Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

The live album opens with the sound of the prison's electric gates slamming open for Marshall Chapman and her band and then slamming shut behind them. The next thing we know, they're on stage, banging out a wild and woolly version of the most appropriate song for the occasion, "Jailhouse Rock." They follow it up with "Don't Want Nothing (If I Can't Have You)," which proves Chapman can write her own Elvis songs. The female prisoners respond warmly from the start, but the sparks don't really fly until Chapman jumps into "Bad Debt," her rockabilly revenge on all the freeloading boyfriends she ever had. When she describes them "stretched out on my couch, drinking all my beer, I'm paying all the bills," cheers of recognition go up from the crowd. Except for "Jailhouse Rock," Chapman wrote every song on the album, and except for a few duds ("Real Smart Man," "Beyond My Wildest Dreams"), the songs crackle with wit and energy. It's hard to imagine them ever getting more spirited performances than they did on October 29, 1993, at the Tennessee State Prison for Women. --Geoffrey Himes

Live in a prison? A woman rock and roller? This is the 1990's equivalent of Johnny Cash at Folsom. I loved the microphones in the audience, and the way the women responded not only to Marshall's songs of the trials and tribulations of dealing with less than upstanding men, but also the songs of hope and redemption like "It's Never Too Late to Have a Happy Childhood" is an amazing thing to hear.
This album came out on a now-defunct label started by Chris Blackwell and Jimmy Buffet - a duo that had the courage to be true to the artist and not the almighty dollar. That alone defines unique!

Marshall's best effort is this live concert performed in a Tennessee women's prison. From Jailhouse Rock to Goodbye Little Rock and Roller, you'll want to listen straight through. This album has excellent flow as Marshall fills the gaps between songs with entertaining dialogue. This set is highlighted by two great Rock-A-Billy tunes, Bad Debt and Bizzy Bizzy Bizzy. Buy this album, then set aside 63 minutes and 31 seconds to kick back and enjoy!

It's all good...Marshall at a women's prison. Some said "female Johnny Cash"...No, it's Marshall Chapman. Honest, real, relevant, and the best love song I've heard in years, Beyond My Wildest Dreams. Get yours today and get her new one, too.

Marshall plays a nice guitar and has written some decent songs but her singing reminds me of a weak Tanya Tucker
