Editorial Reviews

Back in 1973, naming an album after a slogan found on condom dispenser wasn't exactly a smart commercial move but what do you expect from a band whose members met at the Second City club in Chicago? Wilderness Road's Warren Leming and Nate Herman were satirists and fixtures on the local bluegrass scene when they started the group to raise funds for the Chicago Consipiracy Trial in the aftermath of the 1968 DNC convention; after making self-titled concept album for Columbia, they signed to Warner-Reprise and made this cult classic record in 1973. Though the front cover displayed them as futuristic glam-rockers, Wilderness Road actually played a mutant hybrid of mountain music, psychedelia, rock, country and avant political satire, sort of Chicago's answer to Country Joe & the Fish and the Fugs...except they might have been funnier. For example, Sold... includes "The Gospel," a suite of songs, fake commercial and spoken word interludes pointedly parodying religious radio, while "The Authentic British Blues" is a devastating takedown of the white boy blues genre. Never before on CD, this one-of-a-kind album appears here complete with the original gatefold album art and new liner notes by Richie Unterberger. Another Real Gone find!

Wilderness Road was something of a legend in Chicago in the late 60s and early 70s. I saw them at clubs and on the Northwestern campus a few times. They were ahead of their time in mixing good musicianship with really biting parody, much of it political. All these years later I can still remember much of this album-- commercials by Ricky and the Balloons for "Mouth Jive" (spread it on and watch your body come alive!), and a routine called "The Gospel Hour," featuring a really nifty song called "What Key Does The Good Lord SIng In?" As I recall, Warren Leming was a former member of Second City, so the satire made sense, but I don't think the record company and the public knew what to make of the band. This was their high point. It's very much worthy of a listen when located-- I'm going to dig out my copy and spin it soon, and not just for reasons of nostalgia...

I love this group and this album. I have searched forever to find it on CD (to no avail) to replace my ultra-scratched vinyl (too damn many roommates and late-night dorm bashes). For all of the parody and humor in the album, each tune is musically and vocally sound. This is late 60's music at its most creative and entertaining. Buy it, turn the lights out, and listen to it front to back. It will soon be at the top of your pile.

This is a seventies band that represented the country-rock vein pretty well in relative obscurity, although they put out two lps and had some excellent musicianship on it. I very much like these guys and it's well worth purchasing.

Old favorite. Who are (were) these guys? Apparently they were hugely popular musicians at the time, but their identity was never revealed on this work. Bible hour is classic - some serious songwriting talent.
