Editorial Reviews

Joined by brother Peter and Chris Lorin Rowan signed with Asylum Records for their second outing, this time as the Rowans. Peter injects a bit more substance into the material, although it follows the same folk and country-rock leanings of its predecessor. Once again, Chris and Lorin offer a collection of sincere, tuneful, albeit slight songs, while Peter delivers three of the album's best cuts, including "Beggar in Bluejeans," "Thunder on the Mountain," and the near-classic "Midnight, Moonlight" (also released that same year as part of the great bluegrass project Old & in the Way and a few years later on his solo debut). ~ Brett Hartenbach, All Music Guide

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have CD for your collection December 20, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I 1st heard this group when they were known as Earth Opera. The group is mainly the 3 Rowan Brothers. This is by far their best work. It's a mixure of folk rock & alittle country. I've had this record since the 70's. I was lucky enough to find the CD a few years ago. The recording quality is excellent along with most of the songs. I think their best song is: Thunder on the Mountain. I highly recommend this recording. You won't be sorry.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interested, But Forgotten Contribution May 24, 2012
Format:Audio CD
After Peter Rowan's stints with Bill Monroe, Earth Opera, and Seatrain, he joined up with his brothers who, as a duo, had been getting some hype after Jerry Garcia gave them some good press. The first of their three 1970's albums is really a country-ish rock and roll band, and it captured some of Peter's most interesting songwriting, including "Beggar in Bluejeans, "Pieces on the Ground," the first studio recording of "Midnight Moonlight," and the inspired failure "Thunder on the Mountain." The Brothers broke up and reunited several times, occasionally garnering real critical attention, but they would never again sound as fresh and hungry as they do here.

Format:Audio CD
The Rowans are a talented bunch. Having plaid with David Grisman, Vasser Clements, and Bill Monroe Peter had his chops down.His brothers are no slouches either. The Rowans recently released self titled album recorded in 1974 is not imitation Eagles or Poco. It is a unique country rock sound. In fact Peter Rowan is or was a buddhist and the album adds some eastern instruments in the production flourishes. The album was not heavily promoted as Asylum records claimed not to hear a hit. It is a good album and a shame it was not heard by more people. It holds up pretty well in 2002 and was rereleased for this reason. It features Russ Kunkel on drums and Van Morrison bassist David Hayes.

5.0 out of 5 stars 3 Rowans are better than 2 June 7, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Chris, Loran and Peter team up to present a collection of superb songs that my collection would be incomplete without their inclusion. I have been listening to these guys since the early 1970's and they always entertain.
