Editorial Review

Less a band than the musical equivalent of a Tex-Mex combo platter, the Texas Tornados spotlight the complementary tastes of their four veteran members. This compilation extends from roadhouse rockers by the Sir Douglas Quintet's Doug Sahm ("Who Were You Thinkin' Of," "Adios Mexico") to novelty numbers from his quintet keyboardist Augie Meyers ("Que Paso," "Guacamole") to country and traditional Mexican balladry from Freddy Fender ("Wasted Days and Wasted Nights," "Mentiras"). The accordion virtuosity of Flaco Jimenez adds spice throughout. Since 11 cuts can barely sample the wide range of the group's individual talents, the collection serves as a better introduction than retrospective summation. Read more

Like fun music?Have ecletic tastes?Like to sing along in the car by yourself? Order this baby and enjoy.Different styles amongst the four tornados make this a surprising listen, if not totally cohesive.Who cares!Have "una cerveza", enjoy, and then go buy more of their cd's.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to the band
TEXAS TORNADOS are a TEX-MEX supergroup that I can remember playing in the jukebox when hanging at the local bars back home. Their songs are fun, lively and will get you dancing. GUACAMOLE, HEY BABY QUE PASO, are two songs that when you start listening to the lyrics will just make you bust out laughing and having a good all time. WASTED DAYS AND WASTED NIGHTS is another great song that I really enjoy. This album is just full of great songs from a band that knows how to utilize all of their collective talents and combine them together. So go out get this album and be ready to hear some good music. After this, you will want to hear more of their music and get the rest of their albums.

Editorial Review

Chris Isaak's first album in four years, "San Francisco Days," marks no great departures from his previous three. Recorded once again with his same Silvertone band and producer Erik Jacobsen, this is another Isaak collection of brooding songs about unslaked lust and half-completed break-ups; his restrained but lush voice is still out in front of the heavily echoed popabilly guitars. Nonetheless there are subtle differences in this project that make it more varied, more open, more aggressive and better overall than its predecessors.For example, "Lonely with a Broken Heart" sounds like the ultimate Isaak title, but the song is delivered at a brisk swing tempo, pushed by the soulful B-3 organ of the Robert Cray Band's Jimmy Pugh, and Isaak's carefree vocal makes it clear that the song is meant as a sarcastic taunt to a lover who expects him to come crawling back. A similar twist informs "Except the New Girl," which is lit up by lovely steel guitar lines from Tom Brumley (ex-Buck Owens); Isaak confesses to a woman that "there's never been anyone else...," but then adds the kicker, "except the new girl." "Round & Round" features some dirty guitar and a chugging beat, while the album closes with the best song Neil Diamond ever wrote, "Solitary Man," which sounds more lonely and desperate in this minimalist arrangement than it ever did before.Isaak's trump card, as always, is his singing. Like his heroes Roy Orbison and Don Everly, Isaak sings as if it were always 3 a.m., when every other gambit has failed and there are no options left but complete honesty. He pulls so tightly on the reins to his voice that he usually sings in a husky whisper, which is no less lush for being held back. And when he loosens the reins and allows his handsome tenor to rise in power, as it does on the incandescent falsetto chorus to the first single, "Can't Do a Thing (To Stop Me)," the effect is thrilling.

Chris Isaak. This CD movesyou With a big moooooove. So groovythat it hurts your`e soul. The opening track San Francisco Days, it`s an uptempo smoothsoul rocker, with plenty of passion. The voice of Chris Isaak is like a "cool off" when you feel too much chills and trills in your body. Just pure magic. Track 2 Beautiful Homes, is also an uptempo rock and roller. This is more ordinary in the musical departement, but his voice brings the power to the whole adventure. Track 3 Round "N" Round

3-0 out of 5 stars Wildly uneven but essential all the same
This box set ultimately represents a missed opportunity.It could have and should have been the ultimate collection of Garage-Punk classics and yet so much of it is substandard and unlistenable.Many of the recordings here are little more than copies of more famous bands' works.It has often been said by aficionados of this genre that out of every 100 copy-cat records of the mid-60s that offered little more than pure derivation, there was always one record that was blindingly transcendent.The search is perpetually on to discover that one record.Sadly, this set contains too many of the remaining 99.

