Before there were The Black Crowes, there were The Georgia Satelites, hailing from the same area and with a sound that their latter counterparts would sell millions of albums with. The Satelites' problem was that other than the delightful single "Keep Your Hands to Yourself," they just weren't able to come up with any big hits. The song was a delight, bursting through on rock radio that was at the time just shaking off its new wave hangover. "Battleship Chains" was a near miss follow up from the debut album, but after that the band never again was much of a chart success. With 20 selections, "Let it Rock" is a generous anthology. There are a healthy collection of covers, including Rongo Star's "Don't Pass Me By," John Fogerty's "Almost Saturday Night/Rockin' All Over the World" and Chuck Berry's "Let it Rock." The rest of the material is mostly solid, even if individual tunes sometimes have difficulty standing out. The CD booklet doesn't have a lyrics sheet, but does contain extensive liner notes. Overall, a decent anthology album from an often-overlooked southern rock band.
