One from vaults opens with Negativland's banned desecration, into some then-modern pop and shinier 60s stuff, into Vegas'n'sleaze (Frank's greasiest performance ever!), ending on a pompously atonal note from Shatner. The black side is more straightforward: choice 'dusties' gritty 'n' sweet (Williams/Watson's take on Cannonball Adderly is a must-hear), a great cheatin' trilogy, into some fonkier soul instros, filthy Dinah, self-described Coaster tune, and a pair of deep soul-shakers to cap it off. Your typical wild ride.

Hey, man. I like your style. If you hadn't noticed, Dinah Washington especially makes me swoon.
