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

(4 out of 5 stars)
"Was there a more beautiful sweet tenor than that of Jesse Colin Young? Here Jesse, Banana and the boys gently move through a series of Americana standards ("Running Bear"), doo-wop ("Speedo"), Beatles ("She Came in Through the Bathroom Window"), Dylan ("I Shall Be Released") and more, all delivered in a relaxed, effortless manner. Jesse's vocal on "I Shall Be Released" is special and touching, their energetic take on "La Bamba" makes you think you are listening to it for the first time, and I especially like the Wurlitzer piano break on the jazzified "She Came in Through the Bathroom Window."
I highly recommend all of the reissues of the Youngbloods 1970-to-their-demise output. It's doubtful these classics will stay in print, overlooked and ignored, but a lot of great great music there."
