4-0 out of 5 stars What about the extra tracks?
Often it seems like the first cd you ever get by a band, the one that makes you a fan, that'll often be your favorite, for nostalgic reasons if nothing else.That's the case with STILL FEEL GONE for me.Even though ANODYNE is more mature and impressive, and NO DEPRESSION is more intense, somehow this is still my favorite.
5-0 out of 5 stars Complete Album
There are only a couple songs on this album that verge on ordinary; the rest come together into a complete, albeit short, listening experience.
5-0 out of 5 stars still feel gone, indeed...
a month or so ago, a buddy burned me a copy of some UT bootleg from the mid 90s (it's unofficially called 'Last Call') and though i had most of the songs, it came across as a revelation. the only missing cd i had was 'still feel gone' (i got into the band just as they were breaking up), and now i have it. the buddy who burned me the live cd said 'y'know, that band never should have broken up. those two guys brought out the best in each other, and while there are some good wilco and son volt songs, those first three albums were the high water mark.' alas, after listening to this, and going into the back catalogue to hear anodyne and march 17-21, 1992, i sadly must agree. these guys were BEYOND great; the best thing that american music produced since Gram's Flying Burrito Brothers... what fine, fine music... ...

Editorial Review

Most of the artists on this tribute to Sam Phillips's legendary Memphis label have chosen to cover the rockabilly hits. It isn't until a genuine Sun rockabilly artist--the late Carl Perkins--makes an appearance, joining Van Morrison for Howlin' Wolf's "Sittin' on Top of the World," that things briefly get bluesy. Instead, Paul McCartney, Jeff Beck, Chrissie Hynde, Tom Petty, and Bryan Ferry all offer up loving, note-for-note recreations of early Elvis tunes, even if it was Jerry Lee Lewis, not Elvis, who recorded a cover of "Don't Be Cruel" (Ferry's tune) for Sun.

3-0 out of 5 stars It Rocks,however...
A tribute to Sun Records and not a cut from the Killer?? Jerry Lee Lewis lives right down the road from Sun Studio,so why was he excluded from a "tribute" to his old stable? For all who may not know,he still ROCKS,and does so with alot of gusto!! I did enjoy the Dylan cut,as well as McCartney,ChrissieHynde,Van and Carl,Kid Rock,Cheryl,and the rest,many of these tunes have been covered before,and were hits, many by the guy who was snubbed,Mr. Lewis! So what gives?? If the listener isn"t aware of Sam Phillips,the big "E",Carl,Killer,Cash,Warren Smith,Howlin Wolk ,Rufus Thomas and all the rest,then this will help open a door to some reat roots music for them,I found it refreshing overall.

2-0 out of 5 stars Not a legacy to stand on
If this were a tribute record, it would be but one of many that have littered the record and CD shelves for the past forty years or so.But this is not a tribute record.It is "the legacy of Sun Records" (see subtitle).What does that mean, exactly?I have no idea, but, apparently, the Sun legacy consists of clueless Sun "cover" versions offered up by clueless celebrity rockers.Somebody should contest the will, in my opinion.(Wait-isn't Sam Phillips still alive?)5-0 out of 5 stars Pulled Off A Very Difficult Project--Great Album!
Let me preface by saying I'm a big fan of American roots music. Growing up, I absolutely craved this type of stuff.I could find a few Howlin' Wolf and Muddy Waters records at the local library and I "borrowed" my grandfathers Hank Williams record, but Elvis Presley was about the only Sun music readily available. RCA's release of the Complete Sun Sessions in 87 lead me to a general interest in the sun music catalog.Many of the songs I owned as EPs that had been given to me by my grandmother.As a graduating senior from college 93, I took a road trip to Memphis and visited Sun Studio.In the store above the studio, I purchased 2U.K. Import CDs from Charley Records Limited, The Sun Story Vol. 1 Sunrise & The Sun Story Vol. 2 Rockabilly Rhythm.You wouldn't think that the Europeans would have a better handle on our own music but that always seems to be the case.

It was with much anticipation that I purchased this disc.I have always loved the Band, and I think Levon had one of the greatest voices in "Rock and Blues" music.He makes you believe it when he sings it!He is also one of the all time best drummers in the genre.Any band that includes Levon Helm, Paul Butterfield, "Duck" Dunn, Dr. John, Howard Johnson, etc. is bound to be good.

