“I always thought of Benny Joy as the Dark Prince of Southern Rockabilly. His music was just so brooding and intense. In high school, I tried to dress like him. I put him on an even higher par than Elvis. Benny Joy was outstanding in everything he did.”
- Dex Romweber

  1. Didn't i read somewhere that Joy's "I'm Doubtful Of Your Love" would be reissued on a 45? I've been loving and looking for that song ever since Tav Falco covered it on his 1987 platter 'The World We Knew'...
