As part of the US release of Baby, we included the Seven Easy Pieces EP, originally released on Rough Trade in the UK and previously available only as an import, and the US debut of the video for "Cha Cha Twist." (p.s. who is that masquerading as Little Red Riding Hood in the video? Why it's little Meg White!)

All this in one package? For one low price? Are we INSANE? What a bargain!!!

The Detroit Cobras Baby

Baby is the Detroit Cobras' third full length CD. Produced in part by Greg Cartwright of Reigning Sound (who is also the guitarist on these recordings) it gives props to the lost stars and misfits of soul's glory days.

Possessing a vocal powerhouse at the midpoint between the nasty-girl romance of Ronnie Spector and the "don't EVEN mess with me" growl of Tina Turner, the Detroit Cobras know how to uphold their rep as THE TOP-SHELF ROCK AND SOUL BAND; a thrashy, sexy powerhouse that can raise the rafters, coo and purr you into a trance, bring the Hully Gully into the 21st century soaked with sweat, and do justice to the legacies of both Motown and Detroit Rock City.

"An unremittingly fantastic record of the sort we're told they don't make any more. Irresistible Motown rhythms push dirty-rock riffs, lean soulful licks and Rachel Nagy's sassy vocals through 13 tracks, each of which leaves you wanting more." —The Sunday Times London

"Part fire, part whisper, and wants to turn your living room into a clothing-optional dance party." —Pitchfork Media

"Like alchemists, they mix alcohol with the spirits that swirl in the Detroit air, to create the greatest jukebox on earth... a sublime punk rock makeover of the Stooges and the Ronettes." —Plan B

"Music that makes even the best of Chuck Berry look like docile bubblegum." —Alibi

"This collection crackles and fizzes with an electrical intensity... and the real secret weapon is vocalist Rachel Nagy, a woman in possession of a voice so sultry and soulful that sex appeal constantly flows from the speakers like water from a spring." —XFM
