4-0 out of 5 stars Who says it won't burn
An awesome Cd.The disc opens with the Al Green influenced memphis soul number Alone, whichalone is worth the price of the disc.Followed by the late Paul Pena's Gonna Move featuring some tasty slide by husband Derek Trucks.(Must be nice to call on the best slide player in the world for your CD) Other highlights include a wicked version of Don't Think Twice It's All Right and a blistering I Fell In Love.Also included are a tip of the hat to Atlanta music legend Bruce Hampton and a smoky Blues on a Holiday.

Editorial Review

On Paul Burch’s five preceding records he has showcased his strapping Nashville backing band, The WPA Ballclub, to complement his own ambidexterity on guitar, Wurlitzer, pedal steel and vibes. The trend continues here, though the ante has been upped by the likes of multi-instrumentalist Tim O’Brien, guitarist Mark Knopfler and voice-out-of-heaven Ralph Stanley. Burch’s fondness for classic country shines in honky-tonkers like "When I’m In Love" and "I’m Taking It Home," but his true songwriting genius is best exposed on tracks that straddle the boundaries of folk ("Last Dream of Will Keene), pop ("December Sparklers") and blues ("I Will Wait For You"). Both "Daddy Rhythm Guitar" and "John Peel" use the purest forms of instrumentation, the latter featuring Burch’s primitive bass-slapping, and "Little Glass of Wine," which includes the immortal Stanley on high-harmony co-lead vocals, smells of sweet Kentucky bluegrass. By the time he croons "Montreal," using the French Canadian city as a love-affair metaphor, you’re left to wonder why Paul Burch is still tucked so deeply into Nashville’s underground. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars And fate stepped in. Thank God for that.
As I hear it told, Paul was going through a tough time, and he wasn't sure if he wanted to continue making music. It seems some chance meetings, & phone calls from some legendary musicians (Ralph Stanley, Mark Knopfler among others) who informed him they've been long-time fans, & advise to keep plugging away gave him the desire to go on. Man, are we lucky for that! This guy's one of the best kept secrets out there today. You want a true throwback to the days of Hillbilly country? This is your man. He also does rockabilly, and some vintage style rock & roll that you'd swear came right out of the fifties. He blends a variety of subtle styles in his approach, but he's so damn talented that it flows effortlessly. This is music that is timeless, traditional, yet it's fresh.I don't know if this is his best (all of his releases are great), but it's already a staple in my collection, and like every other of his discs, it always will be. ...

I saw Jackie open for Susan Tedeschi a week ago and for the first two songs I was impressed by how talented this guy is.He can play everything and he can play everything very well.He has a great voice with great control, but he's got no soul.The music is very cheesy and predictable.After a few songs, which all start sounding the same, I was so bored that I was regretting buying the tickets to see Susan.I acutally felt sorry for the musicians that he hires because there's no way anyone that I know would want to play this without getting some $$.
5-0 out of 5 stars Jackie Greene continues to evolve... and impress
Jackie's country, gospel and blues influenced folk music continues to evolve here on "Sweet Somewhere Bound", and he produces his best album in his first attempt under his new label, Verve. Jackie's previous album, "Gone Wanderin'", showed promise and had good individual songs, but meshed together badly as an album and suffered from repetition in places.

Editorial Review

A Canadian who grew up gazing south across the border,guitarist, songwriter and singer Robbie Robertson has built much of his best music around Americanculture, as witnessed by his work with the Band, built around narratives steeped in evocative American blues,folk, and R&B accents. His self-titled 1987 solo debut veered toward a more ambitious, impressionistic stylethat somewhat submerged his earlier sense of musical geography, but this 1991 successor findsRobertson once more rooting his songs in the Deep South, taking its title from New Orleans's fabled red-lightdistrict--the symbolic birthplace for of jazz. These songs evoke the Crescent City in the recurrent second-linerhythms, warm horn choruses, and choral call-and-response of the arrangements, while Robertson'sunvarnished but indelible baritone and yearning falsetto testifies on the preachers, con men, drifters, and star- crossed lovers of his well-crafted songs.Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Moody ! Oh soooo mooody.
Robbie Robertson with hissometimesharseness wispering singin is a gem to listen to it. This Cd has much of this moody magic. Track 1 The Night Parade has a certain touch of "woodoo" musical magic, that hit`s your soul like a curse, and never let it go before it`s finish. Magical.
5-0 out of 5 stars J Robbie Robertson at his best!
What a great album. I am a huge fan of 'The Band' and I have to disagree with the other reviewers who said that this should have been a 'Band' album. Robbie's songs here are more mature and sung with just as much heartfelt emotion as Rick, Levon or Richard could muster up in the sixties and seventies with 'The Band'. There are band fans out there who, perhaps due to the rift between Robbie and Levon, dismiss Robertson's post 'Band' work as substandard. Well this simply isn't true. This is a truly great album with only one or two tracks that may not be to everyone's liking. Check out his first solo effort aswell which is self titled.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my top five of all time
When the art of songwriting and musical performance reach this level there are no words to describe the result.With a collection in excess of 4,000 CDs, I am hard pressed to find one with more soul or that has such an emotional punch.If you love music that moves you and you search for an artist that is outside the commercial norm, this is a recording for you. ...