5-0 out of 5 stars Chicken skin feel allover this CD. Cooder`sk magic
The sound. The voice. In other word this is magical and overcool, and very relaxable music. Ry Cooder made this in the year 1979, and it still stand`s out as a CD which gives you the most. The "chicken skin" atmosphere kicks in already on track 1 Little Sister. It`s moody, with an atmospheric chorus, with great plinking on the guitar`s.
4-0 out of 5 stars "Toilet seat blue..."
...was the way I think Ry described his Fender's finish in an old Guitar Player interview. Part of Cooder's genius was/is arranging electric and acoustic instruments in a way that's satisfying to fans of both. Granted, "Bop" is not a blues record and neither is the music it reinterprets. Still, Ry's open D and G comping is a pleasure to hear and learn from. But, for a guy whose prior records just "sounded" so terrific, the digital production sheen on this one was a disappointment at the time and, while fun to hear again after so long, for my taste, "Bop" can't quite take its place among his best.

5-0 out of 5 stars Wonderful music all the way through
I've been a Ry Cooder junky since the early 70s, and wish we'd seen more of him in the last 10 or 15 years.Not that I don't like his "world music" dabbling -- it's really an extension of what he did for American musical traditions during the first half of his career.

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Solid Set
Consistency might seem a tad mean-spirited when pinning Helm's,'Ties That Bind' compilation. However, its the vitality and raunchiness that are consistent. Having dipped into some of his solo efforts since the Band went on the blink, I was more than pleasantly surprised by Raven Record's astute collection. I'd clearly rate this above any of those solo works. 'Don't Ya Tell Henry' is easily superior to the version available on theBasementTapes. 'Lucretia'is a sister tune to,'Ophelia' and every bit its equal. The Cate Brother's,'Standing On A Mountain Top', makes a welcome reappearance. The heart rending, 'Caves of Jericho', sounds like a worthy Band outtake that could accompany, 'Arcadian Driftwood'. The playing is uniformly tight and upbeat. Only,'The Weight' and,'Rock, Salt And Nails', fail to convince among this very generous 19 song selection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good retrospective
After several listenings I am now prepared to rate some of the songs on this CD.I will rate them in order of personal preference:1) "Don't Ya Tell Henry" an off-the-wall Bob Dylan nonsense lyric which is nonetheless typical of what Dylan can do if he puts his energies to the task.2) Toss-up among: "Standing On The Mountain Top", "When I Get My Rewards", and the mellow "Watermelon Time In Georgia."3) "Caves of Jericho": I am not sure it is proper to so honor a song about such an unmitigated public disaster.The song is similar to Peter Paul & Mary's "Spring Hill Mining Disaster" and to the Band's own "The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down," both of which are also about public disasters.4) Honorable mention: "Hurricane."

5-0 out of 5 stars Levon really is a classic
Great album especailly the first 6 tracks.People really don't recognize Levon's singing and playing abilities for how great they really are.Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Joseph Byrd and Ry Cooder make magic!
Yes, Ry is a wonderful guitar player.And, yes, the material is well chosen.Yes.Yes.Yes to all the other reviews.But let's give a hand to the arranger, as well.Within the first few notes after placing the 12" LP of Jazz on my turntable many years ago, I was scrambling to find who did the arranging!
5-0 out of 5 stars CLASSIC!
I have owned this since 1978, first vinyl, then CD.It is one album I will never be without.I defy anyone to listen to "We Will Be Happy" without believing it, or to keep from dancing to "Happy Meeting in Glory", and I've already requested "Face to Face That I Shall Meet Him," be played at my funeral, when that regrettable event becomes necessary (in the far distant future). This is joyous music, and highly evocative of a simpler though imperfect era.This is one of Ry Cooder's best!

