Jerry Reed's talents as a singer and songwriter have long been a source of wonder for me. Listen to any of his albums, including this one, and find out for yourself. His sense of humor in such
original songs as "When You're Hot, You're Hot," "Lord, Mr. Ford" and "Another Puff" are highly entertaining, and his way with a ballad can truly touch the heart.
On a personal level, being a professional musician AND a guitar
player, I have constantly been blown-away by Mr. Reed's awesome capabilities on the guitar. His instrumental compositions such as "The Claw" and the lesser-known "Lightning Rod" are terrific examples of his mastery of the instrument. In this respect, he has been a tremendous inspiration in making me a better musician. Does anyone know that he was once praised by Jazz critic Gene Lees in Downbeat Magazine? And did I mention that ole Jer is a pretty good actor, as well? Just check out his Bama McCall role in "Gator." A real natural.
But I agree with another reviewer, in that a CD Boxed Set is called for. Having once had a complete collection on vinyl, there are just too many gems missing from what is currently available on CD. And lest we forget, we all owe a great deal of thanks to the great, and sad to say, late Chet Atkins for having discovered this good ole Georgia boy.

Of all the words in the English language which can be used to sum up Jerry Reed's remarkable career, both as a musician and as an actor, perhaps these four words can best apply: "Been there, done that". These four words are most apropos, due to Jerry's longevity in the entertainment industry, which spans upwards of almost five decades. It is because of the many different musical styles displayed on "The Essential Jerry Reed" (ranging from country to swamp rock), why Mr. Reed has paved the way for many a future artist, including the likes of Creedence Clearwater Revival, Lynyrd Skynyrd, The Allman Brothers, Charlie Daniels, etc. - each a successful artist/group in their own right. Therefore, Jerry is credited with starting the swamp rock/southern rock genre, and some of the songs featured in this collection ("Amos Moses", "When You're Hot, You're Hot", "The Uptown Poker Club" and "Ko-Ko Joe") contain a healthy dose of this well-crafted style of music. The lyrical homespun humor Jerry brings to many of the songs in this rather "definitive" collection adds profound depth to the music, as is the case in such numbers as "The Uptown Poker Club" and in "She Got The Goldmine (I Got The Shaft)", where the latter selection finds Jerry once again in hot water with the same judge in a kangaroo court of law filled with mayhem and hijinks, a recipe which is also the order of the day in the up-tempo "When You're Hot, You're Hot" (poor, poor Jerry!). Jerry Reed shows that he's quite the balladeer, as he croons with an unmistakeable vocal depth and precision, found in such tender moments that are nicely supplied in the compromising "A Thing Called Love", "A Good Woman's Love" and in "Smell The Flowers" as well.Read more ›

JERRY REED-THE ESSENTIAL JERRY REED: The Alabama Wild Man was a triple threat talent in the seventies, playing hotshot session guitar for everyone from Elvis on down, scoring his own twanger smashes like the swampy tall tales AMOS MOSES and WHEN YOU'RE HOT YOU'RE HOT, and serving as Burt Reynolds' cronie in good ol' boy flicks GATOR and SMOKEY AND THE BANDIT. THE ESSENTIAL JERRY REED is exactly what the title suggests...all the witty, gritty, southern fried antics you could ever ask for. Dig into trucker fave EAST BOUND AND DOWN, the autobiographical GUITAR MAN, and the quick-pickin' instrumental THE CLAW; Reed adroitly covers all the bases. He hardly disappoints in the novelty category either...there's LORD MR. FORD, one of the wittiest "car-tunes" since Chuck Berry's NO MONEY DOWN, divorce ditty SHE GOT THE GOLDMINE (I GOT THE SHAFT), and the wheezy narrative ANOTHER PUFF, which is the SMOKE, SMOKE, SMOKE THAT CIGARETTE of its era. Make no mistake son, this is the best Jerry Reed your hard earned dollar can buy.

RATING: FOUR GUITAR PICKS

Long-deserving of a first-class compilation, it's great to see some of Jerry Reed's best material available on one CD. Long-time fans -- like me -- may quibble with the song selection. No "Alabama Wild Man"? "Talk About the Good Times"? "Give Me Back my Blues"? But, give RCA credit for coming up with some gems -- the selection of "Another Puff" alone should win somebody some brownie points in hillbilly heaven. Until more of Reed's catalog is available on CD -- and that may never happen -- this is the place to start to discover that Reed was much more than just a Burt Reynolds sidekick........

A killer songwriter, amazingly skilled guitar player, and a charismatic singer and performer, Jerry Reed is sickenly underappreciated. This is a great collection to use to acquaint yourself with this no-nonsense classic awesome musician. From the country funk of "Ko Ko Joe", and the beauty of the ballad "A Thing Called Love", to the unbeleivable acoustic guitar work on the instrumental "The Claw" or the groovy "Guitar Man", hear Jerry do it all with style and originality. This is a must have CD that will have you digging around for Jerry's LP's in old record shops (which all fully deserve to get reissued on CD!)
