Album Review

The final studio work by the band — Sean Tyla (vocals, guitar), Martin Belmont (guitar), Mick Groom (bass), and Tim Roper (drums) — is as good as anything the group ever did on RCA. This album, an expanded version of their Jumpin' EP from Skydog, opens up with a high-energy version of "I Fought the Law" that makes Bobby Fuller's original sound like the work of a high-school band. Two very different versions of "Something's Going On," a killer version of "Here Comes the Night," the romantic rocker "Amsterdam Dog" (highlighted by some great electric slide), the funky "Cannons of the Boogie Night," and the anthem-like "Rock and Roll for Every Boy and Girl" (which opens almost like a burlesque of the finale of the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again") are some of the remaining highlights. The nine Ducks Deluxe tracks are rounded out with two lesser Sean Tyla-produced songs from Left Hand Drive, and all of it is played with a drive, passion, and precision that makes All Too Much all too difficult to resist, especially as a standard-price release.

Customer Reviews

Good collection, incorrect sequencing

The Ducks were my favorite band of 1974 - maybe someday their first and best two albums will be available on iTunes - but there are some terrific songs here. This version of 'Here Comes the Night' is my favorite after Them's. Be forewarned though, 'I Fought the Law' is really Track 8 and 'Midnight Moon' is Track 7.

Ducks Deluxe & The Tyla Gang

I also was a big fan of Ducks Deluxe and followed the various spinoffs including The Tyla Gang. This collection barely touches the best songs that Ducks Deluxe released. For the real deal I'd advise finding a copy of the first release "Ducks Deluxe" if you can find it and also, but to a lesser extent, "Taxi To The Terminal Zone" which followed it up. These guys were masters of the Pub Rock scene in the mid-seventies.

Genre: Rock

Years Active: '70s, '80s, '00s

If the old scientific adage is true — that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction — then British pub rockers Ducks Deluxe were purely and simply a reaction. With the mid-'70s English pop scene dominated by glitter/glam rockers like Gary Glitter and Sweet or blustery, chops-heavy art rockers like Yes, Jethro Tull, and Genesis, then Ducks Deluxe represented none of the above. One of the first pub rock bands, the Ducks played basic American-style blues and boogie with remarkable...
