Jamie James Discography of CDs
||Cruel World CD (1993) |
Jamie James music CDs James is still playing R&B/blues/rockabilly-based roots music as a solo act, but his songwriting has become somewhat more serious, in the mode of performers like Graham Parker and Bob Seger. His arrangements have more of a bluesy bar-band feel than those of the Kingbees on this competent, unremarkable 1993 set. ~ Richie Unterberger

||Kingbees Vol. 1 & 2 CD (1992) |
Jamie James CD discography Both of the Kingbees' early-'80s albums are combined onto this single-disc CD collection. Most of the material comes from the pen of Jamie James, although the covers (of Buddy Holly, Charlie Rich, Don Gibson, and Carl Perkins) give a pretty good idea as to their sources of inspiration. It's cheerful, energetic rock revivalism, without much originality or compelling material. More reverent than the Stray Cats, perhaps, but not as brazen, and therefore not as exciting. ~ Richie Unterberger

||Special Tribute to Elvis CD (2000) |
Jamie James albums Rockabilly supergroup the Swing Cats feature members of the Stray Cats and the Polecats. On their second album, A Special Tribute to Elvis, they rocket through many of the King's classics, including "Good Rockin' Tonight," "Viva Las Vegas," "Little Sister," and "Burning Love." An entertaining tribute for -- and from -- Presley fans. ~ Heather Phares
