Album Review

Leading off with "Never Learned to Dance," one of his most frenetic singles, Averne certainly didn't let up for his second album. The opener is a great piece of boogaloo popcorn, with a background of punchy brass and wild-man electric piano solos. The first side of The Harvey Averne Dozen alternates vocal tracks (usually slow-dance period pieces) with some hot instrumentals, more in a funk vein than salsa. The album wins out with instrumentals like the original "Dynamite" and the Beatles cover "I Feel Fine," while the bland vocal tracks "Girl That I Love" and "Central Park" only succeed in dragging down the proceedings. The second side takes a slight dip in quality, with rote versions of "Goin' Out of My Head" and even "Lullaby From Rosemary's Baby." It's not an LP masterpiece by any means, but surprisingly good for the times.
