4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy live album by two-man band June 3, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I was loaned this by a friend, after raving about the Kaiser-Lindley "World Out of Time" Madagascar series. This is a live album by guitarist David Lindley and percussionist Hani Naser. They are the only two musicians. The songs are largely from Lindley's back catalog, including some El Rayo-X cuts. The music has an old-timey blues feel, with several songs sounding like they could have been written a century ago. Lindley's voice is a cross between Levon Helm of the Band and "O Brother, Where Art Thou". He's playing acoustic, with a fair amount of slide. My favorite track is the office-party luau "Tiki Torches at Twilight". I'm not sure I want to know what "She Took Off My Romeos" is about--sounds awfully Bobbitt-y--but it's a very catchy song. And what a compliment, to tell a woman that Hitler would have loved her "More Than Eva Braun". There's also a Warren Zevon cover, "Play It All Night Long". This CD is well worth checking out, so "let's all get normal at the luau".

5.0 out of 5 stars Deep Well August 23, 2004
Format:Audio CD
I owe Dylan heaps, and not just for helping me mature during the late 1960s. According to Robbie Robertson, Dylan accelerated The Band to full maturity too. But more musicians than I dare to count have passed through his various incarnations. And, keen to look around corners, I trailed after Doug Sahm, Norman Blake, & David Lindley, to name a few from which I've profited. Which brings me multi-instrumentalist, Lindley. Briefly, much as I like the Ex-Rayo CDs, its the first Madagascan CD, this live set & another (unlisted here) called 'Twango Bango' which are worth seeking out. This last, obtained from Lindley at a Blues Fest near Brisbane, Aust. a few years back, roars to life on track 4 with,'Coot From Tennessee' and segues through a tender reading of,'Do You want my Job', van Zandt's,'I am a Patriot," & a stunning version of the Dylan/O'Keefe,'Well,Well,Well.' At 70 minutes plus, it's a concert's worth of praiseworthy interpretations of unjustly lesser known works by some stellar artists. The musianship is stunning. Lindley's reedy tenor plaintively pitched just above his stringed things, is the perfect foil to the lush variety of skin man, Wally Ingram's superlative drumming.

4.0 out of 5 stars Keep Lookin.... March 8, 2005
Format:Audio CD
It can be a bit frustrating searching out Lindley's best stuff these days. His 80's El Rayo-X years are well represented and usually at a good deal, but for his wealth of recent "solo" material recorded first with Hani Naser and then with Wally Ingram you need to go to a show (best choice!), or surf over to his website, davidlindley.com, where the action really is. These duo (guitar and drum) formate recordings are surprisingly full sounding and wonderfully musical and entertaining. I'm glad amazon at least has a few later recordings listed as imports. They are all good. (I give this one 4 stars due to sound quality, but it is an official bootleg after all, some of it from the tapes taken from bootleggers caught I presume in the crowd.). More power to you Mr. Dave, long may you strum.....