Editorial Review

It would be a mistake to claim that Missouri's answer to Neil Young's Crazy Horse has gone soft, but their first release in more than three years shows greater range and reflection than is typical for the rock-solid quartet.The opening "Better than Broken," the brooding "Happy Anniversary," and the acoustic, wistful "Where I Come From" all evoke the aftermath of romantic upheaval (or, in "Suffering Servant," its uncertainty). "Middle Man" could be the band's signature tune, defining a sensibility that is Middle American in more than geography. The sage wisdom of frontman Brian Henneman's "Blind" and the twang of "Feeling Down" show the band's countrier side, while "I Quit" has the groove of retro soul. Yet the guitar finale of the seven-minute, album-closing title song finds the Bottle Rockets as explosive as ever. Read more

The Bottlerockets continue their tradition of solid musicianship combined with lyrics that express a thoughtful, sometimes angry, working class sensibility.

4-0 out of 5 stars Bottle Rockets Return To Form
For starters, this is a much better effort than anything I've heard from the BR since 24 Hours A Day. Recent efforts have had their moments, but Zoysia is a much more consistent and enjoyable effort. Things get off to a great start with Better Than Broken. A somewhat typical BR uptempo rocker executed to perfection. Makes for a great "pick me up" song.
5-0 out of 5 stars Very good CD !
This is the latest CD I have bought, so I am complete again regarding my Bottle Rockets collection. This is a very good CD, really in line with the best CD`s made by this band (24 hours a day, Brooklyn Side, Brand New Year) My favourite songs are "Middle Man" and "Mountain to Climb". Also a good variation regarding, rock, and some more slower pop songs. I really can recommend this CD to everybody who likes traditional American country/rock-music ! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars one of five recordings i would take to a desert isle
The first time i heard los lobos was "will the wolf survive" and i thought it was ok, but later i heard "la pistola y el corazon" and thought, "my damn, that is a fine album!"Los Lobos is the tightest band (like they've been together since birth) i've ever heard and this album exhibits their superb musicianship.There is absolutely no filler on this album, every song is beautiful and complements the other songs very well.It is a wonderful blend of up and slow tempo tunes and, personally, the best comes last.The track "la pistola y el corazon," tugs at my emotions everytime i hear it, and even though i don't have command of spanish, the vocals and instrumentation are so expressive that i can easily feel the despair of the singer.The band also did a great job of getting the listener involved in the music by creating an impromptu party experience in some of the songs like when one of the band members shouts "hoi!" in "el canaler" to keep the pace hot. One of the best albums you will ever hear!

4-0 out of 5 stars Lovely
In all honesty (and with much regret), it seems that traditional Mexican music is dying out--it is with this in mind that I speak on behalf of this wonderful collection of traditional Mexican music.Los Lobos have certainly outdone themselves with La Pistola y El Corazon, which is an excellent introduction to the traditional sounds of Mexico.Quite a variety of styles are represented on this album, such as the lively "son jarocho" as well as the melancholic "huapango" and the beautifully melodic "vals," all of which are native to Mexico.The Spanish guitar seems to be the main instrument present in the majority of the songs, which is a lovely departure from the popular accordion-dominated "nortena" and "ranchera por accordeon" (little more than nortena with a slight folk influence), both of which are strongly associated with Mexico; interestingly enough, these are relatively new additions to the vast variety of music native to Mexico.The band's version of "Si Yo Quisiera" fits this fold quite nicely and will sound very familiar to perhaps the majority of listeners; I, on the other hand, am not a fan of polka, particularly Mexican polka, marking this song as my least favorite.Even then, there is still much beauty to be found on this release, particularly with the huapango "Amarillas," a very haunting number.The lively and joyful-sounding "Guacamaya" makes the perfect intro, as it invites the listener in to a world of beautiful music."(Sonajas) Mananitas Michoacanas" bears a striking resembling to Cajun fiddling, and it is genuinely pleasing to listen to.Other than the songs "Si Yo Quisiera" and "Estoy Sentado Aqui" (not a particularly great track, really), every one of these compositions is a masterpiece.The Spanish-influenced guitar solos are also an asset to the album, proving that the members of Los Lobos are extremely talented musicians.To all who read this: this is true Mexican music.Please add this to your collection; you will not regret it.

