5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a very long wait. 1 Oct 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Half of this two-fer is one of the true lost classics of the folk-rock era. "Take a Little Walk with Me" is probably the best recording Tom Rush ever made... and that's saying something. On vinyl, the album was divided into an electric side and an acoustic side. The electric side featured, among other great studio musicians- Al Kooper on guitar and on piano the mysterious and never heard from again Roosevelt Gook, aka Bob Dylan. The album got its name from Tom's definitive version of "Who Do You Love." George Thorogood could only dream to sound as downright nasty and demonic... and then Tom turns his voice angelic sweet on the very next cut, the Buddy Holly classic, "Love's Made a Fool of You." But the real beauty of this album is the acoustic side. This was where I learned "Statesboro Blues," before there was an Allman Brothers Band. Tom's owns Erik Von Schmidt's "Joshua gone Barbados." It remains one of my all time favorite recordings. This album shows why there was not only the popularity for folk music and folk singers in the late 60's/early 70's, but the timelessness of the genre and the transcendence of roots music. Tom Rush had the uncanny ability to take other people's songs and make them his own. A great voice and a helluva guitar player. Half of this two-fer is a bonafide classic. The other half is just great. It's been a very long wait, but well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars "SHERMAN, SET THE WAY-BACK MACHINE FOR 1966." 1 Nov 2001
Format:Audio CD
I won't attempt a critical review of this reissue. My scratched old copy of Take a Little Walk With Me has moved with me more than 20 times in the last 35 years. I love the album. The reissue has been beautifully remastered and packaged. The only copy of "Tom Rush" I've ever had is a one-off cassette a friend made for me. It's great to hear the songs in their original sonic brilliance. Needless to say, I recommend the combination to anyone who likes the folk/acoustic rock sound that first surfaced in the mid 60s.

5.0 out of 5 stars still fresh after all these years 23 Oct 2001
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
These two albums, available now for the first time in ages, are essential listening for anyone interested in folk roots and blues music. Perhaps the 'Tom Rush' album is the best of its type ever made, whilst 'Take a little walk...' is a fascinating document of an artist developing the style that was to prove so popular with his 'Circle Game' and subsequent albums. What is so pleasing is the freshness of these recordings. The quality of the playing and singing is superb and whilst they take you right back to the 60's, they don't sound dated in anyway. I saw Tom Rush at Cambridge (UK) folk festival in 1968. He did an afternoon spot devoted to songs from these two albums and it was one of the greatest performances I've seen. In the evening he concentated more on the recently issued 'Circle Game', another memorable concert. These albums are as fresh as that wondeful summer performance back in 68. These are terrific, essential albums. Truly groundbreaking and probably never surpassed by Rush throughout his career. The sleeve notes are great and attractive. Buy it!!

5.0 out of 5 stars No regrets here 2 Aug 2013
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Though the Urban Folk Revival cut off after 1965 that was just the first phase.It carried on from 1968 into the singer songwriter era.Rush was also a writer and has been credited with ushering in the new era with his song No Regrets a hit for both the Walker Brothers in the 70s and Midge Ure in the 80s.However Rush had been a part of the Urban Folk Revival in 1963 and cut his first 2 albums of Appalachian ballads before signing with Elektra which is what this CD is-the first 2 albums for the label
This Elektra double is of 2 albums which are full of covers which is for my money a plus factor.The entire Urban Folk Revival was about covers and in spite of singer songwriters it was still possible to find the same kind of covers the New Christy Minstrels had done ie folk songs if you looked hard enough
Which is how I found Lindy Michaels and Florence Warner who both did nothing but covers

5.0 out of 5 stars Take A Little Walk With Tom Rush 14 Mar 2014
By Jim Schallock - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
During the 1960's I was a lover of folk music. I first bought these two record albums in 1967, and they became my two favorite folk/folk rock Record albums. Tom has a very good baritone voice and is accompanied by excellent acoustic, slide, and electric guitar. I highly recommend this CD of my two Tom Rush albums.
