This album is worth the price for this song alone, and you all have bought at least one album for one song in your lifetime.I first heard it, being a Leo Kottke fan,when my ears perked up as it is played over the closing credits of ' Goin South ', a hilarious Jack Nicholson movie. This guy plays with calss and style, you will not be disappointed.

I'm not sure this is the best debut ever...I like "6 & 12 String Guitar" a lot more, and didn't Charlie Parker record "Koko" on his first studio date?5-0 out of 5 stars Most Auspicious Debut Ever?
When I saw Ry Cooder live in the early seventies, he was wearing baggy blue silk pants, pink satin pumps, a bandana, and a Hawaiian shirt. Eclectic garb? You bet. But somehow it all went together, a perfect sartorial analogue to his musical eclectism.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars one of the quintessential albums of the 80s
The first Lone Justice Album has an edgy, slightly raw feeling that showcases Maria McKee's vocal prowess better than any of her other efforts.While I have everything she ever made this remains my favorite.And the group rocks.I had the privilege of seeing them in an LA club shortly after this album came out and they were fantastic live.
5-0 out of 5 stars Found her Again
Thought I'd review other's reviews before submitting mine, and it seems like a lot of people wonder why this album didn't get much notice, didn't sell.....I'm just glad I found it 20 years ago or so.It's as emotionally riveting to me today as the first time I ever heard her voice.I sang along with her songs during some dark & sunny days in my life.I dreamed of the day I would became a mother so I could sing her songs to my baby girl.I sang Maria's songs to my baby girl when she was still inside me, and I do to this day.Her voice is immensely appreciated by those that listen to her, whether we are 1 or a million.

5-0 out of 5 stars .The Apex of Maria McKee's Recordings
I was on the east coast and so had no direct access to the early-mid 1980s 'cowpunk' wave that provided real music worth hearing to Southern California club audiences. At the time, both commercially backed Country and rock 'n' roll were going downhill at an alarming speed. But prospects for a brighter future were on the horizon.

I like this concert.I think Roger Waters did a really good job of getting a good support group for this show.It's a shame that he couldn't get the support group that belongs in this concert - the other members of Pink Floyd.It's interesting that the two Germanies could unite, but Pink Floyd couldn't.Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars For drinking beer & looking out your back door.
Hooray! 11 years, and we get an album that by most artists' standards would've been fairly enjoyable...John Fogerty is a rocker, as evidenced by the new live DVD; you wouldn't know it from listening to "Blue Moon Swamp." I'm going back to listen to "Eye of the Zombie."

5-0 out of 5 stars Fogerty's best solo album
John Fogerty comes out hiding every couple of years and releases a new album. The Grammy winning "Blue Moon Swamp" is a delightful album full of great songs touching on blues, country, rock and gospel over the course of its 14 songs. 14 songs you ask?Yep. The album has been reissued with two solid tracks recorded during the original sessions. "Endless Sleep" and "Just Pickin'" aren't as essential as the other tracks on the album but they are a nice bonus for fans that may not have purchsed the album before or are replacing it.
4-0 out of 5 stars check this out too
I am a huge fan of John Fogerty's solo music and his music with CCR. If you enjoy his roots-rock style then I strongly recommend that you check out the following:

Editorial Review

Texas native T Bone Burnett is celebrated for his production efforts on the behalf of Gillian Welch, Counting Crows, and Elvis Costello. His solo albums released in the '80s and early '90s on Warner Brothers and Columbia didn't sell, but they generated a fair share of mostly positive press (doubters are put off by the righteous air of some of his songs). This self-titled country-folk gem from 1986, however, is as good as anything in Burnett's extensive oeuvre, even if few people have heard it. Exceptional originals (the ought-to-be-classics "River of Love" and "I Remember") are expertly sequenced with faultlessly chosen covers (Tom Waits's "Time," Bob Neuwirth's "Annabelle Lee," the country standard "Poison Love").Sidemen David Hidalgo and Dobro virtuoso Jerry Douglas shine without showboating and Burnett has never sounded so guileless and relaxed.

