Boi-oi-oinng! BK was the guitarist in Commander Cody & His Lost Planet Airman, which will immediately set Telecasters ringing in the minds of the sophisticated.

Here he is in the company of rootsical compadres (Costello, Dan Hicks, Nick Lowe impersonating Charlie Rich) doing what he does – country, rock'n'roll, western swing; songs by Merle Haggard and Roger Miller. The abundance of guests tells you Bill ain't no singer, but the songs are good and the Tele rings. Dave Edmunds fans should concern themselves.