Editorial Review

The BoDeans may have to play second-fiddles to guitar great Les Paul as Waukesha, Wisconsin's favorite musical sons, but their rootsy, unpretentious rock & roll carved them a comfortable niche and loyal following from the late 1980s on. This 17-track anthology spans a decade of the band's history, eschewing strict historical chronology for a running order that's both more artistically interesting and listener friendly. Indeed, fully a third of the tracks issue from the band's 1995 live album Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Could be better
It was OK, but it's missing some songs. I was shocked when I didn't see "Good Work" and "Dreams". Also, there are too many live tracks. I do like, however, how they have some rare photos and a bio, but the track listing is dissapointing. If you're new to the Bodeans, I'd buy Thick as Theives.

3-0 out of 5 stars Find a copy of 'Thick as Thieves' if you can !It's a much better anthology...
While I probably would never give ANY BoDeans release less than three stars, I would have to agree that this contains WAY too many tracks from 'Joe Dirt Car' (which, in my opinion, was one of the most overrated live albums ever - the latest 'Homebrewed: Live from the Pabst is a MUCH better representation of what the guys sound like live).If you can, find a copy of the Australian import 'Thick as Thieves: The Best of the BoDeans' - it has 20 tracks as compared to 17, no tracks from 'Joe Dirt Car', and takes you right up to 1996's superb 'Blend'.Skip this disappointment of an anthology -- it's certainly not awful, but it could have been compiled WAY, WAY better.

2-0 out of 5 stars Slash & Burn
I was a Bodeans fan from the first record, and I have to say that even I wouldn't buy this one. The stuff they did on their first three albums is vastly superior to the Joe Dirt offerings.

2-0 out of 5 stars The Real Epitaph
It somehow just makes sense that thirty years later you'd see a cd version of the same type of lame "new wave" cash-in albums that cropped up like mushrooms in '77-'78.The predictable and the loss leaders are all here, in a way that really makes me oddly nostalgic

3-0 out of 5 stars Never Mind the Bollocks, Here's the Boxset
Everyone can gripe about what they left out but I am more concerned about what was included. You get the obvious (Blitzkrieg Bop, Search and Destroy, White Riot, Blank Generation), a few real gems (Patti Smith's deconstruction of Hey Joe)and some real duds (The Strangler's "Peaches", Ian Dury "Sex and Drugs and Rock and Roll") to stuff that isn't even punk (Joe Jackson, Elvis Costello). Though its cool not to always pick obvious songs by an artist it seems that perhaps some of the choices were because they couldn't get the rights to better known songs. I mean whoever heard of The Soft Boys "I Want to Be an Anglepoise Lamp". I would have picked "I Want to Destroy You".Or Ultravox "Saturday Night in the City of the Dead". It was from the first album before they even developed their sound. So yes this is a history of punk but with pub rock and deservedly lesser known pop punk bands. Whoever thought that punk would some day be watered down into parent-friendly pop punk/emo that would crowd out the bands with real talent. So if you know about punk then the boxset may not really give you any more ideas but if you can't wait to catch the Warped Tour every year then "No Thanks" might save you from a life of desperation.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nearly perfect, I love it
It could have had some more artists on it. Many of the ones that are already there have 2-3 songs. But that's hardly anything to complain about, this is a great set! The book it comes with is also very informative, and has great photos of just about every band here. It even gives a brief explanation of why the Pistols aren't here, but you'd probably be better off just purchasing "Never Mind the Bollocks" if you care that much. Personally, I don't care that they're not included.

