"One of the great NY area bands of that time was the Secret Service. Though there were other great Mod bands in the area (especially the mighty Mod Fun, who worked more on the Pop Art side of things), The Secret Service brought back the sounds of UK R&B circa 1964. They were a shit-hot live band and had extremely good taste in covers. One of those covers was a tune called ‘Lovin’ Machine’". Larry Grogan Funky16Corners

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. 'Cause I Sez So 2. Muddy Bones 3. Better Than You 4. Lonely So Long 5. My World 6. This Is Ridiculous 7. Temptation To Exist 8. Making Rain 9. Drowning 10. Nobody Got No Bizness 11. Trash 12. Exorcism Of Despair

The New York Dolls have reunited with Todd Rundgren, producer of their influential 1973 debut, to record their fourth studio album, 'Cause I Sez So, on Atco Records. Recorded at Utopia Sound Studio in Kauai, Hawaii, the album features original Dolls David Johansen (vocals) and Sylvain Sylvain (guitar) plus Steve Conte (guitar), Brian Delaney (drums), and Sami Yaffa (bass). The 12-song track list features 11 original compositions, including the first single ' 'Cause I Sez So' and a new version of 'Trash,' which was on their 1973 debut album. 'It was amazing working with Todd again, and I think we were able to evoke the special sound of our first album and drag it by the hair into the present,' says frontman Johansen.....

The Glitter Band-Hey!


The Glitter Band-Hey!

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Tell Him 2. Angel Face 3. Shout It Out 4. Sea Cruise 5. All I Have To Do Is Dream 6. Rock On 7. Just For You 8. Twistin' The Night Away 9. Baby I Don't Care 10. Sealed With A Kiss 11. I'm Celebrating 12. Gimme Some Loving 13. Angel Face 14. You Wouldn't Leave Me Would You 15. You Know You Should Be Glad 16. Ring Around
Following the first two singles (both included on this album), "Angel face" (UK no 5)and "Just for you" (UK No8) the album "Hey" was released. The tracks are mostly covers which is ok for me. There are some wonderfull moments here like "Shout it out" and "Tell Him". Also good to have it on CD with the added bonus tracks which are great original songs and if there is one reason for getting this CD, it would be for "you know you should be glad" because it should have been a single, it's fantastic and criminal that this track was not released in the 70s.

BLACK JOE LEWIS and The Honeybears - Tell 'Em What Your name is


BLACK JOE LEWIS and The Honeybears - Tell 'Em What Your name is

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Gunpowder 2. Sugarfoot 3. I'm Broke 4. Big Booty Woman 5. Boogie 6. Master Sold My Baby 7. Get Yo Shit 8. Humpin' 9. Bobby Booshay 10. Please Pt.

Two Formed in Austin, TX, Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears is an eight-piece, garage-soul ensemble featuring groove-laden guitars, penetrating brass and a fiery frontman who exudes power and attitude. Experiencing the raw energy of Black Joe's performances, accompanied by The Honeybears' masterful backing is the equivalent of a kick to the stomach. Their gut-shot style, felt in such songs as "Gunpowder", "Master Sold My Baby" and "I'm Broke", draws directly from their classic soul, R&B and blues influences. Inspiration from artists such as Otis Redding and The Bar-Kays, James Brown and Lightning Hopkins are clearly present in their songs and live shows, but Black Joe Lewis & The Honeybears inject a full-tilt, unabashedly brash element to this old-school style.
Tell `Em What Your Name Is! was produced by Jim Eno of Spoon, and recorded, mostly live in the studio, in Austin, TX.

