Los Straitjackets - Deke Dickerson Sings The Great Instrumental Hits

'In case you're confused, imagine Bill Murray's classic lounge singer character on Saturday Night Live belting out drunken made up lyrics to the 'Star Wars Theme.' It can be done, it has been done, and these songs truly come alive once you hear them sung... with words!

In this case, America's #1 instrumental combo (Los Straitjackets) and I decided that 6 knuckleheads were better than one and that joining forces for an album's worth of vocal instrumentals was yet another mountain that needed to be climbed. It is the first album of its kind, and it is required to be in your collection.' - Deke Dickerson
