Let's reissue this CD

"There's no sense in my telling you what a great album Soul of a City Boy is. I bought the record in 1965 or so when it came out and played it to death. I still have it but don't have a turntable. I recently sat down to think of some folk albums I owned as a kid that I'd like to buy on CD, and Soul was at the top of my list. So I headed to Amazon and found it was available--for $140!. Seems they put it out on CD, then discontinued it. This album needs to be re-re-released on CD at a normal price for Jesse's aging fans.

If you agree, go to and ask that he put this out again and let the speculators eat those overpriced CDs."
Good urban blues debut

"This was a great first album and in many ways Young might have been better off artistically by continuing to perform these kinds of songs. Well-played and well-sung, these songs had a fresh sound back then and if you listen to this recording now, it still has that appeal."
Bare folk-soul

"If you appreciated Jesse's songs and voice on the Youngblood records you'll love this. Just the young Jesse and guitar. Reminiscent of Jesse Winchester's southern elegance, with a touch of Tim Hardin, and Sun Session Elvis - but really something else entirely. Besides, Jesse C. is actually a native of Queens! After a long day, I'd like to sit on a smokey mountain hillside porch and let Jesse's "Rye Whiskey" wash over me and then top it off with "Sunlight" from his Youngbloods days."
