Editorial Review

Over the last seven years, Mark Knopfler and Emmylou Harris quietly recorded an album by stealing "a few precious hours of studio time here and there," as the ex-Dire Straits singer/guitarist puts it. Good thing they kept it largely under wraps--expectations would have pushed through the clouds, especially as Knopfler conjured 10 of the 12 cuts, and Harris, who writes potently, but little, contributed two ("Love and Happiness," "Belle Starr"). Yet now that it's here, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Knopfler and Harris All the Road Running
I just LOVE this CD.the harmonies are good.I like most of the songs but for a couple.I highly recommend it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A must have gem
Who would have thought? A queen of folk/ country teaming up with a british rocker.Think again!!!!It has happened before,I'm sure.Who cares?What matters is this wonderful jewel gone CD thought up by Emmylou and Knopfler.Consider the marital romp"This is us".You tap to it as you listen to the borderlinish tongue-in-cheek lyrics.Then you have "Donkey Town"an unifinished story whose end you yearn to figure out ..Then,the bluesy ballad"Right Now".Well,just play it and see how wonderful this work is.

5-0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful
This is a fine album that comes with great melodies, fine guitar playing, vocals with feeling, and interesting poetry. I don't know if I would call it a classic, but it certainly combines some of the best talents of two exceptional artists in a blend that works wondrously well. "All the Roadrunning" seems to ask the question of whether a musician's career is worth the pain. The answer is apparently yes as long as the dream remains. "Donkey Town" is an interesting story that makes you want to learn "the rest of the story". Although Knopfler's guitar work is exceptional, and Emmylou's vocals are as clear as daybreak, it's the lyrics that really make this whole record enjoyable for me. ... Read more

Few bands of the 1960s retained as much a sense of the roots of rock and roll as did Creedence Clearwater Revival. Their music is rife with country, rockabilly, and R&B influences, a combination that produced several hit singles--most of which are present on this collection. These include "I Heard It through the Grapevine," "Lodi," "Up Around the B ," "Who'll Stop the Rain," and of course "Bad Moon Rising." This is an excellent greatest-hits collection, and a perfect introduction to the music of a band that has been enduringly influential. Read more

Editorial Review

Immaculately prolific and blatantly ambitious, My Morning Jacket celebrate eight years as a recording band with what many refer to as a death knell: the double live album. Yet it takes but a single listen to declare that the brass neck and bravado pays off for this Kentucky band of longhairs, which released the 21-song epic as a companion piece to their concert DVD. Songwriter and singer Jim James's howling falsetto ricochets through MMJ's backlog of songs, which have been reenergized for the stage by the band's airtight live-show mettle. Dusting off remnants of the first two records like "I Think I'm Going to Hell" and the stunning "The Way That He Sings," then lining them up with the more contemporary "Gideon" and "What a Wonderful Man," MMJ never take their foot off the gas. In fact, rather than getting bogged down in concert-album fashion, Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the greatest live albums of all-time ****1/2
My Morning Jacket is an incredible band.I knew I could always count on them to release a solid psychedelic, southern rock record.But when "Z" came out in 2005, I was absolutely speechless; there was finally a band in the United States to compete with Radiohead, and incidentally, "Z" is probably the best album released since "Ok Computer."It took the band to a whole new level.They went from being solid to superstars; from doing obscure music magazine interviews to releasing a concert in indie theaters across the country.
5-0 out of 5 stars The ultimate live album from the best live act these days
My Morning Jacket has steadily been climbing the commercial and critical recongition in the last 6 years, with 2005's "Z" album ranking easily as one of the best albums of last year. MMJ has built its reputation as a tireless live act, and finally MMJ releases a live album, and what a joy it is.
5-0 out of 5 stars JamBase CD Review
The whole idea of a live album can be a bit tricky for all bands, especially for a great band like the Kentucky boys of My Morning Jacket. Let's face it - out of all the groundbreaking artists of the past 40 years who've cut a live one, about 90 percent of them seem to be sub-par. And no, the live downloaded Phish and .moe bootlegs that you listened to in your college dorm while sucking on a glass Jerome Baker piece don't count. Sure, the concerts at which they were recorded must've been enjoyable for the fans, but it can be very taxing when attempting to capture the essence of what it's like being there as a concertgoer in that exact moment. A double-disc album, Okonokos was recorded last November during a two-night stint at The Fillmore in San Francisco, while touring in support of their latest release Z, which was on many critics' year-end top ten lists. Okonokos exhibits the majestic semblance of MMJ's live shows and proves that they are not a jam band but instead a band that just knows how to jam.

