Rockestra Theme Details Contributing artists: Art Of Noise, George Harrison, James Burton, Paul McCartney, Ry Cooder, The Sharps Producer: Duane Eddy (Compilation) Distributor: WEA (distro) Recording type: Studio Recording mode: Mixed SPAR Code: n/a Includes 6 previously unreleased tracks and a booklet with photos and liner notes. David Letterman once asked first-generation rock & roll guitar hero Duane Eddy what his most important contribution to music was, to which Eddy replied without a pause "I never sang." The music collected on this typically definitive Rhino career retrospective goes a long way to proving Eddy's instrumental prowess. He had a simple formula--simple melody lines played on the lowest strings of the guitar and than heavily echoed--but it proved surprisingly adaptable and tremendously influential. Brian Wilson stole the opening riff from Eddy's "Movin' and Groovin' " for "Surfin' U.S.A.," and Ennio Morricone's scores for Clint Eastwood's spaghetti westerns are drenched in Eddy-derived guitar lines. As you might expect, all the hits are here, from the infectious 1958 smash "Rebel Rouser" to the 1986 re-make of the theme from PETER GUNN that Eddy recorded with the Art of Noise. There are also some interesting oddities, including the Jeff Lynne-produced "The Trembler," which Trent Reznor remixed to great ominous affect for the soundtrack of Oliver Stone's NATURAL BORN KILLERS. Editorial reviews ...Duane Eddy's elegant instrumentals contain a fascinating kernel of weirdness....the cream of [TWANG THANG] is the early (Pre-Beatles) stuff, where Eddy transcends his blandness with his stylish, ultra-cool presence... Musician (10/01/1993)