Wicked Game is musical "soulfood". Chris Isaak has a voice that send`s ecco from Roy Orbison and other "voice giants" from the classical rock area, from that area when the music had soul and passion. Because when you dig deep enough into this material the music will fill you up and gives you energy. It hit`s the mark early with Track 1 Wicked Game, and the music drives you "crazy " in a good way. There`s a mood of desperate passion when Isaak sings. The sensual coldness in his voice is filled with desperate passion, and you can hear it and feel it very,very, strongly

Their 4th effort does not disappoint. The band continues to mature lyrically while their playing is up to snuff as usual. Guest artists make things more interesting.

4-0 out of 5 stars Too Many Electric Watermelons
The Dickinson Brothers and Chris Chew are definitely masters of both modern and traditional blues, and as North Mississippi AllStars they're in the vanguard for moving the music into the future while remaining firmly rooted in the glories of the past. However, this album brings a somewhat over-ambitious party of guest stars, with a tendency for too many electric watermelons but not enough blues. The songs here with the least extra accompaniment are the strongest of the album, such as no-nonsense blues jams like "Teasin' Brown" and "Mean Ol' Wind Died Down," and especially the frogstompin' cover of Charley Patton's "Mississippi Bollweevil." Some of the guest stars make fine contributions, like Lucinda Williams and the Otha Turner fife and drums troop. But the weaknesses of this album's party approach can be heard plainly in tracks like "Stompin' My Foot," in which a righteous blues-funk jam, assisted by tremendous pedal steel work from Robert Randolph, keeps getting interrupted by the annoyingly unswinging rapper Al Kapone. And while there is still some great blues beneath all of this album's hubbub, the constant parade of special guests and genre experiments tends to swamp the true genius of the three AllStars. Here, too many cooks are overcooking the broth. [~doomsdayer520~] ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Disney a wee bit on acid.
What an eclectic grouping of artists that came together to make this work.The absolute best Disney tribute CD that adults will probably enjoy more than the children.Sinead deliberatly sings an entire song off key until the last note and it's perfect.There are wonderfull songs that you would expect, but with Tom Waits in the mix you must expect some "oddness".Overall a great CD.5 Stars easy.

4-0 out of 5 stars Alternating dark , melancholy and wistful, good but for grown-ups only
I found that listening to this work end to end is going to put you in some peculiar moods. The overall feeling is definitely downbeat, even the up-tempo songs have a decidedly ironic and dark bent. My favorite song in this album has to be the exceptionally soulful rendering of "Baby Mine" by Bonnie Raitt; it turns the sentimental mother-child ballad into something more on the romantic side. I have often slow-danced this one with the wife, and you can really feel a hot intensity under the surface of this number. James Taylor's "Second Star To The Right" is exceptionally wistful in his trademark style. Sun Ra's cover of "Pink Elephants" remains true to the original while retaining the peculiar spacy Sun-Ra vibe. One of the more "accessible" Sun-Ra performances I've ever heard.
5-0 out of 5 stars Really good stuff
I picked this up on CD when it was first released and I was in college, it was always one of my dirty pleasures packed next to harder, grungier, and/or funkier stuff. Well, most of the other stuff has not stood the test of time too well, but Stay Awake still comes out every once in a while. Like the earlier reviewer, I frequently sing my daughters to sleep with Blue Shadows on the Trail ala Syd Straw, and my 2 year old has taken to singing along with me. My one complaint is the medley style of the tracks... some tunes rate an individual track, while other tracks might have three or four tunes faded together. Plenty of different styles on here to satisfy a wide variety of tastes, but it's the purer and more sentimental ones that have always stuck with me. I strongly disagree with the reviewer who thinks Aaron Neville was trying to sex up the Mickey Mouse Club march, I've always felt that his version is laced more with plaintive nostalgia than anything prurient. I've always wished that somebody would put together a Stay Awake 2, but if that means Jessica Simpson gets called in to remake Hakuna Matata, I'll pass. ... Read more

I guess one of the main reasons you're reading the reviews is to try and gauge whether or not to buy the album so I'll try make this as brief as possible. THIS IS ONE OF THE GREATEST ALBUMS EVER MADE. Los Lobos cover many different styles with total excellence. The opener Don't Worry Baby is still probably my favourite Los Lobos track but the rest of the songs are magnificent and brilliantly played. Take the opening to Evangeline and the sax solo on the fantastic I Got Loaded - just great music. Buy this you will never regret it.

