Let's Turn It Up CD
This superb 4th album by The Accelerators is a wonderful release which combines precise performances, great material and faultless production.
The band has set a high standard with their previous work, which they manage to exceed on Let's Turn It Up.
Buddy Holly makes his presence felt throughout - obviously a strong influence on the band - but there is plenty of variety here on what is essentially a classy Rockabilly album which mixes sharp original material with some well-known cover songs.
However, don't let the fact that some of these covers aren't exactly obscure put you off - they are meticulously well performed but manage to sound fresh too.
The fact that a Rockabilly band can pull off such a good cover of Dion's Donna The Prima Donna is simply amazing.
The uninitiated should take note that singer Steve Smith has one of the best voices of the Rock 'n' Roll genre.
That said, his musicians are certainly up-to-scratch, as is the artwork, production and songwriting on this excellent album.
