4.0 out of 5 stars Legendary sideman/songwriter steps out front. September 20, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Danny Flowers grew up 12 miles from me in Henderson, NC, but I've never met him. However, I heard all about those stories 'bout a "local boy done good". He got his break in Nashville with Don Williams, playing harmonica on "Don Williams Volume One" and travelling with the country legend for years, eventually penning his best known song, "Tulsa Time" which was picked up by Eric Clapton. Now, nearly thirty years after his first Nashville studio gig, he finally gets an album out. And it was worth the wait!
This CD sounds like the record E.C. should've made instead of the bizarre "Pilgrim" project. Flowers' sound is mostly rooted in blues-based roots-rock with country and folk stylings. His guitar chops are very tasty. His voice sounds at times like '70s era Clapton and Delbert McClinton (who has a cameo here). Most of the songs are raw, loose, and loud. Flowers tips his hat to Robert Johnson on the manic "Poor Bob", Duane Allman on "Sit Around The House And Cry" (with Lee Roy Parnell), and addresses the Oklahoma City bombing on the terrifying "Read On".
He does slow down the tempo on two hauntingly beautiful cuts previously covered by Emmylou Harris. John Cowan makes an appearance on several cuts with his bluesy, high lonesome back-up, as well as the inimitable Bonnie Bramlett (yes, of Delaney and Bonnie).
The only song not penned in some way by Flowers on this disc is the wonderful "To Make Somebody Happy", written by Eric Clapton for Danny.
Bottom line: if you like REAL music, get this!

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Genius !!! January 27, 2006
Format:Audio CD
I am buying this CD for the 6th time ! The 1st one I resceived as a gift from a friend who played on the album (John Cowan, former New Grass Revival lead singer & bassist). I've lent or given away the next 5 I gladly purchased and now my original is worn out. But never mind what I think about it as you only need to look at the list of players or read Eric Clapton's comments. Even though I live in Tulsa I never was crazy about "Tulsa Time" (by Clapton or Don Williams) until I heard Mr. Flower's opening cut. It's mind bogglingly delicious from Bonnie Bramlet's opening (Thank you. Bonnie!) until the last note fades. It's a rare treat for the ears of most real music lovers.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you can't see him live, the next best thing June 11, 2001

Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have been a fan of Danny Flowers before I ever knew he existed. I am a big Emmylou fan and one of my alltime favorite songs she does is "Before believing" which is on this disc. Everyone is familiar with "Tulsa time" and Danny's own version is in my humble opinion better than the more polished EC version. This album has some gems and most of the songs are quite good although album continuity may be lacking. Still a good buy and way better than the stuff your listening to on the radio. I have seen Danny live a few times and highly recommend that.

5.0 out of 5 stars Textbook Blues, A Must For All Fans August 4, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is without a doubt one of the best blues rock recordings bar none. The only thing to add to the glowing reviews above is that the back up band is as tight and on top of the beat as I've ever heard. The song that is most amazing besides the first three is Nervous - which is as much fun to listen to as anything I've heard for a long time. Danny rocks and I would love to see this band in concert or better yet at the corner blues bar.
