The Fabulous Freebirds first emerged on the wrestling scene on November 24, 1979 when the young, brash duo of Michael “P.S.” Hayes and Terry “Bam Bam” Gordy defeated “Cowboy” Bill Watts and Col. Buck Robley for the NWA Mid-South Tag Team Titles.

The Freebirds had a brief reincarnation in the Global Wrestling Federation in 1994, with Gordy and Garvin capturing the GWF titles, but the glory days of the original trio were long gone.

While these songs swing sweeter than 1998's martini-and-cigar crowd might have liked, "Fabulous" may well be among the few big band CDs a new fan would need.
