Great CD.If you are any kind of Levon fan in his time with "The Band," this is a rare treat. An entire album of Levon in fantastic voice, well chosen songs and players bring vibrant classic performances. Unbelievably recorded, and remastered from the original master tapes, ot me this Levon album is on par with his previous work in "The Band," as John Fogerty's "Centerfield" is to his days with Creedence. Many of the songs are muscular and rhytmic blues romps that can make the hair on your arms and neck tingle like "I've Got a Bet With Myself," and "Get Out Your Big Roll Daddy, and the ballad "Even A Fool Would Let Go" is enough to make your heart break before the end of the first chorus. No stone was left unturned in the care taken to bring this album to CD, as they even found a B-side of a 45 to add as a bonus track and provide lovingly prepaired liner notes and artwork. This is a great CD brought back to life with the same passion that brought it to life the first time, for which I am very thankful.

_Levon Helm_ (Levon's fourth post-band solo album and second to be called _Levon Helm) was released in 1982. His first two albums (_Levon Helm & The RCO All-Stars_ and _American Son_) were pleasant mixtures of blues and rock which maintained the rootsy feel of the early Band albums. Plus, Levon's voice more than made up for the lack of strong original material.
_Levon Helm_ is a complete departure from the feel of his earlier albums. As the CD's liner note point out, this was Levon's most commercial recording to date. Unfortunatly, Levon's style does not translate well to the slick 80's production.
To make matters worse, there is not a single memorable song on this album. "Willie and the Hand Jive" is passable but it doesn't hold a candle to Eric Clapton's 1978 recording of the song. The telling "You Can't Win Them All" and "Lucrecia" are sub-par songs awash in overly slick electric guitars and echoed drum tracks.
Only one thing prevents _Levon Helm_ from being a one-star album: his voice. Even with the horrible production and lousy songs, the voice is THERE.
Overall, this is by far the weakest album to have Levon Helm's name on it. If you need your Levon fix, it is recommended that you try out _RCO All-Stars_ or _American Son_. Even better, check out the three '90s Band albums.

By far the weakest of Levon's solo albums. His vocals are still sure, but the anonymous backing and production are a far cry from the RCO All-Stars, let alone the Band. Plus the liner notes are annoying. If I have to hear Levon gripe about "The Last Waltz" again, I'll scream. What's he complaining about; his performances and interviews in the movie make him look like the coolest guy in the world! Stay with his other recordings, though.

"Summertime Blues" was the "import 45 single" from this album.

It was not included on the U.S. release vinyl lp.

It was included on the import vinyl lp.

Here's the error:

Why wasn't this put on the CD release, even as a bonus track?

I'll give anything he does 5 stars. It is not the Levon you know if you only know Dirt farmer and Electric Dirt but it's fun if you let it be.
