Collectable's Ersel Hickey compilation The Rockin' Bluebird is nearly as comprehensive as Bear Family's 1994 collection Bluebirds Over the Mountain, featuring his biggest hit "Bluebirds Over the Mountain," "Kicks," and "Shame on Me." "Don't Be Afraid of Love," "Stardust Brought Me You," and "Rockabilly Dream" also showcase Hickey's unique, pop-tinged rockabilly style. Though it lacks some of the alternate versions that the Bear Family collection includes, The Rockin' Bluebird is still a fine introduction to Ersel Hickey's music. ~ Heather Phares
