CD Reviews

Al Anderson's early years.
Howard S. Finkel | MAPLEWOOD, NJ USA | 07/17/2001
(4 out of 5 stars)

"This is actually Al Andersons 2nd act with the Wildweeds, reborn as Nashville cats (with a few of the best real Nashville cats along for the ride). Al's Wildweeds actually started out as a blue eyed soul band who were right up there with the Rascal's in everything but fame. This is a terrific country rock album with great players (by the Wildweeds and their stellar guests), great singing and great songs. Ian Matthews even built a Southern Comfort L.P. around 2 or 3 of the songs on this album. If your looking for a lot of Al's gonzo guitar solo's (Chet Atkins meets Dick Dale), this is not the recording but it's a terrific introduction to one of the most talented musicians of our time. I wish Vanguard could get the rights to the Wildweeds early singles like, "No Good to Cry", this was a #1 soul hit that never charted Nationally (in Connecticut they were Stars). Someone should do a re-make of this song, if they don't, I will."
