Editorial Reviews

From the bountiful collection of Joan Jett's hits, we have culled some of her best and most popular, in Fit To Be Tied. The soaring energy and instant familiarity of these songs is a reminder of what real rock and roll feels and sounds like. This CD includes the #27 song of all time, 'I Love Rock n' Roll', along with amazing hits like 'Crimson and Clover', 'I Hate Myself For Loving You', 'Bad Reputation', 'Do You Wanna Touch Me', 'Light Of Day' (written for Joan by Bruce Springsteen)...and the list goes on. This is one of Joan's most consistently best selling albums. This CD has been re-mastered and includes enhanced material.

The songs sound fiercer, louder, edgier and just plain better than ever.

Now that Joan Jett is getting her due as a seminal rock and roll influence, it's about time a decent hits set appeared. Sadly, this isn't it. While the music on "Fit To Be Tied" certainly merits the four star rating, I am going to have to assume contractual issues with CBS forced Jett to either omit or substitute alternative versions of well-known songs.

For instance, her huge hit "I Hate Myself For Loving You" is an alternate take from the "Up Your Alley" version, and "Little Liar" is a live version. I am not sure how many versions of "Roadrunner" Joan has recorded so far, but the take here is previously unreleased and kicks butt. So does the new recording of the signature Runaways song, "Cherry Bomb." MIA are such well known Jett tunes as "Good Music" and her version of "Dirty Deeds Done Dirt Cheap." The albums she recorded for Warner Brothers are bypassed entirely.

Nonetheless, you still get some of the great proto-grrll rock from "Bad Reputation" to the terrific new "World of Denial." Joan Jett also was queen of the perfect cover choice, as her hit versions of "Everyday People," "Crimson and Clover" and - of course - "I Love Rock and Roll" prove. She also had that glam bam done like few before or since. The BOOM/whack/BOOM/whack that explodes from her cover of Gary Glitter's "Do You Wanna Touch" and her own "I Hate Myself For Loving You" made both songs burst from whatever radio played them some eight years apart. You'd be hard pressed to know that much time had passed between these songs...which proves that Joan Jett is a timeless artist.

But she deserves better.

When it comes to the best women in rock, few can compare to Joan Jett. With her powerful voice, one of a kind attitude and overall presence and energy, she is truly a force to be reckon with. With her band The Blackhearts, she scored a string of megahits throughout the 1980s', all of which are compiled on this very brief (47 minutes) but very concise best - of.

"Fit To Be Tied" contains all Joan Jett & The Blackhearts' biggest hits, including the classic "I Love Rock N Roll", "Bad Reputation", "I Hate Myself For Loving You", a live version of "Little Liar", her superior cover of Tommy James And The Shondells' "Crimson And Clover", "Cherry Bomb" and others. All the songs have been remastered, and it really shows. The songs sound fiercer, louder, edgier and just plain better than ever.

The liner notes are ntohing more than photos as well as snippets of praise from various rock figures, but who can complain when you got such great music on this cd?

Fit to be Tied is a greatest hit collection from Joan Jett and The Blackhearts. Most of the familar radio tunes are there, as well as a few deeper cuts for more serious fans. The CD captures the essence of what rock and roll ought to be, as opposed to the bubblegum pop that is often passed off as rock these days. Joan's voice and riffs hold up over time, as powerful today as they ever were. The personal highlight of the CD for me was a remake of Tommy James' Crimson and Clover, a fine reinterpretation of the period piece made all the more powerful by refusing to change gender based on singer. Victim of Circumstance was also an excellent choice for this collection, as was Fake Friends. A cut many may not have heard is the final one on the CD, Love is All Around, the theme from the Mary Tyler Moore show. Given what the MTM show meant in its day, this was an excellent choice as the final note.

JOAN JETT-FIT TO BE TIED-GREAT HITS BY JOAN JETT AND THE BLACKHEARTS: In the seventies, England had Suzi Quatro to carry the glitter rock torch for the sexier gender; in the eighties, America unleashed her sleazier, slinkier student Joan Jett. This comprehensive collection of tuff 'n trashy classics features the ex-Runaways femme fatale rippin' a page outta the Gary Glitter "BIG-RIFF-SHOUT-THE-CHORUS" trick book o' glam rock (admittedly, it was a one page book). Raucous remakes of pop cornerstones rule, from Glitter's own DO YOU WANNA TOUCH ME (OH YEAH!) and the lip smackin' bubble-glam of Tommy James' CRIMSON AND CLOVER to the Runaways' own CHERRY BOMB and a supersonic LOVE IS ALL AROUND as Mary Tyler Moore never envisioned it. Jett's own arse-kickin' compositions I HATE MYSELF FOR LOVING YOU and BAD REPUTATION sound right at home next to her career makin' cover of the Arrows' I LOVE ROCK N ROLL, a genre anthem on the level of Kiss' ROCK AND ROLL ALL NITE and Led Zep's ROCK AND ROLL. Suffice to say that when Joan Jett screams for respect, she gets it...even if she has to beat it outta ya.

RATING: FIVE "UNHHHS"

Most of Joan Jetts best stuff is on this disc and it's great music. What would the early 80's have been without "Bad Reputation", "Fake Friends" and "I Love Rock and Roll"? JJ and the Blackhearts were rock at its core with some bad chick image. I held back one star because there is plenty of blank space left on this disc and with so many excellent tunes to choose from, why couldn't we have more? If you need examples, I would have considered the following: "Nag", "You Don't Know What You've Got", "Bits and Pieces" and maybe "Jezebel". There are some covers included on this compilation but many fun covers were left off, like "Star Star", "Tossin' and Turnin", "Hanky Panky" and "Summertime Blues". I could go on - this disc is too thin and too much meaty stuff was left off. But make no mistake - the tunes that were put on here are great rock and roll!
