OK, I'm partial. I have been listening to Forbert since I saw him on tour in '79. The critics have never liked him very much because he isn't "McMusic", and you won't see him on MTV (except maybe in an old Cyndee Lauper video). But no other artist delivers folk like Steve- he really is a poet/troubador in the old style. This album is a fine example, one of his best (I would have given 5 stars except its not QUITE as good as others). If you are new, try the greatest hits, Alive on Arrival, or American in Me.

4.0 out of 5 stars A WELL - KEPT SECRET November 27, 2000
Format:Audio CD
In 1978, Steve Forbert was the toast of the music industry, riding the wave of his critically acclaimed debut album "Alive On Arrival," a folk - rock classic released smack in the middle of the Punk movement. 20 years later, with the release of "Rocking Horse Head," Forbert's writing and singing are still as fresh and unique; over two decades of ups, downs, and in-betweens seemingly haven't dampened his spirit or drained him of any creativity or energy.
This recording, a fine follow - up to the excellent "Mission Of The Crossroad Palms," finds Forbert looking at life, although sometimes through jaded eyes, with a sense of humor and wonder that have been present in his music from the very beginning.
"If I Want You Now" is the album's most touching and straightforward love song, picking up where "Is It Any Wonder" and "Oh, To Be Back With You," both from the previous album, left off.
"Don't Stop," an excellent song, may well be Steve's admonition to anyone who's about to throw in the proverbial towel. One gets the impression that Forbert is singing from experience. "So you're down, so it's hard. Don't Stop, don't stop," he sings. "Stop and you're denying everything that you've been trying for so long." Maybe 20 - plus years on the road, mixed with the highs and lows of life in the recording industry, have given the singer this point of view. "Dream, Dream," a simplistically beautiful ballad, conveys a similar message -"Someday soon the breaks won't bring you down; One day soon you'll wake up safe and sound.

4.0 out of 5 stars Another Winning Effort March 23, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I bought Steve's first album and have bought every one since. While Alive on Arrival is a ture classic, Steve's later albums at times are hit and miss affairs. This album is one of his best in years. A nice mix of softer ballads and uptempo rockers with his usual worderful insights. Hey, I bought it when it was origninally released and it has stayed very close to my cd player since then. If you are new to Steve's Music, Alive on Arrival is the ticket, but if you already own that I would suggest Rocking Horse Head.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Forbert "Nugget" June 9, 2000
By "nepos"
Format:Audio CD
"Rocking Horse Head" is a quirky but fine collection of tunes,that represents a departure from his previous CD, "Mission of the Crossroad Palms". "Rocking Horse" has a "home taped" feel to it, as if Steve recorded it in his basement.
The songs on this CD are full of mandolins, banjos, "fuzz" bass, squeeze boxes,violins, giving Steve's songs a different sound, like a jam session amongst friends, after hours, in a Greek Taverna.
One of Mr. Forbert's most clever and fun tunes is "Moon Man", which rocks and chugs along, and is about trying to reach out in cyberspace to connect with someone and start perhaps a relationship. It is surprising that more folksingers haven't joined Steve and polked a little fun at our world of techology, and explored how the human spirit tries to fit in.
