While folks who turn out semi-authorized compilations of rare rock & roll must spend months on end digging through stacks of dusty vinyl in search of rare gems, the people at Collector Records in Germany have blazed a new trail with the disc, Savage Rockin' Girls, by unearthing an unusually hip beer commercial, "That Regal Feeling," a radio spot for Regal, a brand of suds brewed in New Orleans that boasts some hot guitar picking and cool vocals from an unknown female singer who sure knows how to make the product sound tasty. While that isn't quite the highlight of Savage Rockin' Girls, the tune does suit this disc, which collects 35 ultra-obscure rockin' sides from the '50s, all featuring high-attitude female vocalists. While nearly everything here moves well enough, a few of the tracks are up-tempo country rather than proper rock & roll, and there are a few covers on deck that may be good fun but unwittingly reveal their own inferiority to the original hits (Nedra Price can't beat Wanda Jackson on "Let's Have a Party," and while the Tremolons have a lot of courage taking on "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On," they sound more than a little anemic compared to Jerry Lee Lewis). But there are lots of solid rock & roll sides to be found here, including Kathy Zee's rollicking "Buzzin'," Pamela Law's slinky and sensual "When the Band Plays the Blues," the emphatic "Gonna Be Loved" by Linda & the Epics, Helen Thomas' exercise in pre-P.C. hep talk "Chattanooga Drummer Man," and "Dallas Chiggers," Mamie Martin's musical essay on the importance of pest control. The booklet includes plenty of label photos and cool graphics, and the audio is good despite the fact nearly everything seems to have been sourced from vinyl discs. Next time it's ladies night at your local roadhouse, throw this compilation into the mix and let the gals help you get the party started in style.
