4-0 out of 5 stars When The Dust Settles
When Walter Hill's,'Long Rider' is but a distant memory(of surplus sprays of bullets, a great choeography of a bunch of desperados on horseback escaping through a window, and the cute ploy of having actor brothers fit the sibling sets of the story) Cooder's soundtrack will continue to resonate. He has an ear for the era. Not for the first time. Another grandly promoted film,'Paris ,Texas', has receded from its initial afflatus, while Cooder's score endures. His affection for the material is obvious. Bill Bryson's bass, Art Bouterese's dulcimer, Lindley on a variety of strings, and Keltner on drums; the ensemble is in enthralling mode. The monologue spoken by Harry Carey Jnr. is beautifully integrated between instrumentals(serving to give added 'integrity'much as Harry Dean Stanton's confession to Kinsky in 'Paris'functions). These pieces may summon images from the film, but stand self-sufficiently in their power to evoke post Civil war sentiments, rivalries and diappointments.

4-0 out of 5 stars Music From The Wildwood
This is one great album.Ry Cooder's original compositions have the texture of finely tooled saddle leather (`Leaving Missouri' and `Seneca Square Dance' are awesome), but its the renditions of the antique ballads and rally tunes from the Civil War era that really steal the show here, particularly `I'm A Good Old Rebel,' `Jesse James,' and `Wildwood Boys (not sure if that's original, but James Keach gives a wonderful, broken whiskey glass rendition that might've drifted around Jesse's campfire had he sung it himself).'There's a nice bit of spoken word from the late lamented Harry Carey Jr., and the final arrangement of `Jesse James' is a real kicker.Most of this stuff sounds like its done with the original instruments - kudos to Ry Cooder for having the appreciation to dig deep and blow the dust of some of the best music to be revitalized in the past decade (also see `The Buena Vista Social Club').This is a man who loves and understands music and the rich history behind it. One reviewer pointed out that `Jack of Diamonds' is missing, though it was in the film.True - that's a great track.I don't know why it wasn't included or where you could track down that recording (if it exists), but the song is called `Rye Whiskey' and I know there's a Tex Ritter CD that has it and it sounds pretty good.

5-0 out of 5 stars US Excellence (English perspective)
Brilliant stuff from musicians at the height of their powers. It speaks volumes for your history. Poignant, moving and a pleasure to listen to. Mr Cooder and Co. are masters of their craft. ... Read more

Editorial Review

You really can't have a supergroup without superstars, but the Yayhoos are pretty close to the real thing--at least in the roots-rock world, where guitarists Dan Baird and Eric "Roscoe" Ambel are noted heavyweights. Baird, the former Georgia Satellites frontman, takes the lead vocal on half a dozen tracks, including "Oh! Chicago," which previously appeared on the Bloodshot Records fifth anniversary compilation Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Fear not the mojo
These guys are so good. There isn't a bad track on this disc. The singer of the Georgia Sats, the brilliant production and guitar work of Eric Ambel ( ex Delords, present lead on Steve Earle ). Run don't walk and dig the vibe. They cover "Dancing Queen" better than Abba.

5-0 out of 5 stars It keeps getting better !
This is an album that keeps getting better by the years, I tell you. The first times I listened to Fear Not the Obvious the stand out tracks were What Are We Waiting For & Oh! Chicago. And the rest of the songs were pretty ok. Not more.
5-0 out of 5 stars ROCKIN!!!
Without a doubt this is, hands down one of the best discs you will ever purchase, being a long time fan of Eric(Roscoe) Amble from the days of the "Laughing Gnomes" to the the "Del Lords" and "Bottle Rockets" you can only expect a quality product,addDan Baird you gotta a winner , this disc kicks from start to finish!! Like one of the other reviewers mentioned, this is one of these great bands that you feel very maternal towards, glad to know that they have not become an item for the masses!! buy it, buy a bottle and enjoy!! viva Yayhoos!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Underrated
When this came out, they expected another Bring the Family album. That was an John Hiatt album, this is more of a group album. John Hiatt, Ry Cooder, Nick Lowe, and Jim Keltner are amazing musicians and it really shows on this album. I describe this as a fun blues record. Hiatt's singing is top notch, Ry Cooder brings in a deep blues track with The Action and Nick Lowe sings Take Another Look and Fool Who Knows like with a mixture of blues and The Attractions. The two songs they all sing together are cool mixture. I like all the tracks on this album alot. Highly Recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable collaboration between four great professionals
"Little Village", the one-time supergroup consisting of guitarists John Hiatt and Ry Cooder, bassist Nick Lowe and drummer Jim Keltner, took their name from the song "Little Village" by Rice Miller (Sonny Boy Williamson II), whose 1950s studio bickering with producer Leonard Chess can be heard during the closing number, "Don't Bug Me When I'm Working".
5-0 out of 5 stars Rock & Roll Masters
Fantastic recording by four elite musicians, Ry Cooder, Jim Keltner, Nick Lowe and John Hiatt.Like other reviewers, I am struck by the great rhythms on this record.It is funky, bluesy and very much rock & roll.As usual, Nick Lowe proves to be one of the greatest livng masters of rock & roll "style".His songs are full of hooks, memorable guitar-riffs, harmony vocals,etc.That said, everyone shines on this disc, including the not-often-mentioned Jim Keltner who is responsible for the ultra-chunky rhythms. ...