5-0 out of 5 stars INCREDIBLE piece of music
At this price, you should buy 3 and keep them in storage for future generations. The musicianship on this CD is awesome, the sound is pristine, the songs are very well written. It's old-fashioned folky country, no drums to speak of, no electric instruments. It was recorded live to 2-track in the studio. My one caveat. When this originally came out on LP record, it was shorter, without the extra "instrumentals" and such. Actually, it was better that way! (6 stars instead of 5) Also, the album, when it was recorded direct, was recorded simultaneously to analog and digital, so the master for the two of them is slightly different. Call me an old fuddy-duddy, but the analog master that the LP is based on sounds better. Keep in mind that in the 80s digital recording technology was not where it is before, no matter what anybody says...
5-0 out of 5 stars Good album
If you like country music, or if you want to explore T-Bone Burnett's music, either way, it is very well written and recorded.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Timeless Classic
This album is my favorite from an artist better known for producing others music than making his own. I first heard this back when I was still into bluegrass, jazzgrass, Dawg music, etc. some 15 years ago. I've moved on from most of that type of music. But the songs on this album still hang in there with anything else you'd care to listen to. It is on par with Sargent Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band as being a perfectly produced work. No matter how many times you listen to it, you just can not wear this music out. ... Read more

Editorial Review

This southwestern super session brings together Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Chicano country stars Freddy Fender and Rick Treviño, Texas rocker Joe Ely, norteño accordion wizard Flaco Jimenez, and Tejano bandleader Ruben Ramos to pay homage to the Texan-Mexican tradition. The music is acoustic and generally string-driven, with guitars and violins recalling early mariachi and dancing accordion lines. There are some great party tunes, but ballads are the rule, and Treviño and Fender both show superb grace in their vocals. Ely turns in a heartfelt version of Woody Guthrie's "Deportee," but almost all the songs are in Spanish (with translations in the booklet). Each features only one or two of the headlining singers and there is none of the crowded feel of some all-star efforts, just a relaxed and swinging exploration of the classic Tejano sound. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Great music!!!
I love this CD. It combines an interesting mix of artists whose music together or individually is great. The ballads are wonderful and the whole cd is wonderful to listen to. I would recommend it highly!

3-0 out of 5 stars Not my taste
I readily accept all the other reviewers' assertions that this album represents outstanding Tejano music--it's just not my taste.I have no previous experience with this musical tradition, and I was hoping for something more along the lines of Eddie Palmieri or Arturo Sandoval.To me, this sounds like the kind of pleasant but bland music one would barely notice in the background at a Mexican restaurant.If you're hoping for something with drive or a bit of an edge, this isn't it.

4-0 out of 5 stars Crazy Legs - Jeff Beck and The Big Town Playboys
Having sampled much of Jeff Becks work in the past, I felt it was time to try something a little different from the man.This album finds Jeff in ground not really explored by his considerable talent before.
2-0 out of 5 stars Is this it?
The rap side of Rockabilly.In other words it all sounds the same and becomes tedious.Guitar Shop had some innovation and feeling to it. Crazy Legs is just not up to snuff and reflects his lack of meaningful direction.Beck needs to get back on the edge of Fusion.A genre that has been sorely missed in the Rock and Roll world.

4-0 out of 5 stars "Share some love with the unknown one"
In his 1987 historical drama Walker, director Alex Cox (Repo Man) told the story of William Walker (Ed Harris), an American renegade who, in the 1850s, took over as president of Nicaragua. The film caught a lot of flak from critics because of its use of deliberate anachronisms (TVs, helicopters, etc.) to draw satirical parallels between Walker's corrupt behavior and the US government's involvement in Nicaragua in the 1980s; it quickly sank into obscurity -- and sadly, so did its soundtrack...
5-0 out of 5 stars I waited 15 years for this CD...
Finally, a CD release of this wonderful soundtrack. Strummer immersed himelf in 19th century Central American music and came out with a soundtrack that was perfect for the movie and instantly put him in league with Morricone.

