I loved listening to the latest in a long line of lyrically lewd and lascivious LPs from The Detroit Cobras, Baby. (Yeah, I know four releases isn't enough to constitute a "long line," and one of the four wasn't even an LP, but I was infected by the alliteration bug like so much hantavirus...just roll with me, here.) Led by rambunctiously raunchy Rachel Nagy, they once again mine the vaults of rare early '60s roadhouse R&B for another hip-shaking hullabaloo.

Rachel and the boys hit garage gold at every turn with their sly selection of obscure cover tunes, such as the smouldering Cropper/Hayes/Porter-penned Stax-era "Weak Spot" and Betty Harris' long lost "Mean Man." But the album's standout track is actually a Detroit Cobras original, the quadruple-entendre "Hot Dog (Watch Me Eat)." It certainly bodes well for an all-original album in the future, should they choose to record one. Even if they don't, they're still the best at bringing the wrong side of the tracks from the days of Camelot to The Nukeular Age.

I disagree with you about Hot Dog; I find it to be one of the weaker tracks; To each his own I suppose. I like "I Wanna Holler" and "Its Raining"

More people should be reading these reviews!

Now THAT'S something we can ALL agree on! Have you given the other DC albums a listen yet?

Not yet, (other than a couple of drunken listens to some random tracks when I had people over on Sat. night.) also just got 3 new mixes in the mail; and I finally bought the new U2 and Ozzy's "Blizzard of Oz" on Friday.

I'm digging this one a lot. It took forever to show up in my mailbox, had to order three times from Amazon. The only disappointment for me is the re-hash of Cha Cha Twist. Anyone have an idea why they hauled this out and tried to fix what wasn't broke?

I wondered the same thing myself.

I have mink rat or rabbit. I love that album. I can't imagine them even trying to redo Cha Cha Twist. That song was great.

Haven't heard the album, but they are a great live band.

And, just wanted to say if you like the Detroit garage rock stuff...you outta go grab an old Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels album.
