DUANE EDDY Jamie 4026 Plays Songs Of Our Heritage ● CD $15.98
19 tracks, 48 min, good
Can it be possible - a boring Duane Eddy LP? This set reissues Jamie 3011 from 1960. I knew there was gonna be trouble when the liner notes refer to this set as "unplugged" - just like the answer to "thank you" is "you're welcome", not "no problem", the use of natural sounding instruments is "acoustic" not "unplugged". This set features Duane on banjo & acoustic guitar with the other main instrument being Jim Horn on flute! The songs are folk songs like someone would be playing by a campfire before nodding off to sleep. Tunes include Scarlet Ribbons/ On Top Of Old Smokey/ Cripple Creek, John Henry, etc. On the plus side, the stereo sound from the original master tapes is outstanding & there's eight never before heard tracks that are either undubbed or alternate takes complete with studio chatter. But I just can't picture "dance with the banjo man". (GM)

VARIOUS ARTISTS Romulan UFOX 04 Girls In The Garage, Part 3 ● CD $15.98
Reissue of old LP with 8 bonus cuts featuring 23 tracks by obscure girl groups from the 60s. It's hard to be objective about this, either you find it inept or charming. Me, I'd rather listen to Plommons outtakes than sit in the front row at the Grammies. Highlights on this CD include the ultra cool Jacqueline Taieb - 7:00 AM ("which mini skirt shall I wear today"), Jenny & The Statesiders - Putty In Your Hands (pre-Yardbirds version) and The Tone Benders - Little Black Egg plus tracks by The Liverbirds, Mandy & The Girlfriends, The Cake, The Surfer Girls and more. Cover rated R. (AE)
