From Loudon:

After the War (II) my father Loudon (II) came home with his bride Martha (I).1 My parents had sex and nine months later I was born albeit almost backwards.2

My youth was spent in Westchester County, New York and Beverly Hills, California.3 I remember being particularly happy when we lived in Southern California.4 However there was romantic agony - I had a tremendous ... Read more in Amazon's Loudon Wainwright III Store

5.0 out of 5 stars the birth of genius 21 Mar 2009
Format:Audio CD
i first heard this on john peel, i had to buy it, i fell in love with loudon, bought his new releases religiously for years, followed his tours and so on. I still think this album, his first, is my favourite. It has a beautiful production sound that sounds fresh to this day, it contains some brilliant songs, school days, four is a magic number, hospital lady, i don't care. The epic Central Square Song. The man was a lyrical genius. He is probably best known nowadays for "the man who couldn't cry", brilliantly covered by Johnny Cash on american recordings. i'd recommend all of Loudon's first four albums in particular, they are all forgotten classics in my opinion, but number one remains the freshest and most original for me.

4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting, melancholy and sparse. 8 Dec 2009
Format:Audio CD
Great album if you're into singer/songwriters from the 60/70's. It's melancholy and introspective without taking itself too seriously. However, if you're going to buy only one Loudon Wainwright album from his early years, then I reckon Album 2 is better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Still a very good album 1 Dec 2013
Format:Audio CD
This, Loudon Wainwright's first album, remains fresh over 40 years on. There are some enduring songs here like Schooldays and Glad To See You've Got Religion and plenty of the wry, witty, incisive and sometimes self-excoriating lyrics which have made Loudon Wainwright one of the best singer-songwriters of my generation.

I admit that I have a special affection for this album and for Album II because I spent more pocket money than I could afford on the album in 1970, went to see him when he toured the UK for the first time a short while later and still have my signed vinyl copies from that time. Even allowing for that, they are both very good albums still and I would recommend them not only to those who like LWIII but to anyone who appreciates a good song, well sung.
