5-0 out of 5 stars LIKE FINE WINE....
Man, I'm floored by the poor reviews of this disc.Listen, his mid-career stuff i.e. "Bring the Family", "Stolen Moments" etc. is phenomenal; but he has not lost one bit of touch or creativity with his last couple discs.While "Beneath This Gruff Exterior" was a top shelf punch in the chops from John, "Master" is a laid back and beautifully written piece of work.I'm a HUGE Hiatt fan, and arguabally each of his discs have one or two clunkers- this disc is no exception to that rule.But you also have a few could-be classics-The title track, "Howlin' down the Cumberland", "Find you at Last"....and a couple that are just hysterical-"Wintertime Blues" and "Back on the corner".LOVED IT.

Editorial Review

Like a rootsier Jimmy Buffett, Delbert McClinton is an established, hard-touring veteran whose audience doesn't expect from him too much out of the norm. Regardless, the Texan's quintessential mix of country, R&B, Tex-Mex, blues, honky-tonk, New Orleans bump, lounge jazz, and good-time rock and roll is durable enough to sustain a career, especially since nobody does it nearly as well as he does. In the spirit of "don't fix what isn't broken," this album of 13 McClinton originals preserves the established formula. But to his credit, the leathery-voiced singer, now in his mid-60s, never seems to be going through the motions. He delivers this good-natured Americana with gutsy enthusiasm and enough raw energy to power the ocean liner on one of his famous blues cruises. Just as comfortable tearing into the Stonesy rock of "Dead Wrong" as the soft, Spanish guitar-driven folk of "Down into Mexico"--a tale of a robbery/relationship gone bad that flawlessly mixes his tender and tough sides--McClinton revels in his element. Fiddles, sax, and pedal steel augment the arrangements, highlighting the country and blues at the heart of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars His best album in years
I've been a Delbert fan for more than 20 years, and this is his best release in a long time. There is no voice like Delbert's; man, can he sing. From the raucous "Hammerhead Stew" to some welcome country songs like "Midnight Communion" and "Two Step Too" this CD rocks. As for those reviewers who dislike the country element here, they aren't true Delbert fans, since real aficiandos know that some of Delbert's early works were
5-0 out of 5 stars cost of living
I can find nothing bad about this cd. It's like Springsteen lyrics, guitar strains of Marty Robbins and maybe a little touch of John Fogerty. I can recall sitting in a bar thirty years ago with some of my military buds and listening to this kind of music, wishing we were someplace else. What memories this cd evolked! All in all I can say that Delbert McClinton is becoming part of my blues collection and will continue to add more.

5-0 out of 5 stars lone star star
Texas music is more than music from Texas. It's an alchemy of apparently disparate essences - blues, soul, rock'n'roll - and Delbert McClinton is a master chemist. Like his fellow Lone Star Staters Clarence "Gatemouth" Brown and Doug Sahm, McClinton's defiance of definition may have denied him a wider audience, but those who know him can consider themselves, to quote one of his songs, "one of the fortunate few". McClinton wrote most of the 13 songs here and anything he doesn't write he makes his own (I'll Change My Style, associated with Jimmy Reed, becomes wonderfully greasy swamp R&B). For tragic, noirish adventure with a femme fatale, try Down into Mexico ("Sherrie was a dancer / she was a schemer / we came up with a foolproof plan"). Those who have lost love will share the ache of Kiss Her Once For Me ("and there's a part of her life I won't be there to see / when you're holding her tonight, kiss her once for me"). McClinton just turned 65 and shows no sign of decline. Start here and work back to such gems as Genuine Cowhide (1976) and The Jealous Kind (1980).(This review appeared in The Age newspaper in Melbourne, Australia.) ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Too great for words...
Tell me how in the hell a band like Green Day with their simple guitar and drum rythyms get to be so big and an alternative meets punk band like SD doesnt get near the props they should?Its all marketing strategy in my opinion.SD blows the lid off with this album.Johnny Cash's remake, Ring of Fire totally rocks along with the jazzy lyrics of story of my life and sick boy make you think about the "good times" that everyday people can relate to...a perfect five stars for me.This is easy listening that anyone can enjoy.

