Comments to album The Speedos - It's Only Rock'n'Roll
Tisicai
First released in 1989, It's Only Rock'n'roll was until this reissue only available on vinyl and I suppose long out of print.
This quartet could be described as the German cousins of the British Keytones.
They play doo-wop harmonies with a bit of jive on a rockabilly background. There's even some hillbilly with their uptempo cover of Cotton Fields.
Like numerous debut album, it's not without flaws, but the few minor imperfections are well compensated by the freshness of their approach.
The repertoire goes from Frankie Lymon (I'm Not A Juvenile Delinquent) to the Del-Vikings (Come Go With Me) or Frank Sinatra (Fly Me To The Moon) with a couple of originals too written by lead singer/guitarist Olaf Prinz. On a couple of songs the line-up (guitar / doublebass / drums / saxophone) is augmented by Götz Alsmann on piano for a fuller sound.
As an added bonus, Part has included the band's debut ep from 1987 featuring a self penned song (I Just Want To Know) and three covers: Sh-Boom, John Denver's Take Me Home Country Roads and a rockabilly-doo-wop rendition of Neil Sedaka's The Diary.
