Baker, Mickey

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Baker, Mickey - The Wildest Guitar The Wildest Guitar
Pop New - LP SD 8035 Atlantic
Factory Sealed 1959 Stereo Original. Tiny (1mm) COH. “Despite Baker's Well-Deserved Reputation As One Of The Most Influential Guitar Players Of Early Rock & Roll, The Wildest Guitar Was One Of The Few Chances He Really Got To Strut His Stuff As A Solo Artist. This Entirely Instrumental Set Features Keening, Sharp, Bluesy Riffs In Much The Same Distinctive Style That Gained Him Fame On "Love Is Strange" And Other Tunes With Mickey & Sylvia. The Choice Of Material, Though, Is A Bit Surprising, Favoring Some Surprisingly Cornball Standards: "Third Man Theme," "Autumn Leaves," "Lullaby Of The Leaves," And Cole Porter's "Night And Day." Baker (Who Also Arranged The Album) Manages To Invest All Of These With A Snazzy R&B Feel And Biting Solos. And He Does Actually Write Four Of The 12 Tunes Himself, On Which He Fashions The Kind Of Straightforward R&B That One Would More Likely To Expect. This Is A Pretty Good Showcase To Hear Baker's Unadorned Virtuosity. But He's Really Better-Appreciated Within The Context Of Stronger Material, Either As Half Of Mickey & Sylvia Or On The Innumerable '50s R&B Cuts (Many On Atlantic) That Feature His Session Work.” Richie Unterberger, AMG.... more details
