CD Reviews

Pure, clean shot of industrial grade adrenalin.
Dave Massie | Washington DC | 02/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This guy came and went so quick, even for the 60's, if you blinked you missed him. But, if you caught him, you were slammed into a vortex of raw, rough-edged energy that twisted you're head around and left you looking for you're momma. Man he was good. Just driving around, windows open, cigarette hanging out the window, cold beer nestled in the crotch and listening to Mitch.

Life was good."

"In this one disc, we have an opportunity to listen to music that helped shape the sound of AM radio in the mid 60's, and which would go on to influence a generation or two (at least) of other artists like: The Stooges, MC5, Bob Seger and, of course, Bruce Springsteen. Since he doesn't get anywhere near the airplay he deserves, it's easy to forget what a tremendous rock 'n roller Mitch Ryder was. This CD, with a great mix of high profile hits and lesser known tracks will give the first time listener a good idea of what Mitch was doing back in the day and why he was so popular. For a graybeard like me, it's like a time machine back to 1966 when I played Little Latin Lupe Lu so many times I thought the phonograph needle was going to wear a hole right through the vinyl."

"Mitch Ryder was a great white R&B singer and the Detroit Wheels were a great white R&B band. They recorded a string of solid R&B songs, the biggest hits being "Jenny Take a Ride!", "Devil With a Blue Dress On & Good Golly Miss Molly" and "Sock It To Me-Baby!". But the group broke up at the height if their popularity when Mitch was convinced by his producer to pursue a solo career as a balladeer. This was a huge mistake, as Mitch had a rock and roll voice, not a big band voice. His career never recovered. But these 20 songs are fine examples of what Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels did best; make R&B influenced rock music."
