5.0 out of 5 stars AN ALBUM THAT NEVER DATES 23 Sep 2002
Format:Audio CD
This long lost masterpiece could well be the best album for this great, forgotten band. This CD is a must for anyone who appreciates the melodies and harmonies of groups like Bread and the early Eagles.
For anyone who has heard the lush voice of Larry Lee on the first album, there are more offerings from him here. Listen to the song Mr Powell and you will again hear him at his very best.
You will also hear Randle Chowning sing some of his finest songs with Leatherwood and Whippoorwill. The latter is sung with such feeling with its beautiful strings and piano. It will give you goosebumps.
On listening to this album you will find that it never dates. You also get the feeling that the guys are having fun as well as taking their music very seriously; I think this is what makes this band great.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lakeful of ideas 28 Feb 2008
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Someone lent me this album in the late 1970s and it's even better than I remembered it. The OMDs explore a wide range of Americana and moods, due mainly, I think, to their musical versatility and their diverse vocal styles. The uptempo, r&b-oriented material is a little mild but always bright. Their main forte seems to lie in the beautiful, drifting, at times whimsical songs that Larry Lee sings. His 'If I Only Knew' and 'Mr Powell' are more mainstream than the country/folk styles of 'Leatherwood,' 'Out On The Sea' and 'Whippoorwill,' which are taken up by the richer-voiced band members. Sometimes electric, sometimes acoustic, with mandolin and numerous other embellishments, each track has its own character, but as a whole the album fits together perfectly. Not an easily categorisable album, 'The Car Over The Lake Album' is as likely to appeal to rock and pop fans as country devotees.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Sound That Fits 22 Aug 2002
By Jerry Fry - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You don't need to be from the Ozarks to appreciate this album but it doesn't hurt. I rate this as The Daredevils best album. Although there are many good songs on their other albums, I'd have to say there are more on this one. "Mr. Powell" is one of the best. It's in reference to the journey through the Grand Canyon he and his party took , "Just about a hundred years or so ago". Some of these songs will always sound good no matter how much time passes. Some will call this Country or Country Rock but I would also define it as Folk music. "From Time to Time" is a beautiful song that you can feel. All the songs are good, there aren't many albums like that, and it's just my opinion, but if you've heard anything else by the "Ozarks" that you liked you should hear this.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Car Over The Lake Album Cover Album 18 Mar 2005
By Mark Champion - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
They did it again with their third release, and again with David Anderle at the producer's console. There are some problems - - the two tracks which originally were the album-side openers ("Keep On Churnin'" and "Thin Ice") are perfunctory exercises in both performance and intention. And it seems they front-loaded the album a bit, as tracks two through six play like a best-of sequence: five absolutely astonishing songs, parading gloriously one after another. Randall Chowning's "Leatherwood" is peerless, a beautiful countrified paeon to the easy life, with a gorgeous harmonized chorus and an instrumental break straight out of the woods. And when Chowning teams up with Steve Cash for the harp-and-yodelling, oboe-flavored fourstep "Gypsy Forest", hey - - go on and levitate. I do, every time I hear it. Cash's and Larry Lee's airy "If I Only Knew" should have been as big a hit as was "Jackie Blue". The CAR OVER THE LAKE ALBUM flags a bit as it goes on, though. The last half isn't quite as strong as the first but again, it's relative as all the songs are at least very, very good. The original LP closed with Chowning's stately, arresting elegy "Whippoorwill", a fitting closer if ever there were one. The three bonus tracks, originally a flexi released with the LP, aren't exactly essential and mitigate the closure. They hold up well enough on their own though, so it's nice to have them on CD. The admonishing text printed on the original flexi was somewhat apologetic regarding the quality of the songs and their putatively irreverent humor, but with people like Oscar Brand running around releasing humorously peurile albums since the late '40s, why bother apologizing? These guys were on a roll.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Car Over The Lake Album 5 Feb 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I first purchased this album on cassette back in '75. I have a vast album/cd/cassette collection but I would have to say this is one of the best albums ever. If you want variety, this album has it. I definitely am not a big country fan but you can't help to like this album and particularly this group. Probably one of the most underrated groups of all time. For the gentleman wanting to know who sings: If I Only Knew, From Time To Time, Spaceship Onion, Jackie Blue, and Mr. Powell. His name is Larry Lee. Whippoorwill is my favorite song on this album. Great music particularly with the music/groups we have today. You can almost feel their enthusiasm towards their music in their songs. Definitely a great choice.

4.0 out of 5 stars car over the lake album - even the name's great. 4 Feb 2004
By Sean C. Lamkin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Being 18, most would figure that i've never heard of these guys, but their wrong. i discovered this daredevil album along with about 4 more in my dad's old vinyl collection, and let me tell you, it blew me away. "if i only knew" is a great song, but "mr. powell" is the definate best on this album. This record is a must for any country-rock-bluegrass fan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now, there's a car with spark plugs 12 Dec 2002
By Geoffrey Halston - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is a group that captured the country-rock sound. Although I only gave it four stars, it is still a great album. I'm just not a country fan. However, I don't know the names of the singers, but whoever it is that sings "Jackie Blue" and "If I Only Knew" has a very catchy sound, and it is interesting how this singer fits in. Whoever this singer is, he could easily make a great solo album. I recently heard "Jackie Blue" on the radio, and so I went looking on Amazon for the album, and saw this album which I used to have in the 70's. The entire reason I bought this album was for the song "If I Only Knew." I hadn't heard that song since the 70's, and, hearing it now, it is still as catchy as it was then. It is also, lyrically, a great song about the uncertainty of relationships.