5-0 out of 5 stars Great music
I bought this album years ago (I have it on vinyl) after watching a special with Ry Cooder on PBS playing this music.I was hooked.I love all the songs.The gospel quartet is awesome.At the end of the TV show, he sang "Coming in on a Wing and a Prayer"and I wish it was on this album.Otherwise, I highly recommend you get this CD and if you know where I can get a recording of that last song, let me know. ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Treasure-Trove
"Identity Crisis" is a good set from Shelby Lynne.The diversity of musical approaches makes the title appropriate."Gotta Be Better" is an excellent track with some blazing electric lead that lashes the speakers & Lynne's infectious vocals, "And did you ever think you'd ever walk on hallow ground?Don't you like to think that things are lost & never found?Discover all the secrets & head out for the sound.Did you hear the voice that makes your fever?""I'm Alive" also has a delightful rocking groove, "Oh if I don't get you back, I'll cover up my bloody tracks with sorrow, hopes & hide my dying pride."The dreamy Shelby Lynne does Nick Drake track "If I Were Smart" communicates a soft gentle sadness that Shelby fills exquisitely."Telephone," "10 Rocks" & "Baby" are all great tracks.With "Suit Yourself" about to hit the market, "Identity Crisis" is still a treasure-trove.Enjoy!

Ry Cooder may have been an in-demand session guitarist in the late '60s, but what set him apart in his early solo career was his extraordinary, if eccentric, taste in songs. Here he explores the repertoires of everyone from Johnny Cash to Bahaman folk master Joseph Spence to Leadbelly with enchanting results. While Cooder's vocal skills are no match for his slide guitar and mandolin talents (the latter showcased splendidly in "Hey Porter" and "Billy the Kid"), he's an amiable singer who resists the temptation to camp it up, even when essaying such antiquated oddities as "FDR in Trinidad" and "Taxes on the Farmer Feeds Us All."

5-0 out of 5 stars The Return to the Purple Valley.
Ry Cooder has shown us a wide variety and diversification of musical influences since this 1972 release, but to me, this is his best effort. I love the broad range of musical influences that he has taken over the years, including the commercially successful Buena Vista Social Club, however, Into the Purple Valley is where he is at home. Frombeginning to end, this album carries such a magical feel, particularly the struggles of the poor and oppressed from a long ago era, however, seems to give us an indication that maybe our own "blues" maybe waiting around the corner for us all. ( You must remember that Nixon was in office when this was released...need I say more?). My personal favorites are "FDR in Trinidad", " How Can a Man Stand Such Times and Live", and the ever amazing rendition of "Vigilante Man". I love Mr. Cooder's travels into the realms of other cultures and rhythems. Through these venture, he has broadened our knowledge and appreciation for the sounds and rhythems of our world through the eyes and ears of those who we would have otherwise never known or heard. However, I feel that there is more for him to explore and interpret from The Heart of America and to give his own special stamp of originality. To those of you who have never heard "Into the Purple Valley" have no hesitation in going out immediately and purchasing. It will become one of your very favorites. And To Mr. Cooder, when you grow weary of world travels, come on back to the Purple Valley. We will all be waiting for you.

5-0 out of 5 stars I wish I had this CD
I purchased this CD a year ago, right about the time when I was, coincidentally, doing a history project about the Dust Bowl. It provided the perfect backround music for it, and I have loved it ever since. In my mind there are no weak tracks, with the possible exception of Teardrops Will Fall, which I did not care for at first, but has grown on me. What amazed me the most about this album was the diversity within the particular style of music Cooder is dealing with. I normally group music like this under the term "down home," but on this disk that can range from folk to blues, or even a bit of calypso. I unfortunately lost this CD, along with Chickenskin Music, on a Continental Airlines flight this summer (and was rudely accomodated too), but I am sure that I will own it again in the near future.

It's easy to understand why people like the Subdudes, for the Colorado-based quartet blends the laid-back acoustic instrumentation and vocal harmonies of Southern California with the funky backbeat of New Orleans, where the musicians first got together.

