To some, Bob Neuwirth will forever be seen as Bob Dylan's acerbic road manager/comic accomplice, an identity immortalized in D.A. Pennebaker's classic 1967 documentary Don't Look Back. In fact, Neuwirth has long been an exceptional singer-songwriter in his own, recording superior (albeit largely ignored) sets for a slew of labels, including Asylum and Gold Castle. This seat- of-his-pants 1996 set finds the weathered troubadour mixing it up on the road with an assortment of peers and apostles. Contemporaries Billy Swan, Sandy Bull, and Patti Smith turn up on songs they co-wrote with Neuwirth, while relative youngsters Victoria Williams, Mark Olsen, and Peter Case make equally obliging contributions. Conceived as "a modern-day field trip," Neuwirth laid down these tracks during stays in Texas, New York, Southern California, and Paris. The result is a varied and vital aural postcard from a man who travels like a trouper. --Steven Stolder

Format: Audio CD
Recorded in kitchens, basements, living rooms and garages as he visited his friends, this album is something of a mixed bag, with very few bad bits. Were it a bag of mixed nuts, there would be lots of cashews and pecans, and surprisinly few peanuts. Generally fun to listen to.
Alternately beautiful, touching, corny and irreverant, when it works, it is amazing -- when it doesn't, at least it isn't annoying. It succeeds far more often than it fails.
Among the better tracks are: "Traveling Light", "I Don't Think Of Her", "Everybody's Got A Job To Do", and "Heroes".

I bought this for the song "Lucky Too" that starts "It's Christmas in Las Vegas". After seeing it on CSI I couldn't get it out of my head. Great Song, good artist.

If anybody has ever had the pleasure of knowing Neuwirth ( or not ), watched him in action, this is a real jewel in his crown which he's given us.. His personable energy comes cleanly through the selection of songs working with Elliott Murphy, Sandy Bull and others. This is real poetry. The lyrics flow as in a lucid dream. "Heroes" is a beautiful compelling tribute to the conditions of all humankind. One thing that makes this work exquisite, is the way he recorded it. Visits to friends in the Fall of 1995 and recorded in portable 2 and 8 track home studios, these unvarnished songs reflect a large part of musical history dating back to early Americana ( see Harry Smith's Anthology of American Folk Music ). Neuwirth and friends did an amazing job at putting this work together. Brilliant lyrics and delivery make for repeated listenings whether you're in your home in a noisy city like L.A. and NYC or quiet Silver City, N.M. You're in for a delightful experience here.
