Phil Dirt - Reverb Central - PO Box 1609, Felton, CA 95018-1609 USA Collection: Crimson and Clover : A Tribute To Tommy James and the Shondells
|Crimson and Clover : A Tribute To Tommy James and the Shondells is a rather fun disc, with a better than average collection of covers of Tommy James tracks. Before getting too much on the bubble gum track, his productions were nothing short of brilliant, with groundbreaking use of effects and layering. Two intros are here along side the vocals.|
Picks: Thunderbolt, Baby, I Can't Take It No More
Track by Track Review
Way more surf and infectious than the original Tommy James and the Shondells B-side, this take on "Thunderbolt" is all reverbed out and sports a grand damped reverb rhythm. The song is not very melodic, but this sure does work well!
Baby, I Can't Take It No More
The "Baby, I Can't Take It No More" play a garagy organ combo arrangement of "Baby, I Can't Take It No More" that's friendly enough, and well suited for a scene setter. Not overly inventive, but smooth and intriguing.