5-0 out of 5 stars It is their best since Kiko
David Hidalgo has to be placed up there when it comes to all-time great songwriters. This album is more diverse than some of their later albums and has arguably their greatest song ever in the title track "Good Morning Aztlan." I now own most of Los Lobos stuff and place this album probably as their third of fourth best and that is a compliment. If you are a fan, you will love this album. I must disagree with the person that wrote the official notes on top about this CD. I do not feel that the songs sung in Spanish are the best on this album, quite the opposite. The best songs are the ones penned and sung by Hidalgo.

4-0 out of 5 stars The first song is worth the price of the CD...
Put this CD in your stereo, press play, and CRANK it..."Done Gone Blue" rocks out unlike any other song they have ever done.A jamming start to a great album...highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars Back on the Right Track
After two disappointing albums "Collossal Head" and "This Time" it seems that Los Lobos are back on the "right" track. Though not as consistent as their great albums ( Neighborhood, Kiko etc.) there are some very strong tracks here. "Tony y Maria" and "What in the World" are beautiful ballads. And the title track is a great rocker. Great guiltar playing all over, and I simply love the voice of David Hidalgo. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the best
There are two reasons why I decided to make this my first review of a product ever:
4-0 out of 5 stars Read this review before you buy
The high quality of the music on this CD is notable. The version of 'Senor Don Gato' alone is worth the $13.99 pricetag. However this is not a CD for you if you are looking for upbeat, light hearted humor for young children. There are a few songs that many would feel are of questionable content with a significant gross-out factor. In particular, the song 'Godfrey' which in my view is only appropriate for children who are old enough to understand black comedy. The song tells the story of "Godfrey the sickly, unemployed, amateur children's magician". It describes how Godfrey makes magic shows with mucus root-beer floats. The song ends with him in a straight jacket never to be seen again. A couple other tracks "Funky Butt" and I'm my own Grandpa" might not be what you want a preschooler singing.
5-0 out of 5 stars We ALL love it!
My one-year-old, my husband, and I all love this CD. The alternative country artists manage to simultaneously bring something innovative, but classic to each track. The performances are quite clever, and I can see my son listening to this well into his preschool and elementary years. He currently smiles and dances to the music and singing. But he will come to appreciate some of the lyrical nuances as he gets older too. Personally, I love this because I don't get bored listening to it; in part because of the great sounding music and singing, but also because it's a compilation . . . a perfect combination in my opinion! ...

A wonderful imaginary and silly story of a Mexican-American family traveling to Mexico in a flying balloon to celebrate Papa Lalo's birthday. The versions of "La Bamba", 'Wooly Bully", and "Cielito Lindo" are great on this CD and the narration between songs adds a lot to this CD. A little bit of Spanish is a plus to follow the narration. You should listen to this CD from the beginning to the end, do not try to shuffle this CD, otherwise, you would miss the main theme of the album.

Whether this is the 'ultimate' Nils collection depends on whether you're a long-time fan or not. A couple of omissions have occurred. His signature song, "Back It Up", isn't on this CD, nor is his blisteringversion of Bobby Womack's "It's All Over Now." The former can befound on Nils Lofgren, "Nils Lofgren" (his first solo disc),which I suppose is the idea - buy that CD too. Okay, I won't begrudge thisCD that little faux-pas; anything that adds to Nils' coffers in some way isOK by me.Read more

The Head Cat brings together Lemmy (Motörhead), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), and guitar wizard Danny B. Harvey (Rockats) for a batch of cover tunes from Buddy Holly ("Tell Me How," "Not Fade Away"), Carl Perkins ("Matchbox"), and Johnny Cash ("Big River"). A longtime rockabilly fan and skilled harmonica player (as evidenced on "You Got Me Dizzy"), Lemmy does at times sound a bit out of place and tentative in a setting stripped of the unmitigated power and unsubtle glory heard on all the best Motörhead albums, but there's a rugged charm hearing him beside Phantom and Harvey, who lend authenticity and spark to the affair.

