5.0 out of 5 stars Electric Prunes, anyone?, August 1, 1999
This review is from: Easy Rider: Soundtrack (Audio CD)
Ahhhh, memories. Who can ever forget the countless times we all sang along with the Fraternity on "Don't Bogart Me", or cranking up the volume to hear the Panheads roar through three gears right before Steppenwolf crashes into "Born To Be Wild"? Smith's rendition of "The Weight" on the soundtrack is still easy to listen to, and Robbie and the boys should feel complemented. When Jimi rapped his way through "If Six Were Nine", we related to the hatred we inspired in all the " white collar conservatives flashing down the street.." My favorite is still the " Kyrie" from the latin mass by the Prunes. Wah-Wah pedals still rule in my rock book. Old vinyl gone, lost, stolen? Go for it again. You'll be glad you did.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Kinkster is a true American musical treasure., July 27, 1999
This review is from: Sold American (Audio CD)
Any serious renegade c & w fans: Add this one to your collection. The Kinxter at his finest, warbling in a true Texas barritone, shows us all the light with such timeless classics as " High on Jesus" and " Top Ten Commandments." Biting social invective reigns supreme with " The Ballad of Charles Whitman" and " We Reserve the Right to Refuse Service to You". These are the Texas Jewboys at their finest, a wonderfully offbeat, left of center, irreverent tentacle of country music. Long before the "pretty boy look" and "hat acts" were the norm, David Allan Coe, Commander Cody, New Riders, CDB, Kristofferson, and others scared the hell out of all the straights in Nashville. Down Texas way, we were diggin' it with Alvin Crow, Willis Allan Ramsey, Jennings, Nelson, and The Mighty Kinky Friedman! If you must have only one Jewboy selection, let this be the one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Leon remains the legendary Master of space and time, July 27, 1999
I first saw Leon Russell at the Concert for Bangla Desh at Madison Square Garden in 1971. Soon after, I relocated to Tulsa, Leon's hometown, and had the opportunity to see him record and play with the top musicians of the day. This is quintessential Leon, a must for any music buff of this era. After Benno and Mad Dogs, Leon takes it up a notch with these love songs to his friends ( Sweet Emily), and his hometown. His tributes to Dylan are some of the finest recorded, and Stranger In A Strange Land remains one of the finest R&B rockers of all time. Leon at his best!
