Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Though Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie have long served as the major musical touchstones for veteran folk-rocker Jimmy LaFave, the shimmering atmospherics of this release's title track suggest a chicken-fried Van Morrison, while the reckless rock 'n' roll of "Music from the Motor Court" conjures comparisons to a renewed Jerry Lee Lewis. From the delicate balladry of "Rain Falling Down" to the Jack Kerouac homage of "Bohemian Cowboy Blues," LaFave remains an uncommonly emotive vocalist, with his tremulous tenor always on the verge of a soulful sob. But where his voice has long been more memorable than much of his original material, he establishes himself here as a songwriter of maturity, reflection, and range. The arrangements are as subtle as the musical backing is superb, putting the focus on LaFave and the way that his voice enhances his songs of all-American wanderlust. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars Subtle Grace March 15, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy Lafave has always had something special. A soft, romantic eye that anyone with a heart can recognize but most of us never fully articulate. Also, a whole lot of fun as a timeless rocker who won't be held back when it's time to let loose and play.

Everything Jimmy has done has had spirit, and an individual voice that should stand with anyone who has ever dared to reveal his true self for the sake of his art and the joy of the rest of us. What this record gives the world is that artistic spirit in full mature form. The subtlety of expression is astonishing for any one of us who has waited for Jimmy's next work. For any new listener interested in the art of simple, honest songwriting, I can't think of any stronger recommendation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Unforgettable...Pure Soul-Soothing Pleasure March 15, 2005
By Grace
Format:Audio CD
Once you've heard this album, you will not be able to get the stirring, almost hauntingly lyrical, voice of Jimmy Lafave out of your head. I once read an editor describing Jimmy as "the greatest voice you never heard." Don't keep missing out...Jimmy's ballads and incredble voice will delight your soul beyond imagining.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why haven't I heard of this guy before now? May 9, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I came across Blue Nightfall by Jimmy LaFave while drilling through Amazon's new release list of CD's. Well a listen to the sample cuts of this CD and I was hooked. BLUE NIGHTFALL is my first introduction to the singing and songwriting of Jimmy LaFave and I am hooked. At times a bit reminiscent of Steve Forbert the CD none the less grabs the listener. I see he has 7 CD's out and is featured on one compilation CD. This is just a wonderful CD. Almost every cut hits home. The opening tune Revival harkens to that dark night of the soul we all come to from time to time. I also liked River Road, the title cut Blue Nightfall, Shining On Through, and I Wish For You. My only negative comment is that even though they are great tunes, the up tempo cuts, like Music From The Motor Court and Gotta Ramble seem out of place, and not of the mood of this CD. All and all though a great CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my favorites! June 16, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I was afraid Jimmy had peaked with Texoma, but this album is fantastic. "Revival" is a great hook, and then the CD just builds from there. Great, smooth, completely groovy effort!

5.0 out of 5 stars He's At It Again April 3, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Jimmy LaFave is certainly one of my faves....and this CD continues to reinforce that concept. His vocals have always evoked a hankering for the road.

The tunes on this CD really stand out. Great lyrics, interesting melodies, solid ideas. Jimmy knows his way around a Texas road house and he proves that on each CD. This one included.

Tender....LaFave does tender very well...and he also knows how to rock the house with some raucous vocals and serious guitar riffs.

I can't say that this is his best effort because I have so many LaFave favorites...but I find myself listening to this one over and over again. Almost as much as I listen to Austin Sky Line.

5.0 out of 5 stars "the crystal blue sound" of Blue Nightfall August 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
Feeling hungry for some new music I wandered around Amazon.com until I found Jimmy LaFave - my new red dirt music god. He had me hooked from the very first song on this CD, a tune called "Revival". Jimmy's voice can caress your soul, and then turn around and shake the shoes off your feet with tunes like "Music from the Motor Court". Two months ago I had never heard of Jimmy, now I own every CD he has ever made. (Gurf Morlix plays on this CD, always a good sign!)
