"If you have an interest in Ramblin' Jack when he was at the top of his game as the mentee of Woody and a mentor of Dylan, get ahold of this 1970 release, originally an LP on the Reprise label. There are Woody songs, there are rappin' segments, there are a couple of selections that made sense only to Jack, and there are about five performances here which are dynamite, including Kristofferson's "Me and Bobby McGee." Earlier Elliot albums are available, and so are later ones, all the way up to a couple of years ago, but this is the Ramblin' Jack of Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review, the guy who was just beginning to earn the "elder statesman" designation. I bought this when it was brand new, but I enjoy it more now than I did then. Jack always was unique and cantankerous and inconsistent...much like Woody himself. He doesn't appeal to everybody, but if if you do like him, this is one of his most interesting releases."