Rockpile - Seconds of Pleasure


Rockpile - Seconds of Pleasure
@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. Teacher Teacher 2. If Sugar Was as Sweet as You 3. Heart 4. Now and Always 5. Knife and a Fork 6. Play That Fast Thing (One More Time) 7. Wrong Again (Let's Face It) 8. Pet You and Hold You 9. Oh What a Thrill 10. When I Write the Book 11. Fool Too Long 12. You Ain't Nothin' But Fine 13. Take a Message to Mary 14. Crying in the Rain 15. Poor Jenny 16. When Will I Be Loved? 17. Back to Schooldays [Live] 18. They Called It Rock [Live] 19. Crawling from the Wreckage

Nick Lowe and Dave Edmunds produced two of the finest pop moments of the seventies-Lowe's "Jesus of Cool" album, the wonderful "Repeat When necessary" from Edmunds. Amazing style, wit, rhythym that led to everyone from Elvis Costello to The Stray Cats, offering songs, production postings, pleas for help. Not a track is wasted and ,like The Beatles at their "Revolver" heyday, it is a satisfying blend of two distinctive styles (with even a song from a third member thrown in - the wonderful Motown inspired "Heart"). Highs are Dave Edmunds performing a Chuck Berry cover that eclipses the original by some distance ("Oh, what a thrill") and the instantly addictive "Play that fast thing (one more time)".This CD has, in addition, the tracks from the EP issued with the Vinyl original. Four Everly Brothers tracks performed solely with Lowe and Edmunds on guitars and vocals. n.b : This will be my last DAVE EDMUNDS post.

Bob Seger - Back In '72


Bob Seger - Back In '72

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1.Midnight Rider 2.So I Wrote You a Song 3.Stealer 4.Rosalie 5.Turn the Page 6.Back in '72 7.Neon Sky 8.I've Been Working 9.I've Got Time 10.Persecution smith11.Chain smokin'12.Lookin' Back13.Heavy Music part2
Back in 72' is one of three albums made by Bob Seger under the Palladium record label (founded by his manager Punch Andrews) after fulfilling his original contract with Capitol records in the early 1970's. Back in 72' is the only one of those three albums that up till now hade never been reissued.
Back In 72' was the source of two songs that made it to the Live Bullet album. "Turn the Page", which has become a rock anthem and staple of Bob's live performances and "I've Been Working" credited to Van Morrison survive via Live Bullet.
There are other fine tracks on Back In 72' including "Rosalie", a song about a Detroit DJ that garnered more success for Thin Lizzy than Bob Seger and "Neon Sky" a reflective ballad about painful choices between one's family and career. Neon Sky resonates with Seger's bittersweet hope that the effort will be worth it as he and his loved one "walk into the sun". "Neon Sky" and "Someday" off of "Smokin' O.P.'s" echo Bob Seger's frustrations with the lack of success (at the time) of his music.
Wile the album lacks production values of his later works it is filled with some fine songs.

Don Fardon - Indian Reservation & I've Paid My Dues


Don Fardon - Indian Reservation & I've Paid My Dues
@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. Indian Reservation 2. Treat Her Right 3. How Do You Break a Broken Heart 4. Captain Man 5. Dreamin'room 6. Sally Goes Around the Moon 7. Sunshine Woman 8. We Can Make It Together 9. Letter 10. I Need Somebody 11. Goodbye 12. Mr. Stationmaster 13. Belfast Boy 14. Hudson Bay 15. New York City 16. I'm Alive 17. Take a Heart 18. 6.10 Phoenix 19. Keep on Loving Me
The Sorrows released their first album, "Take a Heart", in 1965 on the Piccadilly Records label which was a subsidiary of Pye Records. The Sorrows were at the time the hardest, most aggressive and contemporary R&B band of that time, although later this brand of music was eventually termed "Freakbeat". One of the most overlooked bands of the British Invasion, they offered a tough brand of R&B-infused rock that recalled The Pretty Things (though not as R&B-oriented) and The Kinks (though not as pop-oriented). After leaving the Sorrows, Don Fardon made some very bad records and some very good ones. This CD collects almost all the really good ones. In one word buy without reservations if you like the R&B soul-voice. Absolutely my favorite cd this month.

