As pub rock excavations go, Hux's 2007 release of Ducks Deluxe's The John Peel Sessions is pretty major. Like all pub rockers, the stage was where the Sean Tyla-led quintet thrived, but there have been precious few live recordings of the band at its prime; the closest is the 1982 LP Last Night of a Pub Rock Band, but that has never been on CD and it didn't capture the original organ-less lineup of the group, which had a harder feel more reminiscent of Dr. Feelgood than the lineup that recorded the 1975 Taxi to the Terminal Zone. This lean, mean incarnation is captured on the first four songs of this 12-track comp, as they tear through the classics 'Fireball' and 'Coast to Coast' before settling into an easier groove for the previously unreleased 'Pensacola Blues' (played quite a bit in the early days according to Nigel Cross' terrific liner notes, which also contain the revelation that guitarist Martin Belmont has no memory of the song) and the B-side 'Bring Back My Packard Car.' The fidelity on this early session is a bit rough -- Hux does not hide the fact that they couldn't find the original masters, and it's better to have this session in thin sound than not at all -- and the band sometimes sounds a little ragged but it's exciting, the closest thing yet to a document of what Ducks Deluxe sounded like at their early peak. The next two Peel sessions -- one from April 1974, one from March 1975 -- are the work of a band with a lighter, poppier touch, thanks in large part to the addition of keyboardist Andy McMaster, who helped bring Ducks much closer to the poppy sound of late-period Brinsley Schwarz. Tyla gripes about it a bit in the liners ('The pop stuff was crap -- it wasn't what we were about at all') but this lighter Ducks still could rock pretty hard, particularly on the last Peel session, which kicks off with a very good version of 'Paris 9' and the sly, greasy 'Jumping in the Fire,' a song that's never shown up on CD before. And the poppier stuff -- best exemplified by the unheard 'Dancing Beat,' a silly pop tune powered by a mock Motown beat -- is still pretty fun, thanks partially to some good hooks but chiefly to the fact that Ducks Deluxe were simply an excellent, straight-ahead rock & roll band, one that seemed incapable of not having a good time -- and that's precisely the reason why the music on Peel Sessions still feels vibrant and alive, and why it's a necessary listen for any fan of pub rock. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, All Music Guide
