CD Reviews

A Gem -- Understated, Beautiful
Todd and In Charge | Miami, FL | 04/10/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Let me say I picked this up after reading a book on the Laurel Canyon music scene in the late 60s and early 70s (see my reviews page for more). I'm not much of an Eagles fan but I found their founding and history pretty fascinating, and of course JDS is part of it all.

So, in the flush of cash surrounding the first Eagles record, J.D. got his own opportunity to hit the ball out of the park. But instead of dumbing it down the way the Eagles did to achieve pop stardom, JDS went the other direction -- crafting careful, beautiful, winners, filled with harmonies and great hooks, but in a deeper, more meaningful way.

The record really holds up, but requires a few listens before it unfolds. Several of these songs should have been big hits, such as "White Wing," "How Long," or "Some Call It Music."

Soaring harmones provided by Frey, Henley, and of course JDS, precisely engineered and produced, this one had everything....and went nowhere.

Luckily, it's now available on CD and I urge everyone who likes early Eagles, the Laurel Canyon scene, or just great music to pick this one up."
AN ORIGINAL

"FROM THE FIRST NOTE ONE OF THE BEST EVER. SIMPLY UNDER RATED. WHENS THE NEXT ALBUM? A FAN SINCE THE 70'S, HOW ABOUT A CONCERT? LET US KNOW. THANKS FOR ALL THE GREAT TUNES. CHAMPAIGN TO YOU!!"
Great California Country Rock

"Better than Jackson Browne, better than the Eagles, a must have for fans of the '70s California sound. Black Rose is my favorite Souther work, but this one is a close second."
