Editorial Reviews

Dave Edmunds' music in the 80's and 90's was dominated by the wall of sound basis that he created when Jeff Lynne took over his production chores. The result was one of his most popular musical periods, following his award winning production work for The Stray Cats and the breakup of Rockpile. This disc compiles many of those great tracks plus live versions of earlier hits.

Customer Reviews

His originals are good too with his sterling and very distinctive guitar work.
Amazon Customer
Nonetheless, a lot of great rock and pop artists emerged from "new wave" and Dave Edmunds was one of the shining talents.

As I approached my new dorm room, I realized that the music was coming from my room.

A nice collection of Mid 70's to early 80's songs...probably his most prolific and best-selling period. This contains some great covers including Graham Parker's "Crawling From the Wreckage", Hank DeVito's "Queen of Hearts" ( I believe this version was the original and better than the hit version of Juice Newton's), and John Fogerty's "Almost Saturday Night". His originals are good too with his sterling and very distinctive guitar work. Not as thorough as the "Anthology" but pretty good. It's still a crime that his first American solo album with "I Hear You Knocking" on which he plays everthing has not been released on CD.

Well, so you want to know what all the fuss over this `new wave' was all about? In April 1978, as I was riding the bus to get to class across town on the new Amherst campus, I read an interesting and very long record review in the UB (University of Buffalo) student run newspaper, "The Spectrum". This wasn't the usual one paragraph capsule record review, since "the Spectrum"'s editors gave the writer a full page for the article. Apparently a fellow student had gone back home to Long Island for spring break and while there he/she got caught up in the excitement of four newly released albums that, when taken as a whole, looked and sounded like the British "new wave" had finally arrived on our beer can littered shores. The records raved about were, Elvis Costello's "This Year's Model", "New Boots and Panties" by Ian Dury, "Pure Pop for Now People" by Nick Lowe and "Stiffs Live" by well...Live Stiffs. So am I leading you on a wild goose chase by this recollection of some obscure article in a college newspaper and what does it have to do with, "The Best of Dave Edmunds"? Well, what the Spectrum article's writer valiantly tried and nearly succeeded in doing, was to accurately describe what the "new wave" was. No doubt, this genre was a slippery fish since "new wave" in its' delirious halcyon days in 1978, encompassed snot nosed punks, oafish louts, trouble boys and more than just a few lecherous young men who could play fast rhythm guitar licks that were welcome bursts of noise standing in sharp contrast to the mechanized disco and the flaccid soft rock that by and large ruled the radio airwaves.Read more ›

When I purchased this album I was disapointed.The best tracks on the album were done live, instead of the original studio recordings. It should be stipulated on the front cover that several songs are not the original version. Camden is a budget record label so this is probably to be expected.

Dave Edmunds is a master.He takes old fashioned Rock n Roll and lays it down in a way that shows the true greatness of it all never gets old.His twang and rhythm are in the same tradition of Elvis,Jerry Lee etc., yet done in an electric/crafty way that can capture the attention and likeability of most any listener.Along with his buddy Nick Lowe from Rockpile as well as on his own,he out did all the others in bringing this kind of stuff alive all over again.Unless you were stuck in that mini-era of synthesizers about "the earth and the mountains" enough to believer it was superior(I call it an anti rock movement),you too will call this music the best of its kind anywhere.

This CD covers tracks from the 1977 album 'Get It', the 1978 album 'Tracks on Wax 4' the 1979 album 'Repeat when necessary' and the the 1981 album 'Twangin'. There isn't a bad track on it and whilst it doesn't have 'I hear you knockin'' its still a brilliant collection.

Edmunds is a vastly under-rated musician and singer. He was the musical director of the Carl Perkins special in the 80's and his distinctive nasal singing voice is unmistakable. Here you get rock 'n' roll on many tracks, a hint of blues (singin' the blues), rockabilly (assisted by the Stray Cats on the 'Race is on'). Not only that Edmunds has some good songwriters prepared to let him record their material: Elvis Costello, John Fogerty, Nick Lowe and Graham Parker to name a few. Hes not a bad rock 'n' roll writer himself as 'A.1. On the Juke Box' shows.

Its amazing to think that these recordings were made during the punk / new wave movement but I suppose doing straightforward rock 'n' roll was as much a rebellion as Punk in its own way. If you like good old-fashioned rock 'n' roll you will love this.

Never knew he had some of these great hits. Very good CD. Needs to be in the to-go box for roadtrips.
