Product Description

JON SPENCER BLUES EXPLOSION Blues Explosion! (1995 UK 6-track mini-album CD featuring remixes by U.N.K.L.E. Beck Hansen Wu-Tang Klan Moby & Dub Narcotic housed in a digipak picture sleeve)

Amazon.co.uk

Following the creative peak that was 1994's Orange, Jon Spencer assembled a disparate group of top-drawer friends to remix some of that album's best tracks. He ended up batting just over .500 in the process. Beck and Mike D's treatment of "Flavor" is a sublime meeting of two of the '90s' hippest minds, and UNKLE's reworking of "Bellbottoms" brilliantly frames Spencer at his booty-callin' best. But the Dub Narcotic Sound System's rendering of "Soul Typecast" is painfully square, and Moby's take on "Greyhound" sounds flat and plastic. Still, Experimental Remixes deserves props for its prescience. Beck and UNKLE mainstay DJ Shadow weren't exactly toiling away in obscurity in 1995, but Spencer caught them on their ascent toward making some of the most innovative music of the postgrunge era. Keep an ear out for this album's "hidden" seventh track, a hilarious 18-minute collage of sound- check antics and awkward interviews, the soundtrack to Spencer's own personal Don't Look Back. --Matt Hanks

5.0 out of 5 stars Me like Experimental Remixes 28 Mar. 2000
By Ian Miller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This cd is filled with awesome remixes of the already great Blues Explosion songs. Killah Priest amazed me with his wonderful version of Greyhound, and while we're on the Greyhound remixes I must say that Moby added so much on his version of Greyhound, with his guitar solo and overall texture. Of all of the remix compilations that I have listened to, this was the best. This Cd actually made contributions to the songs instead of just putting a different beat to the song. I still listen to it regularly so that just shows how good it is.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not your average remix CD. 1 Sept. 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The remixes on this CD are amazing! "Bellbottoms" is transformed by U.N.K.L.E. quite well! Killah Priest was an unusual but well worth addition to "Greyhound." But the star track of the CD is "Flavor part 2," where Beck and Mike D. create something incredible. When you're like me and are a huge fan of Beck, the Beastie Boys, and Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, having them all working together on one song, it's almost spiritual! I heard a Beck that I had never heard before. I am a huge fan of this CD; how can I not be?

5.0 out of 5 stars hidden gem for jsbx fans 22 Mar. 2006
By Ryan M. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I totally disagree with the negative reviews posted here--this is NOT a throwaway album but in fact represents some of Spencer and crew's best work. The remix of "Flavor" with Beck and Mike Diamond is great, and so is Killah Priest's rap at the end of "Greyhound Part II." The UNKLE remix of "Bellbottoms" is also really good. If you can only afford one JSBX album then get Orange and then steal this one from a used CD store.

Basically, the John Spencer Blues Explosion was an exercise in postmodern fragmentation and musical recycling, and so it somehow makes sense that remixes make up some of their best work (I also like the Acme remixes better than the actual album), especially because they have such great musicians re-interpreting their work. I don't imagined that anyone slaved away in the studio for days trying to get an absolutely perfect mix, but again that's another reason why I love this record--it's just that much more punk rock. Spencer tends to get in more trouble when he's trying to get a perfectly polished sound.

Oh yeah, and the picture on the inside cover of the boys eating at some greasy spoon is priceless.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the 90's 14 Jan. 2001
By Michael Pinto - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This little gem is a true musical journey. The base material of the CD is the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, which is sort of a mixture of punk, rockabilly and blues - think Elvis meets the Sex Pistols. That alone would make a great CD, but this album is a remix which tells a sort of story. The remixes are done in many styles (from "alternative" to old style blues to hip hop) featuring guests like Beck and Killah Priest of the Wu-Tang Clan. Don't let the "remix" title fool you - this isn't Disco Star Wars, but more a case of taking the ball and running with it. The final product feels like an amazing live concert packed with a ton of energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Not conventional, but great 17 Jun. 2002
By Tine Saint-Ghislain - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This was the first album I bought from the JSBX, adn I will never regret this for the rest of my life. This album has a nice but raw sound and is loaded with laughter. If you wish to experience the magic groups have on tour, you must buy this album.
