BACK TO BASE X 4 Stars

Lonnie Lee a key player in the first wave of Australian rock'n'roll, back in the heady days of the Sydney Stadium, his peers being such stars as Johnny O'Keefe and Col Joye.

It is impressive that, at the age of 79, not only is the Sydney-based Lee still on the road, but he also keeps recording. And Lee continues to channel the sound and spirit of rock'n'roll, 1950s-style, on this record, which combines five originals with a batch of standards from Sam Cooke, Ray Charles, Otis Blackwell and John Marascalco (who wrote Lee's, Starlight Starbright, a big hit in 1960).

The vibe of the album is pure Sun Studio, with just a hint of Happy Days: it is big on energy and contains simple, effective playing, with the odd sprinkle of sugar, as when Lee turns the lights down low for Only Sixteen and Woman in Love.

But, as his roaring take on I Got a Woman goes to show, Lee can still raise a little hell. Back to Base X proves that Lonnie Lee is the authentic article: in the man's own words, he is truly a "real gone cat".

About this track...
