Album Review

This is one of the better albums to come out of the '70s in the singer/songwriter genre. ~ Kenneth M. Cassidy, Rovi

Customer Reviews

Under-appreciated Classic...

I first heard this album upon it's release in 1973. It got played a lot on KDKB FM, that seminal early 70's Phoenix/Mesa area radio station. The blend of instrumentation and styles and the impeccable songs and musicianship grabbed everyone's attention. I love "Storyville...", especially the Dr. John piano riffs. All of the cuts feature fine storytelling and melodies, but you're bound to have favorites, since the style varies from song to song. I saw Danny solo acoustic in a number of small clubs over the years and he is an honest-to-goodness troubador, living an itinerant lifestyle true to the nature of his songs. Enjoy...

Classic

In the seventies, I played "The Road" on stage acoustically. The lyrics are wonderful. To this day, I recommend this album to young folkies and writers. It's well recorded, has depth, and floats. You can get lost in this album.

Superb

Breezy Stories is one of top singer/songwriter albums of the '70s, and that's saying something. Side 1 of the LP (the first 5 songs above) form an unbroken listening experience as O'Keefe's distinctive voice blends with intriguing lyrics and absorbing music/instrumentation to take you deep within the worlds he creates. The 2nd side (songs 6 - 11) is less of a unified piece but has fine tunes nonetheless, with bouncy upbeat numbers (Steppin Out Tonight, If You Can't Boogie Woogie, Catfish) and a couple of ballads/story songs (Mad Ruth/The Babe, The Edge, Farewell to Storyville). Thanks iTunes for adding The Road (a fine version up there with Jackson Browne's) and O'Keefe's FM radio staple, Good Time Charlie's Got the Blues. This is music that has stood the test of time very well.
