DIG EVERYTHING! THE EARLY ROUNDER ALBUMS

ACE



CD

Released: 23rd Feb 2018

£12.99


this compilation features both albums for the first time ever on compact disc.

Featured across this collection are many of the numbers most immediately identifiable with the band, including several such as ‘Bloody Mary’, ‘Rockin’ The Mule In Kansas’ & ‘Big Mamou’. Blasting out of Boston, Massachusetts in the mid-80s like a wailing, screaming R&B banshee, Barrence Whitfield and the Savages provided music with a much-needed return to a solid rhythm & blues base at a time when popular music in general was being over-run with synthy pop trivialities & bombastic stadium rock. Armed only with real instruments, a pile of obscure cover versions & new group originals that sounded like they should have been obscure covers, Barrence & the Savages didn’t so much reinvent the wheel as remind everyone what was so good about it in the first place.
