CD Reviews

Actually, NO stars for this CD
(1 out of 5 stars)

"I guess one star is the worst rating I'm allowed to give it. But it deserves NO stars, and here's why: Anyone who fondly remembers Matchbox's high-powered "Rockabilly Rebel" album on vinyl from 20 years ago will be disappointed to learn this CD is not the same item. I sent it back with the shrink-wrap still on it when I saw the songs listed on the back. Only the title track remains from the original release. Maybe it's the version I know, maybe it's a rerecorded version -- it doesn't matter. The original record had 12 tracks; this CD has seven, including "Radar Love" (which I assume is the Golden Earring classic). I don't care how good this CD may be, I don't understand why it's called "Rockabilly Rebel" by a band called Matchbox when it clearly isn't the same collection of songs released under that title 20 years ago. Besides, who wants to pay import prices for seven songs? I suggest you pass on this one and hope, as I do, that some company will gain the rights to issue the real deal before we're too old to rock. (By the way, the good folks at Amazon are blameless for this situation. My ire is directed at the record company that put this thing out in the first place.)"
What a ...!!

"I bought this cd hoping to listen again the fabulous album issued by Magnet Records many years ago. But I only found seven songs and only the title track is the only link to that old long play. Maybe one day I will find the original cd...maybe!"

"You can now buy the original on CD reference Raucous Records
Ref RAUCD 081. Happy listening. I was an original groupie of Matchbox in the late seventies, Graham Fenton attended my wedding and was nearly my brother in law. Buy it, I might as I no longer have the vinyl."
