Editorial Reviews

Product Description

None other than Wayne Kramer labels this collection of rarities "the best of MC5," and when you hear such goodies as the infamous uncensored version of Kick Out the Jams , we wager you'll agree!

Format: Audio CD
This fifteen track disc is a nifty collection of remixes, demos, and uncensored edits from MC 5's lead guitarist Wayne Kramer's own private vault. All these cuts were recorded from 1966-71. Their other guitarist was the late Fred 'Sonic' Smith, who sings lead on the pleasant-sounding "Shaking Street". I sincerely hope that my copy doesn't wear out 'cause I tend to play it quite often. Simply love the TOTALLY ripping uncensored "Kick Out The Jams....Mutha.......". Vocalist Rob Tyner sounds like he's having the time of his life. Also enjoyed the wailing guitar line on "Gold" and not to mention their moving cover of Van Morrison's "I Can Only Give You Everything". The final two songs are the best this CD has to offer,"I Just Don't Know" and "Looking At You" are early numbers the band played when they FIRST formed. Only down side is that since Smith is gone and Tyner has passed on as well means that there can never be a true MC 5 reunion. Great sound.

"Babes In Arms" is a phenomenol compilation of the MC 5's music. If you are really keen on the MC5, I believe every one of their albums is worth picking up. If you are not an obsessive CD collector and/or want just one good sampling of their music, I would have to pick a dead-on tie between this album and their live CD "Kick Out the Jams." (the title cut from that live album is included in this collection.)In fact...on second thought, just ONE of these albums is not sufficient for a minimal MC5 collection, BOTH albums are essential!
Listening to songs like "Sister Ann" (awesome lyrics about a thoroughly unorthodox religious babe!) and "Sonically Speaking" leave you wishing this great Detroit band never broke up. This Cd makes me want to turn everybody I know on to their underrated library of music.

The MC-5 [Motor City Five] was the real deal. The electricity rips through these recordings, opening you up to a new understanding of "rock music". Of course, the blues influence is also here as in all great rock music. Distortion guitar at it's primal majesty. Real vocals that meant something then, though the message may be a bit dated today. Also, try Iggy and the Stooges for a taste of what real rock music is all about.

I first heard the MC5 in 1974, after they had broken up. But they sounded so raw, so vital, I couldn't believe the band wasn't still out there somewhere roaring away. I'm glad Rhino, God bless 'em, have released a greatest hits collection, but this ROIR CD (I used to have the cassette) is as good a collection, rarities speaking. From the delightful version of "Shaking Street" to the murky "Gold", this band travelled far and wide in just a few years. I'm glad Wayne Kramer, Dennis Thompson and Mike Davis are still around.
