Before signing to Phil Walden's legendary jam-rock label, Capricorn, Chicago's Freddy Jones Band--so dubbed though no one in the band is actually named Freddy Jones--released this indie disc that introduced their likable blues-rock sound and roots-savvy ensemble work. Guitarist Wayne Healey's singing and Santana-esque lead guitar, as well as Rob Bonaccorsi's homey lap steel and slide accompaniment, bounce nicely against singer Marty Lloyd's gravely shades of Little Feat's Lowell George and Gregg Allman. With a palette of folky acoustic filigrees, echo-driven guitar lines, jazzy vamps, and sunny sing-alongs like "This Time Around" and "Peace by Piece," the Jones Band's debut is an accessible, middle-of-the-road rock record that nevertheless reaches great heights of focused musicality and honest American song craft. --James Rotondi

Back when Dave Matthews opened up for these guys
Matthew W. Paradise | Indianapolis, IN United States | 10/04/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Ahhh I remember seeing these guys like 15 years ago when Dave Matthews opened up for them. Back when Under the Table and Dreaming had just come out along with this album. That still goes down as one of my favorite concerts ever. Two groups that can just get the crowd going. The Vogue in Indianapolis never sounded so good.
It's a shame that both groups didn't take off the same, but such is life. If you want a great cd to go on a road trip or pop in and just jam to, this and Mile High Live are they? Great great great.
