Lately this song's a hype among neo-Rockabilly acts: Tag-Alongs, Some Like It Hot, Black Cat Trio, El Rio Trio, Jailbirds, Cyclones, Spunyboys, Vargas Brothers, Betty Boop Lovers... There's also an unrelated eponymous classical orchestral composition by Alfred Reed (1985), a minimal/ambient El Camino Real by William Basinski (2007), also different and the same goes for the New Christy Minstrel song (1964) crediting Randy Sparks.
