Jody Reynolds was an American rock and roll singer, guitarist, and songwriter whose song "Endless Sleep" was a major U.S. top-ten hit in the summer of 1958. His follow-up single, "Fire of Love", peaked at only #66 on the Billboard chart, but the song went on to become a blues-punk classic after being covered by the MC5. Reynolds was a regular on the "oldies" circuit and a successful businessman in the U.S. Southwest. Beginning in the 1980s several compilations of his music were issued in the U.S. and Europe, and he enjoyed modest acclaim as a pioneer of rockabilly music. In 1999 Reynolds was honored with both a Golden Palm Star on the Palm Springs, California, Palm Springs Walk of Stars and induction into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
This album starts from a single idea: putting a rhythmic groove and a bassline and adding the sounds of Jody Harris and Robert Quine to it. The result: gold. I am currently enjoying this very much, it sounds like the wet dream of everything electronic and rhythmic. Techno and house have nuthing to claim, this album is huge, visionary, and noisy. The ”sheets of sound” on this album are nothing short of remarkable, and if one passes over the occasionally too synthetic-sounding drums, we have a winner. – Moritat
