Editorial Reviews

Cale's sophomore album from 1971 was a logical successor to his outstanding debut. Cale's laid back style was widely appreciated, as evidenced by the radio success of "Lies". This album was recorded in Nashville and at the famed Muscle Shoals Studios in Alabama. Backing musicians include Roger Hawkins, Barry Beckett, David Hood, Charlie McCoy, Norbert Putnam (who would later produce Dan Fogelberg), Vasser Clements and more.

5.0 out of 5 stars "Really" and "Naturally" are the real J.J. Cale July 11, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Everyone has their favorites, but being a J.J. Cale fan for a lot longer than I'd wish to admit (has it really been almost 30 years?) I'd say that you'd do a lot better by getting "Naturally" and "Really" than any "best of", anthology or live album. Maybe "Troubador" would round it out with "Cocaine", but you start getting away from the real meat of J.J.'s sound and into filler with the other albums.
J.J.'s music can be witty, foot-tapping ditties, or can be absolutely boring. So stick with the real winners, which are the two I mentioned.
"Really" is much better engineered than "Naturally", at least on at least half the tracks. They even hired some real studio musicians, since after "Naturally" they figured this boy might actually have some potential. The piano and bass players are fabulous, and there's solid drumming on most tracks.
J.J. Cale played an important role in the mentoring of some influential rock guitarists, as I discussed in my review of "Naturally"

5.0 out of 5 stars Best of J.J.Cale (FJB/O!-music 2006) September 19, 2005
Format:Audio CD
There are about 5 essential Cale-albums. This is the one without songs like After Midnight and Cocaine. Still it's the best one. Cale is as laid-back as always, but also funky and jazzy with a unique sound only to be heard on this album. I like the piano and of course the guitar is allright. Together with Naturally it's the best of the Cale-albums you can get.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cale's Best January 25, 2000
By John
Format:Audio CD
This is one of my 10 favorite albums and JJ Cale's best. No one can blur the distinction between country and blues like this man. His wife was quoted as saying there was nothing like sitting on the porch at their place in Tennessee, drinking a beer, and listening to him play. If I could be there, I would want to hear songs from this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Laid back and in the groove January 29, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Goin' Down was getting the radio play back when FM stations were kind of operating in the underground mode. FM used to be subversive, so the programming was anything but pop and top 40.
This is a great release, showcasing the style of J.J. as only J.J. could do it. A number of his songs have been recorded by other artists. Clapton has done two that I know of (Cocaine and Tulsa Time), Merle Haggard... I'm sure there's more. J.J. used to play at the Inn of the Beginning in Cotati California (Marin County) back in the mid-70's, I saw him there a couple of times. Very down to earth music and vastly underappreciated or virtually unknown by the mainstream masses. Pick this one up, Natually was good too. These were early releases yet they displayed a developed musician who was totally into his own thing. Not many musicians were the real deal. I think J.J. was and is the embodiment of J.J. Cale, no false pretenses here. What you see is what you get. You just gotta' love honesty, it comes out in the music.

5.0 out of 5 stars Completely classic J J Cale January 24, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Without getting too wordy about it, if you don't like this album, you just don't get J J Cale. This is his seminal stuff, done at the beginning of his career, before he slid off into the sameness of his later albums. Eric Clampton may have made a mint off of "Cocaine"--this guy wrote it.
J J Cale almost single-handedly created Okie Rock as a mixture blusey, jazz-inspired and eminently listenable electric/brass arangements that proved that Rock and Roll didn't have to be LA, New York or leave you hearing-impaired to be good. Outlaw without being criminal about it. I listened to it when it was new; and at the time, there was almost nothing like it. If the production values don't always match today's digital precision, the down-home authenticity makes up for it.
The lyrics and delivery are deceptively laid back. Songs about heartbreak, running the highways and honkey-tonks that are tight and easy on the ears without being "Easy Listening". It covered most of Country/Western's territory without the treacle; what Garth Brooks would like to be if he wasn't so bottom-line driven.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Charles Portis of rock and roll February 5, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Even when this canny and wistful troubadour from Oklahoma is accompanied by a boatload of session musicians his relaxed vagabond vibe is still the first thing that gets your attention--not even the big-band backing in the album opener Lies can drown out Cale's inimitable low-key mojo. Lovely songs these, spare but fleet of foot, sweetly sung behind electric and friendly arrangements. Smoky little snapshots from where it's really at I like to think. Catchy too, dagnabbit! That oddly crafty organ solo in Right Down Here just about kills me every time. The plinking Leon Russell-style piano groove in Ridin' Home is also dang hard to shake once you've heard JJ cook it up. The toe-tapping closer, Louisiana Women, wraps the whole shebang up in a warm Cajun glow. The longest song on this succinct and understated album is just over three minutes and a couple of numbers are hardly up and running before they start to fade but the overall impression left behind is surprisingly strong and crunchy. Same goes for Naturally, Troubadour or in fact just about any other record by this unaccountably undersung American treasure. In short, Really truly is a righteous slice of cool.

I have the original version of this cd ....not the re-mastered version and in my humble opinion this has some of the best JJ Cale songs that he ever did....Lies, Right Down Here, Soulin, Changes, Everything Will Be alright, Going Down, If You're Ever In Oklahoma...etc,. These songs are done as only JJ can do them. This is THE CD to have in your JJ collection....BUY IT won't regret it!
