Another reviewer hit the nail on the head with his comment about the Steve Goodman Anthology: "listen, and you will have discovered an unmet friend..." I came to this album by way of Jimmy Buffett's Radio Margaritaville, which played "Santa Ana Winds" one night while I was tuned in. That song hooked me in, and I really bought this album just for that one tune. I knew about Steve Goodman from a lot of other artists who have recorded his stuff, most notably, Jimmy Buffett and David Allan Coe. (I can't believe that Amazon doesn't list J.B. in their "Customers who bought titles by Steve Goodman also bought titles by these artists" section!!!) I won't go through a song-by-song exposition, JUST BUY THIS ALBUM.
P.S. Another artist you should check out is Mike Cross, especially if you like a bluegrass twist to your humor.

I really enjoy Steve Goodman's talent as a musician and songwriter. Heard about him through Jimmy Buffett over the years. Buffett adopted many of his songs and put them on his albums. Too sad that Steve died several years ago. His gift is missed by many people. I've been wanting to acquire Santa Ana Winds for a long time now. The title cut is the only Jazz style number I think Steve did and it is excellent to say the least. The other songs are really good to....Steve is the master balladeer and storyteller.

Steve was a great storyteller and the songs are both funny and tender.
The Face on the Cutting Room Floor is sad but yet hopeful as the young lady finds herself after growing through unpleasant experiences.

All the songs tell a real story but the tile track is for all who have experienced both love and the pain of a breakup.
The melody is haunting while the lyrics share the pain and coping of someone just trying to survive.

A great album!

Hard to believe it's been 25 years since Steve checked out and that his legacy hasn't been better preserved. The sound quality of this CD is pathetic and needs badly to be remastered. It reminds me of listening to the AM dial on an old cheap transistor radio.
