Overview

Dig it -- what could be better than one great Robert Gordon CD compilation? How about a second great Robert Gordon compilation? When Bear Family came out with Robert Gordon Is Red Hot in 1989, it marked the rockabilly king's official debut in the digital domain (assuming one doesn't count New Rose's Live at Lone Star, issued the same year). And it was pretty amazing hearing 25 songs from Gordon's prime early period, on Private Stock and RCA, assembled together in an hourlong riot of rockabilly sounds. But this collection is every bit as good, tying up a few loose ends (the studio rendition of "Fire," etc.) and delving into Gordon's highly successful resurrection of a couple of classics out of U.K. rock & roll ("Picture of You," "Bad Boy"), plus his killer renditions of standards such as "Sea Cruise" and a live version of "Black Slacks." Roy Orbison gets acknowledged here on "Uptown," and listeners get to hear Gordon's more mature, country-oriented sound from late in his RCA period. Whatever the particulars, there's not a wasted note or even a flaccid sound anywhere on this CD, the sound is excellent, and if Colin Escott has a little less to say here, that's mostly because he did such a good job on the notes for the earlier CD.
