CD Reviews

The best wierd-but-straight-ahead group you never heard of
David Scott Goen | Ballwin, MO USA | 02/22/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"While I can understand prefering the first Back Door album to this, Back Door's second effort, this album is a must-buy for any bass player. Colin Hodgkinson gives a rather amazing, tour-de-force performance, sometimes sounding like two or three players at once. 32-20 Blues, in particular, is one of the greatest examples of bass playing ever recorded. A neglected genius,Back Door deserved better recognition. Perhaps the unusual setting of bass-sax-drums was simply too wierd for the general public, but that doesn't explain the neglect from musicians. Buy this now. Maybe they'll release the other two albums on CD. It's minus a star simply because I don't believe in grade inflation. For bassplayers, this is certainly a five star album."
An enjoyable listen

"I prefer the eponymous Back Door recording, for its greater passion. This sounds as if much more money was spent on the production, and in some way loses a certain rawness. Still the playing is incredible. Listen to Hodgkinson play Robert Johnson type lick on the bass, and twice as fast, e'g 32-20. Hodgkinson has a great blues voice, and the group are tight, play brilliantly, but a little fire is missing."