Dave Edmunds - Repeat When Necessary


Dave Edmunds - Repeat When Necessary
@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Girls Talk 2. Crawling From The Wreckage 3. The Creature From The Black Lagoon 4. Sweet Little Lisa 5. Dynamite 6. Queen Of Hearts 7. Home In My Hand 8. Goodbye Mr. Good Guy 9. Take Me For A Little While 10. We Were Both Wrong 11. Bad Is Bad
Though Rockpile only released one album under its own name, it also functioned as the backup band for a handful of releases by both Edmunds and Nick Lowe. One of the finest rock bands to come out of the '70s, Rockpile was a powerfulquartet of guitarists Edmunds and Billy Bremner, bass player Lowe and drummer Terry Williams. On this album, Edmunds shows a keen sense for picking the right songs for his voice and for the band's sound. The production is crisp and powerful, with the ensemble sound taking precedence over the framing of individual instruments. REPEAT WHEN NECESSARY is full of great songs and great players--Williams in particular is an underrated marvel throughout. This is absolutely MY favorite album by DAVE EDMUNDS!

The Booby Traps - The Booby Traps


The Booby Traps - The Booby Traps

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

Shoulda Known Better (1:46 m:s) I Try (2:24 m:s) Fool For You (2:33 m:s) Sha Lala (2:27 m:s) Shake Up (2:27 m:s) Movin' On (2:23 m:s) Ms Fireball (2:09 m:s) Some Other Girl (1:55 m:s) Tough Times (1:48 m:s) Please (3:30 m:s) I Had A Dream (3:02 m:s) Another Day, Another Man (1:33 m:s) Be My Caveman (2:54 m:s)

THE BOOBY TRAPS are influenced by primitive fuzz sounds of garage bands from the 60’s, such as The Sonics & The Count Five, melodies and arrangements from girl groups such as The Shangri-Las and the Ronettes, the swagger and grit from black R’n’B from such greats as Nathaniel Mayer and Little Richard. Modern bands with similar influences with their own unique sounds also fill out the melting pot - The Pandoras, The Muffs, The Makers & The Headcoatees, THE BOOBY TRAPS are united in their passion for all things primitive and swingin’.

Dave Edmunds - Tracks On Wax 4


Dave Edmunds - Tracks On Wax 4

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. Trouble Boys 2. Never Been In Love 3. Not A Woman, Not A Child 4. Television 5. What Looks Best On You 6. Readers Wives 7. Deborah 8. Thread Your Needle 9. A.1. On The Jukebox 10. It's My Own Business 11. Heart Of The City
This album is the first full LP by Rockpile (Edmunds, Lowe, Billy Bremner and Terry Williams), and everything that marks this foursome for greatness is here. Edmunds rock 'n' roll roots mesh perfectly with the loopier pub rock of Lowe's songs. The band, gigging constantly, is as tight as a drum. Their future efforts, including Lowe's "Labour of Lust," Edmunds "Repeat When Necessary" and the band's own "Seconds of Pleasure" would all bear the same hallmarks, but this first assemblage is the most vital.
Edmunds lends superb rockabilly and blues stylings to the Lowe originals "Never Been in Love" and "Television," and the two exercise intricate Everly-styled harmonies on their own "What Looks Best on You." Edmunds' "A.1 on the Jukebox" is a fine two-step country-rocker, and the co-write "Deborah" is Nick Lowe styled power-pop at its best. Covers of Chuck Berry's "It's My Own Business," the obscure 1964 Dean and Jean B-side "Thread Your Needle," and a trio of songs by writers Billy Murray and N. Brown round out the album perfectly.