Good country voice.Good listening.Several songs I really enjoy."Beer or Gasoline" is cute, "You're Gonna Love Me" and "Drinkin' Me Lonely" are well sung and "I'm Headed Your Way, Jose" is great fun."Flowers" is also good.I was pleasantly surprised with many good songs.(I bought it for his Nashivlle Star song, "Drinkin' Me Lonely) and was not disappointed with the whole album.

5-0 out of 5 stars HUGE Debut for Chris Young
It's very rare that I get a cd, much less a debut cd, from an artist and I can honestly say there's not a bad track in the bunch, but I'm glad to say that I can say that about this one.I watched and voted in the Nashville Star competiton and I am so glad to see this release.The song choices are excellent, the production is outstanding and what can I say about Chris's voice except that it's excellent!I would be happy to hear any of these tracks on the radio, but will say my favorites are of course the 1st single, "Drinkin' Me Lonely", the excellent message song "Flowers"and the tounge firmly planted in cheek "I'm Heading Your Way, Jose".The disc starts off on a high note with "Beer Or Gasoline" and doesn't let you down until "Who's Gonna Take Me Home" which is another great track.If you love your country, then you have to love newcomer Chris Young. Give him a listen and see if you don't agree.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chris Young Has Got It All
It has been a long time since I have been so excited about a CD.This CD is a great mix of music from a tear jerker (Flowers) to a couple of tunes that make you LOL (White Lightening and Your Way, Jose).Ballad or up tempo song, this guy can sing!He has that smooth Tennesee baritone voice that makes you keep listening to every song over and over again.I am a huge country music fan, and having heard this CD I can only think "YES, this is what I have been wanting to hear!" I love every song on the CD!This is only the beginning for the rising star of Chris Young!A must buy! ... Read more

Editorial Review

This packed double-disc is the slim option for fans who find the Eagles' vaunted greatest hits sets too little and the boxed set too hefty. Hit singles large and medium are here, often ("One of These Nights," "Hotel California") still sounding definitive and even tough. Large helpings of favorite album cuts are also included, along with a taster from a promised 2004 Eagles studio reunion. Unfortunately, "Hole in the World," Don Henley's response to September 11, feels just as empty and entitled as "Get Over It," the band's previous state-of-the-union message (from which the newer song represents a philosophical 180-degree turn). But for those seeking an overview of this Southern California juggernaut's successes, as well as telling comments from band members--mostly Henley and Frey--in a well-designed booklet, Read more

This is the best collection of Eagles hits. Every thing you could want is contained in this double disk set. Solid throug and through. Can't go wrong with this one. Must have.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Only Eagles' Collection You'll Need
This two CD set has every essential Eagles song. It has everything from the original greatest hits albums from the seventies, and then some. Moreover, the remastered sound means that these classic songs have never sounded better. The sheer number of songs on this two cd set means that this is not the tight set of hits that the classic 1975 collection was, but you can always skip over any extra tunes that you don't like (like the silly "Doolin-Dalton").
4-0 out of 5 stars Still flying high
I can understand the dismay of many Eagles fans, being presented with yet another compilation, a repackaging of the same oft-compiled material.It can seem like another of the Laurel Canyon crowd (Joni Mitchell is the prime example) preaching to us about the evils of materialism while they grow ever richer with reshuffled Best, Very Best and Very, Very Best albums.I suppose, as they are such keen environmentalists, there is some logic to all this recycling.