4-0 out of 5 stars Winwood Jr
I like the music on this CD very much, but am surprised none of the reviews mention how much singer Malone sounds like Stevie Winwood, esp early Winwood with the Spencer Davis Group and the first two Traffic albums. It's obvious to me that he has spent hundreds of hours listening to Winwood. Throw in a dash of Little Feat, lean on acoustic sounds and that seems to be The Subdudes formula. Not the most original music out there but so sweet it's like all-American See's chocolate, you can't help but like it even though you know there are more artful chocolates around.
5-0 out of 5 stars One of their best efforts
I have been listening to the Dudes since the late 90's when I listened to 'Primitive Streak' at a Borders listening station. I was blown away with their vocals and the originality of their music. I have all their recordings, except the new one with the mule. The Dudes are like a Cajun version of Sonia Dada. Their is just no other group like them. Mumbo Gumbo is similar, but the Dudes are much better. Every recording on this CD is a pleasure; it is full of 5 star recordings. 'You'll Be Satisfied' is a standout recording. 'Why Can't I Forget About You' is a beautiful, soul-felt song. 'Save Me' is fantastic, as is 'Sugar Pie' and 'I Know'.
5-0 out of 5 stars In a word: Awesome
I fist ran into this band in NOLA, where I lived for some time.I was so very impressed (blown away, actually) by the band at JazzFest and followed-up with a hunt of my local music haunts.Being a fan of live music, studio tracks usually dissapoint.This album of heartfelt lyrics, melodies and harmonies is one of my absolute favorites.This is a fine representation of the band and some of the talent to be found in their home town of New Orleans (it isn't all Jazz, Cajun and Zydeco!).This disk seems to find its way into my car's player, my computer at work and is never far from my stereo at home.I have introduced many people to this album - and all have taken to it and the subdudes (always spelled in lower-case).Annunciation is my favorite.It is a true treasure.Read more

Memphis soul meets Mississippi juke joint in the music of down-home piano legend James Luther Dickinson. Though Dickinson has had more credits as a producer--for the Replacements and his sons in the North Mississippi Allstars--and as a session musician (for the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, and Ry Cooder), he brings that same rough-hewn passion at the expense of polish to his own music. The album-opening "Red Neck, Blue Collar" is a populist anthem, while the balladry of "Violin Bums," "Out of Blue," and "Somewhere Down the Road" plumbs the depths of Dickinson's soulfulness. From the greasy groove of "Love Bone" to the sounds of the Brazilian street corner on the closing "Samba de Orfeo," Dickinson and band (featuring Allstar sons Luther on guitar and Cody on drums) cover a lot of territory, with arrangements augmented by fiddle, baritone sax, and chorus harmonies. Though Dickinson didn't write any of the material, he puts his musical signature on all of it. Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Brilliant, Brilliant, Brilliant
Over-the-top reviews are hard to believe, but figure it -- why would anyone take the time to do this if they don't love or hate something? I LOVE this CD. It burst into my life a few months ago and it hasn't left. The best cut is "Me Voy Pa'l Pueblo" which is such an upbeat tour de force, both infectiously and musically. But that's just my first favorite. There are my other favorites: Siboney, Calle Dieceseis, El Pescador, Compay Gato, Campesino. Unbelievable amount of great songs and renditions on one CD. It's hard to believe this CD was recorded in one week, but it goes with the miracle that it is -- that this sort of meeting of talent and thrill doesn't happen often anyway so why shouldn't it happen in one week!

5-0 out of 5 stars Music to drink margaritas by...
This is like a Mexican/Texan supergroup with various musicians mixing it up on various songs. Some of the musicians who come and go are Raul Malo, David Hidalgo, Cesar Rosas, Steve Berlin, Rick Trevino and many more talents. Every song is sung in either Spanish or Portuguese which usually makes it harder for me to appreciate but this CD is so great, I had no problem getting past the foreign lyrics. This is music to drink margaritas by!

5-0 out of 5 stars A fine mix
This album takes off in an interesting different direction for this group. I stumbled onto it on REal Rhapsody and was hooked right away. A fine mix of old standards that any latin music fan will recognize, but all done in distinctive, ear-catching ways. New tunes as well, and the funny but right addition of Veloso's Brazilian portuguese into the otherwise Spanish mix.

I'm a big latin music fan, have listened to the entire brilliant variety of musics from the latin world, and this album is right up there with the best. ... Read more

Whether you are a fun of rock a billy or Christmas songs, this cd is for you.High energy, the tempo keeps you moving the entire cd.Excellent versions of classic Christmas songs in a new rock way without taking away from the song itself.Outstanding musicianship throughout the cd.

