5.0 out of 5 stars When you need to remember to live life. April 5, 2005
Format:Audio CD
When you need to remember to live life, you listen to this album. There aren't many albums that are in constant rotation at my house, but this is one.

Let me take you back in time. It's 1994 and I am moving from my home to a big new city to pursue a dream. An awesome friend of mine, makes me a tape of various songs. It included three from the FJB, her favorite band, she was a groupie. From the beginning the music was uplifting, full of great lyrics and incredible. From Take the Time, to One World and then of course In a Daydream. I was in tears. I was starting new. Powerful stuff.

Take the Time starts off asking, Where the hell are you running to? Try and find yourself a life. Look at yourself you're just standing still. And later, Tired of people talking about what they're gonna do or what they said or should have done. It commands you to take the time to look in front of you. It's full of great harmonies, haunting vocals and goosebump producing guitars. Seriously.

In A Daydream starts off with a great, catchy, loopy guitar riff. It's a song that will propel you forward in one of those days you just dream about. Warm, sunny day in the middle of nowhere. "The sky is calling, calling out my name." "I'm already in a daydream." The music, especially the guitar and bass towards the end, is meant to achieve the musical equivalent of a fantasy. It captures it.

The bottom line is that music, for me, is meant to take me away to another place or time. This album is timeless, deserved A LOT more recognition that it got and this band was just incredible live. In fact, much better live. Thanks to my friend 11 yrs ago for introducing me to TFJB. I am in Chicago now, too bad they aren't together anymore. But their music lives on forever.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lover of "BLUES" October 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
I picked up the cassette of this at a tag sale! It is one of the BEST ever! I have been searching for more from FJB for months. Just found them (Oct 2002). It is amazing that they broke up. This is a MUST HAVE in your collection. I play it at least once a week. IN A DAYDREAM is wonderful. So is Dixie. They are all good. If you need a lift, this is the one to play. I cannot wait to get all the rest of their music.
A fan from Connecticut

5.0 out of 5 stars One of their Best April 24, 1998
Format:Audio CD
Freddy Jones Debut album set the base for one of the best bands of the 1990's. The Freddy Jones Band is one of the Best Bands ever. Their music is soothing and intoxicating. Based in Chicago, the band beautifully blends rock with a hint of country. Smash hits like In a Day Dream, The Puppet, One World, Dixie Dynamite has provided an amazing base for this group. I suggest investigating other Freddy Jones CDs such as The Freddy Jones Band, Lucid, and North Avenue Wake Up Call. If you get a chance to see this band live DO IT!! The still play clubs and small venues and it will be one of the best concerts you ever go to!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Freddy Jones Band: The best rock you can find September 27, 1999
Format:Audio CD
The Freddy Jones Band is one of the most moving listening experiences you can find in music today. A surprisingly still-unknown band that has been around for quite some time explodes with Waiting for the Night, one of their culminations of greatness. Any of their large grassroots fan following will tell you that this band has quite an impact on all who spend the time to listen to their harmony. If you like Dave Matthews, Jackopierce, Vertical Horizon, and other southern rock bands; look at The Freddy Jones Band and Pat McGee to expand your appreciation.

5.0 out of 5 stars This album is a classic! December 4, 2001
Format:Audio CD
"Waiting for the Night" is one of the greatest lesser-known albums of recent history. There are some really dynamite tunes on this album. The song that is the favorite of everyone who knows Freddy Jones is "In a Daydream." It's the kind of song that will pick you up when you are down, and keep you riding when you're feeling great.
It's really a shame that this band no longer exists. Somehow the music mainstream missed these guys, and they never really got the huge national following that they deserved.

5.0 out of 5 stars A perfect music compilation. Oustanding! Fantastic! June 26, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Before moving to Oregon, I had the pleasure of seeing the FJB numerous times throughout the midwest. It is unfortunate that the west coast is left in the dark because these guys have to be one of the best bands in years. `Waiting for the Night,' their first CD, is brilliant. An absolute classic. The only other CD that compares to it is their 1997 release, `Lucid.' Buy this CD, and go see them if they come to your town. You'll be happy you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best albums of the 90's February 22, 2014
By P. Godo
Format:Audio CD
It breaks my heart that the FJB did not make it bigger even despite some great music with some amazing hooks. Guitar work is amazing and they possess an awesome drummer. Take the Time and In a Daydream are the quintessential 90's tunes. This music blows away and is light years beyond the grunge crap of the '90's. FJB, the BoDeans, Big Head Todd, and the Samples will go down in history as the best of the 90's.
