MITCH RYDER | ALL MITCH RYDER HITS (180 GRAM AUDIOPHILE VINYL/LIMITED EDITION)
As a very talented teenager playing in rock and soul bands across the Detroit area, future rock and roll legend Mitch Ryder was soon discovered by mega producer and label owner Bob Crewe (Frankie Valli & The Four Seasons). Having a knack for producing and writing many hit records, in 1966 Crewe recorded Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels in the studio and cut what many believe to be one of the first rock meets blue eyed soul albums with the Take A Ride, which of course featured their first chart topper Jenny Take A Ride. From this moment on, the Mitch Ryder persona was born, becoming a hero to many rock and roll fans throughout the world. Mitch Ryder's numerous appearances on national television shows, the concert circuit and continual airplay on all his records made him a fixture on the music charts. His next number of hit singles and albums truly impacted the way a lot of us listen to music to this day. The two and a half to three minute anthems like Devil With a Blue Dress On/Good Golly Miss Molly, Too Many Fish in th Sea/Three Little Fishes and the near riot pandemonium of Sock It to Me-Baby! have all truly stood the test of time. Noting all of the chart successes and sales of the Mitch Ryder name brand, the good folks at New Voice Records honored this famed artist with his own greatest hits album, the magnificent All Mitch Ryder Hits in 1968. This original album has been out of print for many years and for several decades in the vinyl format... that is until now. Friday Music is proud to offer the original New Voice Records masterpiece the All Mitch Ryder Hits for the first time on 180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl. Mastered impeccably from the original New Voice stereo tapes by Joe Reagoso at Friday Music Studios and at Capitol Records in Hollywood, California, this amazing album truly sounds incredible in the audiophile vinyl domain. It is also the first installment in our Mitch Ryder Original Recording Masters series, which will feature ongoing reissues from his classic and most important recordings from the classic rock era. This greatest hits album features all of the Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels original hit recordings mentioned above as well as more killer workouts like Little Latin Lupe Lu, Joy, Breakout, I'd Rather Go to Jail and a super soul interpretation of Wilson Pickett's classic In the Midnight Hour. We have also included the original rare album cover artwork featuring the hip full color live front cover photo and the live concert action shots on the back cover.