On her second solo album, Amy Ray pulls no punches. As she sings in "Rural Faggot," "I know you want to know the truth, and I'm the dyke who will give it to you." It's an anthem worthy of Bruce Springsteen (one of the many here) within a song cycle that revisits high school rites of passage in the South while coming to terms with sexual confusion, desire, and identity.

5-0 out of 5 stars one excellent cd
I love this cd so much! The lyrics hit right in the gut and the songs are set to beats that really reel you in. Put it out for good, cover for me and let it ring are my favorites but there's not a weak song on this album period. I love the stripped down sound, the high school choruses, everything. Amy, you're great!

5-0 out of 5 stars LOVED IT!!!
amy ray is such a talented artist and i love all her music.i litsen to this cd all the time it never gets old to me...thats how great it is.i loved all her work with the indigo girls but shes good as a solo artist as well.all the songs are great from start to finish.so if you want to support some real music...then pick this cd.you wont be disappointed trust me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Don't miss this one, it rocks
Game on, this is good stuff!To be honest, I wanted to like Ray's first solo Stag a lot more than I did, which is why I walked, not ran to Prom, But then that was before I caught the Indigo Girls last summer, where Ray and her mandolin wowed the crowd with the anthem Let It Ring.It was the first time I'd heard it and it made the hair on the back of my neck stand up.

5-0 out of 5 stars Al's still got it
Classic Al Kooper.Somewhat overproduced but show me an Al Kooper album that isn't.
5-0 out of 5 stars This Black Coffee will wake you up and not let you down
He has never been the best vocalist, keyboard player, guitarist or writer, but Al Kooper is a tasty musician and an excellent producer with an uncanny ability to make great music. One needs only to listen to the classic organ riffs of "Like a Rolling Stone" done by the then non-keyboard playing Al or the groundbreaking "Child is Father to the Man" album by Al's brainchild B,S & T to realize he's the real deal.
3-0 out of 5 stars A rock & roll/R&B chameleon for over 4 decades
Al Kooper has been called a musical Zelig, and like Woody Allen's protagnoist, he has not only been present at many critical events in music history, but has adapted his own considerable talent to fit in to each one and altered the outcome of those milestones - Just think of his work with Dylan, Blues Project, BS&T, the Stones, Skynyrd, ... Track down his excellent autobiography for all the details. (Or check the timeline on the insert to this CD)

4-0 out of 5 stars One of the best indy rock bands of the 80's
I saw the Del Fuegos in Manchester, NH during their tour with the Georgia Satellites and Tom Petty, for their second or third album.They were hands down one of the best indy rock bands of the 1980's.They toured with Petty when he was hitting the big time, kind of like when the Meat Puppets toured with Nirvana. They put on a smokin' good show, true blue rockers. This is American music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Fantastic, could've been even better
As great as it is to have the whole of the 1st album The Longest Day available at last on cd for this compilation it seems an opportunity lost not to have spread the selection more evenly over the first 3 albums. It's hard to call really because if they never release the 1st album on cd then this will be indispensable. Nonetheless this could only be a minimum 5 star review. The Del Fuegos were (please get together again guys)one of the most underrated bands ever and should have made it absolutely huge. They had everything you'd ever want from a rock and roll band but what set them miles apart from other bands of the time was their excellent songwriting (for a starter just listen to Backseat Nothing, I Still Want You and I Can't Take This Place). The 2nd album Boston, Mass. is my favourite of the 3 and it's criminal that they left off two of the best songs (Hold Us Down & especially the blistering Shame). The 3rd album is great,very underrated and although not as good as the first two it would have been nice to have had some more songs on the compilation such as Long Slide (for an out), Town Called Love and Name Names.Read more

Editorial Review

Long before they became American rock legends and Grammy favorites, Los Lobos (or rather Los Lobos del Este de Los Angeles--the Wolves of East Los Angeles--as they were then known) turned a faithful musical tutelage by their parents' Mexican folk music records into a steady stream of gigs at parties, weddings, and what was then a career plateau--a regular engagement at a Mexican restaurant. They also invested in this long out-of-print 1978 independent recording of the best of their all-acoustic traditional Mexican repertoire of that time. Perhaps prophetic of the fusion to come, they named themselves after a popular Tex-Mex group, Los Lobos del Norte, but titled the LP in a good-natured nod to Frank Zappa. Though light years from the experimentation of Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Incredible guitar work
This album consists of all tradional-style songs, which were recorded before the band's rise to fame.Songs showcase the incredible talent of Los Lobos, making what is kinda cheesy music sound really cool. I also recomend "This Time", a little more garage rock influenced, but also with some folk-songs on it.

