Feels like southern rock with some edgy guitar.
Super horn section, classy reggae riffs, such a great group, I loved it.
I am still an apathetic Pogues listener.
This is a true blast from the past with Booker T and MGs bringing my teen years to life. This is a jazz classic that is underappreciated.
This album was a meteor of hope during a very dark time in American history.
Sorry, still not a Jeff Beck fan.
Joni Mitchell on a quest for love, meaning and the next bingo game. Here is an insightful "modern" review of the songstress by Rob Moura. https://www.popmatters.com/joni-mitchell-hejira-atr4
The crossover from jazz to the traditional love tunes did not rock my world. I wanted to see more experimentation which was clearly not the objective of the producer.
I have always loved Pink Moon and had never listened to this album. Every song on this album is an experiment. It merges Nick Drake's ASMR-like sound with orchestral tracks, flutes, jazz horn grooves with backup singers. A big surprise to me was Poor Boy which is a very cool, jazzy piece. It is sad that the album never got the attention it deserved. The album is quite upbeat and different from the moody austerity of Pink Moon and highlights his innovative guitar sound which is sometimes quasi medieval. Nick Drake, a musician from another dimension, like J. S. Bach.
The title song alone for George Jones', The Grand Tour, is just perfect and is why I think country song writers are America's best poets. Love lost sucks.
Not an SC fan.
A real gem of an album.