Editorial Review

Over their 30 years together, Los Lobos have established themselves among the best live bands in America--which makes it all the more surprising that they've waited so long to release their first concert album (though anthologies have included live tracks). For this recording from the venerable Fillmore in San Francisco, the Los Angeles band forsakes the greatest-hits approach in favor of a set dominated by recent material interspersed with some lesser-known earlier tunes (such as "How Much Can I Do?"). Omitting perennials such as "Will the Wolf Survive?" and their hit cover of "La Bamba," the Mexican-American band treats fans to the soulful balladry of singer David Hidalgo on "Rita" and "Tears of God," the bluesier strains of Cesar Rosas on "I Walk Alone," and the saxophone of Steve Berlin and a percolating rhythm section throughout. The music extends the Los Lobos imprint from the arty atmospherics of "Kiko and the Lavender Room" to the social conscience of "The Neighborhood" and the encore of Marvin Gaye's "What's Going On." Whether the material is in Spanish ("Maria Christina," "Maricela"), English (most of the rest), or bilingual (the flute-laced "Luz de Mi Vida"), the enraptured crowd requires no translation.

4-0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos outrocks rock bands
i have come to think of Los Lobos as a sophisticated band with a long history of intricate songs, ballads and mexican influenced folk songs. Live at the Fillmore simply rocks. It makes me wonder why this band has not been featured on radio stations across the country, why they are not celibrated by young people who are trying desperately to find a band that can rock, why groups such as U2 and 70's rock dominate the airwaves, even though this band can rock their socks off?
4-0 out of 5 stars At last, a live CD by one of the best live bands
One star deducted for what's NOT here - the incendiary version of "Mas y Mas" (with pedal-steel hero Robert Randolph) which appears on the DVD version of this concert, and the "La Bamba"/"Good Lovin'" medley, a climactic live show staple. Only the toughest marker would quibble with what IS here - but it's a shame it's not a double or triple CD set.

5-0 out of 5 stars Los Lobos Essentials
If you're in doubt whether to buy this album of delightful songs, doubt no more! I have been a long time fan and really dig these live recordings of the "Band From East LA". The simple and elegeant renditions of "Kiko" and "Saint Behind the Glass" make the entire alum worth the purchase. Don't miss this one if you're a Lobos fan at all. ... Read more

Powered by producer Jim Dickinson's sons Luther and Cody, this trio brings the hard-driving Mississippi hill-country style of blues-boogie to the jam-band generation. What's amazing is how they are able to stay true to the spirit of the blues perfected by idols (and neighbors) such as Junior Kimbrough and R.L. Burnside while advancing the style in fresh and thrilling ways. Read more

I love Shannon...and I was at this show, didn't know it was going to be a disc.I'll have to buy it now.

5-0 out of 5 stars A live disc worth the wait
If you have ever had the good fortune of seeing Shannon Live you will appreciate this disc. It captures the essence of her show depending on which group of musicians are backing her. Shannons version of the NRPS song Last Lonely Eagle must make Marmaduke Dawson proud. Down and Dirty has always been a favorite of mine and the live treatment is wonderful. As good as this is, seeing her life is a wonderful experience. Her charm along with her wondeful voice make for a great time. My entire family goes to see Shannon when ever she plays on Long Island or NYC( when they allow kids ).

