5.0 out of 5 stars Some Lonesome Picker.... 14 Feb 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Featured as a 'lost classic' in Uncut magazine a while back, this was the first that i'd heard of 'California Bloodlines' by John Stewart, who it turns out had made his name as songwriter, notably for 'Daydream Believer', recorded by The Monkees. 'California Bloodlines' was recorded in Nashville sometime in 1969, across the road from Bob Dylan, who was in the middle of making 'Nashville Skyline' and both albums share not only some of the same Nashville sidemen but also a sense of adventure and spirit. Another album that i was reminded of was 'White Light' by Gene Clark. Packed full of great songs, it makes you wonder how something as catchy as 'Omaha Rainbow' didn't capture peoples imagination on it's release. 'Some Lonesome Picker', 'California Bloodlines' and 'Never Goin' Back' are a few of the other standout tracks. It does come across that John Stewart had the time of his life making this album. Also included on this 2CD package is follow up 'Willard' which sadly suffers in direct comparison to 'California Bloodlines'. This time around produced by Peter Asher, it feels too polished and lacks some of that energy. It does contain a few great songs though, such as, 'Belly Full of Tennessee', 'Clack Clack', 'Earth Rider' and 'Julie, Judy, Angel Rain'. I guess that overall though, Uncut weren't that far off the mark, as 'California Bloodlines' is certainly a lost classic.

3.0 out of 5 stars A Letdown 16 July 2010
By Boswell
Format:Audio CD
This double CD contains two of Johns earliest albums . The first "California Bloodlines" is an essential 5 star album but its the second "Willard" that I'll review.
Following the critical acclaim of "California Bloodlines" (but commercial failure) John was teamed up with producer Peter Asher by his then manager David Geffen. The result was an album that in hindsight is untypical of Johns work. It seems at times that Asher is trying to turn John into a James Taylor clone (Taylor actually plays on several tracks). Though the album contains some of Johns better compositions like "Julie Judy Angel Rain" "Clack Clack" and "Oldest Living Son", most of the material is forgettable. A huge letdown after the high standard of his previous album.

5.0 out of 5 stars California pure as driven Joad 25 April 2008
By Robert S. Estes - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
John Stewart was an accomplished writer, folk singer when asked to take over the lead vocals/writer for established and proven hitmakers, Kingston Trio. It was risky but worked out well. A couple more hits came during the mid '60's British Invasion era. "Reverend Mr. Black", etc. and the Trio continued to sell, albeit in fewer numbers. It was John Stewart as the steward that was able to bridge the gap.
John left the Trio and released this classic album.

"California Bloodlines" is as an important chronicle of the West during a period of time as any Steinbeck novel, any Herb Caen column, any Jack Kerouac wandering, any wish of a time spent living at the moment while wanting to explore...

5.0 out of 5 stars This is an amazing collection of songs. 27 Aug 2010

John Stewart is a poet. California Bloodlines is an original, inspiring, excellent collection of music that successfully communicates the experience of growing up and living in California, and in America.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great album by a great artist! 27 Dec 2013
By John O. McCauley - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
First off, I have been a great fan of John Stewart for decades. These were two of his best albums, and to get them together like this is a real bonus. He never achieved super-star status, but was extremely popular in the Southwest for decades. He was one of the finest folk-rock singers ever recorded, in my seldom humble opinion. He passed away a few years back, which is a great loss to all who loved him.

love his music but only had 33 RPM record. The CD is great, no "scratches" like my old record. True to the original concert.

This "twofer" is a must have for any fan of the late, great John Stewart. Some of Stewart's best material can be found right here. Highly recommended.
