8/10 Phil Staff review, 01 March 2007
The folks who brought us that ace (album of the week!) Protest Songs CD follow it up with THE SONG BEFORE THE SONG. The premise here is it's loads of famous old songs sung by black folks which you never really heard until whitey came along and made 'em successful. Shock horror!! Racism exists even in our precious music industry.... Original versions of Hound Dog, Rock Around The Clock, House of The Rising Sun, Highway No 61 and lots more sung by folks as Nat King Cole, Leadbelly and no one else I've ever heard of. Without these folks you wouldn't have had Elvis for starters.... once again Viper bring you an essential guide to the origins of popular music. Though I will say it's not as strong as Protest Songs BUT it does have its moments and there are some total gems on there.
