CD Reviews

Gone but not forgotten
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is an overview of Cub Koda's career- from his first garage band, the Del Tinos, to Brownsville Station, to his later solo work. Cub was at heart a real roots rocker as shown on this comp. His style was an amalgam of Bo Didley, blues ,garage, surf and some wild r&b. His only hit was "Smoking in the Boy's Room" with Brownsville Station in the seventies, but actually I liked his other stuff better. His solo work was raw and primitive and he could play any style with authenticity. If you covet this type of music , played with unbridled enthusiasm, I would heartily recommend it. I am sorry to hear of Cub's untimely passing last week. I will miss his column in "Discoveries". The roots rock music community has lost one of it's most avid supporters....Cub Koda will be sorely missed."
Great Roots Rock Potpourri

"This set encompasses Cub's non-Brownsville Station solo work from 1963-1993. Best known for the hit "Smokin' in the Boys Room" Koda's solo work proved to be just as interesting. The set contains 6 unissued tracks and much material which is out of print and rare. The material is in a variety of styles. Koda's guitar chops are spotlighted in the great intrumentals like Chuck Berry's "Guitar Boogie" , Bo Diddley's "Mumblin' Guitar" and Link Wray's "Ace of Spades". Cub was also adept at slide guitar as evidenced by "Highway 49" backed by the Houserockers and acoustic blues in "Olds 98 Blues." The unissued opener "Love Is A Damn Good Feelin'" is a rocker in the ZZ Top mold while "King of Surf" illustrates Koda's surf influences. Rockabilly influences like "Two Handed Love Affair" and Koda's first single from 1963 "Go! Go! Go!" are also included. "Welcome To My Job" is well worth picking up for roots rock enthusiasts and those interested in Koda's solo work and influences."
Just great

"This is just another album by a fantastic musician, cut short in his prime. I was fortunate enough to see Cub back in 1985 at a small club in Burlington, Connecticut and he put on a performance that will forever live in my mind and in all of those who were there to witness the show. You might think of Jimi Hendrix when it comes to playing with his teeth and behind his back, but Jimi must have been mentored by Cub because their was no one and will probably never be another musician with the talent to handle a guitar as Cub Koda. He could actually dance with his guitar and man could he pick. Its unfortunate that he passed away so young, but when we saw him in 85 you could see the Rock n Roll lifestyle taking a toll on him. If you want to hear good old American Rock n Roll, buy this album."