V.A.- Backbeat OST


V.A.- Backbeat OST

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included
1. Money (That's What I Want) 2. Long Tall Sally 3. Bad Boy 4. Twist and Shout 5. Please Mr. Postman 6. C'mon Everybody 7. Rock 'N' Roll Music 8. Slow Down 9. Roadrunner 10. Carol 11. Good Golly Miss Molly 12. 20 Flight Rock
The tunes your parents grew up with were favorites cover songs of the Beatles in their early, pre-fab days. Never mind if you haven't seen the movie (a great story loosely based on the 5th Beatle), it's all about the soundtrack anyway. The on screen band makes an attempt to look like the Beatles. While the real musicians behind the scenes make a better attempt to sound like 'em. Guitar legend Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth) goes way retro with a successful effort to recreate the original Beatles sound (i.e. - vintage instruments) and is almost outdone by Greg Dulli (Afghan Wigs) on vocals. Tight sound all around.

Dave Edmunds - Get It


Dave Edmunds - Get It

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Get Out Of Denver 2. I Knew The Bride 3. Back To School Days 4. Here Comes The Weekend 5. Worn Out Suits Brand New Pockets 6. Where Or When 7. Juju Man 8. Git It 9. Let's Talk About Us 10. Hey Good Lookin' 11. What Did I Do Last Night 12. Little Darlin' 13. My Baby Left Me
After Nick Lowe played bass on Dave Edmunds' previous release, SUBTLE AS A FLYING MALLET, Edmunds and Lowe started working together in earnest. While GET IT wasn't truly the first Rockpile album (Edmunds' next, TRACKS ON WAX 4, would have all four Rockpile members), it jumps out of the gate like something wonderful and ferocious. Where Edmunds' earlier albums always included a handful of great rocking numbers, GET IT was his first to really maintain a groove from beginning to end. A number of Lowe's and Edmunds' signature songs make their first appearances here, including "I Knew the Bride" and "Here Comes the Weekend". Produced, like all its predecessors, by Edmunds, GET IT's a richly detailed set of songs, warm and punchy throughout. Anyone who can cover both Bob Seger ("Get out of Denver") and Rodgers & Hart ("Where or When") on the same album and have it make sense is indeed a force to be reckoned with.

Dave Edmunds - Subtle As A Flying Mallet


Dave Edmunds - Subtle As A Flying Mallet

@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Baby I Love You 2. Leave My Woman Alone 3. Maybe 4. Doo Ron Ron 5. Let It Be Me 6. No Money Down 7. Need a Shot of Rhythm and Blues 8. Billy the Kid 9. Born to Be with You 10. She's My Baby 11. I Ain't Never 12. Let It Rock 13. Pick Axe Rag [Instrumental] 14. Some Other Guy
This release of the original has two additional cuts which showcase Dave's guitar expertise. The original contained a selection of tunes that were influential to Dave Edmunds. "Baby I Love You" features layered vocals to attempt to reproduce the Ronettes' sound. The version of "Leave My Woman Alone" is faithful to the original. "Let It Be Me" is a natural fit, showing that the Everly Brothers were such a strong influence. Chuck Berry's "No Money Down" is also a great match for Dave's vocal and guitar style. "Let It Rock" is the perfect closure for a release of rocking covers. I recommend this.

Dave Edmunds - Rockpile


Dave Edmunds - Rockpile
@ 320 kbps - Covers are included

1. Down Down Down 2. I Hear You Knocking 3. Hell of a Pain 4. It Ain't Easy 5. Promised Land 6. Dance Dance Dance 7. (I'm A) Lover Not a Fighter 8. Egg or the Hen 9. Sweet Little Rock & Roller 10. Outlaw Blues 11. I Hear You Knocking [Single Mix] 12. Black Bill 13. I'm Coming Home 14. Country Roll 15. Blue Monday 16. I'll Get Along

German reissue of the Welsh root-rocker's 1972 debut album with six bonus tracks.There's a nice home-made feeling on this record, D.E. plays almost all instruments himself and pretty well and with good taste.He crafted a tight, ballsy guitar sound intertwining several layered guitars to give an overall punchy six string effect. In an earlier review the term "guitar salad" was used. Very apt.
