||Steve Yound Revisited|
Renegade Picker/ Non Place to Fall is a must for anyone who remembers the 70's days of country rock. Young's version of Drift Away far exceeds the present Uncle Cracker attempt and equals, at least, the original Steppenwolf.
By John (Milledgeville, GA, USA)
Put this on when a friend is over and they'll stop in mid-conversation and say, "Who is that?" You can't say that about too many records.

|Love Is the Song We Sing: San Francisco Nuggets 1965-1970 CDs (2007)
Renegade Picker/No Place to Fall buy CD music As the fourth Nuggets box from Rhino, LOVE IS THE SONG WE SING: SAN FRANCISCO FRANCISCO 1965-1970 is easily the most specific and idiosyncratic yet, a set devoted to a time and a place: namely the Bay Area that sowed the seeds of the Summer of Love in 1967. Released in conjunction with that 40th anniversary, LOVE IS THE SONG WE SING is surely a time capsule, but it may not be as much interest to those who lived through it as those who pine for the glory days of free love, hippies, and psychedelia. No less of an authority than legendary rock critic Greil Marcus noted in his Interview magazine review that many of these bands are obscure to him -- and he lived through the time, in the Bay Area, so he should know. Chances are the average listener looking for a heavy dose of nostalgia will also find LOVE IS THE SONG rather overwhelming in its reliance on momentary sensations and obscurities, but that's kind of the point of all the Nuggets sets: to dig way deeper than the surface and find the best of its chosen subculture. Fans of Nuggets know this, but the odd thing is that they may not be entirely satisfied with this set either, as it deviates from the Nuggets formula in a couple of crucial ways. First, there are some genuinely huge songs by genuinely huge bands -- like Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit," Country Joe & the Fish's "I Feel Like I'm Fixing to Die Rag," Blue Cheer's "Summertime Blues," and Santana's "Evil Ways" -- a few more marquee names than normal (including the Grateful Dead, Steve Miller Band, Janis Joplin, Sly & the Family Stone, and Moby Grape), and bands are occasionally repeated, but the biggest musical difference is that this is a decided shift away from the wild, wooly guitar rock of the previous Nuggets, lacking both the raw garage and hard, swirling psychedelia that has been the hallmark of the series. Instead, LOVE IS THE SONG WE SING is firmly within the camp of the hippies, documenting their rise, their peak, and softly disguising their fall by ending the set in 1970, when the Summer of Love was still echoing strongly but just beginning to fade.
This set takes its time to get to 1967, as that legendary summer doesn't roll around until disc three, but the pace never seems leisurely, as the first two discs document how that summer came to be, beginning with Dino Valenti's "Let's Get Together" (which provides the chorus to the Youngbloods' "Get Together," the '60s standard that closes the set), then winds its way through a lot of folk-rock before tougher, bluesier, trippier sounds work their way into the mix toward the beginning of the second disc. Just like the hippies, LOVE never really abandons these folkie beginnings and that communal vibe is always present even as soul, jazz, bluegrass, blues, and avant-garde bubble toward the surface. Ultimately, it's best to view this box set as a document of the era of the hippies, a piece of pop culture anthropology that might not be perfect but there is no comparable compilation ...
|Dillard & Clark|
Fantastic Expedition/Through The Night CD (1989)
Renegade Picker/No Place to Fall CD music 2 LPs on 1 CD. The full titles are "The Fantastic Expedition Of Dillard & Clark" and "Through The Morning Through The Night".
Two rocking country classics on one CD! Dillard & Clark's FANTASTIC EXPEDITION and THROUGH THE MORNING, THROUGH THE NIGHT features all 23 hits.
The Dillard & Clark duo was Gene Clark's most artistically successful post-Byrds collaboration, and his best venture into country-rock as well. With Chris Hillman and Bernie Leadon playing behind the duo throughout the first album, in many ways it is as much an offshoot of the Flying Burrito Brothers' work as it is of the Byrds, with more of the Burritos' feel. The standard of playing and singing on both albums is extremely high, but the ten songs on The Fantastic Expedition of Dillard & Clark are more impressive, both as recordings and compositions. The ten songs from Through the Morning, Through the Night fail to match the joyous quality or the originality of their predecessors and the sound is less unified, mostly due to the presence of a third singer in the guise of Donna Washburn. The mix of rollicking bluegrass (such as "Rocky Top" which is sung by Washburn) and covers like the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" and the Everly Brothers' "So Sad" is also less successful. But combined together, these 20 songs are an essential addition to any country-rock collection and are also indispensible to fans of the Byrds or the Flying Burrito Brothers. The duo's two albums are combined on one CD, making for more than an hour of great listening. Mastered in state-of-the-art sound that still holds up years later, this is the version of the two albums to get. ~ Bruce Eder