Without a doubt this collection of Los Lobos5-0 out of 5 stars In The Beginning There Was This Little Band From East L.A...
This is a must have for not only Los Lobos fans but those somewhat interested in their music. This album contains truly classic Mexican traditional songs that I used to hear as a child at family gatherings and continue to hear to this day with much pride and honor ! The guitar/acoustical arrangements are truly flawless and crisp. The rhythms are highly infectious and the melodies will stay with the listener long after the fiesta is over or the cd player stops ! Sabor A Mi is a timeless romantic bolero interpreted over the decades by other Latino artists (Trio Los Panchos come to mind). Here The Lobos do the song much justice with their perfect rendition. Guitars never sounded so awesome ! Yes, the Spanish language is beautiful (even if some listeners don't understand it). It's the music and harmonic vocals tht should captivate (and do) regardless of any language... ... Read more

Editorial Review

Ripe with the enigmas of loss, love, and connections across great distances, Alejandro Escovedo's sixth solo album realizes the promise of his remarkable gifts as singer, songwriter, and arranger. On spiraling tiers of pedal steel, cellos, violins, and electric and acoustic guitars, his chamber-rock vision comes to full fruition. He's never made freer garage pop than "Castanets," never stirred a more sweeping lyricism than in "Don't Need You," and never laid bare more soul than in the heartbreaking "Follow You Down" (a ballad Escovedo often dedicates to Townes Van Zandt). Even more amazing are the pairing of "Wave" and "Rosalie," subtle dramas of the Mexican-American passage through separation and faith, and the swirling, aching "About This Love," which concludes "It's all about the way/We break, to love again." Escovedo has always sought a poetic fusing of sound and image; with Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Alejandro has ME under the influence!
One of the finest song writers going on anywhere. He writes from his heart about personal things that we can all relate to. I love this guy. I have for years. Since Rank and File on down the line. His songs breaks and mends hearts. Alejandro, i will quit my day job and be your roadie!

5-0 out of 5 stars Unique and Wonderful
Alejandro Escovedo is a Mexican-American guitarist, vocalist, and songwriter and his music is incredibly difficult to categorize.At times he ranges across country and rock landscapes performing ballads, love songs, haunting melodic studies, and scorching rock and roll.There are moments when his songs are reminiscent of the Eagles in the way they are arranged and in the lyrical structures, yet his is a solo voice that is compelling without the support of harmony.I bought the CD on the strength of songs like "Velvet Guitar" and "Castanets" which were getting a lot of radio airplay in Austin.Over time, I have come to love the rest of this album even more than those two tracks.Alejandro is a fine singer and a very good guitarist, but the strength of this album is his songwriting and arranging.This is one of those recordings that true music fans will appreciate more after a dozen or so playings than they do at first.The music is complex and multi-layered, despite the simplicity of the single voice and guitar that are featured on most tracks.

5-0 out of 5 stars Estas canciones son para ti...
"These songs are for you..." Alejandro Escovedo closes out his dedication to his sister Alice, in 'A Man Under the Influence', and truth be told, these songs feel as if they are written for and sung to each and everyone of us individually.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Well worth the wait Willie
We finally have CD access to Willie Nile's early work.Covering a wide range of history from the Regean years to Clinton(Hard Times...), it is interesting to hear this work against the world events of the time. Aside from thoughtful and meaningful lyrics, songs like "Vagabond Moon" are just great rock songs with poetic and romantic sensibilities.On carefully listening, there are some really creative and interesting Buddy Holly-esque chords--just fantastic stuff.Other tunes like "It's All Over" are heartbreakers with romantic poetry:"In a church yard by the frozen shore"--a valentine for any Buffalonian.

4-0 out of 5 stars Captures The Mood
Ry Cooder has always been one of the most understated players I listen to; He hides in layers, almost demanding your complete attention to fully hear and understand each musical statement; Some of his best material has always been from the movies; 'Southern Comfort', 'Johnny Handsome', and 'The Long Riders' have some of his best work(sadly this CD was released before 'Last Man Standing', which I consider some of his rawest work to date...). Still, while not every track here is a great one, this is a nice CD to throw on and go about your day, pausing every once in awhile for those moments that will catch your ear...and there are plenty of them. Lots of different styles of music, mostly instrumental. Nice production;Excellent headphone experience; A really good retrospective of an excellent musician.

