3.0 out of 5 stars Vintage Page pix hawk classic spy-jazz April 21, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The stunning foldout packaging features dozens of classic Irving Klaw photos of Betty Page at the very pinnacle of her modeling career. The disc itself, naturally, has absolutely nothing to do with Page, Klaw, or burlesque. Instead, this is an excellent collection of 22 tracks of "spy jazz." Dramatic, horn-driven arrangements, heavy on the percussion (bongos and tympani abound) and twangy early-60s guitars. The lack of liner notes leaves the origins of these tracks to the listener's imagination, but given the titles (e.g., "Path of Crime" "Johnny's Dive" "The Big Strip" and the title track, "Danger Girl") one can conjure up some great sources. The composer list will be unfamiliar to all but avid soundtrack collectors, with John Barry (Bond films and an extensive career in movie scores) being the best known. The obscurity of the music's origins, however, only adds to the overall air of this package's mystery.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Unique, Intoxicating Mixed Album February 18, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Months ago, I purchased Liam Howlett's 'Dirtchamber Sessions vol.1', and have since been searching for continuous DJ mixes of equal or greater caliber. Aside from a few pearls here and there(i.e. the Chemical Brothers 'Brothers Gonna Work it Out'), the search has not had much luck. My luck changed, though, when I came across this album the other day, and knew immediatly that I must have it. This album, once I began listening to it, completely shattered any expectations I had previously held for a techno album. This is one of the few CDs I've purchased lately that I am TRULY happy with. 'Hello Friends' is by far my favorite work from Dangers yet, and (in my humble opinion) should be what other dj mixes are compared to in the future.

This is the first release in a trilogy using betty's pics to market the cd. The pics are all by Irving Klaw and well done. The booklet is worth the price alone...well almost. The music is all instrumental bond/burlesque style melodies. You've heard some of it on tv commercials. Its snappy! Very well done and nicely displayed!

A side Project from "Meat Beat Manifesto" frontman `Jack Dangers'....differs slightly from his Meat Beat Manifesto work, as it has a more Trip-Hop / Dub feel to it....the usual trademarks of Complex Breaks & Beats, with snippets of Dialogue still remain, but here it's direction takes a slightly less hurried approach here, with a more hypnotic sound. Case in point track 8 ("D.U.B. Dub") weaves wonderful Dub instrumentation with arranged breakbeats to joyous effect...and the move into track 9 "Elegant Dub", is virtually seamless...the mixing also deserves a mention, with its rough & ready approach, contrasting wonderfully with each track, and thus creating something that feels like a superior mix tape mish-mash, and although this is a solo album, it compares extremely favourably with the best of his `Meat Beat Manifesto' work. But be warned....this is not 'Meat Beat Manifesto' insofar as this is ideally suited to home consumption, and if the idea of a Predominately dub influenced album with the usual smatter of vocal dialogue appeals, then this will ultimately appeal that those looking for a smoke-fuelled variation on the IDM (Intelligent Dance Music) genre.

4.0 out of 5 stars Forget the naysayers; you can dance to this January 6, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Jack Dangers, aka Meat Beat Manifesto, serves up 15 mixed tracks on this release. In a way, one could argue that MBM, more than just about anyone, paved the way for a generation of electro-breakbeat with the single song "Helter Skelter." That said, this disc lacks much of the trademark noisy bluster of some MBM releases - not entirely a bad thing - but still leaves the foot tapping. Parts of the non-stop mix tend to drag a bit, but on the whole I found the combination of crisp breakbeats, bongos and weird vocal samples to be quite engaging. More importantly, one can hear Dangers' signature on the work. In a genre of music that is often cookie-cutter and/or anonymous in its presentation, 'Hello Friends' reminds you that, at its best, electronic music has a detectable heartbeat underneath the cold machinery, particularly in the hands of a mixmaster like Jack Dangers.
