Review from MARCREATION

cThe Donettes

The Donettes 6 song EP "Kick off the Covers" kicks off with a revved-up gender-bending version of Wayne Walker's "All I Can Do Is Cry" and ends with the even speedier"Hello Little Boy" (one of a trio of Ruth Brown covers on the CD), which showcases the band's instrumental chops. But in between The Donettes show they can do more than just play straight rockabilly. They flirt with country on"Cowboy's Sweetheart", R&B on Ruth Brown's #1 hit "5-10-15 Hours" and do a wonderful job reworking (and slowing down) the rhythm of Roxie Williams"Fifteen Seconds". Great vocals by Rebecca Kemberling and crisp production (by the band) make you wish "Kick off the Covers" was a full length disc.
