5.0 out of 5 stars Witty and catchy 27 May 2001
Format:Audio CD
Although the Kingsmen will probably be more remembered for their cover of Louie, Louie than for the other songs of their career, this album shows them as not only a band who do good covers, but also as a band who can almost totally reinvent songs to suit their style of music,
Louie, Louie was originally a hit for Richard Berry and the Pharoahs, and the original is included as a bonus track on this CD - worth listening to if you want to know what the actual words to it are; the Kingsmen version isn't great on clarity but is nevertheless a far more catchy and irreverant tune than its predecessor.
The other stars of the album would have to be Mother-in-Law, and the outstanding Jolly Green Giant - if only for the way certain members of the band shout vegetable names for the chorus at various points throughout the song.
Buy this CD - it's got a great, well-known tune (Louie Louie has now achieved immortality by being mentioned in Futurama and Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and a whole host of others which, whilst not so well known, serve both to bring a smile and to sooth the ears.
