Sleepy is still around playin shows (his website says more than 200 a year) so book him for yr next barbecue or wedding. Best known for his low voice and rockabilly style (and half-closed eyelids), I learned from the Bob Dylan Theme Time radio show that he was also a bit of a B-horror movie star, usually cast as the monster/double due to his tremendous height. This song, on Plantation Records, is chuggin the whole way through, more of a mix tape song than a live DJ track, but there is something about a "diesel-dockin, truck-drivin, asphault cowboy" that strikes a chord in me.