4-0 out of 5 stars A fine debut
The Georgia Satellites issued three high-octane rock n' roll records in the latter half of the 1980s, at a time when such a thing wasn't excactly in vogue. This one was the first, and a sizable hit, mostly due to the presence of the #2 hit single "Keep Your Hands To Youself". 5-0 out of 5 stars one of the most unappreciated bands - and still are
Let me start by saying that The Beatles, Rolling Stones, Pearl Jam's Vitalogy, Joni Mitchell, Metallica's Master of Puppets, and of course Bob Dylan are still the tops of all time. But I just can't help but comment on the 'sleepers'. The G.S. fits this to a tee. Keep your hands to yourself is cute - nuff said. battleship chains showed us a bit more versatility to them. but "Nights Of Mystery" and it's bleed into "Every Picture Tells A Story" is one of the few "i remember exactly where I was when I first heard that song" songs out there. I know the intersection I was passing when I first heard Eddie Veder bark out the lines to "Last Exit" just as I did when the first guitar riff of "Nights of Mystery" kicked in.4-0 out of 5 stars Good debut!
This was a good debut by a band who had a real chance to be something. However, a weaker second record scared people away. This has some highlights, especially the first half. Those who know the best known songs may want to seek out "In The Land of Salvation and Sin" somewhere and come back to this one. ... Read more

BOTTOM LINE: THIS IS THE BEST CD I'VE EVER HEARD IN MY LIFE, AND I'VE HEARD OVER 100,000 CD IN MY LIFE - SO FAR. I WOULD HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS CD FOR THE FOLLOWING REASONS: 1. PRACTICALLY EVERY SONG IS A FUTURE CLASSIC. 2. THE MUSICIANSHIP IS STUPENDIUS! 3. YOU WILL LOSE ABOUT 5 POUNDS A DAY FROM ALL OF THE UNCONTROLLABLE DANCING YOU WILL BE DOING ONCE YOU PRESS PLAY ON YOUR CD PLAYER. AND FINALLY, IF YOU ARE DEPRESSED IN ANY WAY, SHAPE, OR FORM, YOU WILL BE SMILING, HAPPY, AND 100 PERCENT CONTENT AFTER JUST ONE LISTEN TO THE BEAUTIFUL GIRLS.

4-0 out of 5 stars instant pick me up.... this CD is a must have
i got this cd after i had "learn yourself" for about a year and i love it ten times more. this cd is not really that alike to their first album and i would reccomend buying this one first if you have never heard them because it kind of touches ground on their different talents within the group moreso than learn yourself which is mainly acoustic.

5-0 out of 5 stars The only punk(ish)/country album ever? Clearly the finest.
Man, can these guys write music.The two brothers from the DILS, one of L.A.'s original punk bands got together with A. Escovedo from that very musical family if I'm not mistaken.This first album is head and shoulders better than their second album much in the same way that TELEVISION's Marquee Moon debut album is that much better than their second one.
5-0 out of 5 stars You Need This
Before the Americana/No Depression music came out, there was Rank And File. Back then it was known as Cowpunk (whatever that meant) as the Kinman Brothers, formerly leading the Punk band Dils, moved to Austin and recuited then unknown Alejandro Escovedo and Slim Evans and became Rank and File. On the album, side one had some heavy hitters such as Amanda Ruth (later covered by the Everly Brothers), Glad I'm Not In Love, and the band named Rank And File to which they throw in part of Ernest Tubb's Thanks a Lot to really throw a curve and The Conductor Wore Black to end things out on a classic note. On the title track Sundown, Tony Kinman's voice echos Johnny Cash, although on further listening, probaly inspired upcoming Nashville singer Josh Turner (probaly not but would it be amazing if Josh Turner had a copy of Sundown tucked there between the Randy Travis and Johnny Cash records in his collection), and thought the next three songs are pretty good, the album ends with the rocking Coyote.Soon afterwards Jason And the Scorchers would surface with their Fervor EP, which later Uncle Tupelo would later incoporate both styles into their No Depression leadoff, but Sundown was pioneering stuff, again falling into the too rock for country and too country for rock radio, which lead some lucky listeners to hear it on public radio (to which I heard the Rank And File song first and was knocked out and it took forever to find the album)