5-0 out of 5 stars Time Warp Cocktail Hour
Don't dismiss this collection as a goof on easy listening or lounge music--it's carefully and creatively arranged, with moods that range from sultry to sunny. The musicians are obviously expert, but just as obviously, really digging what they are putting together. Truly a great addition to anyone's collection, especially when you have a nicely frosted martini glass in hand.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just what I was looking for.
Exceptional. Mr Vaughn takes an old genre, and makes it young, fresh, and new again, without losing any ofthe lunacy that makes lounge music so much fun!

5-0 out of 5 stars modern exotica
Guitarist and composer Ben Vaughn has obviously listened long and hard to early-'60s exotica, TV themes, spy films, spaghetti Westerns, and cocktail music. His Designs in Music -- a highly arranged, richly textured collection of original instrumentals -- manages to pay tribute to guitarists Hank Marvin, Duane Eddy, and Vinnie Bell, and composers Martin Denny and Ennio Morricone, without being utterly derivative. Hearing the peppy themes and doo-ahh vocals, one might be tempted to write off Vaughn's music as kitsch. But a careful listening reveals a depth in the orchestration and writing that's totally AWOL in modern pop. Vaughn's guitar palette runs the gamut from spanky, tremolo-drenched lines to moody jazz-noir, and his vintage tones are always cleverly framed by various combinations of strings, brass, reeds, old-school analog synth and combo organ, harp, percussion, pedal steel, and wordless singing. Going on a road trip? These quirky sounds will make a perfect soundtrack. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A lost masterpiece
Like the reviewers below, I consider this to be a masterpiece. When it came out in 1992, I rated it the best album of its year (not the best Americana, or the best singer-songwriter, or the best in a specific category - it simply rated as the best album in any category of music that I heard that year - and I listen to lots).
5-0 out of 5 stars A stunning album
I already know the world is completely mad, so it comes as absolutely no surprise that not one person appears to have ever heard this excellent album (apologies to both reviewers who obviously have heard and thoroughly enjoyed the object of this review). Granted, T-Bone does not have the voice of a siren (thank God) but it's hardly neccessary with these songs as they are all about sharp insight and thoughtful observation, delivered with feeling and wit. The music itself on each and every song is oustanding, the musicianship impeccable and apart from encouraging you to taste and enjoy this for yourself, I can only say that I will be buying the very next T-Bone steak that gets released. Rumour has it that there is a new album in the pipeline.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favorites
There's nothing like this record. Buy it. If you buy it but don't like it, then you've got no taste. No way to describe it very well, though imagine if "Union Station" tried their hand at punk rock themes and pulled it off blazingly well.

5-0 out of 5 stars A new favorite
I first noticed Patti Scialfa's fabulous, but unique, voice during Springsteen's The Rising tour.Recently, I finally bought this album.It became an instant favorite and is seldom out of my CD player. I then bought Rumble Doll and would be hard pressed to say which is my favorite of the two.Don't expect it to sound anything like a Springsteen album.Her music is absolutely unique and independent of him.In fact, I think her light is being hidden under his bushel.Her lyrics are powerful (a lot about sin and redemption), the sounds are varied and her voice is incredible.Favorite songs on 23rd Street are "23rd Street Lullaby," "City Boys," "Rose".My absolute favorite is "Young in the City."

5-0 out of 5 stars GIVIN' IT UP!
Betwixt playing harmonica on early 60's Bruce Channel classic HEY BABY, giving John Lennon a lesson or two on said instrument, having his compositions covered by everyone from Emmylou Harris (TWO MORE BOTTLES OF WINE) to the Blues Brothers (B-MOVIE BOX CAR BLUES) to Vince Gill (VICTIM OF LIFE'S CIRCUMSTANCES), scoring his own Top 40 hit GIVIN' IT UP FOR YOUR LOVE, recording for predominant blues label Alligator (and scores of others), and winning a Grammy for a duet with Bonnie Raitt, Delbert McClinton has seen it, done it, and sung it all. The Lubbock, Texas belter of all things blues, RNB, and country has deservedly been given the "Ultimate" package treatment by retro-specialist label HIP-O. Here are eighteen tasty as BAR-B-Q tracks of honky tonk sweat shouted out in the world weary rasp of a thousand smoke filled roadhouses. These meaty slabs of soul include IT AIN'T WHAT YOU EAT BUT THE WAY HOW YOU CHEW IT, THE JEALOUS KIND, LOVE RUSTLER, and patented takes on the afore mentioned hits for others. Like John Hiatt, Delbert McClinton may still not be a household name after lo' these many eons, but true relishers of raw roots music will always know where to go for a satisfying fix. RATING: FIVE HARPS
5-0 out of 5 stars Best of Delbert
If you like Texas Twang this one is for you. Great music with rockin' sound. Delberts history with other musicians thru the years is unbelievable but after you hear his music you can believe. The guy the taught John Lennon to play harmonica.Country rock at its best