5-0 out of 5 stars If you're a Ry Cooder Fan, and you like Instrumental Music......
For those of you that are fans of 'Ry Cooders' work, collecting his music is something of a daunting proposition.With a collection of regular Studio albums totalling some 25+ albums (with 2005 utterly sublime "Chavez Ravine", being the most recent).If you are (like I am) a relatively newbie to his music, picking which albums to start with is an slightly tricky option.
4-0 out of 5 stars The Good Stuff Is Good Stuff!!
I enjoy the movie 'Southern Comfort' which had it's soundtrack performed by Ry Cooder. This is the only CD (I believe) that features the songs from that film. This is a collection that features a diverse selection of Ry Cooder's music from a number of films. Some of it is very good. The track 'Theme From Southern Comfort' is very haunting especialy if you turn all the lights out and listen to it in darkness. I also really like the track 'Klan Meeting' from the film The Alamo, however I've never seen the film itself. Another film I do have is 'The Long Riders' which also featured Ry Cooder in the soundtrack. Some of these tracks are included here and are good listening. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Ghosts (A Grey One)That do Reappear.
Henry Pauls Greyghost may have not turned to many heads upon release, with the exception of two songs. "So Long and Greyghost", but there is a lot of great music on this selection. A great dose of the country-rock that stuck around for a while. If you heard and liked The Outlaws check it out. (Where do you think Henry Paul came from)..Marshall Tucker, Allman Bros, all of those you'll like this. The sound is incredible. A vast difference from the cassette and album version I had growing up. This digitally remastered version really kicks..Somebody out there wants to hear it. It was dusted off and re-released and enhanced. Check it out............(SO LONG) now

Editorial Review

One of the few contemporary bands to land a decidedly roots-rock song on the charts with 2004's Grammy-winning "Heaven," Los Lonely Boys solidified their status as youngsters with an established sound on their first disc. On this highly anticipated studio followup, all talk of the sophomore jinx dissipates with the opening soul-drenched riff rocker "My Way." Although horns are added for extra drama, the three Garza brothers nail this groove as Henry's Stevie Ray Vaughan-fortified guitar powers one of the boys' most fiery performances. Supporter and mentor Willie Nelson joins on the wah-wah driven, Waylon Jennings-styled "Outlaws," as does the brothers' musician father Enrique Sr. Tough midtempo ballads such as "Home" and the very Santana-ish "I Never Met a Woman" follow in the footsteps of "Heaven" as candidates for slow dance song of the year.Read more

Editorial Review

Very rarely is a legendary band able to come up with new, credible material. Jam band progenitors the Allman Brothers have done better than that, tapping into some of the spark that made them one of the most influential American bands of their time. The lineup has changed due to tragedy, discontent, and plain orneriness, but the band is still able to conjure up dark tales of thwarted romance, dashed ambitions, and enduring friendship and tether them to freefalling slide riffs, jazzy interludes, and soulful blues that have been staples of the band since 1969. Granted, some of the guitar solos aren't an heroic as they were when Dickey Betts in the fold, but the ballad "Desdamona" is as inspired as "Melissa," and Gregg Allman's singing has never been better.

5-0 out of 5 stars A 5 star effort from Gregg, Warren, and Derek
I hate that Dickey is not in the band any longer but Haynes and Trucks are such a strong guitar team that I have to give Hittin' The Note 5 stars.Greg is back in fine form (finally staying sober).This is an even better effort than 'Where It All Begins'.
5-0 out of 5 stars BEST ALLMAN ALBUM
This album has a great blend of Southern Rock, Jazz, Great Guitars added by the great voice of Gregg Allman. This album need to be heard at least 5 times before making any judgements; after that it is going to take some effort removing this album from the CD player. None of the previous work of the Allman brothers come close. highly highly recommended.
5-0 out of 5 stars Still the best
All around great job here. It's a long CD but with no waste. Desdomona , High Cost, Heart of Stone, Instrumental Illness, and Old before my time are all good enough to make an early 70s LP.I had the pleasure of seeing a few of these songs performed live well before the CD release. Gregg brought the house down when he previewed Desdemona and his singing is in great form here. Can I give this one 5 1/2 stars? ... Read more

If you're not up and dancing around after listening to this record for 30 seconds, something is wrong with you.