5-0 out of 5 stars Favorite "New" Band since College
Every song is superb.Driving, running, daydreaming, this Social D classic makes me feel young and glad my hearing is still good."She's a Knockout" is as good as any song I've heard since college."Ring of Fire" is the only cover and it's worthy of the original."Story of My Life" is the best song and its lyrics are as good as the incredible music.Buy this CD and then "Somewhere Between Heaven and Hell" and you won't regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars SD rocks 15+ years later
Wow, this is such a great album throughout.One bonus is that it's relatively short and there are no wasted, throwaway tracks.

Dan Zanes is great! My husband and I both enjoy listening to this as well as our 20 month old. Most of the other music CD's that we have for our son I find a little irritating after a bit of listening. Rocket Ship Beach is fun, family music! I highly recommend this to all ages!

Editorial Review

Most artists who appeal to adult listeners tend to settle into a comfortable niche, but Lucinda Williams refuses to play it safe. Instead, her music stings like an open wound, as she continues to strip away the protective layers from her art's emotional core. Though Williams has long been prized for the naked honesty of her music, this collection is even rawer than its predecessors. From the down-and-dirty bar-band blues of "Atonement" to the Rolling Stones-style swagger of "Bleeding Fingers" to the tricky balance of debasement and transcendence in "Ventura," Williams leaves the nerve endings of her music exposed. With the band opting for first-take immediacy rather than polish, some of the most powerful material is also the neediest, as the singer addresses lovers who have disrespected her ("Righteously") or abandoned her ("Those Three Days," "Minneapolis"). Though her attempts at rap on "Sweet Side" and "American Dream" might cause diehard fans to wince, her willingness to take creative chances reaffirms her position at the vanguard of a rootsy progressivism that transcends musical category. Simply put, there's more Patti Smith in her than there is Patsy Cline. Read more

3-0 out of 5 stars For me, the Rhythym Wasn't There
This is my least favorite of Lucinda Williams' albums. "Essence" and "Car Wheels on a Gravel Road" and even her latest release (not even sure if it's been released, but I have heard some tracks - she's in love during this record, gossip news has it) share a common thread of story-telling, sexiness and evocation not found in World Without Tears, which is hard, rockin' and disjointed.
5-0 out of 5 stars Lucinda's best yet
Lucinda just keeps getting more raw and better. She definitely is breaking new ground here, and I think it's her best work to date.

5-0 out of 5 stars My vote for Album of the Century!
Just finished my third listening of this album, and it is fantastic. Lucinda's lyrics are more powerful and emotional than ever. Musically, she continues her push into new realms, and some songs can initially be uncomfortable - but really start to rock with additional listenings. For those looking for a rerun of Car Wheels or Essence - you won't find it here. But then Lucinda Williams fans aren't looking for comfortable, are they? "Those Three Days" and "Ventura" are absolute classics! ... Read more

Editorial Review

By the time Columbia released NRBQ's self-titled debut in 1970, the band was already having fractious dealings with their label (a pattern that would become all too familiar over the course of their nearly 40-year career). This live date at Cincinnati's Ludlow Garage has circulated clandestinely among fans for some time, and is finally being released in stunning clarity. The 18 songs are a veritable tour through the vast musical landscape that captured the band's imagination. Besides originals, there are covers of songs by Sun Ra, Little Richard, Carla Bley, Wilson Pickett, and Rahsaan Roland Kirk, among others. NRBQ's sense of both tradition and invention is remarkable for musicians who were in their early 20s at the time. They were accidental iconoclasts, refusing to adhere to any of the expectations of the day, honoring their musical inclinations at every turn. It's also amazing to hear the sound of the audience slowly gather momentum as they're transformed from baffled newcomers to fans. Read more

