V/A - Speechless: Half A Ton Of Rockin’ Instrumentals 2 x CD (Western Star) 

This double CD package from UK based Western Star Records veers a bit from their usual program of delivering outstanding rockabilly tunes. For this 50 song release, the label goes instrumental, with their stable of bands coming into the Western Star studio to lay to tape their unique takes on a bunch of instrumental rock classics, along with bands that come in with their own compositions. Given that the label specializes in rockabilly you'd expect this collection to just be rockabilly tunes stripped of vocals. However, you'd be wrong because the bands instead have taken this opportunity to do instros in a variety of styles - traditional surf, Euro instro, spaghetti western, garage instro, early rock n’ roll, and more. None of the bands here are familiar to me, although famed Clem Cattini of The Tornados guests with Ray Fenwick on the tune “Swingin’ Low”. Great tunes, great sound and with 50 songs on this 2-CD set there's definitely something for everyone here.
