Offering up a bracing shot of rock & roll revivalism in the midst of the synth-loving 1980s New Wave era, the Stray Cats were utterly anachronistic and undeniably charming, a point driven home by this well-selected 25-track compilation. With its '50s greaser look and its no-frills guitar/bass/drums lineup, the Long Island, New York-based trio brought nothing particularly new to the table, but in singer/guitarist Brian Setzer, the rockabilly group had both a top-notch song stylist and a genuinely charismatic frontman, as best exemplified on the swaggering "Rock This Town" and the lusty "(She's) Sexy + 17." Other highlights of RUNAWAY BOYS include a twangy take on the Motown classic "You Can't Hurry Love" and the lovelorn "I Won't Stand in Your Way."
