CD Reviews

Fantastic album.
Bop Cat | 08/31/2007

"This is arguably the best Dave Edmunds CD you can get. All the songs are great. True classic rock'n'roll from an authentic roots musician. Some tunes are rockabilly and some are more traditional country, but all are pure "Dave Edmunds" rockin' sounds. It's truly amazing that this brilliant recording artist hasn't become more mainstream in the U.S. and had more big hits here, even though he certainly isn't obscure by any means. Along with his other two albums from the late '70's, "Tracks on Wax 4" and "Repeat When Necessary", I highly recommend this."
The Record Theatre

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Late 1977, Syracuse, NY. Working at the Record Theatre on Marshall Street. Drips and drabs of British New Wave were coming into the store. Curious, I played the Damned, Stranglers, Pistols, etc. It was a little too amateurish for me yet (until about 6 mos. later, but that's another story). I sliced open the shrink wrap on this LP b/c I knew just a wee bit about Edmunds.

This LP holds up today with the great Rock + Roll albums. It's so well played and produced and just rocks along in a great rockabilly, rock, crooning way. "Darlin" is still my favorite love song ever. Every time a customer came into the record store and asked for a suggestion, I would ALWAYS recommemnd this one and they would come back ecstatic the next day - I must have personally sold 50 copies of this LP. This also opened up the world of Nick Lowe, Stiff Records and the Flamin Groovies to me, and I have cherished them all ever since. Highly, highly recommended."
Good Rocking, Sharp Guitar

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dave Edmunds provides great vocals and stellar guitar playing on his interpretation of some rocking covers. He rips it up on the Bob Seeger rave "Get Out of Denver", stays pretty faithful on his version of buddy Nick Lowe's song "I Knew the Bride", and continues with killer versions of Graham Parker's "Back to Schooldays", which I feel is stronger than the original (later Dave did a great version of another Parker song, "Crawling From the Wreckage", also probably better than Parker's). I love Dave's version of "Here Comes the Weekend", and the great covers continue. Dave's version of "Where or When" is based on the Belmont's version, and does not disappoint. Some of the other highlights are "Ju Ju Man", "Hey Good Looking", and "My Baby Left Me". This is one of many Dave Edmunds disks worth owning."