4-0 out of 5 stars A glimpse of what is too rare nowadays...
Someone in this space, although a fan, described this release as "trash". I take issue with that comment. I too, am a BoDeans fan from way back. They are one of those bands like The Replacements, Pixies, They Might Be Giants and Violent Femmes. They were never a large commercial success with radio-friendly hits, but had a catalog of many successful releases and gigantic fan bases .
4-0 out of 5 stars The Ultimate Bar Band
I saw the BoDeans on this tour and this disk does a very good job of capturing the enthusiam in the show.Sammy and the boys don't dissapoint and this disk is no exception.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of the BEST Live Albums of Recent years
This Album byt he Bodeans is as good or better than Joe Dirt Car which was/is one of the best Rock and Roll Live albums ever put out. I can't beleive the fidelity it's just super. I think the Bodeans are one of the most underestimated and under appreciated bands of the last 10 years and it's a shame because they desever super star status for their music and perseverence. I've played this album in some way every day since I got in the mail from Amazon. I recommend getting it from one of the sellers just because you'll save some money and most stores don't even carry it. The drummer on this album is Kenny Aronoff who is one of the BEST drummers around.. He was John Mellencamp's drummer untill Mellencamp went hip p/mix/r&r etc... in other words during his peak years and his drumming on this album is exceptional

Editorial Review

Singer Maria McKee, a small woman with a gigantic voice, has always had trouble finding the appropriate backup band and production style--on Lone Justice's second and final album, E Street Band guitarist Little Steven tries to turn her into the female Bruce Springsteen. He's partially successful: on the opening song, "I Found Love," McKee belts like a countrified Aretha Franklin, and each of her five successive "yeahs" sounds more explosive than the next. But while McKee's voice is timeless, the tinkly keyboards and thudding electronic drums make Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars The gift
Back in the late eighties, early nineties, I was going through a transition in my taste in music. I was discovering new music that my peers in high school would never listen to. It was definitely an alternative to the metal and r&b/hip hop music that they listened to. One of the greatest discoveries was Lone Justice's "Shelter". I bought the cassette version not long after I heard the country-ish title track on a local radio station. What really stood out for me was the keyboards in this particular song. I still love listening to "Shelter" to this very day. I really didn't care for the opening track "I Found Love". It was one of the weaker tracks on the album I thought. It lacked the lush melodies of "Shelter" and "The Gift" (another great song). Maria McKee's vocals are a bit high pitched but compare her to Britney Spears, Maria sounds like Maria Callas. Maria McKee definitely had a distinct voice all her own that you rarely hear nowadays in music. The album itself doesn't really have one particular sound. At times it sounds rather country-ish with a little folk thrown in for good measure, and other times it is more rock. Some of the songs worked for me, and some like "Beacon" and "I Found Love" didn't work for me. Nevertheless, Lone Justice did have a sound of their own.

4-0 out of 5 stars Doesn't sound like the debut because it's a different band,
And that isn't necessarily a bad thing.Someone decided to ditch the original members of Lone Justice after their killer 1985 debut and start all over with Maria McKee alone.Like I said, having Maria around is never a bad thing, but I wonder why they decided to issue this album as Lone Justice?This is really the first Maria McKee solo album and in that vein it's just fine.Gone are the inspired country-punks of 1985, and believe me, they'll be missed, but this album stand up pretty well all on it's own.High points are I Found Love, the title track, Reflected (On My Side), Wheels and Dixie Storms, but there isn't a bad apple in this bunch.

3-0 out of 5 stars A letdown
The first Lone Justice album was a masterpiece. It was consistent and cohesive. But for a few songs, this one is, in contrast, an incoherent letdown. I'll never forget seeing this band perform in person or on SNL during the "Shelter" tour. They were distilled energy, absolutely brilliant, and Maria McKee prowling the stage or bouncing in place was ready to devour the world and the audience."I Found Love", the first track on this CD, was the highlight of their shows. Despite the overproduction here, it remains a great song, and Lone Justice was one of the musical high points of the 80's. Maybe that doesn't say much, but I'd put the early Lone Justice in the same class as the early Pretenders or Pixies, without the commercial success of the former or the fan base of the latter. I thought one reviewer's comparison with Patti Smith's band was apt - Maria McKee shook up rock in the mid-80's for me about as much as Patti Smith did in the mid-70's.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Surely one of their best!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I am a true bodeans fan and I think that this album is perfect!! The only song that's a little weird is "Ultimatly Fine". But the first four or five are killer hits! I stronly reccomend this to anyone out for the Bodeans!!! Guy Hoffman on drums, Kurt Neumann on vocal and electric lead guitar, Sammy Llanas on vocal and guitar, and Bobby Griffin on bass really sound good for just four musicians! Buy it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1-0 out of 5 stars Not Their Best
I will be the dissenting voice amid all the kudos thrown at this album.Make no mistake - I am a BoDeans fan, and I know they can crank out catchy, heartland rock like no one else.5-0 out of 5 stars A Lost Classic
I read Amazon reviews all the time but very rarley put anything to print. However, this album is so amazing that it deserves my valuable time. Someone said the first "side" is as good as anything from the 80's. It's as good a side as anything, anytime and don't forget that beautiful little closing track that is just so perfect. Throughout the album the guitars just bristle with a beautifully fresh sound and the melodies are unforgettable after a few listens.Read more

