5.0 out of 5 stars Sublime understatement 10 Aug 2001
Format:Audio CD
Quite simply this album is perfect. JJ Cale is a genius and this for me is his masterpiece. Not one note could be removed without flawing the whole. If you like the covers of his songs made popular by artists such as Eric Clapton then you will be delighted by the originals. I guess I've owned this album for a decade now and yet I never tire of listening to it however wide my collection of other music. Close the curtains, dim the lights, pour a large glass of something and kick back and then put the world to rights...

5.0 out of 5 stars Second phase 26 Jun 2007
By D. J. H. Thorn TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
1979's '5' came three years after Cale's previous effort and marked a significant change in his recording ethic. The production on '5' is a little heavier and more polished than on his earlier albums. It doesn't make for a better album, but the material and the playing is, as usual, peerless. Another difference is song length. The longest track on Cale's debut album barely topped three minutes, but here, backed by brass and strings, the moody 'Sensitive Kind' runs to over five. 'Friday', which is cast in Cale's usual blues mode, is over four.

Superb, twirling blues licks open the compelling 'Thirteen Days'; the smouldering 'Boilin' Pot', which is even slower, is just as effective. 'I'll Make Love To You', raided by Eric Clapton for his 'Backless' album, is more uptempo, the most commercial track on the album. 'Don't Cry Sister', 'Fate Of A Fool' and 'Mona' are more in the slower blues mode of the first two tracks. The most distinctive tracks are 'Too Much For Me', a personal favourite that has the spareness of his earlier work and the less impressive 'Let's Go To Tahiti' and 'Katy Kool Lady'. Cale's earlier albums are better, but '5' is still a great effort.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazingly mellow album way before its time 3 Mar 2001
Format:Audio CD
I haven't had the opportunity to listen to this album for a number of years and finally decided to treat my self and purchase the CD version...it didnt matter that I cant remember the words, after all this time I can remember the feel good factor of this whole collection...J J Cale enjoyed making this album, you can hear it in every note, just looking at the track listing brought back memories of nights by the fire lsitening to 'Boiling Pot' or 'Katy Cool Lady' I particularly like 'Friday'. I am not a lover of country style music,however,J J Cale both surprises and entertains with his style, it has all the flavour of the american country song at it's best without the 'Twang', I would recommend this to anyone, it has somthing for everybody, trust me.....purchase and enjoy!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 27 May 2008
Format:Audio CD
This is a great album, my favourite. Let's Go to Tahiti, Friday,Thirteen Days, Don't Cry Sister, Sensitive Kind. This was made for CD, 15 years to early. Okay I like JJ,but this to me is the peak. And Eric Clapton hasn't covered a single track of this!

5.0 out of 5 stars J J Cale at his best 9 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I just love this album and bought it to replace my original cassette. It's one of Cale's best and his Katy Kool Lady is for my very special daughter, who, not surprisingly is Kate. It's her song.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great little album... 16 April 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Really enjoyed listening to this CD, I'd only heard JJ Cale with Eric Clapton, listening to this you realise that its JJ who's been influencing EC all these years. Great laid back tracks, getting better with each listen - well worth buying.
