Dave Edmunds

On his self-produced 11th solo studio album, Edmunds (1971's "I Hear You Knocking") ladles out heaping helpings of his pop-tinged brand of rockabilly, playing all the instruments himself. In "I Love Music," this fun-loving rock veteran takes off on a party-time rollick. In "Beach Boy Blood," he playfully blends swirling high-pitched harmonies and mellow melodies to offer a hilarious toast to the eternal surfer band. Edmunds doesn't even take success too seriously. In "It Doesn't Really Matter," he sings, "You might just get to the top of the tree/But that's a long way to fall." He knows what some of today's ponderous stars have forgotten—it is only rock and roll. And you'll like it. (Pyramid)