Very early sound. Not as flavorful as the album "Dickey Betts and Great Southern".

Editorial Review

This supergroup with ever-changing personnel (no longer limited to seven) is less a band than a bilingual concept and boundary-crossing vision. The third and most rambunctious release under the Los Super Seven banner takes its title from the ZZ Top anthem celebrating the Mexican border radio of the 1950s and '60s. With the title track sung by Tejano mainstay Ruben Ramos, the transgenerational duet on "Cupid" by Freddy Fender and Rick Trevino, and the alcohol-fueled mariachi of "The El Burro Song" performed by the Mavericks' Raul Malo (a ringer of Cuban descent), the Hispanic imprint on the project remains much in evidence. From the northern side of the musical border, Lyle Lovett revives Bob Wills's "My Window Faces the South," Rodney Crowell renews Buddy Holly's "Learning the Game," and Joe Ely covers Holly acolyte Bobby Fuller's "Let Her Dance."Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Texas Border Radio Remembered
What it means to be Texan, musically speaking, can just not be described to sons or daughters of the other lower 47. it just has to be heard and experienced. Between the diminutive borderlines of most other states there is culture and certain musical essences. But none, I believe, quite compare. (Typical Texan Braggadoccio I know. But I mean no disrespect) I've given "Heard It On The X" a good listen, and that unique mix of Country, Blues, Traditional Mexican, Swing and Pop, that is the natural part of all Texans, is well represented here. It is a bright and fun listen, as well as a slightly glossy nod to the old days of Border Radio, in the 60's particularly. I'm not a true fan of all the individual artists performing here, but the artistry and song selection is the main measuring stick for me. Great songs! Great musicians! Great engineering! all make for a terrific CD. It is an invitation to dance and smile and have a good time, South Texas style, to anyone listening. "Heard It On The X" is well worth the money. You won't be disappointed if you know what you are getting.

4-0 out of 5 stars This Is Not Really A Review
Just three observations:
5-0 out of 5 stars unbelievable!
In this day and age of lip syncing and homogonized, packed for the masses music it is pretty refreshing to listen to this disc. Great musicians and great songs makes for one terrific disc. I could go on and on, but believe me, this is the best disc so far this year. Guaranteed you'll NEVER hear music this good on the radio! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fogerty's best post CCR work
For me it comes down to two American bands:The Ramones and CCR.They are our Beatles and The Stones.They're both deeply steeped in Americana and they both sound unmistakeably American.But where the Ramones chose to amp up the 50's, John Fogarty always chanelled old blues and country music and his love of the latter is nowhere more obvious than on this CD.
5-0 out of 5 stars great country music from California's swamp king
Fogarty's solo debut(Originally released without his name attached) finds him in excellent voice that is a perfect match to the material he has chosen. Supposedly it is a totally solo effort with Fogarty ovedubbing all the instruments and back up vocals, which makes the results even more amazing. It drips with authenticity and enjoyment. A great album.

4-0 out of 5 stars Fogerty back to his blugrass roots with bravura.
This is simpel,straightforward, bluegrass at his best so to speak. Nothing much goes wrong on this CD. Today it`s sound very fresh and ooozes with quality in every department. Track 1 Blue ridge mouintain blues set`s the standard, with it`s rythmic swing with enough musical yiaah to make the day. Track 2 Somewhere listening[for my name]is more in the gospel tradition, but it works very well. Not so much tempo, but the soooooul is there,and Fogerty voice is great to listen too. Track 3 You`re the reason is more in the "jooodelio" country type of music. It`s simpel and stripped to the bone. Track 4 Jambalaya is the Hank Williams classic, but the Fogerty version swings like hell. Track 5 She thinks i still care, is back to more traditional country. To much cliched are baked in on this track. A minor let down. Track 6 California Blues (Blue Jodel #4) is a Jimmy Rodgers classic, that Fogerty does as his own. A great listen. Simpel and effective. Track 7 Workin on a building sounds like a mish mash between a negro spiritual and country, and when it goes up in tempo it swings like h...!. Track 8 Please help me falling is back in the more traditional type of country, A so so country, but Fogerty voice saves it.
