The Best of Mitch Ryder & The Detroit Wheels
Released: Apr 2005
Even though it can sometimes sound like Mitch Ryder should be paying royalties to James Brown and Little Richard for 150 years, there is no denying the Detroit Wheels were the kickin'-est white soul band this side of the Atlantic. Detroit's reputation for rocking harder than the rest of the US was born in these grooves. Skip the oldies radio staple "Devil with a Blue Dress On" and go straight to the defiant "Breakout," the tortured and awesome "Baby Jane (Mo Mo Jane)" and the maximum R&B of everything else.
