5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! 2 Dec 2011
By M. Hall
Format:Audio CD
This guy was recommended to me by a colleague who saw him perform live at the Rhythm Riot in Camber Sands, I'm so glad he did!

I feel like someone who has just discovered Rock n Roll for the very first time. It just sounds somehow so fresh and new, there's something magic about this album, the first thing that hits you is his superb voice, and the sound is just perfect. If he can continue turning out stuff like this, he's gonna be massive! I feel like taking up jiving lessons now so I can dance to it :)

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Excellence 9 Nov 2011
Format:Audio CD
This Album is a must for anyone who loves pure original sounding Rock n Roll and Rhythm N Blues. Just think Jackie Wilson, Ray Charles, Sam Cooke, Bunker Hill and Johnny Burnette all rolled into one and you will be blown away by this album.
The material is all there own bar one and sounds really fresh but authentic.
The guy has a voice to die for and the production is superb.
Do not hesitate to buy you will not be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leicester Bangs Review (2011): 26 Mar 2011
By Leicester Bangs TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
JD McPherson - Signs & Signifiers (Hi-Style Records)
JD McPherson's debut long-player, "Signs & Signifiers", is a proper old school rock `n' roll record, lovingly produced by Jimmy Sutton (Mighty Blue Kings, Four Charms, Del Moroccos), and recorded directly onto an antique 1960's Berlant inch tape machine. That dedication to detail reminds me of The La's Lee Mavers, who had to abandon recording a follow up to their much-acclaimed debut because he couldn't find authentic `60s dust to coat his old Vox amps. Hopefully McPherson wont be quite so obsessive, as I'm already a little over-excited thinking about his next record.

Raw and rockin', "Signs & Signifiers" is a perfect 35 minute album. Twelve tracks in all, ten of them written or co-written by McPherson, and not a slither of filler to be found. Opening cut, "North Side Gal", rattles along at a fine tempo, and features the first of many saxophone solos (courtesy of Jonathan Doyle and Josh Bell), which gives way to rough `n' ready version of Tiny Kennedy's "Country Boy", which is almost as good as the original. "Fire Bug" wouldn't sound out of place on a Tarantino soundtrack and "A Gentle Awakening" with its string arrangements, sorrowful soul vocal and measured pace provides genuine depth to a collection that'll surely appeal to old rockers, Wayne Hancock worshipers, bereaved Cramps fans and anyone who was impressed with last years Nick Curran record. 9/10.

Dollar Bill & Si Cranstoun deserve equal recognition, if you dig this album you'll go wild on these two. Check them out and check out your local rockin' venue, you'll have a ball!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars What can be said? 15 Aug 2011
By P. WEST
Format:Audio CD
You have got to be kidding me! No one can really have this much talent! Can they? I mean, can they, REALLY? You bet your buttocks, they can. At least on the evidence of this album, these guys can.
Sorry, I'm crap at writing reviews, and don't usually try, but for heavens sake, buy this and listen to something quite superb. I repeat in big letters, SUPERB!
Ooh I've come over all uneccessary. I'm gonna have to play it again. Sorry, must go.

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Quite a good album. Some songs not keen on but overall a fairly good album. Hadn't heard of this singer before until I heard it played on Radio 2. Will certainlylisten out for him again.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the most extraordinarily record 26 July 2012
By Woody
Format:Audio CD
First off, the name JD McPherson should be for the band not one individual. Jimmy Sutton on upright bass is amazing! After saying that though, the vocals from JD are amazing. One minute he's Sam Cooke on the two slowies, the next he's howling at the moon like Little Richard and John Fogerty on speed and two cups of strong coffee. In essence, if you're a fan of big band early 50s R&B, rockabilly, R&B, soul, rock n roll, ska (as in where it came from in the first place), this album is for you. For the UK readers, It's a bit like "Later With Jools Holland", but without the utterly boring crap bands.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good rockin' tonight 16 July 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was interested in this album after hearing a preview of just one song. The whole album does not disappoint, MacPherson has a great voice and the brass arrangements really lend themselves to the songs. If you dig Bo Diddley, Elvis or even The Clash then this album would be of great interest to you.

Brilliant retro rockabilly sound. Each song is a gem. In fact the only weaker one is "Country Boy" and this was not written or co written by JD McPherson. Read more
