Possibly Greg Brown's Best
Michael Z. Jody | NYC & East Hampton, NY United States | 02/21/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a marvelous album! Everyone agrees Greg's deep DEEP voice is amazing to listen to, and his performances are humorous, poignant, and honest, but the writing on "Canned Goods" is absolutely the best thing he has ever done (IMHO). It is so lovely and nostalgic and funny and sad that I cry every time I listen to it (which is why I can't play this album in public). And the comic bite of "Just by Myself," and "I Don't Want to Have a Nice Day" is like the best Mexican food, sharp, spicy, and just delicious. I am a huge fan of Mr. Brown, have many of his CDs, and for my money this is the best one (yet). If you've never heard this brilliant folk singer songwriter, buy this album, and if you are a fan and don't know this one, lucky you for what's in store."

"This CD is a folk song gem. The songs are a wonderful combination of humor and haunting recollections of growing up in the midwest. Greg Brown does not take himself too seriously, and in doing so, says a lot. My favorite song is the one about fishing on the Laughing River "way, way, way up in Michigan.""
A Warm Summer Rain
Mr. Finn | Cedar Falls, IA USA | 04/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"His voice is like the rumbling of a thunderstorm as it sweeps over the prarie miles away. His lyrics are as simple and as true as an ancient mid-western farmer. His guitar playing makes you feel like you are sitting on a front porch during a warm summer rain. For anyone who enjoys folk, rock, or just some down-home strummin and a pickin, "The Live One" is a must-buy CD. His lyrics are at times playful, at others powerful, and always beautiful. His masterful guitar playing and stomach rattling voice all come together to create an "every-song-is-great" CD."
