Album Review

Cookin' was Jerry Reed's sixth RCA album, released in 1970 just prior to his first hit, "Amos Moses." While this disc doesn't include any hits, it is a good showcase for his stylistic dynamics, mixing country ("Just to Satisfy You"), crossover pop ("How Many Tomorrows"), and his guitar prowess (the instrumental "Gomyeyonyo"). All in all, Cookin' is a solid Jerry Reed disc.

Not the Best of Jerry

Though most of this album is good it also contains two of the of the weirdest songs Jerry ever recorded. "The Semi-Great Predictor" which sounds more like a song the Monkees would have recorded back then. "Aunt Maudie's Fun Garden" is another strange selection. These tunes are almost psychedelic-sounding at times. Maybe Chet & Jerry were smoking some weird stuff at the time!

On the other hand the album also features standouts such as "Alabama Wild Man," which is one of my favorite songs. All in all the album is good but not his best - especially for such a fruitful period of Reed's career.

Interesting Album

Very rooted in the mid-to-late 60s, even though the record was released in 1970. Stylistically it's all over the place, with snatches of orchestration, sounds of the Stone Ponies,
Simon & Garfunkel, even the Byrds along with familiar Jerry Reed goofiness. Fun, but I'd still rate "Lord Mr. Ford", "Guitar Country" and especially "Hot a'Mighty" higher.
