iTunes Review

Welshman Dave Edmunds made a career of pulling melodies from rockabilly roadhouses, English pubs, and country lanes. So this near career-spanning collection is a swell mixer of history-tripping nostalgias. It reveals Edmunds' ability to absolutely possess songs he didn’t write; stunning are his takes of Smiley Lewis’ “I Hear You Knockin’,” Elvis Costello’s “Girls Talk” (live here), Nick Lowe’s “I Knew the Bride,” John Fogerty’s “Almost Saturday Night,” and The Everly Brothers’ gorgeous “Let It Be Me.” Worthy oddities abound too, such as the Jeff Lynne–helmed “Slipping Away” and “Run Rudolph Run” from the Party Party soundtrack.

That being said, there's a few songs on here that almost makes it worth shelling out the $9.99. Almost.

Roots rockers are seldom as purist as Dave Edmunds. Throughout his career, he stayed true to '50s and '60s rock & roll -- for Edmunds, rock & roll history stopped somewhere in 1963, after the Beach Boys' first singles but before the Beatles' hits. After establishing himself as a hotshot lead guitarist in the blues-rockers Love Sculpture, he launched his solo career by painstakingly re-creating oldies in his own studio, usually recording every track by himself. Through all of his efforts, he learned...
