4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Gizmophobic VINE VOICE on 17 Jan 2010
Format: Audio CD
This is a solid album of blues covers initially recorded back in 1965. This was a time of white boys, (especially rich ones)being derided for imitating traditional blues artists like Robert Johnson, Big Joe williams etc.A bit rich when you consider what the Stones were doing but the critics gave this one a hard time. More than a little unfair in reterospect. Hammond has stuck to his blues guns for all these years and deserved better. He does slightly overdo the vocal at times but overall its a good listen. Of course you'd be better with Bo Diddley etc. but the bonus here is you get three members of the Band, Robertson on mean guitar, Helm on drums, Hudson on organ.
Also Charlie Musslewhite plays great harmonica and Mike Bloomfield piano. With friends like these who needs to be black?

I bought the lp of So Many Roads in 1965 or 66 and still get back to this great recording, for me it is the best electric blues album of all time, first the guitar playing of Robbie Robertson is absolutely incredebile, I never heard a Telecaster to be play like that, only for this recording Robbie Robertson should be recognise has one of the master of the Telecaster, he is alone with that playing WOW,,, and what about John Hammond his voice never been so true and sensual I had all of his cds and this one is for me is best. If you do not have Some Many Roads go and buy it you will never be deceive it is a masterpiece. Gaétan Ayotte (Québec)

What a Great line up of musicians: Robbie Robertson,Garth Hudson, Levon Helm,plus a few other special guests.This lp from 1965 really Rocks! Great Rockin' R&B! The cd is very good,however the sound could have been recorded stronger/punchier.Otherwise-Highly Recommded!

Great Classic Blues and Robbie Robertson's best playing! 2 Sep 2000
By Joan May - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This is one of my favorite blues CD's and much of the reason is Robbie Robertson's incredible edgy guitar playing, which I don't think he ever equaled in his work with The Band or elsewhere. Other members of The Band are also on this CD -- Garth Hudson, Levon Helm -- as well as the already mentioned Mike Bloomfield (inexplicably on piano, but I don't think even he could have surpassed Robertson on guitar in this set) and Charlie Musselwhite. John Hammond's dramatic vocals are great as is his choice of some of the best blues tunes in existence. Highly recommended for all fans of blues, and blues-guitar.

Kick ___ white boy blues! 8 Oct 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
John Hammond's strength is not songwriting. Rather, his strength is effectively covering and interpreting old blues songs into a more contemporary setting. This is John Hammond's best early album from 1965. The record features ace players such as Charlie Musselwhite on harmonica as well as future Band members Levon Helm and Garth Hudson. The playing is strong and Hammond gives his best white boy blues growl. The record is pure electric blues, none of the acoustic wimpy stuff. Hammond's vocals may seem a bit parodical because it sounds like he is trying too hard, but it is good music nonetheless. Check out his version of Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?"

AWFUL sound--DON'T BUY THE 1993 REISSUE 13 Jan 2009
By Elliot Knapp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, I can't yet comment on the quality of the music on this 1993 reissue--there is so much crackling and distortion throughout EVERY SINGLE song that the entire CD is totally unlistenable. And I bought it new! I'm not someone who nitpicks a whole lot about quiet or flat or "old" remasters, but the faults with this edition are overwhelming. I couldn't even make it through, the distortion was too overbearing and distracting. What were they thinking allowing this to reach the shelves of stores? I immediately returned my copy to Amazon.com, and luckily received my money back.

Now, as to a reissue that is actually listenable, I sampled a few of the songs on iTunes and they sounded fine; it's still the same label (Vanguard) but the release date is 2005. I haven't yet purchased the 2005 reissue from Amazon yet, but will be sure to comment when I do. Unfortunately this review will probably show on both due to Amazon's dim-witted review system AI. Whatever you do, don't buy the slightly cheaper 1993 issue!

Great CD- terrbile sound 29 Sep 2008
By Mario Karlovic - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Recently picked up two copies of this CD from Amazon. The sound is awful on both copies- lots of crackling in the background. It almost sounds as if it were mastered from an poor quality record. This ain't exactly a hot seller- perhaps this is an old pressing that is a number of years old. Stay away from Amazon's inventory. Another retailer's inventory or an import pressing might be better.

You aren't just kidding! 16 Mar 2000
By Eric T. Dean - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Check out "Who Do You Love"! It's got Charlie Musselwhite at his best, and Mike Bloomfield on piano (Bloomfield seemed to be a victim of excess, but as a sideman or with Butterfield, he came through as a tremendous student of the blues and quite a talent in his own right!). And it just doesn't get any better than "So Many Roads." John Hammond really hit his groove with this record/CD.
