5.0 out of 5 stars Classic Rush November 27, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Wrong End of the Rainbow contains one of Tom Rush's greatest songs: Biloxi. If you are familiar with Tom Rush's work then Urge For Going, Driving Wheel, Child's Song and a good number of the songs on No Regrets rank as his best. What is missing is Biloxi. To own this CD for the only purpose of being able to hear this song makes this album precious. The other great thing about this CD is that the other stuff on it is classic and great, two superb albums in one. If you like Tom Rush and folk music, this is a must particularly when you realize that this album is out of print in the US.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tom Rush at his Best April 12, 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I was so happy to find that both of these incredible albums are now available on one disc. And it works perfectly, because the mood of each album is the same: stately, wistful, mellow; melancholy yet uplifting, gentle yet powerful, with understated, masterful instrumentation. This is Rush at his peak. His singing and phrasing and understanding of each song is remarkable. I think his covers of Colors of the Sun, These Days, Rainy Day Man, and Biloxi are not only better than the versions by the original artists - they are the DEFINITIVE versions of these songs. Riding On A Railroad is majestic. Child's Song is one of Rush's finest sad songs. Wrong End Of The Rainbow, Living In The Country, and Merrimac County are beautifully composed and played and are the best of the upbeat tunes here. Having these 2 albums on CD also allows me to skip over the three songs ( Drop Down Mama, Wild Child, & Came To See Me...) which I've always felt kind of spoiled the mood a little bit. That still leaves me 17 beautiful songs that flow together like a peaceful river - a mellow yet melancholy & majestic place that I can return to whenever the modern fast-paced, noisy world gets to be too much.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Compilation Of Tom Rush Folk Work! August 3, 2003
Format:Audio CD
It is an indication both of Tom Rush's enduring appeal as well as of the dearth of comparable contemporary artists that explains the resurgence of these two albums. Some of my favorite Rush classics which were otherwise not available on the CD format are included here, including "Wrong End Of The Rainbow", "Rainy Day Man", and of course, "Merrimack County". Given the fact that Rush has never been a terribly prolific songwriter, the fact that these three efforts are now available is something to get excited about. Most of the songs included here are quite good, and most of the cuts from the "Wrong End Of The Rainbow " album are exceptionally good to listen to again. It evokes a sense of the times in which it was recorded, a time when the counterculture was in full bloom, and the typical album addressed itself to a variety of poignant and relevant themes. This is among Tom's most earthy and straightforward efforts.
This was originally was two different albums, and the other was simply entitled "Tom Rush" album, the last two efforts he made under the Elektra label, before he moved over to the Columbia record label, who tried to package this eclectic interpreter of other peoples' songs into the next James Taylor. It didn't work. Rush was not a hit-machine like James Taylor, and couldn't keep up with the twists and turns the studio types tried to impose to make him a more bankable recording artist. Yet the songs remain for us to enjoy, especially efforts like "These Days", "Wild Child", "a haunting combination in "Child's Song" and "Old Man's Song", and of course, a lovely cover of Jimmy Buffet's "Biloxi". All in all, this is a neat collection that makes some of Tom Rush's otherwise unavailable material accessible again, and I am excited to now have all of these songs at my CD fingertips. Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Two definitive albums from the "Great Interpreter" December 30, 2004
Format:Audio CD
Tom Rush really had two careers. He started out in the early 60's doing nice covers of some great folk and country blues classic for Verve/Folkways, then Elektra. Then somewhere along the line he began discovering great music by then-unheralded songwriters, and his truly excellent covers of their songs often brought them more commercial attention than they'd had up to then. His covers of "Urge for Going" and "Circle Game" did good things for Joni Mitchell, he recorded "Something in the Way She Moves" and "Sunshine Sunshine" before James Taylor's first LP and "Shadow Dream Song" before Jackson Browne made it big. These two ablums (his first two for Columbia--he'd already left Elektra at this point) have great covers of Taylor, Browne, Jesse Colin Young, Fred Neil, and Murray McLaughlin, among others. I agree with some previous reviewers that Rush's rendition of "Biloxi" is one of the real jewels here, but let's set the record straight. It's not his song and it's not Jimmy Buffett's. The author is Jesse Winchester. If you want to hear more like it, hunt down Winchester's self-titled debut on Bearsville Records.

P.S., both of these albums have some great lead guitar work by Rush's long-time sideman Trevor Veitch.

5.0 out of 5 stars Super dee duper Tom Ruxh August 31, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I love Tom Rush and always have so to have this wonderful CD is a real treat. The strength and phrasing in the way he sings his songs is a true pleasure and the sweetness of his voice brings a laid-back quality to each and every song. There's a tenderness here that is hard to come by and is always most welcome. There are few of such quality out there. Give it a try. You'll never be disappointed as far as I can tell.
