The Master

"As usual, he has done it again. This is an excellent follow up to the two previous works by this great artist. I have been waiting for 10 years to hear this music again (I previously owned only the record) and it is even better than I remember. The whispers rising to intense pounding beat. Awesome, he was truly the master and lightyears ahead of his time. I highly recommend all of his works."

"As i look at the 'music' available , in to-day's market, i wonder even more at the incredible talent evident still in the late 60's/early 70's singer-songwriters!!..Jackson Browne & Neil Young being "obvious favourites, however, if i had to name one individual artist that undoubtedly went beyond anyone else in terms of originality , and who truly truly blew me away, i wi0uld have to say ...Jimmie Spheeris!!! I happily own (& treasure)) all his albums..(to me, personally) "Ports of the Heart " stil remains his best....this album, now happily on c.d., "The Dragon is dancing" was also a true, true giant of an album, definitely some of his most haunting songs...the title & opening track will forever remain a classic piece of music!All of the songs here are memorable(as usual) "Lost in the midway" recalling his experiences working in the circus, is a mind-blowing tour-de-force, the lyrics, as with "Blue Streets" will haunt me for all time , and that voice ..just about the most magical/mystical voice you could ever imagine!!"Love's in vain" , is the one song i always will particularly cherish on this set ..a song that will always bring tears to my eyes is so , so beautiful!!All of Jimmie Spheeris's albums were nothing less than masterpieces!!Definitely one of the greatest singers & songwriters of ALL TIME!!..BUY!!!!!"

"My first experience with Jimmy Spheeris was on some early saturday morning TV show where he performed the song The Dragon is Dancing,singing and throwing his arms around to some bizare dance.I thought that the song was interesting though and after meeting a tall georgous woman on my bowling team who liked him I had to learn more about him.
He turned out to be great and she just turned me out.Suffice it to say I still appreciate to this day being turned onto his music.
Jimmy Spheeris makes me think of warm fires out in the cold dark woods,Laughing and joking and loving as well.
It is great to see his music still available as I love all five of the Cd's I have and wish I had the live CD.
The Dragon is Dancing is very interesting but to me a strange way to start an album,I think he was trying to get away from the misleading folky label put on him.This album although it doesn't rock outide of Snake Man it is definetly a rock album with hard guitars along with the trip into the mystic.
Favorite cuts are Blown out,In the Misty Woods,Sigh's in a Shell,Tequila Moonlite,Eternity Spin all form make this Jimmy's best release in my opinion."
