4.0 out of 5 stars Versatile David Lindley January 30, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've listened to David Lindley for years, enjoying his backup performances with Jackson Browne as well as solo. The depth of his instrumental work is astounding. The music is also a lot of fun. I would rank "Win This Record!" as one of his best. I put a few cuts on the end of a home recording for my sister-in-law and she likes his stuff better than her original request. I'm glad to find a resource for the CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Phenomenal instrumentalist, music from the heart February 29, 2000
Format:Audio CD
What can I say? When I was 18 (I'm now 35) I bought tickets to see Joe Walsh at the Los Angeles Forum. David Lindley opened and it was right after the release of El Rayo X. I was stunned at David's virtuoisty on lap steel, danelectro guitar, bouzouki, and all the rest. I continue to find his music extremely moving and technically without equal. Win This Record has some absolutely beautiful ballads, great folk rockers, seminal reggae covers - it's a fantastic recording, buy it! My wife and I still smile, dance, and cry every time we hear his version of Premature.

5.0 out of 5 stars David Lindley makes everybody smile. January 1, 2001
Format:Audio CD
My first experience with David Lindley was about fifteen years ago in San Diego. My cousin and I drove to Solana Beach and saw him at the Belly Up. He can, and does play almost anything. I guess "Brother John" is my favorite as well as "Tuberculucas and the Sinus Blues". I will see him again if I can ever escape Grover Beach.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let this whole thing grab you February 27, 2005
Format:Audio CD
The song "Talk To The Lawyer" sounds like it is based on reality. Getting a telephone call from someone who could be from the FBI or CIA might be a common experience for people in the public eye who think that certain things are funnier than other people would openly admit. David Lindley has a knack for opening some cans of worms that other people would avoid. Lately he has been singing about a catfood sandwich in a tribute to food in the green room in places he has toured, which I may never forget. Many musicians get excellent timing from spending so much of their real life on stage. Lindley has the comic mentality needed to keep hammering away at a joke until you expect to keep hearing it forever.

Many of these songs (Turning Point, Brother John, Premature, Rock It With I, Ram-A-Lamb-A-Man) sound like the style of Caribbean music that occasionally are good enough to become pop songs. The starting song, "Something's Got a Hold on Me," is rousing in its theme and rhythms. The last verse has a few words that you might not catch the first time. Unlike Ed Sullivan asking the Rolling Stones to muffle some words on "Let's Spend the Night Together" to avoid ruffling the feathers of those who don't want to think about what is going on when young people go out with each other, David Lindley might be distorting his normal singing style to sound like he is suffering from some unexpected agony when he gets to the line, "I lower the stone but I hurt all day." Only those who are determined to know every word of that song are likely to realize that he is singing about something that apoplectic, precious, or whatever, but (for dramatic reasons) the song makes sense best if that is the last line anyone is likely to figure out. In the chorus, enthusiasm for the euphemism *love* predominates.

5.0 out of 5 stars Classic electric Lindley February 26, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This oddly titled 2nd release from David Lindley and El Rayo-X is my favorite from this era. It includes the usual top notch covers and more than usual of his own quirky songs like the classic TALK TO THE LAWYERS, the enigmatic driving SPODIE, the short and so sweet acoustic instrumental LOOK SO GOOD (a good foreshadow of his career to come), as well as the rockin', MAKE IT ON TIME, and playful RAM-A-LAMB-A-MAN. Besides his own tunes it includes my favorite covers like TURNING POINT, BROTHER JOHN, and PREMATURE.

Throughout, the band is tight and relaxed, rockin yet restrained in a nice balance; Lindley delivers just the right notes at just the right time. The covers are done with the typical El Rayo-X roots-rock or reggaeized treatements. While this recording sounds like it's from the early 80's all the songs have aged well and I like to hear 'em regularly, especially when I want to hear Lindley's electric slide, smile and feel good!

5.0 out of 5 stars David Lindley Survives the Test of Time January 13, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Back in November on an NPR Program I heard a cut from an old David Lindley album "Win this Record" and I couldn't get the song or sound out of my head. I was first introduced to the album in the early '80s by a local rock 'n roller friend of mine. He's got a unique sound and I believe plays the "guitar-organ", whatever that is. I would describe the music as "white reggae" that is mostly upbeat. Check out track #6 where his description of the U.S. involvement in Afghanistan is uncanny, having been recorded thirty years ago. Another favorite of mine is track #4, "Brother John".

5.0 out of 5 stars MR.D at his finest! September 22, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I've been a David Lindley fan for years, There's humor , message, and just plane excellent music to be heard from Win This Record. As a musician and a lap steel player (for which I hold Mr. Lindley personally responsible) there are those times when I run low on inspiration, when it does I listen to Dave Lindley. Out of all his albums I mean CDs this one is now my favorite. It has some of his finest solos that I've heard to date.

3.0 out of 5 stars notch below
Good CD. Because there wasn't a standout track, like "Mercury Blues", this album is a notch below the first El-Rayo-X album. Still, fun music from a talented artist and band.
