Before transforming into druggy dance-groovers with 1990's awesome and influential acid-house single "Loaded", Primal Scream, led by vocalist/ex-Jesus and Mary Chain drummer Bobby Gillespie, started life as a crew of anorak-wearing guitar-popsters in the mid-'80s UK tradition of The Pastels or The Television Personalities. Four years later, Primal Scream reinvented itself once again. The cover's images of a neon Confederate flag and a photo of late Funkadelic guitarist Eddie Hazel scream the band's intent: GIVE OUT BUT DON'T GIVE UP is a '70s-style Southern rock album given a massive infusion of funk. Recorded at Memphis' legendary Ardent Studios by Black Crowes mastermind George Drakoulias, and featuring guest spots by everyone from George Clinton to Tom Petty sideman Benmont Tench, the album mixes its musical metaphors well. The clear highlight is "Rocks", a brilliant stomping single that sounds so much like the Faces that Rod Stewart himself later covered it.

A much underrated album, actually prefer it to the much regarded screamadelica.

Great Price... Heat.......

Dirty Hits (Best of Primal) is a penny cheaper at Choices UK too....

I agree, it get's panned a lot but if you listen to it for it's own merits & try not to compare it to any other Screamadelica stuff it's a fine album.

Oh, much better than Screamadelica. Very Stones inspired.

Saying that I saw the tour this album and it was a very boring gig. Like watching cardboard cut-outs and having the album playing.

Have to say I found this a big let down after Screamadelica. Nothing to do with the change of direction, just a lot patchier (not as many good songs).

Good deal though.
