Dave Edmunds All Star Rock ’N’ Roll Revue

What can you say about this awesome show!

Dave Charles - drums
Phil Chen - bass
Steve Cropper - guitar, vocals
Dave Edmunds - guitar, keyboards, vocals
Cecilia Gardtman - vocals
Terry Williams - drums
Gavin Polby - keyboards
Horn Section: Miami Horns
Guest: Graham Parker - vocals
Guest: Kim Wilson - vocals
Guest: Dion - vocals

Dave Edmunds had seen the hoopla surrounding Ringo Starr & His All Starr Band tour in 1989, when the former Beatle gathered a group of celebrity musician friends to form a touring band playing songs from the Fab Four, his solo hits, and all the best loved hits of the individual group members. The Starr tour had such a positive response that Edmunds decided he would try something similar.

Dave Edmunds All Star Rock ’N’ Roll Revue gathered a quirky but powerful bunch of musical allies, many of whom had worked with Edmunds in the studio or in collaboration. Graham Parker (who had worked often with Edmunds and his cohort Nick Lowe), Fabulous Thunderbird lead vocalist Kim Wilson (who had collaborated with him), and ‘50s/’60s pop icon Dion were all part of the caravan of rock innovators that hit the road in the spring of 1990.

Although it was never released stateside, this show did eventually make it to record as a double disc in Japan only. In America, the show was broadcast in an abbreviated version on the King Biscuit Flower Hour, but this is the entire set and what a show it is. Opening with “Last Night,” a song originally recorded in 1961 by the Mar-Keys (the original Stax label studio session band that included Steve Cropper on guitar), it begins and ends with a sampling of Dave Edmunds’ best work, including “I Knew The Bride When She Used To Rock and Roll,” “I Hear You Knockin'“(his 1971 solo hit), “Ju-Ju Man,” “Crawling From The Wreckage,” and “Small Things Mama,” which had been written expressly for Edmunds by his friend Bruce Springsteen.

The rest of the performance is a variety show that never stops delivering. The Edmunds band was truly an all-star outing, with guitarist Steve Cropper (Booker T & The MGs, Blues Brothers), Terry Williams (ex-Rockpile), Phil Chen (ex-Rod Stewart), the Memphis Horns, and others. Some of the material was catered to the band members’ involvement (such as “Dock Of The Bay,” which Cropper had written with Otis Redding).

The special guests, however, contribute the bulk of the big hits. Wilson reprises his cover of Sam & Dave’s “Wrap It Up” (which the Thunderbirds also had a radio hit with). He also sings their biggest hit, “Tuff Enuff.” Dion, whose career began on the doo-wop street corners of the Bronx, NY in the 1950s with the Belmonts, delivers hits that spanned a dozen years, and included “Ruby Baby,” “Runaround Sue,” “The Wanderer,” and the poignant “Abraham, Martin & John,” which he released weeks after the assassination of Martin Luther King.

The most memorable of all the performances, hands down, goes to Graham Parker, the gritty British pub-rock icon. From the slow drive of “Local Girls,” to post-punk pop of “Slash & Burn,” to the pure urgency of “Soul Time” and “Heat Treatment,” Parker turns in a performance as strong as the early live shows he recorded with his old band, the Rumour.

The entire cast winds down the performance with a rollicking re-make of the Little Richard classic, “You Keep A Knockin'.” To hear such a classic song performed by this great ensemble of musicians, singers, and performers, is exhilarating, to say the least.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
