This review is from: Subtle As A Flying Mallet (Audio CD)
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.