It might sound like a backhanded compliment to say Hem makes lite-rock with a country twist. But before you conjure up images of Phil Collins with a cowboy hat, let's clarify by saying the New York band essentially picks up where the Cowboy Junkies left off--crafting intimate southern songs that unfold with quiet dignity over a bed of strings, pedal-steel guitars and restrained piano flourishes. That's more like it. Besides, in Sally Ellyson, the group has a singer whose clear, sweet voice can't help but make even the most overcast song sound oddly beautiful. If only "I'll Dream Of You Tonight" and "Too Late To Turn Back Now" could be the soundtrack to every waiting room people would actually look forward to that next root canal. --Read more

A newcomer to the musical progression and legacy of the Byrds could hardly expect to find a better crash course than this: four discs with 99 songs, a DVD of ten previously unissued television performances, extensive annotation. Yet longtime fans of the band might wonder what the point is. Any riches buried in the vaults have long ago been mined--first in 1990's definitive four-disc Byrds box, then on Columbia's series of extended editions of every Byrds album in the catalog, replete with previously unreleased bonus tracks. By this late date, all possible revelations have been revealed, with the five previously unissued performances here of interest mainly to completists. The familiar music is glorious, of course--the chiming guitars and soaring harmonies that brought Bob Dylan and folk-rock to the top of the charts and then soared into the stratosphere with "Eight Miles High" and all but invented country-rock with Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars Byrdsbox II
There is no question that the Byrds (1964 - 1973) were one of the most important American rock 'n' roll bands during a true renaissance period for popular music, and that their body of work mostly stands tall to this day: great songs by a band overflowing with talented writers, musicians and vocalists of great style and adventurous spirit, who made a remarkable group of beautifully produced original recordings (fifteen albums issued between 1965 and 1973, counting "Pre-flyte" and two "Greatest Hits" sets). They influenced nearly all of their peers at one time or other, from the Beatles and Stones to Dylan and Buffalo Springfield (not to mention scores of respected bands who've emerged since the Byrds' last album). This boxed set is the group's second, following a similar career overview issued early in the CD era (1990). The good news is the sound on this set, as expected, is much better - warmer, more lifelike - than the earlier Byrds box. And there is less filler from 'reunion' gigs. But other than that, I can't imagine what use this set will serve. The Byrds made several classic albums, and like The Rolling Stones, Beach Boys, Beatles, Hendrix, and other major bands with both undeniable artistic credibility and popular success, their evolution is best heard as part of a chronological continuum. Yes, I got interested in the Byrds seriously after being given that 1990 box, but to be honest I haven't played the thing in over a dozen years. "Mr. Tambourine Man" (1965), "Turn! Turn! Turn!" (1965) and the genre-bending "Fifth Dimension" (1966) and "Younger Than Yesterday" (1967)came first, all reissued in greatly expanded and smartly annotated editions nearly a decade ago on both CD and (thanks to the Sundazed label) beautiful 180 gram vinyl editions - and those four are all classics belonging in any serious 'rock' related collection. (Sundazed issued even more, a box of pre-Columbia "Pre-flyte" era material and the extraordinary 2-ep set of alternates, experiments, and instrumentals, the magnificently packaged and mastered "Another Dimension", a companion piece of sorts to "5D" that adds yet more terrific material to the group's ouevre). With the loss of Gene Clark, followed by David Crosby at the end of 1967, the Byrds released some of their most astonishing work ever on "Notorious Byrd Brothers" (1968) and, with the addition of Gram Parsons, "Sweetheart Of The Rodeo" (1968). I would suggest that anyone reading this and wondering where to start their Byrds collection pick up each of these albums, now all midline priced, and read the liner notes, bask in the superb sound, and track the progress of both a great band and the decade that spawned it. The subsequent releases, following Parsons' and Chris Hillman's departure, may pale next to the first six masterpieces (and the many non-album singles and outtakes that are now appended to them), but each has its share of gems, especially "Ballad Of Easy Rider" (their eighth studio album, 1969) and the now-expanded-double "(Untitled)" (1970). Then there's the recently unearthed "1970 Fillmore" set, and the clean, fine guitar work on those late period Byrds albums by (the late) Clarence White. So much out there, on both CD and vinyl - why get another expensive overview? And why release one in 2006?
3-0 out of 5 stars Go ahead and say my review wasn't helpful, but let's be real
"There is a Season" is superior to the 1990 boxset in that Discs One and Two contains gems such as Gene Clark's "I Knew I'd Want You" and David Crosby's "What's Happening!", left off of the first set.
5-0 out of 5 stars Superb!
The new Byrds box set-There Is a Season does a great job of correcting some of the glaring omissions from the first box set from 1990. key Gene Clark songs are included such as Set You Free this Time and the single version of She don't Care About Time. There are other rarities such as a 1967 live version of He Was a Friend of Mine and Child Of The Universe from the Candy film soundtrack L.P. Also, there's a mono single version of Ladyfriend that seems clearer sounding. The set even throws in a couple of tracks from the underrated 1973 reunion L.P. as well as later Clarence White era instumental Nothing To It. This 99 track set is comprehensive and has all(or almost all) of the essential Byrds tracks. I wish they could have included the cosmic country song Change Is Now or the equally trippy Thoughts And Words but I won't quibble. Finally, the set is beautifully packaged with a 100 page color booklet which includes a bonus DVD whereyou get to see the original 5 Byrds perform in the 1960's before screaming girls and Go-Go dancers. So if you don't have all the remastered C.D.s, this new Byrds box would be a superb addition to your music collection! ... Read more

