Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Like a modern-day Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Leftover Salmon are here to bridge the gap between hippie rock and traditional country and bluegrass. So it may help to think of The Nashville Sessions as a poor man's Will the Circle Be Unbroken, especially with Circle veterans Jeff Hanna and Randy Scruggs (who produced this record) along for the ride. Leftover invite bluegrass and newgrass heroes and jam-band buddies to contribute here, and the results are as mixed as the musical influences. Clearly, Leftover thrive on the exuberant stomps and chuckles, as on their original "Dance on Your Head" and John Hartford's "Up on the Hill Where We Do the Boogie." Both Lucinda Williams (on the Cajun-flavored romp "Lines Around Your Eyes") and Taj Mahal (on the gentle "Lovin' in My Baby's Eyes") lead the band through worthy interpretations of their own songs, while Widespread Panic's John Bell helps turn "Nobody's Fault but Mine" into a sleepy, slow-burning gem. Yet earnestness simply does not become this band, and too many cuts have a poppy sincerity (remember the Dirt Band analogy) that plays away from Salmon's strengths. --Marc Greilsamer

I saw Salmon last month for the first time without knowing anything about the band. They knocked my socks off! I bought this CD not knowing which one to buy and now it is one of my all time favorites. This CD crosses so many musical spectrums that it is almost dizzying listening to it straight through. But all the songs have one thing in common... they are all super-intense and totally jam (especially track 12). I highly recommend this CD to anyone who considers themselves a fan of music!

I have heard a lot of good things about Leftover Salmon, but have never heard any of their music until I borrowed this album from a friend. It never left my cd player until he made me give it back, and I would not do that until I had another copy for myself. While some of the tunes are not alltogether keepers, there are a several that will go into heavy rotation on your stereo. When you are listening to "Breakin' Thru" - (featuring Reese Wynans/Jerry Douglas/John Cowan) Notice the Dobro solo. Remember that Jerry Douglas is playing with a metal bar in his left hand. That is basicly like playing with one really stiff finger. The man must be an alien. That is just one of the many highlights. Also notice the slide mandolin solo on "Up On The Hill Where We Do The Boogie". If you are into Jam Bands, Bluegrass, virtuoso musicianship, or good country (not Shania) you will enjoy this album.

Leftover Salmon played second stage back in the, what, '96 or '97 HORDE tour and I remember being one of about 10 people checking them out at the Las Cruces, NM, show. They blew me away they and they continue to do so. I'm having one of those periods in life where everything is going wrong and life just is lousy. I put on this CD today and the 9-minute tune, Troubled Times, just jumped out of the speakers and spoke to me. It made a really, really bad day bearable. There's a great cover of the classic traditonal Nobody's Fault But Mine and Waylon sits in on Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way. Lots of Nashville folk join in, but beneath it all, Salmon carries the CD to new heights. I've listed to this over and over and, like Euphoria, it just gets better with time. Get it. It's great!

What a great disc. This is a real 5 star review for what should become a classic.
There is a point in many artists' careers where they get to play with their heroes. Sometimes it brings out the best in both and we're all the richer for it.
This is one of those cases. LOS brings fresh songwriting, inspired playing, and lots of heart. The greats (and the youngsters) who guest star show exactly why they are so well-regarded. Great stuff.
Call it "alternative bluegrass" or "polyethnic cajun slamgrass" if you must in order to get yourself over the fact that you are buying a country disc. This disc taught this hippie jam band fan that there really is something worth exploring in music loved by millions. Who would think that a journey that begins with Jerry Garcia would take you to a place where you're buying Waylon Jennings' CDs? But great music is great music, and this disc got me to that place.
Nashville Sessions is just plain great music. If you already love the genres this touches--and transcends--you have to buy this CD. If you love good music, then you also need to have this CD.

This is the first I have heard from Leftover Salmon, although it will not be the last. Is it bluegrass? Is it county? Is it southern rock? Call it what you want, this will be a valued new member of my CD collection and will not be my last purchase of Leftover Salmon.I very much hope they can somehow manage to reunite many if not all of the same guests on future efforts. This is a winner!

This band is amazingly talented and continues to develop. Their new cd is pretty good, but I think it's not their best to date. The cd focuses more on country music and is very fast-paced. It has some great tunes on it and they work wonderfully with the guests like Bela and Waylan Jennings. An intense cd, but I don't think it's as good as "Ask the Fish."

Easily, the most satisfying studio effort by the Salmon boys and their unique "polyethnic cajun slamgrass." And depending on what they do with their next album, may also be the last one with Q-258 on drums and Tye on bass (an unbelievable rhythm section). So many great pairings on this disc, some of which are fantastic, others are just so-so. Listen to "Midnight Blue" with Del and Ronnie McCoury (and Drew a-singin') and you will be in mandolin heaven. "Lovin..." with Taj Majal is great, check out Taj as he leads the boys through the intro. "Five Alive" with Earl and Randy Scruggs, and "Nobody's Fault But Mine" with Widespread Panic's John Bell are my two favorites. And you can never forget Bela. But...the Lucinda Williams track, and the John Cowan tracks don't do much for me. Also, while the disc is a real good listen, it lacks the true cohesion that makes a great disc, but maybe that was the point ...to show the band's range while performing with legends of bluegrass and country. Still, to get a feeling for Leftover Salmon you need to see them live or check out their live album "Ask the Fish", their best album to date. But if you're looking for a studio album, this may be the one to go for.
