CD Reviews

A must for understanding the folk era
M. J. Smith | Seattle, WA USA | 02/14/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Maria Muldaur first showed her potential with the splendid version of Richland Woman which appears on this collection. But it is a bit unfair to single her out. Jim Kweskin & The Jug Band worked because of a delightful sense of humor, the interplay between various voices, and solid jug band musicianship. Never Swat a Fly is a humorous piece that has remained in Maria Muldaur's repetoire - see her album with her daughter. Both That's When I'll Come Back to You and Chevrolet, duets with Geoff and Maria Muldaur appear in the Folk Duets anthology - a solid recommendation of the quality.The album is a mix of jug band classics and humorous pieces done with very solid musicianship and a comfort in the recording studio often missing in "authentic folk" jugband music album. This results in an album that is an excellent introduction to the jugband sound."
Flashbacks to club 47

"I've stood in many a long cold line in front of Club 47 in Cambridge Mass in the winter of 1964 & 1965 just to watch these guys. They layed the foundation of my musical journey. I've owned all their albums which are now in really rough shape.I was thrilled to see this tape, for now they'll come back into my life after such a long time.......although I still occasionally wake up Geoff Muldour's Newport News or Whoa Mule drifting through my head.....thank you thank you thank you.....these guys are the VERY BEST"
This album is the missing link...

"...between boogie-woogie, jazz, blues, klezmer music, and folk rock. I've been humming these diddies in my head ever since I originally heard Kweskin's Jug Band back in the 1960's. This digitally remastering produces brilliant sound. One of the 10 albums I'd take with me if I were banished to a tropical island. A must have!"
