Editorial Reviews

Product Description

2 cd

In their inimitable 1958 Wayne touring bus, stuffed with flea-market couches and a propane stove, Fred Eaglesmith and the Flying Squirrels have spent the last decade descending from Canada to play any venue that will have them. These two discs generously capture the fury and fun of their live gigs, despite the track fade-outs and the absence of Eaglesmith's hilarious between-song storytelling. The set includes the previously unrecorded (for good reason) novelty tunes "White Trash," "Big Hair," and "How's Ernie?" yet another car song "Benchseat Baby," but also "John Deere" and "Carmelita," rare gems that stand with the best of Eaglesmith's working-class portraits. He growls and snarls through every line, while his cohorts--including human salvage yard Washboard Hank, distortion-pedal-loving mandolinist Willie P. Bennett, and harmony vocalist and bassist Ralph Schipper (whose last show the set documents)--rock like punks on a mission. --Roy Kasten

5.0 out of 5 stars He's a pretty good guy.. with a great cd August 29, 2001
Format:Audio CD
I've seen quite a few live Fred shows, and this cd captures the band at its musical peak. Included are some very new songs, some standards, and some revived classics. The best news is that you can really hear Washboard Hank, who's been a major force in the live shows but sadly missing from the recordings. Pay close attention to Hank's excellent dobro work!
On the down side, the cd doesn't include the between-songs stories, quips, and banter that make a Fred Eaglesmith show a truly a wonderful experience.

4.0 out of 5 stars A snapshot of Fred live May 9, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is a picture of live Fred; straight, no chaser. No filler, just the music and the fun of a live Eaglesmith show. A good starter for new fans with strong samples from previous albumns, but lots of new,or previously unreleased songs. Trains, cars, guns and booze, the Fred standards are all here. The hilarious White Trash, and Big Hair, the tearful Carter and Alcohol & Pills. If you are a Fredhead buy it for the new material, if you have no other Eaglesmith buy it to experience Fred live>

4.0 out of 5 stars a good'un May 21, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Just what you probably think you don't need--yet another two-disc thematic song suite on an indie label. "Ralph's Last Show" (named for the bandmate whose green card has since expired) sounds like the worst sort of treacle in theory--songs about trains, old cars, old loves, even, so help me, one about an old dog. In reality these are beautifully observed, sometimes sweet, often hilarious songs written by a journeyman Canadian folkie whose voice has just the right amount of road- (if not world-)weariness in it. All that and an Appalachian murder ballad that sounds more authentic than anything Gillian Welch has come up with. Docked a notch only for spreading two 40 min. sets across two cds when both would've easily fit on one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Honky tonk Americana May 8, 2001
Format:Audio CD
Fred Eaglesmith's Ralph's Last Show is two cds of charged country, folk, and rockabilly. The crowd sounds like they're enjoying themselves and you will, too. Humourous cuts like White Trash share space with more serious fare like Carmelita and Alchohol & Pills. You have more sentimental songs like He's a Good Dog and I Like Trains, and it all blends well. Good voice, fine guitar, tasty madolin. Hank Williams comes up more than once, and he should. He's in good company on this cd set.
Eaglesmith and the Flying Squirrels see Ralph off in fine fashion.
