Rodney Crowell did not meet widespread recognition as a performer until his breakthrough album, DIAMONDS AND DIRT in 1988. Regardless, Crowell was active as a solo performer, distinguished songwriter, and session man for some of the more progressive country performers of the 1980's like Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, and his wife, Rosanne Cash, whom he also produced.

Rodney Crowell's best albums feature a fine blend of his own composition and carefully picked songs by distinguished songwriters like Guy Clark.

His namesake album, Rodney Crowell, employs that formula as well as a lineup of excellent session performers most notably Albert Lee who shows his considerable guitar talent through out this album.

The best song on the album is Guy Clark's ballad, "She Ain't Goin' Nowhere." Crowells emotive singing coupled with Albert Lee's knockout guitar solo make this a song to remember. "Shame on the Moon" is a fine song made a hit by Bob Seger. All present is "Til I Gain Control Again" which has been covered by some of the finest in country music including Willie Nelson, Crystal Gayle, Emmylou Harris, Leeann Womack, and others. The album finishes with a superb rocker, "Old Pipeliner," where Albert Lee's lead guitar is setup perfectly by Crowell on rhythm guitar and the rest of the instrumental ensemble.

It's terrible this album has not been available on CD for so long. For fans of country music such as that which Emmylou Harris, Vince Gill, and Rosanne Cash perform, those who like great Texas songwriters like Townes Van Zandt, Jerry Jeff Walker, and Guy Clark, or fans of music like the Eagles, Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, and Neil Young, there's plenty to like about this album.

Really was first introduced due to watching The Johnny Cash Music Festival 2011. Love his song "After All this Time." A good songwriter and performer, and if Johnny Cash thought the world of Rodney Crowell, that's enough for me.

Rodney Crowell has long been a great writer and musician. He has been around longer than most and has also written more than most people may realize.Rodney has written songs that have brought a lot of people to the for-front of country music. You also need to hear him do his own stuff and appreciate "HOE IT IS DONE"

I've recently evolved into a keen admirer of Crowell's multifaceted talents: song writer, singer/guitar player, producer, with much "etc." to boot.. I've been acquiring his recorded output from the more than four decades that he's been active, both to enjoy on its own terms but also to see if I can track his artistic development. This is one of the earliest albums (1981) of his that I own and there are certainly abundant youthful high spirits in play here on the up tempo songs which predominate, providing southern-inflected good times listening. There's little effort here as there would be in the recordings beginning around the turn of the century, two decades further on, to shape his material into a song cycle with a coordinated range of emotional responses or to reflect what later would begin to emerge as central themes in his songcraft. The album does contain perhaps his most covered single song, "Till I Can Gain Control Again," though I don't think his early approach to getting it across does the song justice.. This is a young man's take on his life and times, though there are scattered signs of the mature, deeply reflective artist who would emerge later.
