At a time of introspective change and a pause in the touring schedule for the Grateful Dead, Bob Weir combines his talent with songwriter John Barlow to make sure "the music never stops." Previously out of print, Kingfish provides the familiar Bay Area country rock sound that personifies the "70's Dead." Finally, Kingfish can be enjoyed once again!

Surely the standout on this mid-seventies Bob Weir/Kingfish recording is the Marty Robbins gunslinger classic Big Iron. Robbins was the absolute master of the western gunfighter song. Check out El Paso, Running Gun and They're Hanging Me Tonight all from the definitive Gunfighter Ballads and Trail Songs. Give Weir credit he pulls off Big Gun with the same tongue in cheek, no holds barred, two fisted bravada, as in My Uncle. Look out I'm comming at you with both guns smokin'!!!!

The balance of the album is made up of several fine Weir compositions, Lazy Lighting and the smugglers send-up Goodbye Your Honnor are nicely done. Asia Minor is interesting and has overtones of Blues For Allah. Perhaps second only to the superlative "Ace", this is Bob's best overall effort. Maybe if we're lucky, (or should I say Weir Lucky) Rhino Records will reissue the Grateful Dead Records catalog. Boy would I love to get my heads on this one, as well as "Ace", "Garcia" and "Wake Of The Flood". Come on Rhino, what gives?

They had Bob Weir, Matthew Kelley, Robbie Hodinot (hope I spelled that right) and many, many talented musicians. I saw them in the early 80's at a small club in Syracuse, New York. To put it bluntly, they brought the house down. Half the people had not even heard of them. I had this album when it first came out, and then Trident(...).

This was a brilliant studio album, and if you have an above average stereo to play it on (the last reviewer probably didn't) you can hear all the nuisances associated with a great production.

They were one of my top bands from the mid 70's on, and to THIS day I am still addicted to this CD. It is one of my all time favorite COOL sounding CD's. Ahead of it's time. Hypnotize is pure genius. Get it, you will not be sorry.

This is a pretty good CD - you get a real distinct sound from the band - a little blues mixed with a twinge of psychedeilia and campfire harmonica. This was done the year the Dead took some time off - and Bobby put some good stuff on here. Home to Dixie is a neat song much like his later 70's stuff - wish they would break that one out.

Kingfish was a nice band. The songs on this album are easy and fun to listen to. I especially enjoyed listening to them on the Keeseville-Otisville Road.
