There is no one, NO one, like Bruce "U. Utah" Phillips, the Great Golden Voice of the Southwest and a Rumour in his Own Time. Here is a songwriter who truly belongs in the the company of the GREATS (you know who you are, Woody, Cisco, Huddie & Bob), a singer and musician of notorious understatement and possibly the most sinister storyteller since Samuel Clemmens. Folks, if you doubt me, you'll have to listen to this, his first album of songs: "Good Though". You'll have to make up your mind and then you'll have to name me as sole heir to your life's fortunes for steering you to one of the truly immortal inspirations of your very existence. If you don't split your sides at least three (3) times while listening to "Cannonball Blues" and "Moose Turd Pie" and if your heart doesn't feel like breaking through "Queen of the Rails" or "Going Away", well then, you must have a belly of stone and a heart of brick. Do your selves a great big favor and part with the few bones this CD will cost you. Thirty years from now, when it is STILL on your personal Top Ten list, you'll thank me (and don't forget to spell my name correctly).

I first heard this album while at the U. of Iowa in 1973.At Thanksgiving that year my brother asked me what I wanted for X-mas and I told him Utah Phillips "Good Though". He said "WHO".. but he found it. Until 1999 I thought Phillips had moved on but While surfing and searching I found that Phillips was still singing and producing. I have ordered this album in CD to preserve my memories and the 33 1/3 LP that has remained in my collection and Played for over twenty years. Utah if you ever get to the Chicago area let me know

5.0 out of 5 stars Great railroad songs and humor from Utah Phillips March 29, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This folk classic has never been out of the catalog since its recording. I have it on Philo cassete but was happy to see its appearance on CD, along with the albumns All Used Up and El Capitan from the 70s on another CD. The latter contain gread love ballads including I Remember Loving You, alonge with more railroad and working class anthems.

3.0 out of 5 stars .There are better Utah Phillips albums July 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have other Utah Phillips albums and this one is just too heavy on terrible jokes and too light on songs. Fortunately I still like the sounds a steam engine makes because there's a lot of it on the record. The two versions of the Wabash Cannonball stick with me.I can take the jokes once, wince and laugh but immediately I start skipping through tracks to get to the quality in the album. It makes for a lot of skipping. The Harmonies are very nice.

I bought this album just for the "Good Though" story, but the rest if it is just fine, too. It's been around for a while, now.