How can a collection featuring Yma Sumac, Townes Van Zandt, Nina Simone and Moondog get only 2 stars, because of Kenny Rogers & the 1st Edition. This version of the song sucks, and the scene in the movie sucked. Edit this self indulgant dreck out of both and they rate higher.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent solo acoustic versions of Classic Steve Earle
This reminds me of the show I saw in Newport Folk Fest in 2004 or was it 2003? Anyway, I was blown away by the Newport show and to see Steve unplugged. Only thing better than this would be to have the DVD of he and Lucinda Williams at the Folk Fest that year. This one is essential for Steve Earle fans. If you are new to Steve Earle there is a great double CD of his greatest hits out already. Otherwise pick through his many studio releases before buying this one. ... Read more

this is easily one of the best albums produced in the 20th century.who puts almanac in the title of a record?this really changed my life and taste in music- if it were possible to wear out a CD, then that's what woulda happened the winter I got this back in 97 or 98.problem is, now I just can't listen to it in warm weather, it's incongruous with the attitude the album has to me.

The soaring steel guitar figure which opens "Excuse Me If I Break My Own Heart Tonight" is THE definitive alt.country riff of all time--for me, anyway.It doesn't get any better than this song.Desperation, awe, anguish, love, and a resolve to communicate to the other person that what they're doing is a tremendous mistake--all delivered in the form of a song that, musically, sweeps you up, propells you along, and makes you catch your breath.A fully realized vision.The rest of the album's pretty great, too. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Soundtracks don't get any better than this.
Desperado...the best action movie I've seen in my life. It had it all. Great characters, intense action scenes, a simple but rewarding plot, and of course, a flawless soundtrack. Most of the time when someone buys a soundtrack, they go on about how great it is...for a few weeks. And almost never listen to it again. That's not the case here. Sometimes, I'd watch the movie just to hear the music used in it. It's that good. Heck, even when it's shown on tv, I'll watch it for a quick fix for the music. Even if it's just the opening credits bit. Simply put, Robert Rodriguez out did himself with the movie, and the music. There's not a bad track on here. But there is one minor gripe- not all of the tracks from the movie are on the album. And one of them is a slower version of what's shown in the movie.

to help us see just how good these guys are. Makes the miles fly away. What better recommendation can there be?

5-0 out of 5 stars In the movie "Eating Raoul"....
a Los Lobos song is heard on the soundtrack as Paul Bartel is chasing Robert Beltran in his old beat-up car. It is a great Mexican version of "Devil With A Blue Dress On". I wish that was on here as a bonus track. Still, this is a pretty good "best of" album because the first 75% of it is from their early period. There are only one or two tracks from the horrendous "Kiko", "Neighborhood", and "This Time" albums, but they are the better tracks. My copy of the cd has a bonus unreleased track from the "Neighborhood" sessions called "Border Girl". Yeah, I know you Los Lobos freaks will say that "Kiko" is their best album, but you have no idea what you are talking about. 99% of the world is blinkered and stupid and you twirps are right in there with the rest of the rabble.
4-0 out of 5 stars Can't argue with the song selection....
... but, essentially this is the third retread of the same canon - Live at The Fillmore, Acoustic en vivos, and now this. It's a slightly better compilation than the other two, but, the wolves have a bit of Costello-itis: retread the same stuff ad nauseum. It doesn't sound particularly remastered.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Unique Sound, Great Guitar Work And A Singer With A Social Conscience!
This album shows just what a unique talent John Fogerty trulyis. He goes from the Country "chicken pickin' guitar workon Big Train( From Memphis) all the way to the hard rocking Mr. Greed in which he lashes out at the way he was treated by certain record executives. I am also happy to say that his Anti War stance is alive and well as can be heard on the song "I Saw It On TV" where a Fathergrieves the loss of his son in a futile and unnecessary war whichonly boosted Corporate Profits.This album should be compulsory listening for any teenage aspiring guitarists and songwriters.Mr. Fogerty may have grown up in California but his heart is still in the Louisianna Bayous. Naturally 5 stars for this album and I would give it 10 if I could.

overall, a really nice over view. I do take some issue with the re-record/re-mix issue (...re the liner notes:what pisses him off so much about "Proof Through The Night"?)
5-0 out of 5 stars Let the bon temps rouler
This is a great intro into the musical past of T Bone Burnett as a recording artist. A more eclectic and interesting array of songs would be hard to find on one "retrospective". There's a couple of new songs too and for me the crowning moment is the wonderful closing track, the creole styled "Bon Temps Rouler". A neat lead in to the new him and, the "True False Identity". It's hard to take all of this in as there are a generous 40 tracks in all. I can't think of too many artists that could hold your interest for that many songs. I could listen to the whole lot in a sitting if I had the time - there is just so much to hold my interest. This, along with "True False Identity" was a belated birthday present and thoroughly appreciated it has been too!

