Bill Black's Combo • Solid and Raunchy

Review by Greg Adams
One of three albums the Bill Black Combo released in 1960, Solid and Raunchy is exactly that -- honking, sax-driven rock & roll instrumentals played by a propulsive five-piece band. This is music for teenage dance parties and consequently sticks to million-selling tunes like "Bo Diddley," "Tequila," and "Raunchy." The combo varies their approach at times for variety, introducing songs with an organ ("Don't Be Cruel") or piano ("Blueberry Hill"), but the saxophone always asserts itself after a few bars. The album's suitability as a party disc made it the combo's highest charting. Ultimately, its context is lost today since the time of bobbysoxers and record hops has passed, and most modern listeners will find the repertoire over-worn and uninteresting despite the solid and raunchy performances.
