From 1976, with Edmunds at the height of his powers, comes the first of his four great albums on Led Zeppelin's Swan Song label. Dynamite, uptempo rock and roll, infectious rockabilly, the short step to slick, country-inflected pop and a curio from an old musical are the components of this album. Don't worry if you don't like any of these genres, as Edmunds does it all tastefully. Rockpile were not quite complete for this album as Billy Bremner is absent, but you'd hardly notice.
Great harmony vocal arrangements pepper this album, not least on the cover of "Git It" and the lush, slow and loping acoustic track, "Where Or When". They're almost superfluous on Bob Seger's "Get Out Of Denver" however. Even by Edmunds' high standards this is one of his most exciting performances. There are echoes of the Everly Brothers in upbeat mode on "Here Comes The Weekend" and there's even a hit single, the classy "I Knew The Bride", apparently modelled on Chuck Berry's "You Never Can Tell". If you've ever liked anything by Dave Edmunds you'll love this.
