The Jaguars waxed only two 45s, of which this limited reissue pairing of "Jaguar" and "Roundabout" was the pick. Cut back in the Texas oilfields of '59, all their songs came with a car theme. Presumably, these guys were part of a wild gang of hot-rod teen tearaways, blaring music out of their custom cars. Certainly, the wild & rasping sax on "Jaguar" is played to sound reminiscent of a revving engine. "Roundabout" is every bit as good and every bit as sleazy.
