5.0 out of 5 stars There's more to Panama Red than meets the eye. December 27, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This is the first album done solely by Peter Rowan and what an album. For those who love his Panama Red (bet that a lot of you newcomers did not know he, not Jerry Garcia, wrote this one!) you will find a whole new world opening up. This ain't your Pappy's bluegrass...but a wild and wooly adventure that is bound to appeal to anyone who decides to take that turn off the mainstream road and explore the many changes it has gone through. I remember Mr Rowan from his days with Bill Monroe, the late great Father of Bluegrass. He was a young performer then, learning the trade of a bluegrass musician...the ultimate in teamwork music...each part is important to creating that high lonesome sound Mr Monroe was fabled for. He later branched out and did Old And In The Way with Dave Grisman and Jerry Garcia...first highlighting Panama Red a la The Acoustic Dead. Twenty years ago, he went completely solo after stints with Seatrain to create this gem. So just find a sweetheart and a fireplace. Cuddle up. Fire this CD up and listen to "Outlaw Love", "Break My Heart Again", and "Midnite Moonlite" and take a magic carpet ride to the Great Southwest. While he does sprinkle a few of his tomes that shall I say, lionize his youthful love of the cannabis plant in "Panama Red" and "Free Mexican Airforce"....they are more amusing and funny than an exhortation to shall I say...inhale. All in all this album is totally timeless, fun and romantic and a must for any free-thinker's CD library...

5.0 out of 5 stars Groovy hippiebilly-stoner country-grass July 10, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Rowan's truegrass glory days came when he was in Bill Monroe's band back in the '66 edition, and then he went all traditional along with Jerry Garcia and the boys in Muleskinner and Old & In The Way... Somewhere in between came the disasterous would-be pop crossovers with Earth Opera and the Rowans (him and his no-account brothers...) Once all the dust settled, though, this turned out to be the album that he'll be remembered for, with several of his best-beloved (and most coherent) classic tunes. Noteably, there's the ultimate stoner/smuggler/pot farmer anthem, "Free Mexican Air Force", propelled by the gorgeous Tex-Mex accordion of his pal Flaco Jimenez, as well as the heady, peyote-inspired spirituality of "Midnight Moonlight", two songs which Rowan fans will never tire of... This album also solidifies his Southwestern desert-mystic mythologizing, a schtick he kept at for years with steadily diminishing results. Here's where it all gels for Peter Rowan... If you ever wondered what the fuss was about with this fellow, try this one out.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Is What Peter Rowan is All About! January 1, 2004
Format:Audio CD
This one delivers the goods, baby! Singer, song writer, and guitarist Peter Rowan displays why his songs have shown up on so many other people's albums and why fans love him. Long ignored by "mainstream" country music but covered by so many folk and bluegrass musicians, Peter played with Jerry Garcia, mandolinist David Grisman, Herb Pederson, and Bill Monroe, just to name a few. His tunes have been covered by the New Riders of the Purple Sage and Emmylou Harris, but he is a great performer in his own right and this album plainly shows off his talents. The songs are memorable even if you never smoked dope, and the musicianship is impecable. You won't be able to listen to this CD just once. Buy and Enjoy!

4.0 out of 5 stars Free Mexican Air Force October 11, 2003
Format:Audio CD
This well written ballad is best described as a mescalin induced hallucination of drinking tequila and smuggling marijuana. Flawless for the semi-sarcastic genre that includes other style mimickers like Dan Hicks. As subtle as it is dopey, and as sardonic as it is rueful, 'Free Mexican Air Force' remains one of my favorite late century counter culture observations.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars is going a little overboard December 30, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I really enjoy this cd, but I think 5 stars may mislead a lot of people (especially if your exposure to Rowan is just Old and In the Way). Other reviews are accurate in terms of drug-hippie mexicali influence. Also should point out that that this album is partially dedicated to the "blue yodeler", Jimmie Rogers so if you are looking for some more contemporary yodeling influenced music, this has quite a bit of that, as well as some great mexican "ayeyieyie's" and so forth...two styles of singing that this reviewer can't find enough of. But buyers should be aware that the live tracks on this album are really quite bad (or that fiddle player is really out of tune). One of the tracks is Panama Red, so if you are looking for a polished version of that song, this album doesn't have it.

5.0 out of 5 stars If... then... March 11, 2011
Format:MP3 Music
If you are reading about Peter Rowan, then you're probably going to love this album.

Why are you reading about Peter Rowan? You probably got here because you like Peter Rowan, or via New Riders of the Purple Sage, or Old & In The Way, or maybe even Bill Monroe.

If you know enough about Peter Rowan to be reading reviews of his work, then you need this album if you aren't familiar with it. "Woman in Love," "Free Mexican Airforce," "Land of the Navajo," there's not a track on here that isn't a tasty morsel.

You've invested the time to read these reviews--invest the few meager dollars it will take to put this music in your ears.

You'll never think again about how much it cost.
