Eddie Kidd –Leave It To The Kid


Eddie Kidd –Leave It To The Kid/Big Jump At Picket’s Lock –Decca FR 13795 (1978 UK)

Leave It To The Kid is a bone-crunching-13-double-decker-hopping-semi -smash-stomper by the UK’s own Evel Knievel: Eddie Kidd. Of the Decca singles I have, this is by far the greatest as it’s a truly rousing performance featuring Eddie’s unmistakable vocal range along with a great driving string section. The track was even a "Tony Blackburn Record of the Week", and that man certainly knew his stuff! Eddie retired from stunts a while ago, but I am proud to acknowledge his legendary status here and now, if only for this amazing release.