I'm inclined to say that this is about as country as John gets.That wouldn't really be fair however-- it's not a country record per se, but it has that feel to it.It's just John relecting on life as usual, and getting a little melencholy, perhaps.But the songs are beautiful, and he throws that classic Hiatt humor in there on a few for good measure.Pick it up!

5-0 out of 5 stars The nostalgia
I first listened to this CD many years ago, just borrowing it from my uncle.I didn't quite know what kind of music I was into, and still trying to find what I'd like.I don't even remember any point where I started liking this CD - if I fell for it right away, or if it had to grow on me.All I remember is that at some point along the way, I was completely struck by it.The music, the lyrics, the voice (which I *do* remember being slightly annoyed by at first..), it all just worked.Sometimes, listening to it, I'd just get completely caught up in it, and it would be amazing.Occasionally, I'd even get all misty eyed at a song or two, the empathy was so strong.
4-0 out of 5 stars An underappreciated gem
This 1995 album is not one of John Hiatt's best-known releases, perhaps, but it is a really fine record, one of his most rewarding and one which continues to grow on me.

5-0 out of 5 stars Just buy this CD if you like good music.
I have all Van Morrison's records from the era when LP's were king. I have this CD in my auto and it has not been out for over a week. The songs get better each time I hear them. This is just plain great music. I hate to say it but they have made the original versions lose something. Buy this if you love good American music.

5-0 out of 5 stars Well Done!
My local record store was having a buy 3 get 4 sale on CDs this week. I've been anxiously awaiting the release of Ray Charles' "Genius Loves Company" so I made a trip to get that CD (which I love, by the way). One of the other purchases to get to my "buy 3" was "Vanthology." It has been on my 'get' list for several months, but not one needing a special trip -- at least I thought it didn't.
4-0 out of 5 stars Why didn't anyone do this before?
This is a natural. It's great to hear soulful singers reinterpret these classic Van tunes, and emphasize the blues/soul/gospel influences inherent to Van's music.Many of these artists are getting on in years (as are many of Van's fans!)and rarely top Van's own versions,but they convey a real feeling for the form. Many of us have been disappointed by less than stellar "tribute" albums ("Blues on Blonde" comes to mind)but I think any Van fan would respond to this.A solid, diverse collection: great songs, great singing. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars His best, most coherent album by far
No pink houses and walls crumblin' down here. Mellencamp and band kick the volume to 11 and keep it there for the duration of this barnstorming, sonic blast of heaviness that never lets up. "Love and Happiness" might be the most underrated song by an American artist of his stature. "Get A Leg Up" should have been his biggest hit. A few others show the urgency and confidence of a guy at the top of his game. Simply put, a remastered version of this album is high time for a rediscovery of an amazing set of songs that dig real deep.

5-0 out of 5 stars Mellencamp Returns To His Rock Roots Here
With WHENEVER WE WANTED, John Mellencamp drops the "Cougar" altogether and returns to his rock style and party-oriented lyrics from his early days, while continuing his deeper lyrical concerns. The remastering on this CD adds depth and definition to every single song, and the bonus cuts are quite interesting. Any serious Mellencamp fan must own this one.

5-0 out of 5 stars Hard Rockin' In the U.S.A.
This recording smokes in its new found glory via a new remastering. You will absolutely love the way the drums of Kenny Aronoff march in lockstep with the driving bass of Toby Myers. The icing on the cake is the cutting sounds of David Grissom on lead guitar and the rhythm chukka-chukka of Mike Wanchic. This is a great album to put in the CD deck of your auto and CRANK from start to finish. Mr Mellencamp has never been better. This album is an outright steal at the price I paid for it-$9.98! The perfect album to blow off steam. 10 stars is still too little.

