Album Review

As he explains in the liner notes, sometime around 1985 Jerry Jeff Walker decided to bring his music up to date, and he put together a series of (mostly) acoustic sessions where he mixed old songs and new.

In hindsight, the album seems like a classic Unplugged session just slightly ahead of its time. High points include a version of "Mr. Bojangles" in which Walker, miraculously, does not sound even a bit jaded, plus there's a jaw-dropping electric guitar solo by longtime bandmate John Inmon.
