The old Gonzo magic is still there, better than ever
Larry W. Smith | Moulton, AL USA | 07/12/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Lost Gonzo Band, are famous (along with Michael Murphy and a few others) for pioneering country-rock and helping create that Cosmic Country sound. They are perhaps best known for touring and recording with Jerry Jeff Walker. But on their own, as the Lost Gonzo band, they recorded three excellent albums in the 1970s with their last official album being "Signs of Life" that contained their signature song "London Homesick Blues", written by member Gary P. Nunn, which became the theme song for the PBS TV series Austin City Limits. After "Signs of Life" they just kind of disappeared. And then, in the early 1990s, Jerry Jeff Walker persuaded the Gonzos to tour with him again. As the result of that reunion, the Lost Gonzo Band found themselves back in the studio to record "Rendevous". Rendevous is a great album and proof that the Gonzos are still great musicians and writers and never lost the energy, spirit and enthusiasm that allowed them to forge a new sound and influence the trends of music. The songs are a collection of styles ranging from country-rock to R&B with just a touch of reggae and mexican flavor. Modern recording techniques give the Gonzos' music a slightly different mix than the old albums had, but the blend and orchestrated effect that shaped the old Gonzo magic is still present, stronger and better than ever."
