"I knew Steve Goodman (and Brad Ellis) and his demented sidekick, John Prine, from my days as a bartender at the Earl of Old Town in 1970.
It is difficult for me to describe the beauty, the craftsmanship, the honesty, the hilarity of Steve's music. As Brad notes in his review, Steve died way too young.
I guarantee you will not be disappointed if you buy this album. I am on my forth copy now, since I keep giving them away to my friends, some of whom don't know and believe in the genius of Steve Goodman.
I also highly recommend "No Big Surprise", the compilation album of almost all of Steve's songs and performances."
Great stories from a great storyteller

"Growing up in Wisconsin amid the folksingers and protesters who over the decades have become middle-aged Prairie Home Companion afficionados, I met Steve (and his scruffy sidekick whom I later learned was John Prine) while going to college in Madison, Wisconsin and moonlighting (literally) as a lighting designer in college music venues. Steve had an energy and wit that pervaded all of his music. Like my fellow yankee from Lilburn, GA, I hand out Steve's CDs to cherished friends, doing my small part to keep the music flowing. I was pleased to see John Prine in concert recently, still doing some of the old songs in honor of his best friend. The Ballad of Penny Evans, about a war widow of the Vietnam era - rings as cutting and fresh now, in the context of the current conflict, as it did then. Enjoy this album, and buy more - Artistic Hair is one of my personal favorites - for your friends."

"I just wanted to add to all those ParrotHeads out there (Jimmy Buffett fans) that you'll see a very young Jimmy Buffett on the cover of this cd (I think I remember him using the name "Marvin Gardens") I've loved this album for almost 30 years now."
