Domestic CD debuts! Fresh from the success of "Get Together," the Youngbloods signed to Warner Bros. in 1970 for four albums that ranged from folk, bluegrass, jazz, and country to good old rock ?n? roll. 1970?s Rock Festival and ?71?s Ride The Wind, both recorded live, find Jesse Colin Young?s mesmerizing guitar and vocals shadowed perfectly by jazzy electric piano and percussion. Good And Dusty (?71) and High On A Ridge Top (?72) focus on classics as interpreted by a San Francisco original: the Youngbloods

Youngbloods Second To Last Effort
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Good & Dusty was the second to last effort by this California based group, (Orginally a folk/jugband that kicked around NYC's Greenwich Village). Here they demonstrate their ability to tackle traditional country/gospel, "Will The Circle Be Unbroken", Chicago Blues, "Drifting And Drifting" and "Pontiac Blues", jugband "I'm A Hog For You Baby" and "Willie & The Hand Jive". They even manage to work in a little Memphis Soul, with a heartfelt rendering of the Otis Redding classic "That's How Strong My Love Is". And finally they round it out with a handful of orginals "Light Shine, "Good & Dusty" and their Merle Haggard sendup "Hippie From Olema #5". All in all a delightful set that marks a highpoint for a very underated 60's-70's combo. Perhaps this should have been their swan song. Unfortunately their last studio recording High On A Ridge Top, featured far less quality material, the likes of La Bamba and Running Bear. With it The Youngbloods went out with a Wimper, not a bang."
Great Covers, Great Vocals, Great Fun

"This, the second to last release by this underrated band, has the boys groovin' and playing their way through a fine list of covers, from "Stagger Lee" to Otis Redding's "That's How Strong My Love Is" to the traditional "Will the Circle Be Unbroken."
The vocals and harmonies are as strong as ever, and the band turns in a few tremendous originals, including the closer "Light Shine," which is a nice bookend to their early hit "Get Together." Their cover of "Hand Jive" is one of the better versions of this song. If you like good-time, hanging on the porch, traveling music, you are in the right place."