One question would be: What took him so long? After all, a contemporary like Van Morrison has sold boatloads of his single-disc best-of set to buyers wary of diving into that deep catalog without a primer to get them started. So three and a half decades into his solo career, Neil Young finally delivers his version of that most modest of albums--the pre-holiday "hits" overview. What's surprising, coming from such a proud maverick, is its conventionality. Granted, the original master mixes are a boon for fans, but otherwise, there's not much here for loyalists who quite likely already possess the original "Like a Hurricane" on a couple of albums, as well as a handful of live interpretations scanning the years. Since Young cracked the Top 10 only once (1972's "Heart of Gold"), this set is built around concert staples as "Cinnamon Girl," "Rockin' in the Free World," and "Hey, Hey, My My" rather than chart favorites. Despite Young's honorable standing as a still-vital graybeard, the disc is skewed heavily toward his early work, shortchanging some mighty productive recent years. Peripheral fans may find this set of interest, but faithful followers are better advised to investigate the DVD version, which, at least, includes videos, photos, lyrics, and Web links. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great Single CD Collection of Neil Young's Hits
Making a single disc of Neil Young's biggest hits is not an easy task. Back in 1977, he released a two disc career retrospective called Decade,which is still one of the greatest compilations in rock and roll history.
5-0 out of 5 stars THANKS, NEIL. THIS COULDN'T BE ANY BETTER !
If we look hard enough, we can always find something we don't like about "Greatest Hits" and "Best of" releases by our favorite recording artists. Mostly, it's the songs left off or the songs left on, but it can be other things as well. This time I'm not going to let my expectations ruin, what is to me, a perfect "Neil Young Greatest Hits" cd. The remastering is exquisite, and this is most evident on "Needle and the Damage Done". It sounds like Neil and his guitar are right in the room. The song selection is perfect, with a nice balance between the acoustic songs and the rockers. The songs are in chronological order, which gives the listener a sense of Young's career history. The album cover is a photo of Neil with an acoustic guitar, from a time in his career that most people probably associate with him. There are no songs after 1992, but rest assured that there will be a GH vol. 2 in the future. I'm a long time fan of Neil Young, and as a concise cd of his best work, this couldn,t be any better.

One of the freshest country albums of the year comes not out of Nashville, but rather New York, from a sporadic band with the unlikely (and somewhat suggestive) moniker of the Little Willies. At times, the fivesome (named in homage to Willie Nelson) hearkens to the great historic western-swing bands--crack, loose-limbed musicians fronted by a hypnotically sublime girl singer. If that sleepy female voice (and her distinctive piano) sounds astonishingly like Norah Jones, that's because it Read more

I purchased this CD before going on vacation. With both a seven-year-old and a nine-year-old in the car, we had to endure the loud soundtracks of movies from the back seat. And, when I suggested that we turn off the TV and listen to a CD, they were both unhappy! That is, until I popped in this CD. These happy tunes made all of us smile and my kids even started to sing along! If you want a CD that will make your day, purchase this one!

I'm a recording engineer by trade.I sit in little rooms with no windows and big speakers listening to the same song for 15 hour stretches for weeks in a row.Every now and again a record will roll through that is actually fun to make.This sounds like one of those recordings.

