ACCORDION POP, VOL. 1
Come on in. Sit down and have a cup o'' sweet with Angel. This is uncut stuff circa mid-80s--nothin'' but accordion, no vocals, a little reverb, and I heard some whitegurl finger-poppin'' on "Beast Of Burden." Yes, the Stones song. There''s another one too: "As Tears Go By." But don''t cry, even though this disc''s mostly sad/happy in that special way Ms. Corpus Christi does so well. She also angel-kisses the soft white melodic underbelly of the Monkees ("I''m A Believer"), the Velvets ("Femme Fatale"), the Beatles together (only version of "Hey Jude" you ever need to hear) and apart ("Imagine" as part of a medley with yet another Stones tune, "You Can''t Always Get What You Want").
Yes, it does sound good. Where else can you hear Santo & Johnny''s "Sleep Walk," Roger Miller''s "King Of The Road," and the Beach Boys'' "Surfer Girl" done to perfection as solo-accordion pop instrumentals?
Plus: "To Know Him Is To Love Him" (Phil "We-Love-Him- No-Matter-What" Spector''s Teddy Bears), "Love Me Tender" (do I have to say Elvis?), "Jennifer Juniper" (Donovan), "Downtown" (Pet Clark), "Singin'' The Blues" (I''d like to dream thatAngel''s version was based on Black Oak''s version of the Guy Mitchell/Marty Robbins hit), and more more more!!
This Gulcher CD of ACCORDION POP is a reissue of the 1985 cassette originally released by Stim Records. Angel has been making records for the past 20+ years her most recent album of new material, DIVINE HEALER, was released by Gulcher in 2003. But you already know all that, right? Okay then, I''m gonna take a nap while I listen again to Angel pump away at "Denise" by Randy & The Rainbows (never mind Blondie''s version). -- Eddie Flowers, https://www.tradebit.com
