While 1972's O'Keefe scored singer/songwriter Danny O'Keefe his biggest hit ever with "Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues," -- and continues to garner him royalty checks because of all the people who covered it (Elvis among them), the album is a classic in its own right.

Danny O'Keefe - O'Keefe Album Track Listing
O'Keefe buy CD music Customer Reviews
Contains the best versions of his hits, Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues and The Road. A good set of songs, nicely produced by Arif Mardin with great playing by O'Keefe and Atlantic Records studio studs including Reggie Young, Bobby Wood, Shane Keister and Bobby Emmons makes for a strong outing. Might rate five stars if not for a couple songs that haven't aged that well. Conclusion: The place to start with Danny O'Keefe.

This is Okeffes best album if you like the 70s Nashville grit. Leo Leblanc on Steel Guitar. Just do not hear instuments like this with performers anymore. Truley a classic.

I'm excited to see that this is now on CD. I lost the LP many years ago. The song "An American Dream" is a stunning anti war tune that is as pertinent today as it was in the early 70s.
