In the late seventies and early eighties, an energetic neo-trend grew up alongside and within the Punk and so-called New Wave Rock ‘n’ Roll scene. It was a revival called Rockabilly and right in the heart of it all was Finn & The Sharks from Nyack NY. They recorded a four song EP entitled "Innercity Rockabilly" on their own label, Rebel Records, but Finn & the Sharks do not fit neatly into the 'rockabilly' category.

One of the songs on the EP, "The Wheels Start Turning", has a distinct up-tempo beat and features James Finnen's honking baritone sax. It was later re-recorded and released as a 12" and 7" 45 RPM vinyl single on John Hammond's short-lived HME Label.
It garnered some airplay and was played on Dick Clark's "American Bandstand".
"The Wheels Start Turning", included here is the HME version of the song recorded live at the Power Station in Studio A with a whole crowd of the band's fans and friends on hand creating the party sound that producer and engineer, Larry Alexander, was looking for.

The CD contains many of the never before released studio sides from the 80's and also several songs recorded since then. It has 3 of the four original tunes from the Innercity Rockabilly EP. These songs, along with the entire Sharks catalogue, have never been released on CD. There is also a cut of "At The Crossroads", the B-side to “Wheels”, recorded live at CBGB's. Nostalgia, yes, but Finn and his Sharks sound as dynamic and impressive as ever. On this CD and in the flesh.

If you were around in the late seventies and early 1980's you probably were aware of an energetic neo-trend that grew up along side and within the Punk and so-called New-Wave Rock’n’Roll scene. It was a revival of what might be considered the first real rebellious teenage music genre that arose in the 1950's. It was called Rockabilly and right in the heart of it all was Finn & the Sharks. The band had a reputation for rocking hard and had an enthusiastic following whenever and wherever they played. They recorded a four song EP entitled "Innercity Rockabilly" on their own label, Rebel...
