5.0 out of 5 stars Silly Brilliance with Amazing Dexterity June 16, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This is one of the best John Hartford albums, and I own and listen frequently to nearly all of them.
This CD is similiar in feel and range to John's earlier album Aereoplain, but more exploratory. The playing is superb, the songs are lighthearted and amusing, and it's hard to keep this CD out of your rotation for very long. From the jazzy feel of "Down" to the crowd pleasing absurdity of "Granny Woncha Smoke Some Marijuana", to the beautiful melody and lyrics of his classic "In Tall Buldings", this CD is pure gold thru and thru. It is Hartford as his most playful and talented. Everyone should own it (and all the others too)!

Format:Audio CD
This is probably my favorite John Hartford album. A friend introduced me to JH's music back in the late 70's when I was in High School and listening to typical high-school-guy stuff like Aerosmith, Zeppelin, etc. I just had begun to discover "more meaningful" stuff, like Bob Dylan, The Band, Bowie, Neil Young etc., and this album opened my mind up to worlds of music outside what I thought was "good."

There's nothing here not worth listening to over and over. The remastering to CD is lovely, sounds nearly as warm as the original Flying Fish LP. The only reason for withholding the fifth star is Flying Fish/Rounder's move to replace the brilliant "Joseph's Dream" with a take of "No End of Love" (which appears in another version on Dillard/Hartford/Dillard's "Glitter Grass from the Nashwood Hollyville Strings" album. From what I've heard, the original tape of "Joseph's Dream" was lost, damaged, or mishandled, resulting in its omission from this CD issue. Whatever the reason, fine, I guess, but track listings on the CD and elsewhere should be changed to reflect this change. I would rather have transferred my old cassette (made from the LP, btw) to digital than buy a CD version without "Joseph's Dream."

5.0 out of 5 stars great music by a great guy! January 12, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Heard John Hartford first when I lived in Houston, TX working in a weld shop. He was from St. Louis, and I was from just south of there. This was the beginning of my love of bluegrass, river and Dixieland boogie and all things John Harford. When my wife,son and I moved back from Texas, we saw John perform at Muddy Waters bar on the riverfront at Laclede's Landing in STL. He was fantastic, and when we introduced ourselves to him at the back of the room after his show, he treated us like he'd known us all our lives. We bought this album off his table, and he signed it for us, and even though we'd been casually talking for about 15 minutes, he not only remembered my wife's name (Verla), but he spelled it right without even asking! I was amazed that he even remembered who we were, much less understood what her name was phonetically. Sorry to say, I never got another chance to see him live, but this album is one of my favorites of his many, many collections. "In Tall Buildings" has always been my 'off to work' tune, even though I worked "on" them as an Ironworker as opposed to "in" them. Granny Wontcha Smoke Some Marijuana and False Hearted Tenor Waltz can't be beat.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of John Hartford's first and best May 15, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have had the LP version of this one since it was released MANY years back. Decided to pick up the CD version for the car. These old songs plus Hartford's extraordinary musical ability make for great music. Favorites: Granny Won't you Smoke Some and Don't Leave Your Records in the Sun. John Hartford always had fun making music. He is sorely missed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliantly Eccentric! March 10, 2013
Format:Audio Cassette|Verified Purchase
This is the album that followed the classics Aereo-Plain and Morning Bugle and carries on that same inspired comic genius that made John Hartford a true original. This brilliantly eccentric 1975 recording contains instrumentals such as the burning "Didn't Want to Be Forgotten," the complex "John McLaughlin," and the King Crimson-meets-banjo "Sly Feel," along with hysterical songs like the title track "Nobody Knows What You Do" and the poignant lament "Tall Buildings". On this album, John is surrounded by the finest pickers in Nashville, including Sam Bush, Benny Martin, and Buddy Emmons. I defy anyone to listen to "Nobody Knows What You Do" without smiling! 5 stars!
