Nobody did infectious, good-old fashioned infectious rock 'n' roll like the legendary Hamilton group the Shakers. To celebrate their recent reunion shows, the band's come out with an amazing, self-titled, 2 CD collection featuring all their incredible songs.
Featuring current superstars Tim Gibbons, Dave Rave, Rick Andrew, and Claude DesRoches, the lads made some of the best music to come out the very late 70's and early to mid 80s (featuring early production work by international sensation Daniel Lanois). They mastered and perfected punk-like rockabilly and 50s style catchy rock. With unforgettable hits like Out the Door, Shake Some Action and many more, the foursome left their mark on the music scene.
As previously mentioned, this anthology includes all their tunes and an unreleased cover of Ain't Got No Sense by another legendary Hamilton band, Teenage Head.
If you wanna pick up this piece of rock history, you can go to Picks N Sticks in Hamilton and get yourself a copy.
