Brian Setzer Orchestra, Bryan Adams, Moist

Brian Setzer Orchestra – Vavoom!

Fantastic swing jump blues big band dance music (now there’s a mouthful). Nice mix of covers and originals and that guitar, too. Oh man, and what a smokin’ band behind him. Long live the swing revival! And for all of that, he still sounds, at times, like the Stray Cats. It’s a cool mix, that sound. I liked the original blend of old and new on In The Mood (Gettin’ In The Mood). Fun times! … Listening to this sort of thing reminds me of when I listened to jazz and swing almost exclusively and it makes me miss it, as though all the metal and punk and rock since then is great, but (perhaps) not where my heart truly lies. We never forget our first love.

Moist – Silver

Essential mid-90s CanCon. These guys were everywhere, and with great reason. Solid rock tunes, and David Usher’s distinctive voice, ensured that. Big hits like Push and Silver are engrained in our brains, yet the rest of the record is just as solid. I loved the piano all over this record. This band had an instantly recognizeable sound.

Bryan Adams – Waking Up The Neighbours

Looking back now, it’s easy to see how, over the years, Mutt Lange turned Bryan Adams into Shania Twain into Def Leppard… The only thing missing here, then, is more exclamation points on the song titles. But back in 1991 I loved this CD, I played it to death. We saw this tour, in London (with Sass Jordan, Extreme and Steve Miller Band). These are still strong songs, that knack for a tune and a lyric is still here and as strong as ever. Loaded with hits and shoulda-beens. This album is really satisfying, in that way, for fans (like me) of his early work. This thing was HUGE.
