"This cd is not as funny as his other ones. I recommend "Greatest Hits" with many of his more famous stories about marcel ledbetter, coon hunting,etc."
Good, clean country humor

"Jerry Clower is the funniest man to ever live, in my opinion, and I really regret the fact that he passed away just a couple of months before I actually had the chance to see him live back in 1998. As a proud Southerner myself, I love his thoroughly Southern humor; the man was country, and he was proud of it. He was also a deeply religious man who expressed his beliefs in a poignant yet quiet way, usually ending his albums with some words of advice on how to be a better person. Clower Power, released in 1973, was Jerry Clower's third album. Clower was at his best when telling longer stories such as Knock `Em Out, John or Marcel's Talking Chain Saw, but there are some real gems among the twenty short, hilarious stories on this album. Of particular interest is How to Back Into Show Business, in which he describes his transformation from fertilizer peddler to famous country comedian. There are plenty of stories about growing up in rural Mississippi and vignettes of the unforgettable Ledbetter family, particularly Uncle Versey, Marcel (of chain saw fame), and Clovis (who wanted to be a log truck instead of a little boy). Jerry Clower was just naturally funny; he could have read the obituaries and had a multitude of otherwise serious men and women rolling in the aisles with laughter. He is the epitome of family entertainment and the perfect instructor on the art of enjoying life to its fullest no matter what your situation."

"This was Jerry's best ever. I could not stop laughing through out the album. His "backwoods" tales remind me of my grandfather's stories of the rural south. I highly recommend this work!"
