Album Review

Blues Traveler's loose jam structures on basic blues riffs mark them as a band in the tradition of such predecessors as the Grateful Dead. Unlike that communal effort, however, this group has a distinct focal point in virtuoso harmonica player and vocalist John Popper, who keeps things from meandering too much.

Customer Reviews

Best of the 'jam bands'

If you buy one Traveler album buy this one. Great songs from start to finish. This album kicked off a great career until they lost their driving force Bobby Sheehan. Buthead, Gina, Mullin, Flamer, Slow, GGM, and closed out by one of their best jams Hippie. Can't go wrong here.

An underappreciated classic

Destiny managed to converge on this one for Blues Traveler. They managed to define that elusive 'it' factor. Popper's deft harmonica is weaved thru a collection of songs that can each stand up independently but are best when played as a whole. It's a great record to play on a Saturday morning to get your weekend groove on. I'm not a huge fan of the noodling jam-band music genre but this album has stood the test of time for me. It remains as musically relevant now as when it was released way back when.

Always Great

anymore it is rare, to be able to put on a album and love every song, this Blues Traveler ablum will hold up through the ages! I have loved it for over fifteen years and haven't had enough yet. Wish they could of stayed this relevant. Hope you enjoy as I have. EJ
