Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels - Rev Up The Best of...(Rhino Records)

I know that this white r’n’b sensation needs no introduction – if you don’t know who this man and this band is then you’ve been living in a cave for the last few decades!

This is a nice best-of collection – again, for me this purchase was a way to get the hits on one convenient CD, rather than getting all of the albums on CD.

The hits are all accounted for here – “Jenny Take a Ride”, “Little Latin Lupe Lu”, “Shakin’ With Linda”, “Break-Out!”, “Devil With a Blue Dress/Good Golly Miss Molly”, “Sock it to Me Baby!”, “I’d Rather Go to Jail” and many more – including Mitch’s version of Lour Reed’s “Rock’n’Roll” with his band called Detroit.

If you don’t already own anything by this pioneer of high-energy white r’n’b/r’n’r, then this is a great starting point. Or if, like me, you just want the hits all in one place, this is the place! One way or another, everyone needs some Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels!
