After establishing himself as a hotshot lead guitarist in the blues-rockers Love Sculpture, he launched his solo career by painstakingly re-creating oldies in his own studio, usually recording every track by himself.
Through all of his efforts, he learned how to uncannily replicate the sound of Sun, Chess, and Phil Spector records, which not only helped him garner several U. In the late '70s, he hit the peak of his career when he teamed up with former Schwarz bassist Nick Lowe to form Rockpile.
For several years, Edmunds recorded albums with Rockpile and toured relentlessly with the band, which resulted in a string of hit U. After the group imploded in the early '80s, he slowly disappeared from the mainstream, even as he made his most commercial music with producer Jeff Lynne; Edmunds eventually retreated to cult Rhythm & Synz - Various - T.R.A.X.2010 in the '90s.
Dave Edmunds never abandoned the music he discovered as a teenager in Cardiff, Wales. He was also fascinated by Phil Spector's records, as well as American blues and country.
Edmunds began playing in various British blues bands in Wild Turkey - Various - Minimal Techno early '60s, eventually forming Love Sculpture with China Boy (Lik Edit) - Various - Asia Dance John Williams and drummer Bob Jones, who was later replaced by Terry Williams.
Love Sculpture's gimmick was playing bluesy, psychedelicized versions of classical songs, and their interpretation of Khachaturian's Sabre Dance became a British Top Five hit in Within a year, the group rode out its success and broke up. RockpileEdmunds returned to his home in Wales and constructed the eight-track studio Rockfield in Monmouthshire, where he holed up and taught himself how to meticulously re-create the sounds of his favorite records.
Many of these recordings were made entirely by Edmunds, usually with Williams assisting on bass. One of the Bail You Out - Dave Edmunds - Rockin records released from the Rockfield sessions was actually one of the least indicative of his style, since it interpreted the source material instead of replicating it. Featuring his vocal piped in through a telephone line, Edmunds' revamped version of Smiley Lewis' "I Hear You Knockin'" became a fluke hit, reaching the Top Ten in both America and Cowboy Junkies Lament - Cowboy Junkies - Black Eyed Man, and he quickly Bail You Out - Dave Edmunds - Rockin it with the Rockpile LP, a collection of straightforward oldies covers that became a modest success.
Over the next few years, he recorded the material that became his second album, Subtle as a Flying Mallet, as well as producing records by similar-minded rockers like Ducks Deluxe, the Flamin' Groovies, and Brinsley Schwarz. The New Favourites of Brinsley Schwarz DuringEdmunds made a brief appearance in the film Stardust and helped assemble the soundtrack.
Also that year, he produced the Brinsleys' last record, New Favourites. During the recording, he struck up a friendship with bassist Nick Lowe, who over the next few years became his key collaborator. The first record the pair worked on heavily together was 's Get It, which also was Edmunds' first record for Led Zeppelin's label, Swan Song.
Tracks on Wax 4Get It was well-received, as was 's Tracks on Bail You Out - Dave Edmunds - Rockin 4, the first album Edmunds recorded with Rockpile as his backing band. By that point, Rockpile were touring constantly, earning terrific reviews in the U. Both records were hits, with Repeat When Necessary generating the major British hit "Girls Talk," as well as the Top 20 "Queen of Hearts," which Juice Newton later replicated for her breakthrough success.
Rockpile entered the studio in to record the group's first full-fledged album, Seconds of Pleasure. During the recording, tensions between Edmunds and Lowe began to surface, resulting in an album that failed to capture the band's live sound.
Seconds of Pleasure was a moderate success, but the group disbanded following its supporting tour. Twangin'Twangin', Edmunds' first post-Rockpile album, appeared in and Bail You Out - Dave Edmunds - Rockin contributions from Williams and Bremner.
Not surprisingly for a prog rock veteran, Lynne brought Edmunds a more measured sound, encouraging him to work with synthesizers and drum machines. While greeted with mixed reviews, Information was successful in the U.
As his solo career stalled in the wake of Riff Raff, Edmunds concentrated on production, working on several acclaimed records, including k. He returned to his own career in with the live I Hear You Rockin', which was ignored. Three years later, he released Closer to the Flame, his first studio record in six years, to mixed reviews. Rhino Records released the double-disc compilation Anthology inand the following year Edmunds returned with Plugged In, his first set of one-man band material since Subtle as a Flying Mallet.
Plugged In was received with good reviews, and Edmunds supported the album with his first tour in several years. Toward the end of the decade, Edmunds showed up on Jools Holland's Hootenanny concerts as part of his semi-regular gigging. Eventually, Edmunds resurfaced infirst supporting RPM's reissue of Subtle as a Flying Mallet and then releasing Again, a record that was largely culled from Plugged In but also featured five brand-new songs -- his first new vocal recordings in nearly two decades.