My Own House/You Should See the Rest of the Band CD (1999)
Renegade Picker/No Place to Fall songs As of the late 1990s, guitarist and fiddler David Bromberg was in musical semi-retirement, supplementing his day job (making his living buying and selling American-made violins) with the odd club gig. But in the 1970s, he had a thriving career as both a bandleader and a sideman, having played on seminal recordings by Bob Dylan, the Eagles, and Jerry Jeff Walker, among others. This disc includes two of his early albums: first, the acoustic and largely solo My Own House, on which he plays a program that ranges from traditional Scottish and American fiddle tunes through Delta blues and songs by Hoagy Carmichael and Phil Spector. Talk about Americana. The second album included on this disc couldn't be more of a contrast: You Should See the Rest of the Band is a live recording with a large and very definitely electric band. David Bromberg the rock & roll bandleader is much more inclined toward horn-driven R&B ("Key to the Highway," "Sharon"), although he does pull out the fiddle for a high-octane romp through a medley of traditional tunes at the end of the show. His singing, while not bad, isn't really worth mentioning. What stand out are his wide-ranging tastes, his instrumental chops, and his skill as a bandleader, all of which combine to make this both a valuable piece of pop music history and a thrilling listening experience. ~ Rick Anderson
Includes liner notes by David Bromberg.

My Name Is Buddy CD (2007)
Renegade Picker/No Place to Fall album for sale With a concept that could have failed on so many levels in lesser hands, Ry Cooder stuns once again in MY NAME IS BUDDY and demonstrates why he is one of America's most adventurous musicians. His chosen material is a loose collection of animal character sketches--the titular Buddy is a cat--based on labor struggles and the lower class in Depression-era America. Think of it as Woody Guthrie meets Beatrix Potter.
While an odd construct on page for a man that jammed with Beefheart, the Stones, and the Buena Vista Social Club, MY NAME IS BUDDY flies with every track. The stellar cast of musicians includes the brothers Seeger, Van Dyke Parks, Jim Keltner, Paddy Moloney of the Chieftains, and Flaco Jimenez, and grounds the fairy tale atmosphere with musical blood and guts. The ensembles tear through early-19th-century forms (country blues, bluegrass, and old-time arrangements) with a rollicking flair.
Photographer: Susan Titelman.
Personnel: Ry Cooder (vocals, guitar, bajo sexto, banjo, mandola, keyboards); Ry Cooder (bass instrument); Buddy Red Cat (vocals, guitar); Roland White (vocals, mandolin); Julliette Cammagere, Bobby "Blanco" King, Bobby King , Juliette Commagere (vocals); Paddy Moloney (whistling, whistle, Uilleann pipe); Lefty Mouse (fiddle); Reverend Tom Toad (tambourine); Terry Evans (vocals); Mike Seeger (banjo, fiddle, harmonica); Pete Seeger (banjo); Flaco Jiménez (accordion); Jon Hassell (trumpet); Jacky Terrasson, Van Dyke Parks (piano); Joachim Cooder (keyboards, drums, percussion); Jim Keltner (drums).

|Billy Joe Shaver|
Old Five and Dimers Like Me CD (1973)
Renegade Picker/No Place to Fall CD music Originally released on Monument (32293). Includes liner notes by Tom T. Hall.
All tracks have been digitally mastered using HDCD technology.
1973 was Billy Joe Shaver's year. He exploded onto the country music scene, helping to create the "outlaw country" movement with his debut album and Waylon Jennings' contemporaneous HONKY TONK HEROES, an album full of Shaver songs. Like Guy Clark, Shaver combined simple honky-tonk motifs with thoughtful, poetic verbiage and a badass attitude. In retrospect, it's easy to see why Nashville iconoclast Kris Kristofferson was at the production helm for the gritty, groundbreaking OLD FIVE AND DIMERS.
Many of the songs here are also found on Jennings' HONKY TONK HEROES, and Shaver's unschooled voice lends them a rougher quality, but the writer's own versions are no less convincing. "Black Rose" is a then-controversial tale of interracial romance. The title tune finds Shaver looking longingly back at his youth and gently lamenting his current rough and rowdy ways. "Low Down Freedom" details the price one must pay for a life free of emotional ties. Throughout, Shaver is backed by some of the best musicians early-'70s Nashville had to offer. Along with HONKY TONK HEROES, OLD FIVE AND DIMERS stands as one of the key recordings in outlaw country.
