I gave up trying to vinyl restore two of my favorite "Bloodlines" cuts, "Mother Country," and "Pirates Of Stone County Road," because of the low-volume passages and decided to buy this import.
I wasn't sorry. If you love what John Stewart vinyl added to the music of the 70s, you need this CD.
Consider the more studio-polished "Willard" cuts to be a bonus, but one of the missing two tracks (Great White Cathedrals) was another of my favorites. If you missed the info, "Willard -2" means it's missing two "Willard" tracks.
Nonetheless, California Bloodlines, lying atop the velvet silence of digital audio is a real treat to these aging ears, and was a CD worth both the money, and the short wait for it to arrive.
"Lonesome Picker" is my favorite song about music, although it's about a whole lot more, as well. In the final line, Stewart writes that "I hope that some lonesome picker will find some healing in this song." I've found a lot of healing in "Lonesome Picker" and many of the other tunes here for a lot of years. I hope that you will, too.

First heard this album when it came out a very long time ago. Has a couple of John's hits and a lot more. One of the best folk-rock voices ever.Published on August 29, 2013 by jay r. leininger
This is a classic, which fortunately made it from vinyl to CD. After you listen to them a few times, I predict that the tunes "Mother Country" and "July, You're a Woman" will... Read morePublished on October 14, 2012 by Reed White
is worth checking out (to me anyway). Interesting CD. Stewart reminds me a lot of Joe South. That's a good thing. Any Farmer fan would probably enjoy this CD.Published on August 28, 2012 by Henri La Plume
