CD Reviews

One for the Collector
Laurence Upton | Wilts, UK | 11/18/2004
(3 out of 5 stars)

"More one for the collector, this collects 6 later A-sides, 9 B-sides, 3 tracks from Gary US Bonds first album, and 5 previously unreleased works, and provides "a chance to experience the other side of Gary Anderson's unique vocal talent - the soulful ballads, R&B belters and some delightful doo wop", as the notes proclaim. There is much to enjoy, such as the Christmas novelty Call Me For Christmas and the singles What A Dream (an exuberant love song with a reference to the Mona Lisa), My Sweet Ruby Rose, and Oh Yeah! Oh Yeah! from 1964, credited to Gary US Bonds and the Stompers and meeting the British invasion head on with a Kinks-like guitar figure and "Mersey" sound.

However it is the unreleased numbers that fascinate the most - a totally reworked version of Johnny Cash's I Walk The Line, an update of the Hoagy Carmichael standard The Nearness Of You and a duet with his wife, Laurie Cedeno Anderson, formerly of the Love Notes."
