Short but interesting release from the late 1980\'s by Alex Chilton, the sometimes brilliant, sometimes shambolic frontman from Big Star. There seems to be a real shortage of Chilton torrents out there - if anyone can help change this, I would be extremely grateful!
Allmusic review:This album continues to successfully mine the retro-music lodestone found in High Priest, Feudalist Tarts, and similar releases of this period. Half the songs here are blues numbers of differing stripes: \"Jailbait\" is an irresistibly rocking song featuring prominent organ and baritone saxophone that has humorous, worldly lyrics in praise of the speaker\'s underaged sweetie; \"Baby Baby Baby\" is a fine down-and-dirty slow-tempo selection with rudimentary verses; Furry Lewis\' \"I Will Turn Your Money Green\" is an enjoyably lazy, loping number. Other styles are showcased as well. The Chilton original \"Guantanamerika\" is a smooth, almost jazz-lounge-oriented ditty with ironic lyrics. A cover of \"Nice and Easy Does It\" reveals a fine song given as a sophisticated crooner\'s tune. There\'s also a bouncy, faithful cover of the 1960s surf-style car classic \"Little GTO,\" on which Chilton plays all the instruments and sings all the vocals. Sound quality is top-notch. Performances are first-rate, with as always excellent solo work from guitarist Chilton and saxophonist Jim Spake; Chilton\'s singing is a bit strained on the high notes on \"Little GTO,\" but is otherwise fine. This excellent release is strongly recommended.
