"I picked up this little chestnut @ a yard sale in rural Virginia. In a case that looked like it had scrubbed bricks was this little delightful disc. Dust off a CD in good shape & snap in it a fresh case & voila, I have a great addition to the music collection! The Curb Records "Greatest Hits" doesn't have all of the tunes that a comprehensive Price collection might offer from his various labels, but the 10 tracks here are well worth the price. Price's original "Lawdy Miss Clawdy" that I recalled from a 1965 Hollies album "Hear! Here!" Joe Cocker also recorded it for Mad Dogs & Englishmen with versions including Fats Domino & Eric Burdon. Price's track opens with a Fat Domino-like piano roll, "I give you all of my money, but you just won't treat me right; You like to ball in the morning, don't come back till late at night." Price adapted "Stagger Lee" from an old blues tune. It was startling in its day. I read that Dick Clark required a less violent version for Price's appearance on "American Bandstand," which accounts for a couple different versions of the song. "Personality" still seems catchy to me. I was joyfully joining in the chorus as I drove through a gorgeous winding road in Virginia. "Baby Come Home" is another excellent track with its slow sax chorus and Price's vocals rising and falling like waves of need & longing. "Carry Me Home" has a rollicking piano, blistering sax & Price's voice blazing like a rock & roll rocket, "Hey baby, don't you want a man like me? Well I'm too young, haven't made 23." "Mailman Blues" that concludes the set is a bouncy roller that mourns having to go in the military draft because, "I can't see my baby no more." This "Greatest Hits" is a good intro to one of our early great artists from the rock era. Enjoy!"