3-0 out of 5 stars Who knew?
I bought this out of simple curiosity, as i have been a long time fan of Gammons since I was a kid going back to his days at Sports Illustrated in the 80's.I am shocked - Shocked! - at home good this disc is. "Cinderella Superstar" with Juliana Hatfield is great and the Zevon cover to kick off the record was a fine choice.I was dissapointed he fudged the lyrics on "Death Or Glory", as"He who sings punk later goes to church" doesn't quite capture the moment quite like the Strummer original. Anyhow, here's hoping Gammons' recovery goes well so he can belt these out live.

4-0 out of 5 stars A pleasant surprise from a talented sportswriter...
I ordered this because I'm a huge fan of Peter Gammons, the sportswriter.Now, I am a fan of Peter Gammons, aging rocker.

Editorial Review

Give the Carter Family a case of Budweiser and burning backbeat steeped in punk and roots rock and they might sound like the Knitters, a one-off (or so we thought), all-star outfit of old-time country attributions named in honor of fifties' folkies The Weavers. They're back, 20 years after the classic debut Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Knitters a needle short
I agree with Tinhorn - this is a disappointing effort.After the first CD, definitely a step down....not a total loss, but rather lifeless.

4-0 out of 5 stars How wonderful to see them back!!
Suffice to say, Poor Little Critter in the Road is one of the best albums of ALL TIME, and so I am excited to see the Knitters back.I heard a great interview with Dave Alvin on NPR, and it is always a joy to hear an interview with a wizened musician who is so real and makes it clear that he would be a joy to buy a drink for.I get the same impression of every member of the Knitters: they're not "down-home," for that is a bastardized term that has come to mean someone who likes to appear sincere and natural, but truly has nothing down-home about him or her.No doubt that the 3 ex-X members would make the drinking session a memorable one, but by no means boring.
5-0 out of 5 stars Old-timey Punk
For X fans, this CD would be worth buying just to hear John Doe and Exene make their distinctive almost-harmonies together again -- it was for me, at any rate. But this is a terrific set on its own, one for blasting on the car radio, music that makes the case that the great American originals who started country music had a lot of punk in their attitudes. A big bonus is "Born to be Wild," which is simultaneously a sendup of this dopey hippy anthem and one of the best versions of the song I've ever heard. ... Read more

Editorial Review

As a teenager Dave Alvin frequented legendary L.A. blues clubs like the Ashgrove, where he soaked up the licks and the spirit of T-Bone Walker and Big Joe Turner. Alvin's first collection of new songs in six years repays these debts with the meanest electric blues he's ever played--and some of his most vivid, and most elegantly arranged, character studies. "Out of Control" nails the seediest of L.A. night-crawlers, the autobiographical "Nine Volt Heart" reveals the wonder of growing up with soul-era radio, and "Everett Ruess," the story of a desert drifter who happily disappears forever, questions how much we'll ever understand the human heart. Song for song, Ashgrove is Alvin's best record since Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars An outstanding guitarist
I had the first Blasters album on LP and loved it but I never kept up with the group or Dave Alvin until recently.I've bought all the Blasters and a few of Dave's CDs and, of the solo recordings, this is my favorite.Alvin doesn't have a great voice but it's a voice appropriate to the music.In this particular recording, the voice is deeper and better than usual and the guitar-playing is outstanding.
5-0 out of 5 stars AshgroveIs The Real Thing
In a music world gone astray with false musicians and American Idols, it is comforting to know that the real thing exists. Dave Alvin is the real thing.Mr. Alvin inhabits the exclusive group of gifted American singer-songwriter guitarists, which include the likes of Springsteen, Dylan, and Cash, who tell stories about this big country and its ordinary folks in songs the radio mostly seems to miss.
5-0 out of 5 stars ashgrove
One of the best recordings of the year. Each song is a great snapshot of a beautiful and emotional memory from one of our best songwriters. The back-up music and arrangements are excellent throughout. Dave and Guilty Men also put on a fantastic live performance, as recently witnessed at the Bamboo Room in Lake Worth, FL. ... Read more
