After being out of print for awhile, Rhino has finally reissued the first Kingfish album on CD. Kingfish has gone through numerous changes over the years, but this album featured both Bob Weir of the Grateful Dead and Dave Torbert of New Riders of the Purple Sage. Musically, as might be expected, it strongly resembles a cross between "Panama Red"-era NRPS and "Heaven Help The Fool"-era Bob Weir. Originally issued on vinyl on the long-defunct "Round Records" label, it was basically a Bob Weir side project-- though he left the band shortly after and they carried on for years without him. Although I have an original vinyl copy, it had actually been a long time since I'd heard this album. And I had forgotten just how great it really is. It's been a while since I have so thoroughly enjoyed revisiting an old favorite. The musicianship is top notch-- even better in fact than I remembered-- and the songs are all great too. Not a dud in the bunch. No, it's not terribly profound... no deep meaning to most of it. Bobby even covers the old Marty Robbins chestnut "Big Iron" (and he does a helluva job on it, too!). Mostly it's just nice listening, an excuse to have a good time for about 40 minutes. And a couple of the cuts became concert staples for the Dead, so you'll probably enjoy hearing the originals. Overall a great listen, and I'd highly recommend it for anyone who likes the Dead or NRPS. (On a side note, Rhino simultaneously re-released this and Bob Weir's excellent "Ace" album-- actually a Grateful Dead album in disguise-- which contains my personal favorite recorded version of "Playin' In The Band". Pick 'em both up!)

I have the original LP of this and consider it an essential piece of my massive Grateful Dead puzzle. This was when the Dead were "on a break" and Jerry's playing with everyone from his own band to Merl to Paul Kantner, Phil has a band called Too Loose to Truck which literally played bar gigs with Heinekens flowing, and Bobby's teamed up with Dave Torbert and Matt Kelly to create this smooth ensemble. Remember that at the time, nobody was really sure what a hiatus for the Dead meant, and Kingfish could have blossomed if the Dead had remained on the bricks. The "Lazy Lightning>Suppication is fluid and trippy, and the rest is NRPS quality jamming but with a strong lead guitar and harp in Matt Kelly. I love the Riders, I love the Flying Burrito Brothers, and I love this album. If you do too, check out the King Biscuit release!

Another of Bob Weir's solo projects, this one formed before his joining and continuing after his departure. A collaboration of several California's eclectic musicians joining forces in an eclectic fashion. Those who like the San Francisco sound will probably enjoy this record. Those who find the entire scene tedious should leave it be. The highlight of the record (for me, at least) would be their rendition of Marty Robbins' "Big Iron".

Again I have had this on vinyl for many years and needed it on disc! Now that Bob is on the road with Phil, I try to catch as many of their shows as I can. This just goes along with my Dead collection!

Great album with Bob doing his best country sound. Kingfish was not Bob Weir's band but he fit in and gave them the respect that they deserve.

I love this album saw Kingfish in Philadelphia in the mid 1970's go Bobby you get better with age.The songs might not reflect today's views but the songs are high energy, plus if there are any old Dead Heads out there it's always nice to go back and remember the good times.
