b5 and then F#m9 and B13 chords. At this point everything (chord progressions) are repeated from the first “I’m feeling all the people dreaming” lyric up to Gm7b5. Then at the lyric “Sammy Davis City” F#m7, G#m7, and A (or B7) chords are played in that order. An E major chord is played as the 1st solo begins. That solo plays over E and G chords which repeat and then ends with F#m9 and B13 chords. At this juncture the entire form is repeated and then the “Feeling all the people dreaming” lyric chords are played and finally the song ends on Em9 (5th position). Most of the chords are played between the open pos. and the 7th fret. Some of the extended chords are played by the 2nd guitar and are upper level extensions (i.e. 9ths, 13ths, etc.) of base chords (m7, 7, etc.). The solos follow the chord changes, but rely heavily on the E natural minor scale, G major scale, and the E minor blues scale.
