MITCH RYDER & THE DETROIT WHEELS "Detroit Breakout!" (An Ultimate Anthology)

MITCH RYDER & THE DETROIT WHEELS "Detroit Breakout!" (An Ultimate Anthology): The unsung heart and soul of the Motor City rock & roll scene, Mitch Ryder & the Detroit Wheels' blue-eyed R&B attack boasted a gritty passion and incendiary energy matched by few artists on either side of the color line.If you want a Mitch Ryder and the Detroit Wheels greatest-hits-plus package that's one-stop shopping of the highest order, then look no further. This two-disc, 50-track set collects all three of the group's original albums plus Ryder's solo album, What Now My Love. With only three single sides (not counting the original single edit of "Devil With a Blue Dress On/Good Golly, Miss Molly," available on Sundazed's reissue of the All Hits album) missing to keep this from being a "complete" set, this does provide an awful lot of bang for a buck; unless a single hits compilation will fill the bill in your library, this is the way to go. Great notes and superlative sound on this one, too. (Cub Koda, Allmusic) (This collection is now out of print)
