Editorial Reviews

Oxford, Mississippi, has always been a literary melting pot, and thanks to these native sons (and daughters), the college town is now being recognized for its music. Blue Mountain's fourth record, coproduced by ex-Georgia Satellite Dan Baird, proves that Cary Hudson and his wife, Laurie Stirratt (twin sister of Wilco's John Stirratt) are the John and Exene of alternative country. They unite an intoxicating narrative and savvy song structure with Hudson's pungent chords, an effusing rocking style with smatterings of Skip James and Hank Williams. Akin to a well-read tour of the Deep South, Blue Mountain take you to Stax's Memphis ("My Wicked, Wicked Ways"), Skynyrd's Jacksonville ("Poppa"), and Robert Johnson's front porch ("Just Passing Through"). And then it's back to Oxford, where Blue Mountain should feel just as at home as novelist Barry Hannah. --Scott Holter

5.0 out of 5 stars Hand me some fried okra, I'm ready to go home October 15, 1999
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Used to see these guys play all the time back in Oxford, Miss., beer in my hand and standing two inches away from the amp... They still got it in this, their third album. If you like alt-country like Son Volt, Uncle Tupelo, Neil Young or Lyle Lovett, check these guys out. Great guitars, wonderful storytelling and a sense of honesty and guts that outpaces most of the calculated fluff out there these days. Have a beer for me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blue Mountain is getting better each outing December 1, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This album certainly doesn't disappoint a die-hard Blue Mountain fan. "Dog Days" and "Homegrown" are two of my favorite albums and I was very much looking forward to this new effort. I had the extreme pleasure to see the band live a few weeks back - don't miss 'em when they come around! This album gives you a taste of their passionate live performances. Cary Hudson is one fine guitar player! If you like true American roots rock & roll, you'll love this band.
Do yourself a favor and buy "Dog Days" while you're at it - it'll save you a trip.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get much better than this......... October 30, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
After the good but somewhat uneven "Homegrown", Blue Mountain return to form with a very strong outing. "Tales of a Traveler" has it all: catchy tunes, fast-paced rockers, blues-tinged songs and poignant ballads. Overall, a very focused an cohesive work. This band is one of the best out there -- do yourself a favor and check them out.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gets better with age November 6, 2003
By Train
Format:Audio CD
When I first got this disc I thought, "Its not as good as Dog Days", and I sort of pushed it to the back of my collection. Well after pulling it out again and giving it a fair amount of playing time, I discovered how much I like this Disc. Still may not be quite as good as Dog Days, but it has a more of a varity of sounds and songs than Dog Days. This is just simply a talented band, and given the chance, if you are a country rock fan, these guys will win you over. Think Neil Young, Skynyrd, Jayhawks, and Son Volt, and Blue Mountain is in that catagory. Fine company indeed

5.0 out of 5 stars Gets better each listen April 28, 2005
Format:Audio CD
I have owned this CD for several months, and after listening to it several times I have decided to share some thoughts with you. Initially I listened to it, and after a few spins placed it in my CD rack. Its OK I thought, but not near as good as Dog Days.

Recently brought it back out, had to take a 4 hour trip to Nashville. I listened to it full length twice, once getting there and once on the return. Blue Mountain reminds me of CCR sometimes, and other times Neil Young and Crazy Horse. But they are their own, Cary Hudson is the core here. This one is bottom line oustanding. Get it. The music is basic, but filled with images of American life. Wife Laurie provides some great harmony on the opening track, but each one of these tracks are interesting and full of soul, life and music. Some tracks sound similair, but they differ in approach and texture. This CD is worth the price of several. Enjoy
