Well, Folks, Jack does it again. I've been waiting for the "to the sea" live album but instead JJ hit us with a best of kokua festival. If you are going to buy this album, i'm going to go ahead and assume you are a jack fan dating back to brushfire fairytales, so all you need to know is that you won't be dissapointed. It's especially cool how he transitions the songs on the album to make it seem that you are at a live show. The songs on the album flow very well together and the collaborations are insane: Jack and Jackson Browne, Jack and DMB, Jack and Taj, Jack and Paula (always good), Jack and Willie. After proofreading, I realized that I didn't give much of a review, instead I rambled how much I enjoy Jack's music. Anyway, this was an awesome album and I recommend it to any JJ fan

This is a great live CD compilation by Jack Johnson titled 'Best Of Kokua Festival'. For six years now Jack Johnson has initiated this eco-minded Kokua Music Festival with his musician friends to support schools & communities in Hawai'i on environmental matters. This CD (13 tracks) presents the best that Jack Johnson, a native of Hawai'i himself has selected over the six years of the festival : incredible live performances by Jack Johnson & his famous friends including the Marley brothers (Ziggy & Damian playing reggae), legends (Willie Nelson doing his country music & Jackson Browne doing his rock classic "Take It Easy"), John Cruz, Taj Mahal, Eddie Vedder & Ben Harper among others. Stand-outs/gems/solid tracks include "Cry, Cry, Cry" by Ziggy Marley; "A Pirate Looks At Forty" by Jack Johnson (J J, Dave Mathews & Tim Reynolds) : wonderful guitar, vocals & melody, this is my favourite track ; "Mudfootball" by J J; "Constellations" by J J; "Island Style" by John Cruz (a great duet with J J) & "Breakdown" by J J. Jack Johnson plays & sings typically as he has done in his albums but here it's live of course with the usual crowd noises but the overall quality of the sound is good. Great tracks include "Better Together" by J J, "Further On Down The Road" by Taj Mahal, "High Tide Or Low Tide" by Ben Harper (a great duet with J J), "Blue Eyes Crying In The Rain" by Willie Nelson & "I Shall Be Released" by Eddie Vedder (another great duet with J J).

On overall, you have a great live CD compilation by Jack Johnson and his friends (collaborating magnificently well) in this CD release, well executed performances of great songs by talented musicians, a highly recommended CD listening.

Jack Johnson is one of my favorite artists for a long tome now. One of the few artists I religiously buy CDs from and yes I still buy CDs. I pulled the trigger on this album because of the Damien Marley track. However, after listening to the entire album, I have a new favorite each time I listen to it. Truly a great CD. High Tide or Low Tide was a favorite for awhile, then it was Island Style, then A Pirate looks at Forty, now it is Further on Down the Road.

The CD has a great variety of artists and genres, but all have that laid back Jack Johnson vibe. It has since made me look into some of the artists I was not overly familiar with and expanded my musical horizons.

Great CD highly recommend. Thanks for a great product Jack!

A friend told me about "Constellations" and when I heard it I couldn't believe what a beautiful song- harmony, good lyrics and slack key guitar runs... I mean- come on! The rest of the songs are wonderful and this will be one you play often.

We are big fans of Jack Johnson and have several other of his CD's. This one, however, isn't nearly as enjoyable. It seems way too laid back... a little underwhelming. I think we'd enjoy more Jack and less "friends".

Bought during a Gold Box offer, I didn't have a clue as to what to expect except that Jack Johnson usually delivers. Both my Wife and I were surprised at the caliber of music compiled on this disc. My main disappointment was that it ended. I would have been happy with another disc or two, even a DVD of either highlights or the whole show.

The music starts out quiet and subtle, getting stronger and more "attention getting" as it moves along. Each tune brings a new guest artist to the mix, getting better and better as it progresses. When it was over I had two reactions. One was to go to the Music Festival in the future, the other was to start it over again to hear whether it really was as good as I'd thought first time through. Albums usually get better with subsequent listenings and this was no exception BUT it was fantastic initially.

I bet it was a fantastic day for everyone who was fortunate enough to be at the festival. But for those of us on the Mainland, even though this is all we get of this apparently magical musical day, we are lucky to get this snippet of paradise.

What a fun album and lots of fun to listen too but not very well recorded. Some of the artists are not on top of their game like Willie Nelson. I am a huge Willie fan but he seems like he forgets where he is and what he's playing on this record but that's what makes it fun its like being at a live show where things like that happen. Jack is a great artist and you can tell he actually likes playing for an audience.

A good buy too. You won't be sad you added this to your collection. Sammy the cat says 4 paws up...no she's not dead just asleep. You see she thinks she's a dog and she sleeps on her back when she's content and this album had her purring and feet up in the air in no time.