A big Neil Young fan in the 60s and 70s, I hadn't followed his music in many years (or any other popular music, for that matter). One of my 8th grade students, knowing how I feel about the war in Iraq, gave me Neil's LIVING WITH WAR. I loved it, so I checked out reviews of PRAIRIE WIND, and I bought it. As far as I'm concerned, it's a masterwork. The songs are incredibly moving, especially for someone who is Neil's age. I love this man for having made it.

5-0 out of 5 stars Neil Young is Mr Soul
This is an essential Neil Young album. Taking yet another turn in his long, interesting and forever relevant career Neil follows a country rock muse and his words and music is delivered in a heltfelt and moving way that is straight from his soul. Neil faced several personal traumas during 2005, not the least the death of his father and his own health concerns which he has since rebounded from in emphatic fashion.

5-0 out of 5 stars "She wrote me a letter and she wrote it so kind" from Not Dark Yet.
I'm new to Bob Dylan's music and I must say I really loved this cd. I was unsure about listening to it since I wasn't all that enamoured with Dylan's voice but when you listen to music it just clicks into place. Dylan is a master at lyrics and mood. Each song has a unique mood or message that he conveys in what seems like an effortless manner. I fell in love with some of his songs of heartbreak and change.
5-0 out of 5 stars Greatmini collection of Dylan's work
Enjoy the range of songs. They include many of my favorites. I especially like it for my vechicle with limited space. Good sound too, sounds as good as the originals , ( as recorded on the LPs). Ah miss those LPs.

5-0 out of 5 stars Essential Bob Dylan is essentially great!
Essential, from the word "essence"!There's no claim that it will cover 34 years of music history, so don't listen to people who complain that it doesn't cover enough. It's the essence of Dylan and it's great as it is; essentially excellent music from one of the greatest singer-song writers ever.If you want something more "in depth" get "No Direction Home", the documentary and soundtrack cover it all. Also, "Essential Bob Dylan" isn't just for beginners.I grew up a Dylan fan and I still am. I love the album. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars HIS MASTERPIECE!
All I want to say has already been said.This is one of a handful of albums you can listen to all the way through and not hit a bad song.It is pure perfection, Taupin's atmospheric lyrics and John's melodies and piano working hand-in-hand.It is the most cinematic album ever made, meaning all you have to do is listen and you'll watch a movie with every song.I love the atmosphere this album creates- take this on a road trip through the country, roll down the windows, and take it all in...
5-0 out of 5 stars I'd like to go where the rivberboat sails tonight...
Ordinarily I'd give this album four stars, but the remastered version is phenomenal and the two bonus tracks bump it up to five.
3-0 out of 5 stars Fans can never be objective...
From the OBJECTIVE reviewer...fans and critics alike think this is a masterpiece, and although there isn't a bad song on the album there also isn't anything classic that stands out. Hence this country-esque album just doesn't rise to the top of "best Elton albums." ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Melissa Etheridge - Greatest Hits
Her voice is magical, and this greatest hits CD is simply a roaring tribute to one of this generations greatest female singers.

5-0 out of 5 stars Five stars is not enough
I have been a big fan of Melissa since 1988. Her voice along with her strong lyrics that come from her very soul (and mine too) make her one of the best singers/composers America has ever seen or heard. Her passionate character and her compassion amaze me. I got "The Road Less Traveled" even though I already have most of the songs. Then I went to see her in concert in NYC. God, I love her ever more now (if it is ever possible). How can such great person exist among us? May God and all the angels be with her at all times, and may her message continue to touch our hearts and heal our bodies and minds. All songs on the CD are special. I would buy hundreds of CD's to distribute them if I could. ... Read more