5-0 out of 5 stars All Time Classic
I bought this on vinyl in 1985 and it was an instant classic , one of the best albums i'd ever heard.That slab of plastic soon wore out and i've bought it again three times on CD ( friends who loved it got two of them as gifts ).The reason i'm writing this however is to appeal to whoever owns the rights to get this superb album re -released. It's a disgrace that such a brilliant classic has not been Remastered and put out with new sleevenotes , extra tracks etc and given the respect that so many inferior releases by other artists seem to get. Someone sort it out and let this wondrous release have a new lease of life , please !

5-0 out of 5 stars SIMPLY AMAZING!!!
HOW WILL THE WOLF SURIVE? is the full length debut by LOS LOBOS and boy did they hit the mark here. This album has a full range of music which helps to showcase the bands amazing talents. DONT WORRY BABY and I GOT LOADED have that R&B, slightly bluesy sound to them that makes these some rocking songs. CORRIDO #1 and SERENATA NORTENA have that Tex-Mex rhythms to them that help to showcase the bands Mexican roots. I also suggest that you give a listen toA MATTER OF TIME, WILL THE WOLF SURVIE?, OUR LAST NIGHT, and THE BREAKDOWN. I am really hard pressed to find any weak spots on this album.This is a truly amazing debut album for any type of band, and LOS LOBOS has continued to this day to make great music, which might not sound like what is popular at anytime, but it blows everything else out of the water. I highly suggest to any serious music fan to buy this album. I dont think you will be disappointed, I wasnt. I also recommend that you pick up GOOD MORNING AZTLAN, and THIS TIME. PEACE ESE!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars KEEP THIS ONE FOR YOURSELF!
One of Southern Rock's last gritty, greasy great gasps, these guys kicked more hiney than a high school football coach, letting fly with a raunchy, raspy ROCK 'N ROLL attitude flecked with country, blues, and bar band boogie. Helmed by bad boy belter/geetar slinger Dan Baird, the Satellites had it all... brontosaurus chops, snotty swagger, AND a sense of humor (which never hurt NOBODY nohow in the music biz). Monster hit KEEP YOUR HANDS TO YOURSELF sets the piledriver pace for this career roundup appropriately named after one of Chuck Berry's most tread upon pieces (Bob Seger's good, but he ain't THIS good!). Crash 'n burn covers (HIPPY HIPPY SHAKE, originally written and performed by Chan Romero, Caesar's son), Ringo's DON'T PASS ME BY (one of but two Beatles tunes he penned), and a party perfect John Fogerty medley of ALMOST SATURDAY NIGHT/ROCKIN' ALL OVER THE WORLD blend seamlessly with Baird's bare bones double entendre OPEN ALL NIGHT and the bloozey ALL OVER BUT THE CRYIN'. Cranked to an especially high thrash threshold is Terry Anderson's BATTLESHIP CHAINS, not quite three minutes of rock so primitive I'm surprised Fred and Barney didn't write it. Love it loud? Need it nasty? Crave it crazy? Trust me. The Georgia Satellites will put you into orbit! RATING: FIVE BEER BLASTS
5-0 out of 5 stars ****1/2 - superb!
This excellent 20-disc compilation gathers almost all the best from the Georgia Satellites three studio albums. I picked it up some ten or twelve years ago on a whim, knowing little or nothing about the Satallites, but I loved it straight away, and I still take it out and play it from time to time.

