Album Review

Exceptional songs and musical guests, including Ry Cooder and members of Los Lobos and Tom Petty's Heartbreakers, make this pricey import CD of Peter Case's second solo release a worthwhile purchase, especially for serious collectors and fans. Favorites "Travelin' Light," "Two Angels," and "Put Down the Gun" first appeared on this 1989 album. Unfortunately, for its considerable cost, the 2001 international reissue doesn't include any unreleased tunes or packaging surprises.

Customer Reviews

Nothing Short of Amazing

There are so many great songs on this album, and it has a great title. Charlie James is a wonderful, hanuting tune that has a some wonderful minor chord construction in that gives it a slightly sinister feel. Put Down The Gun has some wonderful guitar work and lyrics. Entella Hotel is a great slow-paced tune with some wonderful picking and a cool melody. Finally, Poor Old Tom is an amazing story song that has some wonderfully dark imagery and a surprising story resolution. Case is a great instrumentalist and songwriter, but this stuff is much different than his Plimsouls stuff. Delightfulyl quirky but a very nice listen. His best solo work in my opinion

Would head my list of best album most people never heard

I'm a music junkie for every kind of music. I have deep love for this album, ever since it first came out and feel just as strongly about it today. This might be one of the 10 CDs I've listened to most in entirety. Do yourself a favor and sample all ten songs quickly to see if this js for you. Probably the best alt-country singing you'll ever hear.
