Spedding has a formidable resume as a session player, having appeared
on literally hundreds of sessions, ranging from his work with Brian
Ferry and John Cale to his mid-seventies appearance as one of the
Wombles! Having been part of the excellent but criminally overlooked
British band The Sharks in the early seventies, Spedding released a
fine trilogy of solo albums in the mid to late seventies -"Chris
Spedding", "Hurt" and "Guitar Graffiti". "Hurt" is the best of the
lot.
Featuring his own idiosyncratic, often humourous originals and
somewhat deadpan vocals, along with a well chosen cover or two, "Hurt"
sees Spedding trawl through a variety of styles - RnB, rock and roll,
countryish rock and his unique take on punk/new wave, the latter
typified by the irresistable "Get Outa My Pagoda", the bonus track
"Pogo Dancing" (a UK single)and the stunning title track. Throughout,
Spedding's guitar sparkles - he's a true original, his solos
inevitably spot on and concise. His playing at the conclusion of "Hurt
by Love" provides a great example of his style.
Spedding is still active today, and still recording high quality
records, but "Hurt" is Chris Spedding at his best.
This German re-issue features four bonus tracks, all of which sit
nicely with the original ten song album.

Thanks! Great album. If you could dig up anything by The Sharks, it would be much appreciated, I'm really curious to hear what they sound like. Or maybe it's just prog crap?
