Label: See For Miles Records | 24 Tracks | MP3 320 kbps | 121 MB
Genre: Rock & Roll, Instrumental Rock

Nelson (born Sander L Nelson, December 1, 1938, Santa Monica,
California) is an American drummer. Nelson, one of the best-known rock
drummers of the early 1960s, had several solo instrumental Top 40 hits
and was a session drummer on many other well-known hits, and released
over 30 albums.

Although their titles seem to suggest best-of
compilations, both Golden Hits and Best of the Beats are simply two more
entries in a long line of Sandy Nelson records cut in response to the
chart blockbusters of the moment. These LPs live or die on their
relative compatibility with Nelson's strengths and sensibilities, and
each of these 12-song efforts is a significant cut above average thanks
to the inclusion of several R&B classics that afford the drummer the
chance to cut loose. (Their similarities also make them more compatible
than many of the pairings on See for Miles' other Sandy Nelson
two-fers.) Nelson clearly savors the verve and creativity of Golden Hits
covers like Wilbert Harrison's "Kansas City," Bill Doggett's "Honky
Tonk," and Fats Domino's "Walking to New Orleans," and his drum solos
exhibit an unusual finesse, complementing the melodies instead of
overpowering them. The Best of the Beats is even better. The
loosey-goosey energy of the New Orleans party classics "Ooh Poo Pah Doo"
and "Mother-in-Law" proves particularly well matched to the chaotic
abandon of Nelson's rhythms, and he also captures the Latin-flavored
verve of the Ritchie Valens hits "Let's Go" and "La Bamba." Best of all
are the back-to-back Elvis Presley covers "All Shook Up" and "Don't Be
Cruel," which pay implicit homage to D.J. Fontana, the King's longtime
sideman and arguably the first truly great rock & roll drummer.
