Wax Doctor

Selected Works

March 2, 1998

Jungle/Drum'n'Bass

Smooth, jazzy drum'n'bass from the genre's mid-'90s glory days. Wax Doctor never released his long-promised album, but this collection compiles the best of his singles for R&S, Metalheadz, and Talkin' Loud. The title of the first track, "Atmospheric Funk," says it all.

Born to Be with You

1975

Rock & Roll

Lit throughout by the reflections of a middle-aged man acknowledging his prime was behind him, Born to Be With You comprised six new recordings, including a positively funereal rendering of "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands," a dramatic retread of Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil's "Make the Woman Love Me," and a dour Spector/Dion collaboration, "Good Lovin' Man." And the darkness didn't lift once.
