4.0 out of 5 stars Pub Rock Trailblazers 1 Mar 2008
Format:Audio CD
Brinsley Schwarz were named after their lead guitarist, surprisingly enough called Brinsley Schwarz but are most remembered for songwriter, bassist and lead singer, Nick Lowe. Nick was to later find fame as solo artist and in-house producer of the fledgling Stiff record label however he served his apprenteship with the Brinsleys as did their manager and later Stiff Boss, Dave Robinson.

The Brinsleys were an amateur band when Dave took over managing them and instigated what is still considered to be the worst publicity stunt the music industry has ever witnessed. Dave booked the band to play the Fillmore in New York and flew out the British rock press to cover the event. The thirty six hour journey overshadowed the bands performance and the rest of the bands career was spent trying to live the event down.

In living down the `hype' that was dogging them they started playing in pubs, most noticeably the Tally Ho and the Hop and Anchor unwittingly giving birth to the Pub Rock movement which eventually gave way to Punk and New Wave which both Nick and Dave would capitalise on with the formation of Stiff.

However before then we have the five album career of the Brinsleys which has been condensed into this single CD compilation for our entertainment and listening pleasure. Everyone of the twenty tracks assembled here are classics and picking out favourite would be pointless but I'm going to single out `Happy Doing What We're Doing', `Play that Fast Thing (One More Time)' and `(What's so Funny Bout) Peace, Love and Understanding' as not just the greatest songs in the Brinsley cannon but amongst the greatest songs of all time. It's amazing what you can find in pubs, I found a wife but that really is another story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Britain's Answer to the Band 7 Jun 2006
Format:Audio CD
I only found out about Brinsley Schwartz very recently when a friend recommended them but they really were worth the wait. I really can't believe they've not been more succesful (although their very entertaining sleeve notes help explain to some degree why massive success eluded them...) Each song has a great hook and some wonderful harmonies, coupled with first rate musicianship (some mean Hammond Organ in particular) infused with a wide range of influences from Dylan, the Byrds, The Band, a little bit of Calypso and some wonderful jazzy blues. Worth a gamble if you're into any of the above.

4.0 out of 5 stars The gentle sound of Pub Rock 30 July 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Must confess... it was the price that sold it. Twenty Golden Mouth-watering Moments for less than a quid, back in the Seventies.
And that Hammond/Leslie sound ...Surrender to the Rhythm.

Maybe not something you'd play that much, but good value , unpretentious stuff.

Music how it should be! Takes me back, but some of the tracks could be released today and not be out of place. Musicianship at it's finest!
