Dean Carter is the ultimate rock’n’roll anomaly. Just check out the picture on the front cover: a wild-eyed madman throwing a Presley-like stance, guitar by his side, with a sweptback do, and zebra-striped jacket to die for. The ultimate in rockin’ cool. Must be late 1950s, right? Uh-uh. How does 1968 grab ya?
There was a glut of sessions in late 1966 and early 1967 that produced a batch of pumped-up, crazed material, a handful of which escaped on Miller’s Milky Way label. ‘Run Rabbit Run’ was a bizarrely constructed yet insanely catchy dance tune, while ‘Rebel Woman’ parlayed a dark, brooding brand of garage rock. The flip to ‘Rebel Woman’ is possibly one of the finest examples of pure rock intensity ever committed to wax. When Miller suggested a cover of ‘Jailhouse Rock’, it was with the concept that it should sound like a riot really was going on. Elsewhere, the violent sound was only slightly toned down for stomping cuts such as ‘Black Boots’ and ‘Sizzlin’ Hot’.
