Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Rare is the voice that is both as deep and as warm as Greg Brown's. Though the veteran troubadour boasts the most weather-beaten baritone this side of Johnny Cash, there's sunshine in the smile of his wry phrasing and a disarming playfulness in his work. This two-disc set includes recordings from six years of California's annual Kate Wolf Music Festival and, while it lacks the flow of a single performance, the easy intimacy that the Iowa bard enjoys with his audience offsets any disjointedness from track to track. The generous selection of material (more than two and a half hours) includes nine songs Brown has never recorded before. Highlights range from the sly sensuality of "The Way My Baby Calls My Name" and "Slow Food" to the social commentary of "I Want My Country Back" and the droll evocation of life's ironies in "Where Is Maria." The conviction he brings to Smokey Robinson's "You Really Got a Hold on Me" and the Beatles' "Don't Let Me Down" transforms familiar favorites into testaments of faith. --Don McLeese

5.0 out of 5 stars This is what music should sound like December 15, 2004
By D. Zook
Format:Audio CD
Greg Brown's newest release has already embedded itself into my list of one of the best Cds I've ever listened to. I just saw Greg at the Hardly Strictly Bluegrass festival in San Francisco and was left with a warm fulfilling feeling that only great music can give you. Greg Brown has a way with words and has a voice that just takes you over. The fact that this CD was recoreded at different performances dosent take away from the continuity of the album, but im my mind adds to it. You can really get a feel for Gregs deep connection with Kate Wolf and the festival. I recommend "Kate's Guitar," "Lullabye," and "Two Little Feet."

5.0 out of 5 stars It's a home run.... October 11, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I bought this two days ago and haven't stopped listening to it. The set has 9 or 10 songs that have never been recorded, like 'Slow Food', which I heard Greg sing and have been waiting for him to record it. The set is very similar to Dream Cafe, Further In & Poet Game CDs. Serious Gregheads will no doubt add this to the collection. For me the cut that makes the whole disk is "Two little feet". Wow is all I can say! There isn't anything you can drink, smoke or snort that will make you feel better than Greg's music does. Greg is a genius songwriter, and his music satisfies some deep primal need we all have to feel satisfied and fulfilled inside, even though we may not know what we are looking for. You won't be dissapointed with this CD

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding! December 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This cd is a staple in my diet of "soul food". I have had this cd for a year now and I can never play it enough. I have found a profound love for the message, meaning, and feeling of greg brown's music.

4.0 out of 5 stars I Want My Country Back, Too! December 19, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The last time that the name Greg Brown, singer/songwriter and free-wheeling homespun philosopher appeared in this space was just recently as I found myself publicly `flirting', via cyberspace of course, with his wife the also accomplished singer/songwriter Iris Dement, my 'Arkie Angel' (See my review of her "Infamous Angel" CD). It is all Greg's fault, in any case. I was `introduced' to Iris on his tribute album "Driftless" where she did a cover of "Jimmie Rodgers Going Home" (complete with yodel at the end). So to be absolutely above board and fair I find it necessary to review some of his work

Greg Brown is the kind of folk singer who before I listened to his "Greg Brown Live" album I had not really paid attention to since the days of my early youth when I listened intently to Woody Guthrie whose songs were seemingly forged from the very heart of Americana. As a child of the urban folk revival of the 1960's I got caught up more in the overt political message songs provided by the likes of Bob Dylan or Phil Ochs. Greg has come out of the heartland of America like Woody in a fury to write and sing his tales of love, remembrance, tragedy, desperation and, on occasion, just pure whimsy.

These songs evoke, under more modern conditions to be sure, the days gone by when the community spirit of small town life meant something. A strong bass voice grainy with the trials and tribulations of life lend authenticity to his words, as does strong guitar playing when necessary. Needless to say the variety of topics covered in his songs speak for themselves from Grandma's root cellars to vanishing Iowa family farms to sweaty nights of lovemaking entwined with the up and down battles of love and, of course, the ubiquitous bouts of fishing.
