Customer Reviews

Sounds good to me.

To be honest, I have not hear this album. I bought the "No Free Lunch" EP a few years ago and it's become a treasured album. I've been checking out Green On Red's other albums from that country period and to be honest just listening to the samples this one sounds great, definitely better than the two previous to it. People probabably thought it was "unhip" to be into anything they did by the time of this album, but as usual, people are often wrong, especially the one's striving to be hip.

Sounds Better Now Than It Did Then If Ya Ask Me...

By 1991, this band was operating as just main songsmith Dan Stuart and his younger co-writing sidekick Chuck Prophet with rotating sidemen, but this reduced overhead resulted in some of their most commercially adaptable albums. The group became major headliners in the UK and this record appeared as a hard to find import in the US as "grunge" took over the stateside charts. Ultimately it signaled the tail end of the long haul for Green on Red, but Stuart's south western gothic vocal tales are some of his best and Prophet's guitar is inventive yet reliably restrained in the right places. In retrospect this disc surprised me for standing up better now in some ways than when it was released, aging well into a solid sounding work of original "alt-country" rock prowess. A certain classic rock fetish creeps in as well, perhaps hiring ex-Dylan sideman and Super Session vet Al Kooper as producer/keyboardist helped. Notable on a few tracks were guest appearances from Tony Joe White on harmonica ( Baby Loves Her Gun and Two Lovers) and also joining in on the fun were Spooner Oldham and legendary Memphis songwriter Dan Penn who co-wrote and played on Where The Rooster Crows. If you want to know where bands like Uncle Tupelo, Whiskeytown, Jayhawks or My Morning Jacket got a few of their cues, check some of this band's back catalog out...

One of their best recordings

I bought Green on Red's Gravity Talks while stationed at Travis AFB, California---I was a fan from then on---this is one of their best along with Gas,Food & Lodging. Check out their recent reunion video at the Rialto Theatre in Tucson, Arizona, entitled Live at Rialto.

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s

Always wary of their paisley underground tag, it was only Green on Red's debut EP that leaned on the psychedelic sounds of the '60s before they traded it in for a boozy, all-American sound. They have been credited as latter-day forbears to the No Depression sound forged by Wilco and Son Volt. Singer and songwriter Dan Stuart, Chris Cacavas (keyboards), and Jack Waterson (bass) formed their first group in Tucson, AZ, in 1979. After the band relocated to L.A., drummer Alex MacNicol joined up and Green...
