Dave Edmunds - Chronicles (1994) Retail CD
Dave was a brilliant musician - you might describe him as an electric guitar virtuoso - and a good singer (though some of the early tracks are instrumentals), whose records often reflected his fifties influences, but his music always sounded fresh and exciting. His first success came with Sabre dance, an incredible cover of an old instrumental that reached the top five in the UK and was quite unlike anything else in the late sixties pop charts. He had no further success until I hear you knocking topped the British charts in 1971 and also became a huge hit in America. This song was originally writtenmore… and recorded by Smiley Lewis but was also an American hit for Gale Storm. However, Dave Edmunds made the song his own with his high-energy performance. Later in the seventies, Dave had further British success with Girls talk (an Elvis Costello song) and Queen of hearts, an original song that later became a huge American hit for Juice Newton. It is ironic that his biggest success as a recording artist was with a cover version, but that when he did come up with a great original song, it was somebody else who had the American hit. Baby ride easy is a country duet with Carlene Carter that is unlike anything else here. Some great covers are included in this anthology, often better than the original, including Born to be with you, Singing the blues, Almost Saturday night and The race is on - so there's some rock'n'roll, some blues and some country in there. Bruce Springsteen wrote From small things big things come for Dave to record. It isn't possible to do justice to Dave's music in a single CD but of those I've looked at, this appears to be the strongest. If you really enjoy high-energy rock'n'roll music, I recommend you pay the extra for the Anthology double CD but of the single CD's I've looked at, this appears to be the strongest.
