* A specially extended reissue for the 1984 album "Barrence Whitfield And The Savages".
* Originally released on the Mamou label, this enhanced edition, co-ordinated by the album's producer (and Savage guitarist) Peter Greenberg, almost doubles the original album's 30 minute playing time.
* Tracks 14 and 15 are out-takes from the original album, while tracks 16-18 are previously unreleased earlier recordings. Tracks 19-23 are live recordings.
* The album's release in 1984 led DJ Andy Kershaw to pronounce it the greatest rock'n'roll record he had ever heard. He brought the band to the UK and Robert Plant and Elvis Costello could be seen grooving at gigs.

Barrence Whitfield and the Savages were your basic rock & roll combo, the guitar attack punctuated by some wailing saxophone. This 2010 CD reissue of the original 1984 album comes with 10 bonus tracks, a mixture of out-takes and very energetic live tracks. The CD also comes with a 16-page booklet that includes an essay about the band by John Swenson, along with some vintage photos and reproduction of old concert posters. A wonderful discovery!
Rough and raw sounding, with echoes of rockabilly
thrown into a R&B musical gumbo. Play it loud on your next long drive or short one
for that matter. Break it out at your next BBQ or houseparty and if your guests can't enjoy this disc
don't invite them back.
