Product Description

Dave Edmunds 1975 classic rock n roll album reissued with Edmunds full cooperation and input , plus bonus material from Edmunds archive. Subtle As A Flying Mallet was Edmunds second solo LP and its release was preceded by two tracks making top 5 single hits, Baby I Love You and Born To Be With You. The flavour of Subtle As A Flying Mallet is retro rock n roll, something Edmunds is particularly good at re-producing in his own style. The bonus tracks are the two non LP B-sides, plus the tracks recorded by Edmunds for the Stardust film soundtrack making their reissue debut. Most of the recordings on the LP, plus all the bonus session tracks were recorded by Edmunds playing every instrument. Presented in digipak with sleeve-notes including an interview with Edmunds. Album newly re-mastered from the RCA master tapes.

I have been really disappointed by the murkiness of the sound quality of most of the other Dave Edmunds compilations, I love this one. Sit back, grab a large (Penderyn) whiskey and play "Born To Be You" loud! It's almost as close to heaven that an aging rocker can get.......

Apart from numerous compilations, CDs of Dave Edmunds original 1970s and 1980s albums have been few and far between.

Maybe at last someone is taking a lead and re-assessing Dave Edmunds back catalogue. 'Subtle As A Flying Mallet' was something of a 'lost' album coming between the cart success of 'I Hear You Knocking' and 'Girl's Talk'. Very much a one-man band at the time, Dave recreates with skill and feeling, the sounds of his heroes from the 60s and 50s.

The original album is made even better with the addition of the long unavailable tracks he created for the David Essex film 'Stardust' and excellent informative booklet filling the background to how the album was created.

If you like Dave Edmunds, you will enjoy this re-issue; if you don't know Dave, but like good old rock and roll and 60s music, you should not be disappointed.

this is an ace cd dave Edmunds produced a great run of retro rock albums solo and with rockpile.
it's time they reformed and toured again like a lot of lesser talents.
I saw them live once supporting Robert plant at the top rank on his first solo tour.
this cd includes the tracks performed by the stray cats in the movie stardust.
i'm not sure if david Essex's vocals are included, or they are Edmund's demos.
if so this should be heavily promoted for more sales.
remember when skirts went up and hair came down!

As a younger man I had this on cassette as well as having the singles. I always wanted the instrumental b side Pick axe rag on cd, and here it is at last. Brilliant & thank you.

This has to be Dave's best effort ever. When you think of the loving care and attention he has put into every track one must sit back and appreciate what a talent he is.
RPM,as usual, have done a lovely job with this reissue and all I can say is that you should have this cd in your collection as it truly jumps out of the speakers under the hand of a true Master.
Bonus tracks are thoughtfully included and the booklet notes are as informative as always from RPM.

I bought this CD as a replacement for my original tape version. This expanded album represents a good overview of Dave Edmunds work. Dave is without doubt an 'Unsung Hero'.
