4.0 out of 5 stars Musical failure never bothered him, 5 Sep 2013
This review is from: Call of the Wild (Audio CD)
To be honest the name Arlie Neavall is a ton better than Dean Carter who is known in the U K as the author of a book about the Pennine Way.He may even have been confused by Aaron Neville who at the time was an obscure New Orleans artist not really known till the 70s
First discovered on a blog and available to illegally download I added it to my pen drive but usually end up buying a lot of these when I find them.
Its worth having as its a link between the 50s and 60s especially the garage bands
And there's no doubt that Dean Carter is infamous in the States as he's a serial killer on Death Row!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild Thing, 29 Oct 2012
This review is from: Call of the Wild (Audio CD)
A man out of time - the 1960s - Dean Carter (real name Arlie Neaville) was an obscure genius. You want Elvis meets Jerry Lee meets early Beatles and Stones? Then you've got a bit of Dean Carter. Throw in a slice of Eddie Cochran, a pinch of the Shangri-las with a twist of Screaming Jay Hawkins and you've got another bit. Chuck in some Dave Clarke Five, early Motown and a whole heap of garage rock and you've got a bit more!

Although a couple of tracks here were recorded in 1959 most come from the mid-to-late 60s. Only a few tracks were actually released at the time, with sales abysmally poor. But then this WAS the height of The Summer Of Love - hardly a popular time for someone looking like a ten year throwback with an unclassifiable portfolio of work.

This compilation kicks off with a blistering 'wig-out' of 'Jailhouse Rock'; it's so incendiary it makes Elvis look like a choirboy. There's some distinct throat-shredding on 'Mary Sue' and 'Sizzlin Hot' whilst the Doors-meets-Northern Soul (!) of 'Call Of The Wild' should have been a big hit single. Elsewhere things get a little bit Monkees crossed with The Addams Family! One of the greatest tracks is 'Shadow Of Evil', where the ghosts of Roy Orbison, Gene Pitney and Billy Fury are channelled for a heart-wrenching ballad.

If you like 'outsider' music (think The Cramps, Iggy, Beefheart, Alice Cooper, The Fall, Ramones, Johnny Dowd etc.)then you'll love this. It's bonkers and all the better for it!
