Arriving in the post and complete with a handwritten letter was the TR5’s two-track CD. Rather than this being an official independent release, it would appear The TR5’s is dipping their toes in the water to gauge reactions to their efforts. With the giveaway clue printed boldly on the artwork to what sort of music was behind this CD, there is a charming old-school feel surrounding the entire package, despite no clues to the actual tracks recorded. However, if it is further investigation The TR5’s requires, then they certainly gained the attention of this music paper. What transpires are two cover songs, and brave choices given the artists covered: namely Eddie Cochran’s ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ and Carl Perkin’s ‘Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby’. With such impeccable taste, The TR5’s also matches with aptitude when covering these two classics. First up is ‘Twenty Flight Rock’ and it is as bright and lively as the original, with the vocals of Rusty impressing throughout and the supporting instruments keeping apace and skipping between the definitions associated with this release of skiffle and early rock ‘n’ roll. If there must be a winner however, then ‘Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby’ just about edges into first place given the added attitude heard in both guitar and vocals, which is always a bonus when it comes to rock and roll. As first impressions go, it looks like a second date is on the cards with The TR5’s given the quality of these two cover songs.
