Pop New - LP NER3024 Total Energy
Sealed 1999 Original. “Thirty-Odd Years After Davie Allan's "Blues Theme" Gave Him His Only Top 40 Hit, The Fuzzmeister's Still At It, His Guitar Skills Undiminished. This Nearly All-Original Set Isn't Really Much Different From Those Vintage '60s Recordings, Actually, Except For The More Modern Production Feel, Particularly In The Gunshot Kick Of The Drums (Which Is Not Necessarily A Great Thing). The Opening Medley, Stringing Together A Redone "Blues Theme" And "The Born Losers Theme," Is Probably A Guaranteed Crowd-Pleaser For Those Who Love Allan's Biker Soundtracks And Want More Of The Same. And This Disc Could Use More Variety, Like Much Instrumental Rock Could. But There Are Some Tracks That Show Allan Capable Of Things Other Than Ominous Fuzz, Like The Impressive Sustain Lines Of "Encounter," A Hint Of Metallic Boogie In "Fast & Loose," Spy-Rock ("James Bond Theme/Goldfinger"), And The Country-Blues Of "Dakota." Overall, This Is Much Like A Modern Link Wray Or Dick Dale Album: Not As Good As The Original Classics, But Not Too Dissimilar From Them Either (Except That Wray And Dale Are More Imaginative Players And Composers). It's Best When It's Most Melodically Haunting, As On The Standout "Peyote." - Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide... more details
 
Allan, Davie / Arrows - Blues Theme Blues Theme
Psych New - LP DT 5078 Tower
Sealed 1967 Stereo Original. “"Blues Theme" Is Arguably The Most Famous Track By Davie Allan & The Arrows. It Was Recorded Quickly On Mike Curb's Tower Label For The Soundtrack To The Move Wild Angels -- Peter Fonda's First Biker Flick And Just Before Easy Rider. With Wild, Screaming Fuzz Guitar And A Surf Beat, It Signifies The Sound Of The L.A. Strip In 1967 And Embodies -- In Its Two-Minutes-And-Ten-Seconds -- All The Cultural Elements Of Its Soundtrack -- The Waning Surf Scene That Traveled It, The Muscle Cars That Roared Through Its Lanes, The Dawn Of Acid-Crazed Hippies Floating Down It, And The Speed-Drenched Outlaw Biker Tribes Who Haunted It. The Rest Of The Album Is A Literal Pastiche Of Tracks That Were Issued Under Other Names, Slightly Doctored For And From Other Soundtracks -- There Were Seven Between The Arrows' First Album, Apache '65, And Blues Theme -- Or Simply Renamed. These Include "King Fuzz," An Instrumental Remake Of "The Twirl" By Harley Hatcher; "Theme From The Unknown," Which Had Several Names In Earlier Releases On 45 Rpm's, And "Fuzz Theme," That Was Later Re-Titled "The Young World," For The Soundtrack To Teen Rebellion.” - Thom Jurek, AMG... more details