3-0 out of 5 stars T Bone's vision isn't 20/20 but he's not blind either
For those few people familiar with T Bone's complete body of work, this will be a disappointment.His first four albums (actually three albums and one EP) are represented quite well.But he has remixed or "reproduced" several tracks, mostly from his 1983 LP Proof Through The Night to ill effect."The Murder Weapon" has been stripped of its drums, and that's not a good thing."Hula Hoop" sounds like it has a ball and chain attached to it.On the bright side, at least the right tracks were culled for this project."The Sixties," one of his most pretentious and dated tracks is thankfully absent here.

Our 22 mo. old loves this music much more than the kiddy tunes that mom and dad can hardly bear to listen to.

5-0 out of 5 stars Dan ZanesNightime is "Happy Music"
I was introduced to the Dan Zanes Nightime CD while I was visiting my 3 1/2 year old grandson.He listens to it everynight before going to sleep with "Pay Me You Owe Me" being his single favorite song.I fell in love with the CD because each time I play it I can vividly recall the pleasure it gave us both. The choice of songs on the CD gives all ages something to remember and before you know it you will be singing and dancing along with the music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't hesitate - buy now !!
After seeing Dan Zanes on Noggin, I was hooked.This is a great CD that I keep in the car.I find myself listening to it without my three year old in the car!It's great for singing along to - and even if it's titled "Night Time" it isn't lullabye music, it's perfect music for my toddler and preschooler and even me, an ageing generation X-er!Since this purchase, I bought Dan Zanes most recent DVD and absolutely LOVE it.I almost qualify as a groupie.Buy this CD and you won't regret it! ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Backup Stars save the Songs
The Indian Roots are always mentioned but never Robertson's Jewish roots from his father's side and his real name was not Roberson that was his step father's name. I now everyone wants to Indian because it is popular but so is being related to King David of the Bible. The songs were saved by people like U2 and Rick Danko not Robbie who just can not sing well. Maybee Robbie should go to Israel and do an album of Israelly songs with Babs singing the lead vocals I bet they sound excellent.

5-0 out of 5 stars A GreatRock and Roll Album
Robbie Robertson is a great artist. I like how he wrote the songs for The Band and he has written many great songs in the years since 1987. This album is a masterpiece in many areas, and especially when he and U2 united on two songs, which are the amazing Sweet Fire of Love and the Rocking and Brass backed Testimony. Being of a Mohawk mother, he is very proud of his First Nations origins, with him putting a lot of Native American influences in his music. SOme may like this album and others may not, but it is a work of art and that is what art is, as something that is to be critisized or not.

4-0 out of 5 stars Gives credibility to the rumor that Robertson wasn't everything in The Band...
There's been quite a bit of controversy to Robbie Robertson's role in The Band. He wrote almost all of the material (at least officially), and he and Levon Helm have had words over the years about songwriting credits and arrangment ideas. This situation is similar to that of Pink Floyd, in that if you listen to Roger Waters's solo work, it doesn't have that Floyd sheen to it. In other words, David Gilmour had quite a lot more to do with the Floyd sound than Waters would probably like to admit to. And the same here for Robertson. This album sounds nothing like The Band. The songs are very good, the production is superb. Robertson, however, doesn't sing very well (to his credit, he rarely sang lead while in The Band), and the whole thing sounds so far removed from The Band you wouldn't have guessed that Robertson was in The Band. When you listen to Robertson-less Band albums like Jublilation, you realise that the others in the Band had a lot to do with the sound of their music. Jubilation sounds very Bandish, and is a wonderful album. So, in conclusion, this is a good album. But it is not The Band. Some will say "Robertson moved on". Others will say "he wasn't the whole Band". I agree with the later. Daniel Lanois, the album's producer, sounds like he had quite a bit of input here, similar to what The Band did in their heyday. It sounds like other Lanois produced material, like U2 and Bob Dylan (Oh Mercy and Time Out of Mind). So I would conclude that Robertson had a lot of help with arrangements, and maybe, possibly, took a few too many writing credits.

