PAUL COLLINS - Out Of My Head LP
Paul Collins is one of the most enduring cult rockers of the late seventies and a founding member of the legendary Nerves (with Jack Lee and Peter Case). He started his solo career in 1979 and has released more than 11 studio albums as Paul Collins, or Paul Collins' Beat. ''Out of My Head'', his new record, is a return to the pure, unadulterated sound he helped create in his youth. On this new album Paul not only sings, but plays all the drums and most of the guitars as well. With the collaboration of Paul Stingo on bass and harmonies, he delivers a true rock n roll record of the kind that are not being made in today's world : simple melodies with classic songwriting structure, Rickenbacker guitars drenched in juicy reverb, straight up 60's pop harmonies, and groovy drums, all recorded reel to reel, by real players. With a photo cover shot by legendary NY photographer Bob Gruen, ''Out of My Head'' is a testament to one man's undying love for rock n roll.
