8/10 Dave Staff review, 24 March 2011

This record is sooo smooth. Its Overton's first two most sought after albums..and both of them are real pleasures to behold. The Overton Berry Ensemble LP is from 1972 and is a collection of really louche cuts played with the consummate professionalism that came to be came Overton'ss hall mark. Its an LP of cover versions that range from big band compositions to more lavish Musical style offerings. He and his band (Chuck Metcalf on Bass and Bill Kotick on the drumset) lay down these tracks with all the subtlety of the jazz legends that they are.Its a really great sounding record. It has a really dry sound that I like. The playing on this record is fucking ace. Its like the finest band playing at you with their tuxedos on fire. Its a real joy to hear this long lost album. They make each composition their own whether it be Andrew Lloyd Webber's "Jesus Christ Superstar" or the two Peggy Lee numbers. All real quality. The OBT at Seattle's DoubleTree Inn is a live record that is also really amazing. They had to lay the cables for this recording under the ground so that the punters didn't get caught up and electrocuted and to minimise audience noise. This is also a great record. Comprised of a collection of standards and cover versions that are played with the gusto and quality that only Overton and his chums can. The standout moment on this live recording is a truly great cover of The Beatles "Hey Jude". Overton and his band give an already good song an extra emotional push with a stripped down version that builds in all the right places. This record is on the thickest vinyl I've ever seen. It's so thick it makes George W. Bush look like a member of Mensa. This record is a beautiful thing and you might wanna get this one....no you might wanna...Overton I give you a Salty Salute...
