• Themes of crime and punishment have always featured strongly in music. Ace’s new CD is an hour long, not so much celebration but as documentation of heroes, villains, cops and robbers and their role in rock’n’roll. • Inebriation, incarceration, stick-ups, showdowns, ‘failure to support’ and all manner of other non-law abiding activities are on Ace’s rockin’ docket, although we plead not guilty to charges of crimes against music that this compilation may or may not elicit. • “Criminal Records” also heralds the work of hard-bitten cops from the mean streets of New York and Los Angeles, and those notable heroes and villains of the old Wild West that came into our living rooms on a weekly basis during TV’s golden era. • The featured suspects are all guilty of being entertaining in the extreme. Almost all of the tracks on this arresting set are new to Ace CD, and several have never been reissued before. • Ace’s convictions are that we are sure this will be a best cell-er - buy or stock it now, or be prepared to suffer the penalty for digital delinquency. 1.