5-0 out of 5 stars Two Magnificent and Historically Accurate Song Cycles About the American South
I accidentally ran into the cassette version of "The Story of Jesse James" probably shortly after the cassette was released. My 35 year old daughter remembers well hearing it played over and over again, when she was a child. Naturally, the tape finally wore out and I had no idea where to find another copy. I felt an unbelievable sense of loss because of this for many years, until I recently decided to search "Jesse" on Amazon.com, hoping to find that it had been re-released as a CD.
5-0 out of 5 stars A secret treasure!
I bought "The legend of Jesse James" vinyl LP in 1980 when I was 17 and was immediately struck by the solid writing, emotional narrative and excellent musicianship found on this concept album.I remember "One more shot" got some airplay on country radio stations at the time, but without the rest of the album to provide the appropriate context, the single didn't have much impact.One listen to the entire album, and it's hard not to be impressed by this collection of country/folk/rock jewels.
5-0 out of 5 stars The CD to save if your house was on fire!
White Mansions and especially The Legend of Jesse James gives me chills when I listen to it. I grew up in Clay County,Missouri right up the road from the James Farm. This music is so authentic in the style and the way the voices sound as if they are truly Missouri locals. Anybody who knows the true outlaw story of the James Boys knows this cd is so dead on it will make the hair stand up on the back of your neck. Jesse James is not just a train robber but a true southern farmer turned guerilla who just wanted his money back from the Yankee Feds. This CD has the best I believe of Waylon & Jessi, Johnny Cash and Levon Helm singing in a southern rock style that will have you swilling sweetea out of a mason jar. If you like hog callers and mules, tobacco and whiskey culture and realize the Civil War really started on the southern Frontier in Missouri, buy this you will play it for years!!! ... Read more

Editorial Review

This 1976 effort contains some of Cooder's most compelling work and findshim reexploring some of the fundamental influences on a musician known forremarkable eclecticism.Most notable are "Always Lift Him Up," "Smack Dab in theMiddle," and a beautiful adaptation of "Stand By Me" (which includes Flaco Jimenez onaccordion.) The album opens and closes with covers of Leadbelly, namely "TheBourgeois Blues" and (you guessed it) "Goodnight Irene." Also notable is a fine reworking of the traditional number "I Got Mine."

5-0 out of 5 stars Sometimes I have a great notion to jump into the river and drown.
There are few albums, sigh, all to few, from the mid-seventies that bear repeated listening 30 years later.
5-0 out of 5 stars We means to shoot some craps!
For starters, I don't know how much weight one can put into the opinion of someone who listens to music for the sake of `being hip'. I'm quite sure that Mr. Cooder is more interested in the actual quality of the music - one need look no further than his fall out with the Stones for evidence of this.
5-0 out of 5 stars True roots music; I'd'a never guessed how much I'd feel this.
Man, I'm'a say it again: this is ROOTS music. This is folksy-bluesy-inspirational-Gospelesque music. An' it's still good for drankin' some beers on a warm n' windy Saturday afternoon after puttin' in yet another weeks worth of hard labor. I discovered this by accident, y'all. I accidentally listened to it from front 'ta back an' I accidentally loved it.

3-0 out of 5 stars Not Bad
not bad, but i like his earlier album, "lonelyland" better. most of these songs on this album are a little softer & slower.

5-0 out of 5 stars Bob rules!!!!!!!!!
Listening to Bob's music is amazing; you get different styles and types of music, from funk to mambo to country to rock, all on the same disc from the same artist. Bob is a true musical artist, as is clearly demonstrated from his albums.I saw them play live in Hollywood, and the live show was even better than his albums.I've seen lots of bands that only play, bring "tortured" by their music, or ones that just talk about their message or political cause or whatever, but Bob and his band were just there to rock the house and have a great time. Definitely see them live, it's easily one of the best shows I've ever seen, and cost $25.

4-0 out of 5 stars An Cohesive Collection of Eclectic Styles
It is, based on this record, a very difficult task to nail down a list of musical influences present in Bob Schneider's music. You can hear a touch of Pete Yorn in the lovelorn lyrics, a bit of Wilco in the production, a touch of Texas Country in the melody, and it's hard to skip the similarity of the vocal presentation between Bob and Conner Oberst in some of Bright Eyes' more produced recordings. Moreover, you can hear some reggae and blues grafted in to situations where they are wholly unexpected.

3-0 out of 5 stars witty, bluesy, country music on wry
Todd's a find all right. He's got some Loudon Wainwright III in him when I think he'd prefer to be more like Robert Earl Keen. LWIII tries so hard to be witty that his wonderful more serious songs get shrugged off. REK manages to have both embraced. Listen to this early effort along side East Nashville Skykline and you'll hear tremendous growth but still with a bit of that LWIII desperation to be taken seriously.

