I don't own anything rare or collectable so mine is the Rumble in Brixton cd. I had bought the black cover 'Best of The Stray Cats' but, with the exception of Rock This Town, the studio recordings didn't do much for me. I saw the Rumble in Brixton in HMV and bought it on the off chance. Listening to it on the train home I was blown away by the power and 'rockabilly-ness' that seemed to be a bit lacking on the studio recordings. That was the moment that I 'got' Brian Setzer and Stray Cats and I've been a fan ever since!

Haven't taken the time out to figure out how to host an image, but this Silver Record Award (UK 60,000 copies sold) for "Stray Cats" (1981) in my avatar is one of my favorite treasures. Kind of fun, especially if you consider that this predates their first Gold Record award (which I also have). This particular award was presented to Simon Potts, head of A&R who signed the band to Arista Records.................

I'll have to take a photo at some point.. But it's probably a couple of Brian's picks from the 2007 Cats reunion tour that Tommy mailed to me.

I still wear the shirt from that gig. It's worrrrnnnn out...