Editorial Review

Florida’s brilliant singer-songwriter Sam Beam expands Iron & Wine from solo project to a gaggle of friends and family on slide guitar, percussion, and backing vocals on his second album. Fans need not worry--the hushed immediacy and rich melodies remain the focus--but new flavors abound. For instance, the strange "Cinder And Smoke" sounds like a collaboration (with banjos of course) between America, Robert Wyatt and Low. Meanwhile, "On Your Wings," "Free Until They Cut Me Down," and "Teeth in the Grass" showcase a brooding, earthy, Southern-rock-on-laudanum side that the band had previously only demonstrated in concert. It's rare when an artist who's become known for bedroom recordings makes the transition to the studio to produce work that's better--Daniel Johnston, Lou Barlow, and Liz Phair all made their defining moments crouched above a cassette recorder at home. But Beam is the exception to the rule, as he has easily bested himself on the second Iron & Wine album. Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars ZZZZZzzzzzzz...
Oh my, what can I say about this whispery little train wreck.It's third-rate coffee house music that struggles to be heard over conversations (as it should be).In the quiet sanctuary of my den, it's revealed for all it isn't.It isn't clever, musically or lyrically, and just drones along seemingly forever.My audiophile friends would like it because the sparse notes and little extraneous noises would make their overly analytical and fatiguing systems sound magical.
5-0 out of 5 stars There are things that drift away
Our Endless Numbered Days is a quite marvellous album. Sam Beam's gentle, poignant songs about love, life and the changing of the seasons are simplicity itself. Played out mainly on picked acoustic guitar or banjo, but with added piano and percussion when the occasion calls, the strength of Our Endless Numbered Days is undoubtedly Beam's gorgeous, hushed voice. It infuses the album with a wistful sense of loss and longing, and is beautifully underlined by the interplay with the (female) backing vocals. Lyrically there is an elemental, almost biblical, resonance to the songs which I haven't come across before. The album's timelessness can certainly be attributed to the fact that it could have been written at any point over the last hundred years: there are no references to late 20th or 21st century life that I can think of.
5-0 out of 5 stars Just drift away
this album ( and his other albums) make me feel the way Norah Jones did a few years back. this is the type of sound that you want to listen to while you drift away with aglass of wine. absolutely amazing ... Read more

Editorial Review

Among producers, his name remains the simile of choice. If some hotshot studio whiz emerges in, say, hip-hop, he's inevitably labeled "the Phil Spector of rap." That's quite a statement given that decades have passed since this boy from the Bronx remodeled rock & roll to suit his own visions of grandeur. The story of the girl-group auteur is a fascinating one. Spector composed a No. 1 hit at 17 (the Teddy Bears' "To Know Him Is to Love Him," its title inspired by the inscription on his father's tombstone). By 19 he was head of A&R for Atlantic Records. By the time he was 22, he'd founded his own label (Philles) and was churning out Wall of Sound hits at an unprecedented clip, beginning with the Crystals' "He's a Rebel." The four-disc Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars The Genius of"Teen-age Opera"
The work of Phil Spector has withstood the tests of time, critics and "grown-ups" that rejected the "Boy Genius" very early in his career, but later had to admit their naked ignorance as he turned out hit after classic hit.This is THE DEFINITIVE COLLECTION, released on Phil's own label, the original analog tapes hand-picked and mastered under his direction, and they're all here - Ike & Tina, The Righteous Brothers, The Crystals, Ben E. King, Gene Pitney, even Spector's own teen group, the Teddy Bears.Spector was renowned for his infamous preference for "stacking" instrument upon instrument on the analog tape, crowding Gold Star Studios with dozens of soon-to-be-famous musicians and singers (Leon Russell, Hal Blaine, Glen Campbell, Jim Gordon, Larry Knechtel, Barney Kessel, Jack Nitzsche, Don Randi, Billy Strange, Jim Horn, Red Callendar), all playing at once with very little "overdubs," resulting in this mesmerizing, densely erotic cacophony that came to be called the "wall of sound."These are the songs that have been called "teenage mini-operas" because they spoke of unrequited love, pubescent loss, the torment of adolescence and rebellion, and yet they spill over with pure joy and unabashed beauty, and mostly clock in under 3 minutes.This is a "must-have" jewel for anyone enamored of the wonderful era of "real musicians" playing "real charts," directed by the true innovator in recorded art.It's an especially rich set of "girl-groups," and though the collection may be heavily weighted with The Ronettes, it's fully understandable since Ronnie Bennett became Phil's wife and (still, I think) his life-long muse.There are too many great songs to go into here, just suffice it to say that to fully grasp the power of American pop music, you have to understand the impact of Spector.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Great Wall of Sound!!!
Phil Spector produced some of the best music in the history of Rock and Roll, hands down, or should I say hands up. Well, the Ronnettes were great and that wall of sound was great as well. I'm sure that wall of sound was heard on Februrary the third as well as those great times in the 60's. The vocal harmonies are infectious and those sound effects are great, especially the shots going off in the background of the mind of the legendary producer. How was all of this achieved? Was it just weird timing or did he actually have these goals planned out, that's one of the questions that may never be answered, but at least we are left with some excellent music. Of course such a genius producer may have been a genius in many aspects including music, but not necessarily confined to it. To set something up this elaborate would be speculative, no pun intended, but how does a producer like this work in the studio? Does he plan out every move or is he more spontaneous, does he just go with the flow once he's on to something, or was the production carefully planned. More than likely, this production was a spontaneous act of a talented mind, and so twisted in such a way that all of the achievements are hidden behind the wall of sound. The creatively sick way to achieve nothing. An end to a song like no other than the great clown Gacy, the twin to our producer hero, the real John Wayne, the real hero, not a clown at all, but an incredibly adept individual, a true killer in every sense. And I'm sure he will now be having much fun in the mens showers with his new friends!!! What a great accomplishment!!!! Sincerely, Bunster Gorbin

