3.0 out of 5 stars Pleasant, but not essential, effort by a 1990's line-up, June 11, 2000
This review is from: Midnight Moonlight (Audio CD)
This 1992 CD features original member John "Marmaduke" Dawson along with a couple other guitarists and various backing musicians. This is a very different group than the legendary 1970's version. However, take it for what it is, and it's a pleasant listen. Essentially, the group reworks a few classics, and plays a few standards and originals. However, the remakes do not measure up to the originals, in this fan's opinion. (The change of lyrics in "Lonesome LA Cowboy" doesn't work for me, for example). Still, "Midnight Moonlight" is a great song, no matter who's playing it, and the bagpipes on "Sutter's Mill" are neat. The musicianship is also top notch. This is not a disappointing CD, unless you are expecting the original group. Enjoy it if you are a fan of the NRPS. But if you are not familiar with this group, try one of their early albums first.
