Detroit Cobras

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Detroit Cobras - Mink Rat Or Rabbit Mink Rat Or Rabbit
Pop New - LP SFTRI 525 Sympathy For The Record Industry
Sealed Limited Edition Of 1,000 Pressings, Label Variation Unkown. “The Detroit Cobras Manage A Pretty Rare Feat With Their Debut LP By Transcending Classic R&B Material And By Sticking Not To The Original Sound Or Slavishly Recreating Arrangements And Stylistic Trappings Of The Genre, But By Finding The Essence Of The Rough-And-Tumble Spirit Of The Original Streetwise Tunes The Cobras Tackle On Mink Rat. That They've Chosen As Their Material Obscure R&B Nuggets From Such Legendary Labels As Fortune Records And Tunes From The Glory Days Of Regional Hits And AM Radio (With The Left-Field Cover Of The Oblivians' "Bad Man" Here Titled "Bad Girl") Only Aids And Abets Their Efforts To Make This Material Uniquely Their Own Led By Rhythm Guitarist Steve Shaw, The Cobras Are So Tight, Instrumentally, That They're Loose. The Sound, In Modern Terms, Is Dirty Garage Rock, But Emboldened By A Sense Of Rhythm That Eludes Most Trash Rock And Punk-Leaning Outfits. But, Really, What The Detroit Cobras Peddle Is Rock & Roll, Just As Raw And Funky As It Was Originally Intended. Shaw May Lead The Instrumental Charge, But It's Vocalist Rachel Nagy That Steals The Show. With A Limber, Husky Voice That Recalls Peggy Lee Gone To Seed And Chain-Smoking While Standing On A Detroit Street Corner, Nagy Is Soulful Without Resorting To Histrionics. Instead, She Infuses Her Treatment Of The Material With An Alluring Bad-Girl Bravado And A Feral Sultriness. Always One Step Away From Falling Apart, The Detroit Cobras Manage To Hang Together Long Enough To Keep The House Party Vibe Rolling From Track To Track. A Fitting Tribute To The Spirit Of Rock& Roll And A Reason To Go Dig Through The Crates To Hear The Originals.” Chris Handyside, AMG.... more details
 
Detroit Cobras - Tied & True Tied & True
Pop Colored Vinyl CSDLP 1112 Bloodshot
Hard To Find 2007 Grey Marbled Vinyl Housed In A Gatefold Cover. ‘The Detroit Cobras Have Built An International Reputation From Mining Their Estimable Record Collection For Raw And Emphatic R&B Tunes And Giving Them A Hard, Sweaty Reinterpretation Dominated By Hard-Edged Guitars, But They've Turned Things Down A Few Notches On Their Fourth Album, Tied & True. Though Tied & True Once Again Features The Cobras Running Through A Baker's Dozen Of Soulful Chestnuts (And Say What You Will, But This Band Knows A Great Song When They Hear One), The Attack Is More Subtle This Time Out, And The More Measured Approach Serves Them Well. The Band Still Knows How To Deliver The Rock & Roll Goods, But Guitarists Mary Ramirez And Greg Cartwright (The Latter On Loan From Reigning Sound) Aim Less For Sonic Overkill Than Giving Vocalist Rachel Nagy A Proper Backdrop For Her Passionate, Throaty Vocals, And The Results Are More Soulful And Satisfying Than What The Band Came Up With On 2005's Baby. Similarly, Drummer Kenny Tudrick Doesn't Shy Away From The Big Beat, But Also Drives These Arrangements With Imagination That's Less About Bash And More About Groove. Greg Cartwright Didn't Produce This Set Like He Did On Baby, But His Influence Is Clearly Felt On This Music, Which Boasts More Of A Southern Sense Of Rhythm And Heart Than The Detroit Cobras' Earlier Albums And Recalls The Rollicking But Passionate Tone Of His Best Work With Reigning Sound. And Rachel Nagy Is In Great Form On These Sessions, Filling These Tunes With Emotional Energy While Creating A Sultry Sense Of Mystery On The Slower Numbers. Folks Looking For A Re-Creation Of The Detroit Cobras' Rowdy Live Shows Might Be Thrown At First By Tied & True's More Low-Key Attack, But The Results Are Soul Satisfying Music That Ranks With Their Best Studio Work To Date.” – Mark Deming, AMG... more details
