Guitarist/singer/songwriter Chris Spedding has been a mainstay of the British session scene since the late '60s, playing with just about everyone from Nucleus, Jack Bruce, John Cale, Elton John, Iggy Pop, Mike Bratt to Paul McCartney, The Bay City Rollers and recently on Katie Mehlua's album. This collection from his most successful period on Harvest and RAK (1969-81), features all the singles, including his big hit 'Motorbikin', and the best of the B-sides and album tracks taken from his 6 classic EMI studio albums: Backwood Progression, The Only Lick I Know, Chris Spedding, Hurt, Guitar Graffiti & I'm Not Like Everybody Else. Chris himself has helped compile the tracklist, and assisted with the artwork, writing notes for the booklet.

This 23-track CD really is "The Very Best Of Chris Spedding", and a rip-roaring rock 'n' roll blast. For those unfamiliar with his singing, this is a good crash course. Spedding is better known as a veteran British session man who's worked with many of the greats. His guitar playing turns up on classic albums by John Cale, Roxy Music, Bryan Ferry, Brian Eno, Donovan, Roy Harper, Robert Gordon - and hundreds of others. He's also toured with many of them, in addition to his own solo tours. If you want to be impressed, take a look at the sessions section of the discography on his official website. He even played on the original "Jesus Christ Superstar"!

The first several songs are from his early days, and are rather folky with rock flourishes. Spedding sings with a bit of a Dylan drawl - which he stopped doing after his first 2 albums. "Backwood Progression" (1971) and "The Only Lick I Know" (1972) are very pleasant, but aren't essential Spedding. Both were recorded for Harvest/EMI, and reflect the laid-back stoner vibe of the estimable Harvest's output.

The rest of this CD (starting with the 5th track) was recorded for Rak/EMI. Rak owner Mickie Most had a long history of producing hit singles (Donovan, Animals, Herman's Hermits, Lulu), and was unequaled at bringing out a performer's personality and matching them up with the right material. From '75 to '80, Spedding made 4 albums for Rak - and Most produced the first ("Chris Spedding") and the fourth ("I'm Not Like Everybody Else"). His second album ("Hurt") was produced by Chris Thomas (Sex Pistols, Pretenders) - and his third "Guitar Graffiti" was produced by Spedding himself. All of their best tracks are on this compilation. These records are still the highlight of his career.

Mickie Most turned Spedding into a singing Marlon Brando, and cultivated his image as a sensitive bad boy. With his greased back hair, sharkskin suits and leather pants - Chris looked the part and wrote punky rock/rockabilly songs to support it. He's more or less ran with this ever since.

If anything is under-represented here, it's his fourth album for Rak - "I'm Not Like Everybody Else". Only the last 2 tracks are taken from it, and I seriously believe it contains the best production work Mickie Most ever did. Every song is good. It's Chris' masterpiece, and I'd suggest buying it along with this collection. "The Very Best Of Chris Spedding" is truly great and a whole lot of fun.
