"I first heard Mr. Bojangles when it debuted in the summer of 1968. Try as I might I couldn't find out anything about this Walker fellow who had put it out. Unfortunately, the song disappeared almost as quickly as it had appeared. 3 years later the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band covered the song and took it to number #1. I still was haunted by the original version but couldn't find a copy or info about the artist. Then one day at a friends, I discovered "A Man Must Carry On." I was hooked!!! It was then I discovered that Jerry Jeff had been putting out albums all along but as a country artist. Well, I proceeded to buy everything he had done and be came a huge fan. "A Man Must Carry On" is a must for any fan of the genre. It totally captures the feel of Jerry Jeff and the Gonzo's live and in the studio. "LA Freeway", "Mr. Bojangles" never souned better. Other favorites of mine were "One Too Many Mornings", "Don't It Make You Wanna Dance", "Railroad Lady", and "My Buddy." (I include the second disc of this work in my review) I was fortunate enough to see him live twice before he "dissappeared" again in the mid to late 80's. I rediscovered Jerry Jeff again one night watching the "Tonight Show" where he promoted his live at Gruene Hall Album. I now am on his mailing list for his Tried & True label and keep pace with everything he does. I recommend Jerry Jeff to anybody who believes in honest, heartwarming music sung by a musician who's been on the road and has seen life from all sides."
Good stuff !

"Jerry Jeff at his live best, surrounded by good players and cowboy poet Hondo Crouch. Great Texas country-rock. Get Vol 2 also, you need LA Freeway and Mr Bojangles to complete the set."
Guitar man can make you want to smile

"I have many of Jerry Jeff Walkers albums and CDs.This one brought me back to my Redneck Rock or Progressive Country roots right away. I enjoyed hearing Hondo Crouch read his Poem Full Moon as well.Both of these guys are Texas Legends and always will be . You just feel like smiling every time you hear it."