5-0 out of 5 stars Setzer Makes Christmas Fun Again!
I've had this cd since it was first released and I never tire of listening. I can't wait to bring it out and pop into my cd player every season. This is not your run of the mill "Chestnuts Roasting" holiday collection. Setzer starts fast and never lets up. "Jingle Bells", "Boogie Woogie Santa", and "Winter Wonderland" sizzle with great big band swing arrangements, of which Setzer is a master. "Blue Christmas" is basic rockabilly at it's best. In "Santa Claus is Back in Town" the guitar slinger shows his blues side; it's raw and powerful. "Baby it"s Cold Outside" with Ann-Margret is so hot, you might need to go roll in the snow afterwards. More fun follows with "The Nutcracker", "Man with the Bag", and "Sleigh Ride". "So They Say it's Christmas" (the only Setzer composition on this cd) and "O Holy Night" will not disappoint. Buy this and, like a kid, start counting the days 'til December.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Simple Joy
I grew up listening to these guys (30+++ years).I've never gotten tired of listening.Quite the contrary.If you're in a bad mood, throw on any NRBQ album and your mood will lighten immediately.Try it!

5-0 out of 5 stars A great moment in Yankee Stadium history
It was the spring of '78. The sun was shining. The Yankees were enjoying (though not for long before going back to battling among themselves) their first world championship since I was a year old. Phil Rizzuto was about to earn his first and only gold record for his play-by-play of Meat Loaf trying to beat Ellen Foley's tag at the plate. And four musicians were making history by just sitting next to the first-base dugout at the empty Stadium -- just so they could do a photo shoot so they could have a wiseass title for one of the best rock'n'roll albums ever recorded.

Editorial Review

Few country songwriters are both smarter and funnier than Robbie Fulks, though his humor has saddled him with a reputation as a purveyor of smart-aleck novelty fare. Except for the hillbilly hokum of "I'm Gonna Take You Home (And Make You Like Me)," he plays it comparatively straight on Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Country Artist Since Hank Sr.
This is not hyperbole. Robbie Fulks grabbed me with his early (mid-nineties) work, in which he channeled Hank and honky-tonk greats like Ray Price and Buck Owens. But he's no mere imitator, even though imitations of old-time country would still be better than anything on the radio today. For instance, the new Lee Ann Womack is a lovely throwback LP, but it does not break any new ground. Fulks, in his country efforts (Country Love Songs, South Mouth, 13 Hillbilly Giants) has somehow managed to cover that familiar turf and mine out a sound all his own.
5-0 out of 5 stars Something for all tastes
Wonderful songwriter, clever lyrics, great music. A must-buy. You will not regret having this in your collection.

4-0 out of 5 stars Best Robbie Fulks since South Mouth
Robbie Fulks' song writing is absolutely brilliant.I agree with those who say that when Fulks dies his brain should be examined by experts.He lost me with a couple of his recent CDs, but this not this one.I would have given five stars, but I just don't like the track "I'm Gonna Take You Home (And Make You Like Me)".What the heck, I'll just skip it and shut up now.Another Robbie Fulks CD I recommend is "South Mouth". ...

5-0 out of 5 stars An Amazing CD...
Wow, I did not expect to hear this. Who ARE these guys? I was hesitant at first to order it because there was no way to hear any of the tracks, but I knew who Mason Jennings was and I liked his style so I took a chance. Unbelievable! This is album is completely stripped down, you can practically hear them recording in someone's basement. They've got a funky, chilled-out, reggae/rock vibe and soulful lyrics. This CD is a must-have if you like Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, Mason Jennings, etc. or if you just love great acoustic music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hidden Treasure
If you are a fan of Jack Johnson, Ben Harper, etc.. you will love this album. I was hesistant to purchase this at first, since I had never heard anything about the band, but I ended up making a great choice by purchasing this fabulous cd. It is unfortunate that there aren't more of The Beautiful Girls' albums in the US.

5-0 out of 5 stars dreaming of summer...
4 weeks ago i moved from Sydney, Australia (the hometown of the Girls) to Zurich Switzerland. I've always liked this album, its got some nice catchy acoustic pop tunes but its only since I've moved that its taken on new meaning. The Beautiful Girls are truly one of Australia's best kept secrets and one of their best live acts. While they may not have the dynamic stage presence that other aussie bands like AC/DC or Wolfmother have, these guys are really fantastic.

