Duane Eddy 21/2/1999

Review

A pioneer in instrumental rock, Duane Eddy remains an anomaly in popular music. Eddy's distinctive "twangy" guitar style complemented the infectious dance beats of his band and drove the viewers of Dick Clark's American Bandstand television show wild, even without a vocalist. This brings up the notion that perhaps pop music fans don't always require the presence of a lead singer; maybe all they look for is musical charisma, and this Eddy supplied in spades. Have "Twangy" Guitar, Will Travel was the first LP released by Eddy and his partners at Jamie Guyden Records. Recorded in 1959, this LP contains 12 rowdy rock & roll classics, including "Cannonball," "Ramrod," "The Lonely One," and "Moovin' 'N' Groovin'," all of which were successful singles. Other songs, such as the sauntering "Detour" and the dark, brooding "Stalkin'," round out the set list nicely. A mix of early rock & roll, swing, country, and blues, Have "Twangy" Guitar, Will Travel is a great example of '50s instrumental pop. ~ Rovi Staff