Editorial Review

While some artists feel the need to reinvent themselves on a regular basis or to throw together records chockfull of guest stars in order to revive flagging careers, J.J. Cale remains content to continue his reign as king of the laid-back guitar groove. Anyone who thinks it is easy to continually wring new permutations out of the back-porch choogle--Cale's calling card for near three decades--should try it some time. A little violin ("My Gal"), a stab of horns ("Chains of Love"), or some vibraphone tones ("New Lover") is all he needs to freshen the mix. While artists like Eric Clapton and Lynyrd Skynyrd have scored by adding testosterone to Cale's tunes, they would be the first to admit that his music is no less potent for being more relaxed. In fact, it's the off-hand manner in which he presents his political tunes--"Stone River" (ecology), "The Problem" (the President), and "Homeless"--that gives them their poetry and power. Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars True Chill Out Music
Great music for a relaxing sunny day at the beach.Despite some serious themes in the lyrics, you can put a smile on your face, have your favorite beverage or whatever, and kick back for the sunset.Having owned Clapton's 461 Ocean Blvd. album for 20 years, I see why people compare Cale to Clapton, though it should be the other way around.Great album from start to finish.

5-0 out of 5 stars 6+ stars
I sometimes wonder what makes the difference between an artist and a shooting star ? I'm listening to Cale's music for almost thirty years. Actually I grew with it. From one album to another he never ceases to surprise me. Probably the difference that I'm talking about lies in some magic blend of musical wisdom, imagination, loose attitude and passion for creation. Cale has them all. This album makes no exception. It has everything from each one of his previous approaches: the misty mood of "Naturally", the punchy sound of "Troubadour", the stompy rhythms of "Shades"... For any Cale passionate this is a must. And the sound of the CD is wonderful. Just listen to "The Problem" and "Fancy Dancer" and you know what I'm about.

Ms Tedeschi's rendition of "Angel From Montgomery" is worth the price of this CD.WONDERFUL!!!As great as Bonie Raitt does with the old John Prine tune, Tedeschi does better.Soulful and full of emotion.You feel the emptiness and the desire for that reprive. Just great!

5-0 out of 5 stars Like a live best of
With material from all her earlier CDs and a Sly and Family Stone cover not previously available, this serves as a live greatest hits or best of. I've seen her a few times live and this is very represenataive of her concert work also. The guitar work is fine but you can see the later material is emphasizing her vocals more than her playing.

5-0 out of 5 stars The Best Album Ever
Now that I have your attention, I would just like to say read David Bell's review herein and you will have a good idea how I feel about this album. Only I cherish it more. I have a cabin in the woods where I go to contemplate the world, and this CD is in the creaky old CD changer I keep down there. I play it over and over. I play it when I have the tribe over for a special dinner. I play on a sun dappled afternoon when I just want to drift away to a kinder time. I play it when I want to share something special with old friends. Ry Cooder seems like one of the kindest people on the planet, and his musicianship is only barely this side of heaven. I like, sort of, his new much acclaimed Buena Vista Social Club work, but I wish he would make another album/CD like this one for his long suffering long appreciative fans. "Into the Purple Valley" is almost as good, and some folks would say better. Anyway, I have never written a review, but this musical jewel deserves all the veneration we can muster.

5-0 out of 5 stars Ry at His Musical Best
Don't know how many people would agree that this is still the finest album Cooder has ever done but so be it. Every song is good. My only complaint is that the album isn't longer. Rys' slide playing is excellent here as is his acoustic fingerstyle and his warm, someone sarcastic voice is the perfect fit for the lyrics to these tunes, such as Fool For a Cigarette/Feelin' Good, the Salvation Army-esque Jesus On the Mainline and even Blind Blakes' Diddy Wah Diddy. You also get The Tattler, a song that Linda Rondstat had a hit with but this one's better ... Read more
