Rock and roll pioneer Freddy Cannon and Los Straijackets met when Freddy saw the band play their Rock En Espanol version of his signature song "Tallahassee Lassie" on Late Night With Conan O'Brien and Freddy emailed his appreciation. A few years later they joined forces to cut this two sided slab of rock'n'baseball vinyl. Freddy's lifelong enthusiasm for the Red Sox was so infectious, even Yankee fan Eddie Angel couldn't help joining in! Side a is new anthem penned by the 99ers' Stephen Brookfield entitled "The Sox R Rockin'" and side B "Red Sox Nation" combines rock'n'roll classics "Land of 1000 Dances" with "Dirty Water" with new lyrics that will be sure to have the Fenway Faithful singing along this season. Just in time for this season's opening day!!
