Today's Tune: "I Won't Stand In Your Way"
By Stray Cats

Happy Birthday to Brian Setzer! Setzer, an American musician and songwriter, is most widely known for his time playing guitar and singing for Stray Cats, a rockabilly band. They had quite a few hits along the way.

Brian was a member of Bloodless Pharaohs and Brian Setzer & The Tomcats before the Stray Cats. He also has several solo releases, most of his latest being under the name of The Brian Setzer Orchestra.

For this 'Today's Tune', the featured song is a slow one called "I Won't Stand In Your Way" via Stray Cats. It's a track that they originally released on their third album, 'Rant N' Rave With The Stray Cats' (1983 - No CD in USA). It was also released in the USA as the A side of a 7" vinyl single in 1983, along with an A cappella version on the B side.
