Bri­tish rock­a­billy hero strikes gold This al­bum marks a whole new chap­ter for Higham as he fo­cuses on his own mu­sic un­der his own name. The in­flu­ence of his heroes Ed­die Cochran and Gene Vin­cent still looms large over his vo­cal de­liv­ery with up­beat hooks aplenty, espe­cially the Jools Hol­land-guest­ing When You Smile. Higham cuts loose with his elec­tri­fy­ing Gretsch play­ing in The Blues Is The Blues be­fore hand­ing the mic to Robert Plant for the su­perb ren­di­tion of Bill Allen And The Back Beats’ Please Give Me Some­thing. Hell’s Ho­tel is a very strong suite, the sound of a mod­ern rock­a­billy gui­tar hero re­ally com­ing into his own as a song­writer. [DH] Stand­out track: The Blues Is The Blues For fans of: Brian Set­zer, Ed­die Cochran
