Catalog no.: CDLUX0000008

Item ID: 372791

The latest in Aces Deluxe series of limited edition releases. Only 1500 are being made. As the title implies, the Routers were never about high-minded cerebral matters. The motive was basic and straight forward: use any gimmick that might work to sell as many records to the maximum number of teenagers as humanly possible. Unashamed commercialism meant the writers would jump on any passing bandwagon and come up with a catchy tune. Using the same ploy that had been successful with the Marketts (See CDLUX 006) the sleeves and touring bands featured young white men, but the music you hear on this CD was mostly recorded by middle-aged black virtuoso session-men. When you listen closely you can revel in the drive and power of Earl Palmers drums, the guttural, hoarse throated sax of Steve Douglas, and the ever-nimble and agile twanging of Tommy Tedesco. Many tracks are new to CD and four are previously unreleased. Compilation and sleeve note by Pipeline Magazines Dave Burke and Alan Taylor.
With a new interview with the Routers Joe Saraceno and Michael Z Gordon.
