I've been a keen Springsteen fan for 20 years. Clarence Clemons needs no introduction to anyone who likes Bruce's music or has seen the E Street Band live.

I bought 'Rescue' on vinyl soon after its original release and have listened to it regularly over the years. All the tracks are good, but 'Savin' up' and 'Resurrection Shuffle' are my personal favourites. The songs are strong, the sound is great and it's a must for all fans of the Jersey Sound.

'Hero' isn't quite so good, but does have a couple of really good tracks, especially 'The sun ain't gonna shine anymore' and 'You're a friend of mine'.

If you're a fan of Springsteen/Southside Johnny and enjoy listening to the saxophone played by the best there is, this one is a must.

Format: Audio CD
Radio 1 in the 1970s was a barren desert of good music. There were notable exceptions not least John Peel and Jonnie Walker but we also forget at our peril the Saturday rock show played by the great Alan "Fluff" Freeman. In those days before PCs, downloading and instant access to music it was the radio to which a penniless and very disillusioned factory worker in the South Wales valleys turned for a taste of another more exciting world. On one of those afternoons Freeman played Bruce Springsteen's "Jungleland" from "Born to Run" which miraculously I recorded on an old cassette machine and commenced to wear the tape out over the next year. Like similar experiences for other music fans I had found "my Elvis" but this time there was also the rare good fortune for him to be accompanied by one of the greatest bands ever and a saxophonist who was in effect the "John Coltrane of rock" the dearly departed Clarence Clemons, The Big Man.

There is a point in "Jungleland" which transcends music and moves into legend. Springsteen has just played a raucous guitar solo and sings a verse at around 3.30 which concludes with the lines "Lonely-hearted lovers struggle in dark corners/Desperate as the night moves on, just a look and a whisper, and they're gone". At which point in comes an enormous, howling, bellowing note from Clarence Clemons on a roaring tenor sax which as much as Gershwin did in "Rhapsody in blue", effortlessly captures a New York street ambience that words can barely describe. He then proceeds to blow the greatest sax solo in rock music history for a glorious two minutes which I'm proud to say that 35 years later I can barely listen to without being reduced to tears, it still moves so much and cuts so deeply.

I had this on vinyl originally and have forgotten what a fantastic album Rescue is. Had to buy this after hearing that the Big Man has gone. My wife who is no Springsteen fan and not heard this before loves it!

This is Clarence, he blows your mind, his Tenor sax sounds like an Alto on steroids, I'm surprised he's not blown it straight, then he plays a wispy lyrical melody and you know this guy was on top of his game.

Rescue gets a solid 4 stars to Hero's 2 stars! 24 Oct. 1999
By Jeff Sica ( - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Having both of these releases on vinyl for years, I've really enjoyed the clear, crisp sound of both on CD. The raw strength and R&B power of RESCUE certainly outshines the pop commercialism of HERO. Clarence's rock and roll saxability is starkly evident on both, but a little too bubblegumish on HERO. J.T.Bowen's raw vocals on RESCUE wonderfully complement Clarence's powerful sax. One can only wonder what else we may have gotten out of the Red Bank Rockers (a superb "bar band" on the Jersey music scene in the early '80s) had they assembled a second collection of their rock/R&B fused sound.

This is A+ party soul music. Okay, I don't know HERO very well, except for the very nice single "You're A Friend of Mine." But RESCUE --- Wow!! An amazing and overlooked album, brimming with soul. This is an album I bought on vinyl back in the 80s and kept checking back to see if it was out on CD for more than decade. Check out "Money to the Rescue" and "A Woman's Got the Power" for starters. Classics that hold their own with Atlantic-Stax. Cut in the mid 80s, this is great 60s-70s dance music, the ballads are fine make-out music. Note: Clarence does not do the vocals, but he wisely found a singer who's as good with his voice as the big man is with his sax. J.T. Bowen. He belongs in the pantheon with Otis, Sam & Dave and Wilson Pickett. If you love soul, you will love this album. If you love Springsteen and Seger and Mellencamp you will love this album.

get this one and play it loud~~THANK YOU AND R.I.P., CLARENCE CLEMONS !!! 19 Jun. 2011
By Matthew G. Sherwin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
If you want to listen to some REALLY good music, get this CD and turn up the volume! Sadly, Clarence Clemons died today; but just in case you needed any proof of his immortality as a musician this two-fer album will lay those fears to rest! Clarence outdoes even himself on these excellent tracks and that's grand.

We get all of the songs from two of Clarence's record albums entitled "Rescue" and "Hero." What music this is! "Jump Start My Heart" has a great beat; Clarence does this with lots of style. "Rock 'N' Roll DJ;" "Money to the Rescue;" "A Woman's Got the Power;" "A Man in Love" and others like "Heartache #99" sound strong even today and that impresses me. "You're a Friend of Mine" got a lot of airplay when it was first released; it made the airwaves sizzle and I love it every time I hear it!

The rest of the tracks continue to showcase the genius of Clarence Clemons. "It's Alright with Me Girl" is yet another one of these fine numbers; in fact there's really not a bad track in the lot! "Liberation Fire" is pretty awesome, too.

Clarence Clemons may have died today; but he lives on through his music both as a soloist and a member of Bruce Springsteen's band. We are all better off for Clarence having shared his incredible artistry with us!

From The Big Man 24 Jan. 2012
By P Magnum - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The late, great Clarence Clemons was of course best known as the sax player and right hand man to Bruce Springsteen in the E Street Band. But he did record some music of his own, first with 1983's Rescue and then the follow-up in 1985, Hero. Rescue was recorded with his backing band at the time The Red Bank Rockers. They were the house band at the Big Man's short-lived club, Big Man's West in Red Bank, NJ. The album is classic Jersey Shore music, mixing rock & soul. The lead vocals are handled by JT Bowen and he adds a Gary 'US' Bonds style grit to the sound. The best known song from the album is a cover the obscure group, The A's "A Woman's Got the Power". Its features a blazing sax from Mr. Clemons. "Jump Start My Heart" has a harder edge while "A Man In Love" is a soul belter. "Savin' Up" was written by Mr. Springsteen and it has a similar sound to the music he was producing for Mr. Bonds at the time. "Resurrection Shuffle" has a Wilson Pickett "Land Of A 1000 Dances" feel and is a real burner. For Hero, Mr. Clemons decided to take over lead vocal duties. He has a deep voice that isn't terrible, but is better suited for the background as opposed to the lead. The album also veers away from the rock & soul sound and dives head first into 80's pop. The album's big hit and Mr. Clemons only solo chart appearance is his duet with Jackson Browne that kicks off the album, "You're A Friend Of Mine". It's a nice slice of 80's music that has held up pretty well. "Temptation" has a gritty sound while "Liberation Fire" is an aggressive instrumental with some powerful sax work. "I Wanna Be Your Hero" is an up-tempo number while "Cross That Line" has a yearning feel. "Kissin' On U" is a goofy number filled with braggadocio that is the worst track on the album. The album's closer "Christina" is an ode to his wife at the time and is a great closer.

Incredible album 5 April 2009
By Joey P - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I got this for CD "Rescue" album I have, but was wearing out. Great to have it on a CD. If you like older Springsteen and like that "horn" sound mixed with good rock, this is a musthave CD. The songs are simple, with a beat and have soul. I got this back in '83 when it came out, and I still listen to it today.
