Such a great album album! New Riders in their prime! Incredible song writing, lead and harmony vocals. John "Marmaduke" Dawson, David Nelson, and the late, great Dave Torbert, Buddy Cage on steel, and Spencer Dryden on drums, with some special guest appearances. Some of their best work is here on this album.
I hope some day Columbia will also release Home, Home on the Road (live), Gypsy Cowboy, and Brujo.
Long associated with the Dead, these guys are so good in their own right. The musical style that is so much their own, far superior to the watered down "country-rock" that became "popular" in the 70's.
"Mescalito drenched hippie-cowboy soul" may be one way to define their "sound".
This is "goose bump" music folks, right there with Rick Nelson's "Garden Party", the Burrito's "Gilded Palace of Sin", or Gram Parson's "GP/Greivous Angel".
A must for any lover of good music with a cosmic country-fied tinge.

If I were the Original Riders of the Purple Sage I would have been proud of the New Riders carrying on the tradition. These guys were damned good, but so underrated. Powerglide is one of their best (Panama Red is my sentimental favorite)and I was surprised that after feeling that it didn't get any better than Panama Red, Powerglide had me and my whole college crew agreeing it was just as solid a set of tunes with tight performances to boot.
My kids don't know what to make of these guys. They know I do not particularly like mainstream country music, but are not surprised that I like stuff by the NRPS. These are universal good time party tunes. NRPS playing always signals a good musical trip by a bunch of guys actually more talented than some of their better known peers in their heyday.

The dynamic of all the talent from NRPS, the Dead and various guests, Buddy Guy et al. makes this the best effort from the New Riders. The songs evoke a simpler time, yet speak to subjects that are right up to date because of their universality. From cowboy rock to Ricky Nelson to Willie And The Hand Jive this album has it all. Listen to Rainbow and you hear the sound that the Nineties Country-Rock wannabes are trying to get to. This album if it was released today would be number one on the blurred rock country charts for weeks. Maybe the best country album ever. Truly a must have.

A lot of people seem 2 praise those first two NRPS albums and typically say that Powerglide is inferior to those two. I couldn't disagree more. The definitive cover of Willie & The Hand Jive is on here (forget Eric Clapton and Sha na na's versions-this one's da schnizel!) Whoever digs the Byrds' countryfied folk on Sweetheart Of The Rodeo needs to check this album out! Billy Kreutzmann guests on drums (from the Grateful Dead) and Jerry Garcia also appears. There's a lot of cool steel guitar playing too, so Junior Brown fans might enjoy a lot of what makes up this album. Imo, this album is stronger than Panama Red and self titled.

A great follow-up to their self-titled debut, Powerglide is pure dayglow cowboy. LA Country, 3-AM Sunset Blvd, feel good rock n' roll. There's lots to like in this 11 catchy song collection. Unfortunately the NRPS were to put out one last great album after this one, that one being Panama Red. Later incarnations of the band seemed listless and uninspired.

I first heard the New Riders back at Juniata College in 1973. It was their classic eponymous first album . Powerglide , their second album , also has many fine songs written by John Dawson . This album also saw the beginning of the emergence of Torbert and Nelson as songwriters too . The New Rider classic songs, 'I Don't Need No Doctor" , and "Dim Lights , Thick Smoke " which were concert favorites are also on this studio album . Cowboy country/folk/rock is at it's lonely finest on this and the first New Rider Album . Nicky Hopkins on piano and Gerry Garcia on banjo help out .
The New Riders really were that good . 4 Stars .

Some great songs on this one. Certainly not Hall-of-Fame material like the first album, but songs like "Contract" and "Lochinvar" are superb. "Better run, gonna see your face in the ground." God bless the memory of the late, great John "Marmaduke" Dawson. "Grateful" that David Nelson is still doing well, touring and hanging with the wor;d's best steel guitarist Buddy Cage. Saw the boys next to the Connecticut River on an idyllic July day. sunset. Kids dancing. Long may you guys run.
