CD Reviews

Quintessential Gary P.
Lone Star Bob | Texas | 08/11/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Update: October 2008

The version of "London Homesick Blues" recorded on JJW's "Viva Terlingua" was performed vocally by Gary P. Nunn during the taping of the live set in Luckenbach. Therefore, both versions discussed here were sung by him in different venues. Hope that simmers a pointless debate. -LSB (no longer in Afg.)

Original Post: August 2003

This recording defines the broad spectrum of Gary P. Nunn's ability as a front man (chalk up much of JJW's early success to Gary P. and the Lost Gonzos), not to mention his ability to craft songs that put you right smack dab in an inner tube on the Guadalupe River. The Lone Star anthem "London Homesick Blues" notwithstanding, these live renditions of some GPN classics such as "The Nights Never Get Lonely," "What I like about Texas," and "Austin Pickers" are probably the best live versions out there. In addition, the recording contains a HOT rendition of the JJW/LGB standard, "Public Domain." All in all, a classic and timeless recording and a rare release from the vaults of Austin City Limits and KLRU. A vinyl collectible, but a CD treasure."

"I grew up with this album in college in the eighties. Gary P. played a lot around San Angelo, Tx and he is the real thing, or was at that time. I find it to be the best true to itself album around. It is a folk/country/eclectic/hillbilly rock album that may not work for the California reviewer, but it's just right for me. My favorite is Tennessee road which is about Elvis. Then there is "the Last thing I needed the first thing this morning". Really great stuff! I am only mad at myself for not listening to it in a couple of years. I am going to end this review right now so I can go put on the scratchy ol' cassette that's been played until the you can't read the title."
