  • Credits

    The second volume of collected interviews and recordings by and with the arranger and producer Jack Nitzsche is an invaluable trawl through his considerable three-decade back catalog of projects. It unearths gems like Merry Clayton's (the female voice on the Rolling Stones' "Gimme Shelter") version of "It's in His Kiss," and Nitzsche's own previously unreleased spy-movie type instrumental, "Surf Finger," as well as the Everly Brothers performing Neil Young's "Mr. Soul." Other rarities include the Monkees' recording of Fred Neil's "Porpoise Song," the Tubes' 1970s punk homage to Phil Spector's 1960s Wall of Sound "Don't Touch Me There," and Captain Beefheart lending his ineffable growl to the collection's title track, taken from the movie BLUE COLLAR.

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.120) - 4 stars out of 5 -- "Best Track award is a toss up between The Everly Brothers' dreamy, seductive take on Jack's old roomie's 'Mr. Soul' or the jaw-dropping collaboration between John Lee Hooker, Taj Mahal and Miles Davis..."
