CD Reviews

Not many better, if any ever, than A Salty Dog
Evan B. Quinn | Boston, MA | 12/21/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The subtle orchestration and vocal interpretation, the swing between classical and blues rock influence, the interplay between piano, organ and one of the top 5 rock drummers from the early era (BJ Wilson seldom receives proper credit - he wasn't the wild thrasher like a Moon, but perfectly complemented his band) not to mention excellent engineering, and real poetry for lyrics... "Now many moons and many Junes have passed since we made land." C'mon. Despite all the tricks and training of today's rock "stars," if you were to try to find anything better in current rock, and few if any in classic or 80s/90s rock, you would find yourself on "A twisted path, our tortured course, and no one left alive.""
"All Hands on Deck!"
A Minstrel in the Gallery | Portsmouth, New Hampshire USA | 06/28/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I was in the midst of reading Herman Melville's "Moby Dick" when I listened to this album for the first time, and "A Salty Dog" sent chills down my spine. Since I grew up on the New England coast, I have always loved "The Wreck of the Hesperus" but I would recommend this album to anybody anywhere! You'll find yourself whistling along to "Boredom" and marvel at Robin Trower's powerful vocal performance on "Crucifiction Land." I think my favorite track on the whole album, however, is the last one. This is a musical experience you will not soon forget!"
Too bad this version is out-of-print

(5 out of 5 stars)

"This Westside-issued version of A SALTY DOG is/was the best available package. Great value for the $$$, the bonus tracks were at least interesting, the remastering was first-rate, and "Long Gone Geek," while sounding a bit out of place with the rest of the album, finds its chronological place in time as part of this package. Again, as of today (10/17/07), this is the version of A SALTY DOG to own. Highly recommended."