3-0 out of 5 stars A good debut, but not the best introduction anymore to TS
I bought this album first when I was inclined to finally get better acquainted with Todd's music after having seen him open for others such as Suzanne Vega or John Prine as a solo performer.

4-0 out of 5 stars A CD with a Message
I bought this CD after hearing an interview on XM Radio (The Loft) and hearing the song Jerusalem a few times on the same station after the interview.The whole album is very listenable but my favorate song is definitely Jerusalem.I like artists who are willing to speak out on political issues such as Jackson Browne while still being able to create great music.Steve Earle is definitely worth listening to.

5-0 out of 5 stars My Least Favorite is still pretty good.
There are some songs on this one that didn't do it for me. But it is still a very good record. The worst song is the first song. But once you get through that this album does get enjoyable. It really grew on me. My favorite song is John Walker's Blues which tells the story of the soldier who converted while in Iraq. It uses pretty cool mid-eastern themes at the end. Also the titled track is beautifully written. Favorites include Amerika v. 6.0 (The Best We Can Do), Conspiracy Theory, John Walker's Blues, The Kind, What's A Simple Man To Do?, Go Amanda, I Remember You with Emmylou Harris, and Jerusalem. Recommended, but get the others first.

5-0 out of 5 stars Masterpiece
I think this is a rock'n'roll masterpiece.I am listening to a borrowed copy right now, which I couldn't help playing all the way through 3 times in the first 2 days, and I was also compelled to make a road tape for the car.I'm saving up to make it the next CD I buy.

His best since El Corazon and one of this decades best. You can't go wrong with this one if you are already a Steve Earle fan.

4-0 out of 5 stars For the Fences
I love performers who follow their own path no matter what. Lucinda Williams,Lyle Lovett and Steve Earle are the best current examples of this admirable quality.
4-0 out of 5 stars Last of the best
This is the last Steve Earle album from what was his prime, spanning from Train a Comin to this release. People will disagree, but after this one the politics started to fight the music for attention. This is an all around good album; very representative of his work post-rehab and pre-protest singer. ... Read more

I enjoy all the cuts on this compilation. It is fun to hear the variety of artists perform their works. A rockin' version of Rock Island line from Little Richard that is worth the whole album. Funny how the Bourgeois Blues still seems relevant.........

5-0 out of 5 stars LITTLE RICHARD WITH FISHBONE STANDS OUT
IF YOU LIKE PURE, OLD SCHOOL ROCK 'N' ROLL, PICK UP THIS ALBUM FOR LITTLE RICHARD'S AWESOME RECORDING OF 'ROCK ISLAND LINE'.IN MY OPINION, IT IS THE TRACK THAT STANDS OUT MORE THAN ANY OTHERS.IF YOU DON'T APPRECIATE THAT GENRE, YOU MAY NOT APPRECIATE THAT TRACK AS MUCH.I ZEROED IN ON THE ALBUM MAINLY FOR LITTLE RICHARD'S TRACK, ALTHOUGH THE REST ARE FINE. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars The beginning of a great career
Chris Whitley released his debut album, Living With the Law, in 1991. Released at a time when the music scene was about to be dominated by hip/hop and grunge, Living With the Law was steeped in electric blues complemented by Whitley's impressive guitar work and very distinctive singing voice. With a dense production by Daniel Lanois, it would also prove to be his most radio friendly release. However, despite it having several tracks that would have been AOR hits if given the chance as well as much critical acclaim, Living With the Law didn't earn Chris Whitley the recognition he deserved. However, to a small but dedicated fan base, it would provide the blueprint for an impressive catalog of music.
5-0 out of 5 stars Can't Add Any More
I really can't add anything else to the praise that's already been heaped on this fine album and Chris Whitley as an artist. Something about him is very American, original, and timeless. I was fortunate enough to see him perform twice in Philly during these early years and I can say the standing-room-only audience was blown away by this thin, humble man with the haunting voice and shining national steel guitar. Even though he's not here any more you can imagine him walking those lost highways with his guitar and a new set of lyrics taking shape.

5-0 out of 5 stars LIVING WITH THE LAW
I was shocked to see that Chris Whitley had passed away last week from a bout with lung cancer.Whitley's career had long been an interesting journey that produced a wide range of rivetting music.LIVING WITH THE LAW was the stellar start to that journey.
