When Mitch Ryder returned to singing and performing in the late 1970s, he was already a rock’n’roll legend. After traumatic teenager success with the Detroit Wheels in the Sixties, he spent some years regaining his health and confidence. The result was the formation of a new band and a brace of new albums. ‘Naked But Not Dead’ was the second release on his own Seeds and Stems label, first issued in 1980. Although famed as an R&B singer, on this set of nine songs Ryder explores a range of musical influences, including reggae and punk rock. At heart, Mitch remains a soul singer, who grew up under the influence of his Tamla Motown heroes. But there is always a counteracting dose of boogie rock to lighten the mood. This CD has informative liner notes that recall the career highlights of a well respected artist, now hailed as one of the founders of modern rock.
