Product Description

Product Description

'Native Sons' by the Long Ryders is and was not a mere classic but an out-and-out groundbreaking album. Recorded in early summer 1984 by the great Henry Lewy (Joni Mitchell's main man in the studio, also producer of the Flying Burrito Brothers and Gene Clark) by the time it was released it was the number one alternative/college radio album in the United States and the number two Indie Chart entry in England...kept out of first place only by the Smiths' Meat Is Murder. 'Native Sons' was the first straight Country & Western meets a punk rock sensibility on the American musicial stage and it proved so influential both Chris Robinson (Black Crowes) and Jeff Tweedy (Wilco) have named it publicly as a wildly thought-provoking release for young hip (then) punks to have heard. Kurt Cobain had a copy (his favourite song was the 12-string dominated closer 'I Had A Dream' and so did Justin Currie of Del Amitri in Scotland. Elvis Costello was such a fan he signed the Long Ryders to his Demon label so 'Native Sons' could be issued in the UK. Starting off with the wild ride through a musical tip of the Stetson to Jerry Lee Lewis that the banging drums and James Burton-guitar of Final Wild Son provided to the ending McGuinn-like chimes of I Had A Dream this was a record like no others; Everly Brothers harmonies with mandolin, banjo and Rickenbackers, Dylanesque pleas for equality alongside aching heart romantic balladry, a sense of purpose and a page turning...Native Sons opened as many doors as it shut. With the late, great Gene Clark on board to sing on the Byrds-like Ivory Tower this was a sound which announced the future was here and the past was going to be part of it. 'Native Sons' is now reissued with both extra tracks and the entire 10-5-60 EP included for the first time.

I first heard The Long Ryders thumping up from the room below in student digs, and had to go down to see what the root of the noise was. That was 'Looking for Lewis & Clarke', the only LR track that ever made it onto Top of The Pops. This is their (?) first album, brimming over with big sounds, fab fingerpickin', and the distinctive sub-punk country vocals that give an edge of pain to even the chunkiest rocking tracks, like 'Never got to Meet the Mom' and 'Run Dusty Run'. 'Tell it to the Judge on Sunday' is a song like a runaway train and looks forward to the even finer collection of tracks on 'State of Our Union', an album that doesn't seem to be available anymore. Shake your hams and fists to this great, angry band.

5.0 out of 5 stars Paisley Underground Classic! 10 April 2007
By 9ftneil VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
Released in 1984 the Ryders first album was a shining beacon in what became known as the 'Paisley Underground' - retro 60's sounding bands with a Punk underbelly (see also Dream Syndicate, Rain Parade & Green On Red). Eschewing their contemporaries more psych/blues leanings the Ryders were fond of the wide open sound of classic Americana which they delivered with chiming Rickenbacker guitars recalling the Byrds and with a distinct country based influence. But that didn't mean the Ryders couldn't deliver punchy fast paced alt-rock with a satirical bite, far from it, and on the superb '83 release 10-5-60 EP included here their stripped down sound recalls the classic 'garage' sound of the Standells and Seeds at their finest. For 'Native Sons' though the Ryders embraced a more eclectic vision of Americana using mandolins, banjos, and steal guitars to colour their sublime tales of the fading glories of the American Dream that harks back to the influence of The Band and Gram Parsons. But it's the nod towards Dylan's classic "wild mercury" sound of 'Highway 61 Revisited' that emerges through all the layers of gorgeous Byrdsian guitars that really lends weight to the Ryders music - opener 'Final Wild Son' evokes 'Subterranean Homesick Blues'. Like Dylan the Ryders seldom ignored the political world around them with sharp lyrics about "Afghanistan, the Russians and even Vietnam", "abortion, mob extortion and also neutron bombs" on the superb 'Never Got To Meet The Mom'. But it's with their wild tales of whiskey drinking debauchery, love lost ennui, train wrecks and yearnings to leave small town life behind that the Ryders really score in evoking that Springsteen Heartland but with the ragged glories of Neil Young.
