5.0 out of 5 stars Austin Skyline July 4, 2005
Format:Audio CD
From the first few notes of the first Jimmy Lafave song I heard, I was hooked. Some years later I am still hooked on Austin Skyline.

One Angel is a sweet and tender song that exemplifies Lafave's plaintive voice and lyrical magic. The words aren't sophisticated, but they don't have to be. Songs aren't intellectual, they are written to feel. When Lafave sings "I have only one angel babe, my one angel is you." you feel and believe.

Lafave explores beyond the tender side with Desparate Men. Great hook, great melody, very well done. Who could ask for more?

Lafave also does an excellent job of showcasing Bob Dylan's material. He always manages to breathe some new spark into Dylan tunes (not that they need it). Hiway 61 and Leopard Skin Pill Box Hat are a couple of fine examples of Lafave's take on some classic tunes that defy you to stand still.

Lafave has a unique voice and his song selection is perfect for his style and vocal work.

You can't go wrong with Jimmy Lafave. The newest album, blue nightfall has some fabulous tunes on it. But, for classic Jimmy Lafave, there is nothing like Austin Skyline.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thank you Mr. Lafave December 20, 2001
Format:Audio CD
The only thing better than listening to a
Jimmy Lafave CD is seeing him and his
band live. If you get a chance - do not
miss it. This is his first Cd and it is a pure
GEM. He has quickly became my favorite
artist. A great voice, full of emotion and
his rock n roll tunes are wonderful toe
tappers. Buy this CD and you will be a fan
for life.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes me cry -- that's a GOOD thing! July 6, 2000
By Bonny
Format:Audio CD
At Kerrville this year, a solo Kevin Welch rocked into "Kickin' Back in Amsterdam" -- a song that deserves a full band -- and suddenly this guy wearing a beret stepped out onstage and provided the fullness of an ensemble, and more. It was the highlight of my visit to Kerrville; but who WAS that guy? Turned out to be Jimmy LaFave, and since then I have purchased ALL his CD's. This one is my favorite, not ONLY for "Walk Away Renee" but for the delicious sadness of "When It Starts To Rain". Jimmy LaFave. WHAT a TREASURE! Does Dylan better than Dylan (mostly). His heart is right there in his voice, and may he share that with us for many, many years. I can't wait to hear him again live, but until that, I can make do with this CD.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't walk away from this one September 6, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is an excellent record. I lived in Austin for 17 years and never went and saw this guy. I regret that now. I heard Only One Angel on Texas Radio in Victoria, Texas and was hooked on the first listen. I bought this CD shortly thereafter. LaFave has a voice that you either love or hate. Either way, you have to admit that his bluesy vocals drip with emotion. His songwriting is impressive and the band is tight. And even though I usually dislike covers, there are several excellent ones on this record. I agree with the other reviewers that this version of Walk Away Renee is one of the better songs on the record, but almost all of the slower songs are beautifully done. I recommend this CD, especially to those who love Texas music.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the single best album I own. April 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
My musical tastes are extremely eclectic. A four-hour session with the CD player might include a taste of Sinatra, Clapton, the Plimsouls, and Andrea Bocelli. But it would always include Jimmy.
I first heard Jimmy as a rocker, leader of Jimmy Lafave and the Rave at The Hole in the Wall in Austin, TX. His first album left me disappointed. Indeed, it took awhile for the folkier side of Lafave to grow on me... but when it did, he has become my favorite artist.
If you like Dylan, you'll love Lafave, for his interpretations of some Dylan pieces are amazing. But I'm not even a big Dylan fan. Lafave intersperses some driving Texas rock & roll with ballads of extreme tenderness, his quirky voice wrapped painfully around the lyrics like a road-weary but tender parent.
I love all of his discs, but this one is the best by far. And his version of "Just Walk Away Renee" is one of the most emotion-filled songs you could imagine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lafave's best album July 4, 1999
Format:Audio CD
When you make a list of the best singer-songwriters Jimmy Lafave belongs on the it, right along with Dylan,Earle,Springsteen. Forget the garbage you hear on the radio, buy this cd. You'll never regret it.
