Original Recordings: Singles & Unreleased (Audio CD)

Original Recordings
5.0 out of 5 stars
First, I bought this at a local store for 12.99, so it must be out domestically. Beware the import price. The sound of these early recordings, as would be expected, is more raw and unpolished than the groups other releases. I say unpolished relating to the production, not the musicianship. (And the production is fine; this is not like Iggy or the Dead Boys alt releases of Raw Power or Younger Louder Snottier, where the production was very low-fi.) The DC's could very well be the best band in the U.S. today. Lots of red hot guitar breaks; more than on other releases. And Rachel, as always is awesome. How they find a lot of these obscure songs to cover is beyond me. This band is tight, raw and even in these early sessions at the top of their game. Buy it - turn it up - put away anything flammable.

   So glad these early recordings by the Detroit Cobras have made it onto CD. For the uninitiated, the Cobras play a righteous, hip-shakin' blend of garage rock-and-soul. My favorites on this collection are "Come Over to My House," "Village of Love," "Funnel of Love," and "Curly Haired Baby." Also of note is their fast and ferocious cover of The Kinks'"Brainwashed." The production (or lack thereof) is a bit rough around the edges, but then that's part of the charm here. If you're new to the Cobras, I'd start with the phenominal BABY CD, but this is also highly recommended, as are their other discs. Don't miss them live!
