"High Octane" is a jiving, bluesy tune with brilliant piano work that the Killer would appreciate. Try and sit still to this number, it’s a great dance tune. "Time On My Hands" is a slow swinging, big hunk of love, west coast strolling ballad. Sweet. The title track "She’s Got A Great Big Beat" couldn’t get any fatter without bursting through the speaker seams. This jiver is showing it’s stuff. Tight, bright and wailing. The tune is FAT.
Like instrumentals? "The Romp" has it all, beautiful guitar lines, skin solos and bass work that is fine. A medium paced jiver that is cool as a cucumber.
