5.0 out of 5 stars Lyle Lovett's doppelganger May 24, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Long before the Long Tall Texan copped big league cred as a smart, funny, courtly, intelligent singer-songwriter, Memphis' Jesse Winchester set a really high bar on rootsy Southern music. I still remember soaking up his debut album in my dorm room, and after graduation I eagerly sought each of the succeeding albums from this overlooked master. A conscientious objector who observed life from exile in Montreal, he may have missed the singer-songwriter boom of the '70s, but not for any lack in quality. This was his third album, mixing his own great songs with the first songs from Russell Smith, another neglected Southern master, who made some great, now unavailable records with the Amazing Rhythm Aces.

5.0 out of 5 stars Arguably Winchester's Best! June 20, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The genius died far too soon in April, 2014, and fans will always wish he had written and recorded more. This is arguably Winchester's best CD/LP, although it is very short even by vinyl standards. The songs are also often short, there are not a lot of solos, and he sings two Russell Smith originals, so the Winchester portion is even shorter. It is simply a really good record.

4.0 out of 5 stars Jesse's Learn to Love It January 18, 2007
Format:Audio CD
I have loved Jesse's Winchester's work for years. This is a good example of it, though many of his other albums outshine it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Jesse's best April 16, 2009
Format:Audio CD
IMHO this is Jesse Winchester's best work. I first bought it on vinyl, way back in the 70's. Every track here is a perfect gem. The arrangements do not overwhelm the intimacy of his songs as they do on his subsequent releases. This album is not dated and is as viable today as it was the day it was released; his other work does not hold up as well.
