Album Review

The Mother Hips' Tim Bluhm's solo debut comes disguised as a folky, '70s-inspired singer/songwriter record (though the cover art recalls a mid-'70s offering by Kansas). It's definitely a West Coast sound with its American Beauty feel ("Harnessmaker's Song") and Crosby, Stills & Nash harmonies; "Girl Crazy" gives a nod to Brian Wilson. References to literature and the Golden State pop out in the lyrics, scribbled Neil Young-style in the CD booklet. But Bluhm's voice is that of a neo-Californian with a charming lack of polish and detachment — more like cynical Beck than sincere Jackson Browne — but with enough interest of its own to keep the listener curious about what's next on his agenda.

Customer Reviews

Could be my favorite album of all time

This is certainly one of the best unknown albums ever produced. While quite different than the music he produced with The Mother Hips, Tim's solo albumn is an incredible demonstration of his ability to produce great music. If you like a mellower album to throw on every now and then, this is one that you will put on and play over and over again.


I'm glad this album is here. The CD is no longer in print, and I believe this is Tim's best work (which is saying a lot if you are familiar with him). This was a very fertile time, landing between the Mother Hips "Later Days" and "Green Hills of Earth." You can see how he influenced both and how the direction of the band also influenced his solo effort. "L&SC" has all the meticulous production that makes "Green HOE" so amazing, but also continues on with the fantastic, rustic musings of "LD." From the excellent word play of "The Way You Fly" to the beach boyesque "You Break Mine Too" to the trippy, floaty "Godspeed John Glenn", you will not be disappointed.
