Baldry Delivers Exactly as Promised
lymann | 03/22/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great complilation of Baldry's work through the eighties and early nineties after he moved from the UK to Canada (hence the title). Not surprisingly, the version of "Don't Try to Lay No Boogie Woogie ..." is a live version recorded in the early nineties. The only compalint is the censored "radio version" of the title track; otherwise a must-have for any true Baldry fan!"
It Ain't Easy!

"Well I don't own the CD yet, but it will be in my wish list.
I'm sure I'll love this collection! I own LP version of "It Ain't Easy" with original studio version of: "Don't try to Lay No Boogie-Woogie On the King of Rock and Roll" I want the CD version if it's yet available, or every will be? Elton John and Rod Stewart are on it with him. Baldry is 6'7" tall and lives in Vancouver BC Canada (not far from me!) He got together with Alex Koerner and formed Blues Incorporated, which featured Mick Jagger for backup vocals and Charlie Watts on drums. Baldry also founded the Hoochie Coochie Men with Rod Stewart as lead vocolist. Got to get "It Ain't Easy" !!"
Baldry covers Himself

"If you are a Long John Baldry fan you know he has made his career on mostly covers of other peoples music. We listen to Long John for his voice and his interpretations. This CD is a perfect example. He does newer covers of his older music (covers), His original studio version of "Don't try to lay no boogie woogie on the king of rock n' roll" is much tighter and in some ways better but his music is always changing and never contrived. You should own both versions if your a fan. This is a great compilation for Baldry fans."
