Conceived as a counterpart to Golden Age of American Rock'n'Roll, Ace's excellent anthology series covering the first decade of U.S. rock, Chartbusters USA does the same thing for American rock spanning 1964-69. It's perhaps less valuable than the Golden Age series because the material anthologized, at least to judge by the first installment, is somewhat less difficult to acquire, or hear on oldies radio, than the Golden Age stuff. There's no conceptual thread running through the selections, except general top-of-the-line quality: you get "California Dreamin'," "Dance to the Music," "Hi Heel Sneakers," "Brown Eyed Girl," "Walk Away Renee," "Psychotic Reaction," and "Green Tambourine" right next to each other. The only truly hard-to-find item is the Soul Sisters' mid-chart soul hit "I Can't Stand It" (covered by the Spencer Davis Group), though some of these hits, like "Elusive Butterfly" (Bob Lind), "G.T.O." (Ronny & the Daytonas), and the original 1965 hit version of Sir Douglas Quintet's "She's About a Mover," don't turn up on various-artists collections often. Still, if you're seeking a wall-to-wall blast of mid-and-late 1960s classic American rock singles, it's real good value, with 30 songs, nearly every one a classic. Hugo Montenegro's "The Good, The Bad and the Ugly" seems an odd choice in the midst of a very rock-oriented disc, though. ~ Richie Unterberger, All Music Guide

Detroit's Electric Six splice punk, new wave, disco, and arena rock into a total entertainment solution for the new breed of rock n' roller. "This single is...pure driving disco-rock, complete with a new wave saxophone solo and ridiculous lyrics. Easily one of the best rock songs of the past year"--NY Times. "Hold on, have the White Stripes gone Studio 54?"--X-Ray.
Electric Six is the most exciting band to come tumbling out of Detroit since Kiss. Sporting grimy leisure suits and hilarious stage names (the guitarists are known only as Surge Joebot and the Rock and Roll Indian), the ragtag group comes up with a deliriously catchy disco trash sound on its smart, hyperactive debut. Studio 54 horns mingle anxiously with AC/DC-influenced garage riffs, while frontman Dick Valentine rants maniacally over jerky, suggestive punk-funk songs like "Gay Bar" and "I'm the Bomb." Plus, rumor suggests that single "Danger! High Voltage" features the White Stripes' Jack White on backing vocals and, less plausibly, Bill Clinton on saxophone. How cool is that? Very. --Aidin Vaziri

Jock Rock ~ Jock Rock 2
And now, because you haven't heard these songs enough... Boy, what would life be like if somehow you got to own the licensing rights to this stuff? These are the songs that shake the rafters of every arena in America, getting crowds rowdy and psyched up while simultaneously getting people to look very foolish on JumboTron screens. There was a time when these urgent, driving classics could have been judged on their own momentum-filled merits, but now they're simply the soundtrack to the most mundane keggers. It's also a good dating test--if your date is enjoying the tunes, time to move on--and a way to get in touch with your inner frat boy. Fine sound. --Marc Greilsamer
|The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou
Lowest new price: $7.89
Lowest used price: $2.23
Oscarr-nominated writer/director Wes Anderson ('Rushmore,' 'The Royal Tenenbaums') has assembled an all-star cast to set sail for outrageous misadventures on the high seas in this exciting & wildly original comedy. Eccentric, down-but-not-out oceanographer Steve Zissou (Murray) & his motley crew - Team Zissou - find themselves in troubled waters when they attempt to track down the mysterious 'jaguar shark' that ate his partner while filming a documentary of their latest adventure. Adding to his nautical nightmares, Zissou must contend with a beautiful journalist (Blanchett) assigned to write a profile, & a new member of the team who might possibly be his long-lost son (Wilson). The unsinkable Zissou faces hilarious complications trying to keep his expedition afloat while bailing out from budgetary woes & a host of other challenges (including a close encounter with marauding pirates).
Director Wes Anderson's jewel of a comic-character study revolves around the quirks and obsessions of Bill Murray's titular Cousteau-esque deep-sea adventurer and his motley crew of associates. As they did for the director's equally sublime Royal Tenenbaums, Anderson and music super Randall Poster stitch their eclectic source material into a warm, subtly focused new cinemusic whole. Mark Mothersbaugh's original Casio-baroque cues are the perfect complement for Australian film composer Sven Libaek's compelling slices of vintage exotica, while Ziggy Stardust-era David Bowie largely provides the musical subtext, either directly or in earnest, through live acoustic renditions by Brazilian troubadour/film costar Seu Jorge. Seasoning the mix to near perfection are smart, vintage Britpop contributions by Scott Walker and the Zombies, Iggy and the Stooges thrashing "Search and Destroy," the evocative Iberian fire of Paco DeLucia, and Joan Baez's dramatic read of Morricone's Sacco & Vanzetti theme, "Here's to You." -- Jerry McCulley
