Biography

When the Southern singer-songwriter Jesse Winchester passed away in April 2014, a few weeks shy of his 70th birthday, he left behind a legacy of distinctively insightful, gentle, frequently humorous country/folk songs about everyday people and their lives that became hits for other performers while he painstakingly crafted new classics to share.

And like that 'work', it bounces with loving, respectful 'play'.

The result is an album every bit as strong as his debut, but with an even more unique sound without as much of a Band stamp on it.
Elliot Knapp
This is an excellent album of acoustic folk music from the early '70s by Jesse Winchester.

"Do La Lay," Winchester's ode to his first born child is my favorite on this album/CD. I say album, because I first heard the song in the early 1970s. My boyfriend at the time was a big fan of Jesse Winchester and we listened to his music constantly. After the passage of twenty-seven years, all I could remember of the song was Jesse's moving lyrics:"oh little child of love, I won't stand in your way" and his unforgettable voice in my head, but I found the CD title via his website and now can buy my own copy! Needless to say, Winchester's music has haunted me for nearly thirty years. Listen to it and you'll be smitten, too.

Jesse Winchester's eponymous 1970 debut established him as an impressive songwriting and singing talent, and was especially enjoyable due to the involvement of Robbie Robertson and Levon Helm of The Band. Two years later we get Third Down, 110 to Go, on which Winchester stretches out, no longer under the auspices of Robertson's help. The result is an album every bit as strong as his debut, but with an even more unique sound without as much of a Band stamp on it.

The album spins off with "Isn't That So," a slinky, bluesy groover. Acoustic and electric guitars blend together as Winchester catalogs his favorite parts of life in a mock dialog with god. Clocking in at 2:26, it's one of the longer songs on the album--although the songs on his debut weren't long by any means, this album features much more concise, simple arrangements that never stay too long to get old. "Dangerous Fun" is a beautiful ditty, showing off Winchester's knack for inventing compelling turns-of-phrase--it takes "nothing to pity yourself/but it's sort of dangerous fun." "Full Moon" may not rock as hard as anything from Jesse Winchester, but it might groove even harder--his voice has more of a soulful edge than before.

Especially invigorating is Winchester's almost mystical enthusiasm for the world and life in general--"North Star" is a pulsing ode to life with some gentle touches of flute. "Do It" inverts life's hardships into joy, with a great Camus reference.

One of the great singer-songwriter albums, with a much cleaner sound than on JW's debut (produced by Robbie Robertson) and a determined, against-the-odds optimism (as the title suggests). Some of the lyrics go over the edge into cute (the business about tickling the world's belly button), but not many. Jesse's voice is lovely. Note that Amazon's song list here leaves off the concluding song, All of Your Stories, which is definitely one of JW's most beautiful. And that's saying a lot.

Most Australians, ignorant of CFL football terminology, would find this title willfully obscure; from the margins(which is where Jesse likely imagined himself). Winchester's first album showed its author in mugshot sulleness, outlaw, draft dodger from the terror of Vietnam. It was almost impossible to find in Australia until the mid 70s(as were the brilliant early works of others recording in Canada;Cockburn's, 'Sunwheel',Tony Kosinec's,'Bad Girl's Songs',& Ellen McIllwaine's,'The Real'). Though not as rounded as '3rd Down', with Biloxi, Yankee Lady, The Brand New Tennessee Waltz, and the spine tingling Black Dog, it seeded songs that would be central to his performances for several decades. However, it is '3rd Down' that revealed a more content character, revelling in parenthood(Do La Lay) and less anxious and nostalgic about the sacrifices of his Southern life by choosing expatriation in Montreal. This is full bloom stuff. The foggier, rockabilly tracks, pulled from an aborted album produced by Todd Rundgren, provide textural contrast to the acoustic flavour of the rest.'Glory To the Day' is among them, and is one of the most crystalline, superb songs from a career which has issued so many gems. There are the briefest pauses, litening to a stone as it falls into a well, where Jesse himself seems to be listening for the sound. It may be overstatement to venture this as a sacred moment . But this and several such moments on this disc remain privileged for me.The 1989 compilation,from Rhino, reveals that marvellous songs issued at regular intervals over two decades. However,'3rd Down' is the most balanced session with its everso brief, seemingly banal ditties, biting into timelessness.Read more ›

I recently purchased five Jesse Winchester cds: the self-titled Jesse Winchester, Third Down, 110 To Go, The Best of, Humour Me, and Live from Mountain Stage. Having very much liked Jesse Winchester when I was younger, I eagerly awaited the reception of all 5 cds. Wow, was I surprised! After listening to all 5 cds, I found that only Third Down, 110 to Go had consistently excellent lyrics, vocals, and sound quality. The remainder of the 5 cds were flawed in one form or another and did not meet my high expectations for my cd collection. Now I'm the long-term owner of only one Jesse Winchester cd, Third Down, 110 To Go, and I can listen to Jesse Winchester at his very best. He has a beautiful voice, I very strongly recommend Third Down, 110 To Go to you.

John
