    Krall dips into the long-ago past

    Up on the stage again
    In the 1980s, there wasn't a continent that wasn't touched by the Stray Cats. The band was credited for reviving rockabilly and made the top of the charts in the U.S., U.K. and Australia with hits such as "Stray Cat Strut" and "Sexy and 17." On...
