JAKE E LEE Retraced Mascot Records (2005)

Guitarist Jake E Lee made his name with Ozzy in the mid-80’s and then as part of the excellent blues rockers Badlands, who featured the late, great Ray Gillen on vocals.

On this covers collection Lee hooks-up with Tim Bogert (Vanilla Fudge), Aynsley Dunbar (Journey/UFO) and ex-MSG vocalist Chris Logan. Highlights include a rip roaring version of Montrose’s ‘Rock Candy’ and Lee shows his guitar playing talents on Free’s ‘I’ll Be Creepin’.

Playing wise it is faultless and with a tight rhythm section of Bogert/ Dunbar you’d expect nothing less, whilst Lee gives these classics a reverential treatment by keeping pretty close to the originals.

Vocalist Chris Logan is well suited to the mainly blues rock nature of these songs although you do wish Ray Gillen was still around. I’d have loved to hear him tackling this set of tunes - that’s no slight on Logan who puts in a more than capable display on here.

Good to see Jake E Lee back with a solid covers set, nothing special but enjoyable for fans of 70’s classic rock.