Al Anderson is an anomaly. Taller than six-five and built like a linebacker, he's a mammoth of a man who could pile-drive any other musician off the tallest Marshall stack. But stick a pen in his hand, and Big Al has the heart of a lover. This is the Al Anderson of NRBQ fame, but not the faux apologist of "It Was a Accident" (1979's Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Now THAT'S what I call Country!!!
Very few people believe that I am a fan of country music because I'm rarely ever found listening to it.That's mainly because I find so much country music nowadays unimaginative, redundant and just plain boring.One paradigm I have long held onto is that great country music (just like great blues music) sounds like something you could imagine playing yourself on a back porch.
1-0 out of 5 stars At last!An X album I DON'T like!
Here I thought they were infallible and they go do this one-off "ner ner" music that inspires intimate thoughts regarding blood relations and livestock.I played it backwards and not only did I sober up, but my wife came back to me, my dog came back to life, my truck got fixed, the bank took the lien off my house and I bowled a perfect game!
5-0 out of 5 stars knitters equal awesome
this band is great both live and on cd. the songs get in your head and haunt you. they are all hillbilly bluegrass inspired and they mean all the more if you are a john doe and exene fan or a dave alvin fan or a fan of the 80's hollywood punk scene. Hear john and exene mention l.a. band cohorts the rhythm pigs. hear the tearful songs of broken hearts made all the more poignant by the fact that they were breaking up their long time marriage. its an incredible timeless cd. buy it. ...

2-0 out of 5 stars Nashville's attempt at alt-country
As soul-less a compilation of alt-country as I've come across..."This is Americana" (or at least how Nashville supposedly has defined it) rarely gets off the ground. The few good songs on here get dragged down by annoying filler.
1-0 out of 5 stars EXCUSE ME, BUT WHERE ARE
Chris Hillman and Herb Pedersen, Bernie Leadon, Steve Young, the Woodys and even Burrito Deluxe?
5-0 out of 5 stars How can you NOT buy this for such a low price?
Whether your perspective on this CD is as an introduction to broader musical interests or a supplement to your current collection of Americana material, you simply can't pass up this bargain.I was already a fan of large amouts of bluegrass and alternative country, two genres intertwined with the "Americana" scene, so I knew several songs on this compilation already.However, it's a good listen in itself, and it sent me off to buy more good music I'd just discovered.

Rock's most sure-handed journeyman, Paul Carrack is slowly working his way around to singing with every band in existence. And why not? He's had success with more than a few already, scoring hits with Ace ("How Long"), Squeeze ("Tempted"), Mike & the Mechanics ("Silent Running (On Dangerous Ground")), and as a duet partner with Carlene Carter ("Do Me Lover").

5-0 out of 5 stars Great tribute to Paul Carrack's music career
I have to say that Paul Carrack has to be one of the best pop singers to do well in bands as well as solo. They do a good job compiling his best hits with Ace (How Long), Squeeze (Tempted), Mike and the Mechanics and his solo hits (Don't Shed A Tear). But my favorite solo song from Paul is One Good Reason from 1987 as that song rocks big time, from the horns to the guitars!Unfortunately, Don't Shed A Tear was played more during that time and One Good Reason got only some minor buzz. Reason seemed more comfortable to some with the low key rock guitar. But the other songs are good candidates to this effort. Paul just loves to perform and this collection justifies his major success as an artist for close to 3 decades.

5-0 out of 5 stars Nice collection for a good singer/composer
"Twenty-One Good Reasons" provides a good presentation to the music (and the voice) of Paul Carrack.Ace, Squeeze, Carlene Carter and even Mike & The Mechanics have received the benefits of working with such a good performer like Mr. Carrack. If you are seriously engaged with 70s Pop & Rock music, this CD is A MUST for you!

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my all-time favorite cd's
This, by far, is one of my favorite cd's.Paul Carrack has one of the most fabulous voices around and I believe, is very underrated.This is an awesome cd and great to have on when cleaning--you can't help singing along to!:)Love the tracks with Carlene Carter! A must have for even the slightest fan.I was lucky enough to see him perform with Ringo Starr (in his All-Star Band)and his voice is still so smooooooth!! ... Read more