Editorial Review

Cajun music might not need a tribute--after all, it has held its own andremained popular for a very long time now--but the music on this disc isglittering enough to shine in any company. Ann Savoy (the grande dame of Cajunmusic who assembled this project) andLinda Ronstadt pair upto gorgeous effect on two songs,Richard Thompson offershis own particular edgy style to "Les Flammes d'Enfer,"Nick Lowe soundsconvincingly Arcadian on "Arrette Pas la Musique," andMaria McKee brings atransparent soulfulness to her contributions. Surprisingly, however, no onetackles Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Back Home On Saturday Night
This album is so much like being back on the bayou once again on a Saturday night, dancing on old wooden floors, having a cold drink and playing pool. The songs transform a car or living room into a long lost world of childhood nights when people had not much money, but something to laugh about, and took time to make the most of what they did have. I am definately buying my memories today.

1-0 out of 5 stars Bland Lame Mockery
What should have been done with this project - Ann Savoy where is your common sense(?) - was to have incorporated TRUE Cajun artists' 'tributes' alongside mainstream artists' watered down lame interpretations just, if only, to add a bit of spice, zest and life to these horrendous "filler" tracks. Some of these artists have jumped on the wagon for a last gasp of possible exposure to their sagging careers. I'm very disappointed in Linda Ronstadt - seems all her projects from the past decade beyond her "Feels Like Home" album are mere warmups for indistinct singing which plainly implies she'd be much better off singing somewhere in a choir in anonymous obscurity. Somebody needs to grab Linda and shake her back to her own musical realities - what a shameful waste of her vocal abilities. [Ronstadt is leaving her "tierra" of Tuscon, Arizona in 2005 for a move back to San Francisco after a decade in commercial career doldrums - an obviously planned prestaging for a future "comeback" to her rightful throne as the Queen Of Pop.] If Ann Savoy envisioned massive universal exposure and commercial success for Cajun Music by influencing these 'blasts from their own pasts' to perform this genre of music, she was way off the mark and this entire project misfires. The artists on this tribute may indeed love Cajun, but, their musical visions fall flatly off base too fast. Sure, all music is out there and can be 'covered' by whoever wishes to do so, but, at least create an impressive contribution for the sake of keeping it vibrantly alive. We in Texas recognize and applaud the true Cajun artists[both famous and obscure]who come across the TX-LA border to perform at local & statewide celebrations only to leave audiences mesmerized and blown away long after they've packed up and gone back home to perform elsewhere. If you must have Cajun music in your collection out of a sincere love and appreciation for it, PLEASE look up the genre's rightfully endowed artists and obtain their Cd albums instead - at least give them their due.[You can also listen to Cajun Music saturday mornings for a few hours on Houston's own KPFT 90.1 FM on the internet at www.kpft.org - nothing but the real stuff is played there!]

5-0 out of 5 stars Slight disagreement....
I disagree with the previous review on a few things.First of all, CCR WAS influenced by Swamp Pop, but Swamp Pop is HEAVILY influenced by Cajun music; for those who don't know, it's essentially the music that came out when young Cajuns decided to play rock and roll instead of their own music, and they added Cajun instruments, rhythms and French lyrics to rock and roll, forming a "new" (but actually evolved) style of music.But that's just a technicality.
