5.0 out of 5 stars Possibly Greg Brown's Best February 21, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is a marvelous album! Everyone agrees Greg's deep DEEP voice is amazing to listen to, and his performances are humorous, poignant, and honest, but the writing on "Canned Goods" is absolutely the best thing he has ever done (IMHO). It is so lovely and nostalgic and funny and sad that I cry every time I listen to it (which is why I can't play this album in public). And the comic bite of "Just by Myself," and "I Don't Want to Have a Nice Day" is like the best Mexican food, sharp, spicy, and just delicious. I am a huge fan of Mr. Brown, have many of his CDs, and for my money this is the best one (yet). If you've never heard this brilliant folk singer songwriter, buy this album, and if you are a fan and don't know this one, lucky you for what's in store.

5.0 out of 5 stars Master Folk Singer/Storyteller March 7, 2000
By "nepos"
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a folk song gem. The songs are a wonderful combination of humor and haunting recollections of growing up in the midwest. Greg Brown does not take himself too seriously, and in doing so, says a lot. My favorite song is the one about fishing on the Laughing River "way, way, way up in Michigan."

5.0 out of 5 stars A Warm Summer Rain April 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
His voice is like the rumbling of a thunderstorm as it sweeps over the prarie miles away. His lyrics are as simple and as true as an ancient mid-western farmer. His guitar playing makes you feel like you are sitting on a front porch during a warm summer rain. For anyone who enjoys folk, rock, or just some down-home strummin and a pickin, "The Live One" is a must-buy CD. His lyrics are at times playful, at others powerful, and always beautiful. His masterful guitar playing and stomach rattling voice all come together to create an "every-song-is-great" CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Warm, personal, and real September 4, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I picked up Greg Brown's "The Live One" after seeing him here in Logan, UT. Greg is one of the few artists able to sell out this town, and after hearing this CD you'll know why. Greg really connects with his audience in an exceptionally deep way. Every time I hear "Canned Goods," I end up writing my own granma. Truly special.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greg Brown is a master storyteller. May 19, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Greg Brown is at his best in live performance. He is funny and engaging and his ability to spin a yarn is unparalleled. Just as good as his songs are the brief interludes in between. Just By Myself is hilarious. Canned Goods is both a touching and humorous account of his holiday trips to Grandma's house. An epic song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Greg Brown has gotten me back to folk music September 19, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I echo the previous review. Loved Happy By Myself and Canned Goods (the funny ones). But, Greg is also great with heavier ballads (Billy from the Hills and 52 Vincent). Give him a try.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic folk sound August 1, 2001
By shel99
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Listening to this album, I get the feel of being in an intimate little midwestern coffeehouse - the next best thing to actually being at the concert. Greg Brown's lyrics are nostalgic (Canned Goods, Laughing River), funny (I Don't Want to Have a Nice Day, Just By Myself), and personal (Spring Wind, You Drive Me Crazy). The cover of Van Morrison's Moondance on the last track is fantastic. I love Greg Brown's deep bass voice, and his talented guitar playing. If you're a folk fan, definitely buy this album.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looking For The Heartland May 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Greg Brown is a particular kind of folk singer who before I listened to his "Greg Brown Live" album I had not really paid attention to since the days of my early youth when I listened intently to Woody Guthrie whose songs were seemingly forged from the very heart of Americana. As a child of the urban folk revival of the 1960's I got caught up more in the overt political message songs provided by the likes of Bob Dylan or Phil Ochs. Greg has come out of the heartland of America like Woody in a fury to write and sing his tales of love, remembrance, tragedy, desperation and, on occasion, just pure whimsy.

Those songs evoke, under more modern conditions to be sure, the days gone by when the community spirit of small town life meant something. A strong bass voice grainy with the trials and tribulations of life lend authenticity to his words, as does strong guitar playing when necessary. Needless to say the variety of topics covered in his songs speak for themselves from Grandma's food cellars to vanishing Iowa family farms to sweaty nights of lovemaking entwined with the up and down battles of love and, of course, the ubiquitous bouts of fishing.

Outstanding here are "Billy From The Hills" attribute to his father, "Boomtown" a quasi-political song about turning the American Mountain West into the same kind of upscale tourist trap/strip mall as we find on the coasts and the inevitable paean to love's twists and turns in "You Drive Me Crazy". I want to pay special attention to 1952 Vincent Black Lightning the semi-tragic story of outlaw motorcycle love. I would argue that this is one of the great modern love songs. If you grew up in the 1950's and early 1960's you are familiar with this theme in the pop music genre.