5-0 out of 5 stars Dirty and Mean with good guitar work
The whole album has that old southern blues rock grind, but it doesn't lose the Ray Wylie effect.Good guitar work throughout the entire album.As most of Ray Wylie's songs they are songs of blood, sweat and grease with a touch of sin and redemption.He and Gurf Morlix really sound like they are having fun playing together and that always makes an album special to me.
5-0 out of 5 stars Love at first note...
I can't get this cd out of my player. I love Austin music and Ray is the best. The swampy, sultry sound can take you away. The lyrics are amazing and certain lines stick in my head. Amazing stuff and a far cry from 'Up Against the Wall Redneck Mothers' although I like that too.

5-0 out of 5 stars Middle-of-the-night music, fuel for bonfires, dice, and showdowns
Ray Wylie Hubbard's "Snake Farm" is one evil, growling monster of a record, a finely focused muscular effort that effuses grit, malice, and funk. The sound ripples with thick, raw grooves that compliment the subject matter: the devil, women, redemption and damnation, hexes, and guitars. Clearly, this stuff is middle-of-the-night music, fuel for bonfires, dice, and showdowns.

Editorial Review

Tony Joe White says he always saw the friends he invited to play on his new album--Eric Clapton, Mark Knopfler, J.J. Cale, Michael McDonald, and the late Waylon Jennings--as "keepers of the fire." They're also premier custodians of loneliness and despair, the two emotions that lie at the heart of this hypnotic submersion into country/swamp blues. From the kickoff track, "Run for Cover," with Wayne Jackson of the Memphis Horns, these meditations on mourning--lost lovers, spiritual struggles, anxiety that knows no name and no bottom--grab the listener fast and pull him down into swirling dark waters. For that reason, there's a numbing sameness--on occasion, two songs back-to-back seem to simply be extensions of each other. But while Jennings's effort is more a portrait of the artist testing his chops after suffering a stroke, other collaborations stick in the mind. The dour Knopfler shows up on the most optimistic song, "Not One Bad Thought," but his vocals still sound like the barely uttered words of a depressive on a bad down. Clapton's voice remains characteristically modest on "Did Somebody Make a Fool Out of You," yet his guitar work--measured and full of emotion--proves what you don't play is as important as what you do. Still, the best pairing is that with Michael McDonald on "Baby, Don't Look Down." When White's smoky rumble meets McDonald's bruised, angelic tenor, you'll know why God made music. Read more

I bought this CD after being in Vegas and watching the reaction of people when Jimmy Buffett music was played. Everyone relaxed and started to sing along. I do not sing well, but everyone around me could have cared less. We had a great time! I purchased this CD because of the fantastic amount of music it contains. Two CD's packed with more Buffett than any other I've seen. I played it at my daughters wedding rehersal dinner and it really started the fun. Buy it, play it, enjoy it with a drink, and sing!!!!
