4.0 out of 5 stars West Coast Blues 30 Mar 2001
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
Released originally in 1976, this is a classic of American AOR- stuffed full of great songs. Jackson Browne produced this album, and critics said at the time- a little unkindly- that he'd now done what he was born to do. At a time when american popular music for adults was awash with The Eagles and their imitators, Zevon came along -and in the great tradition of Dylan and Springsteen before him- took a tired old genre and kicked it's ass. On the surface this album can appear like a lot of that late 70's 'Linda Ronstadt/ James Taylor' kind of stuff (Ronstadt incidentally recorded "Poor Poor Pitiful Me" and bizarrely "Carmelita") indeed the list of musicians reads like a who's who of LA's session heads.Scratch the surface though,because there's a lot more here than just impeccable playing. The majestic opener "Frank & Jessie James",the beautiful "Hasten Down The Wind,the hard drinking bravado of "I'll Sleep when I'm dead", and the stunning 'Beach Boys' close of "Desperados under the Eaves" to mention a few, but it's "Carmelita" that is the real prize; what appears at first to be a standard country rock ballad,turns the idea inside out-just hear it! If you like the afore mentioned Bob and Bruce, then this is definitely for you. Zevon followed this in '78 with "Excitable Boy" which included his signature "Werewolves of London" and since then has been on and off the boil, (not to mention in and out of rehab) until last years excellent "Life'll Kill Ya", but this was the start of what was to be the ecletic career of a true maverick.

5.0 out of 5 stars If only there were 6 Stars 1 May 2005
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
How do you sum up the career of Warren Zevon? Simply look at the 'session' musicians that back him. The names indicate why the music of Warren Zevon will last long after more popular music has disappeared.
His untimely death and the brilliance of his last album, The Wind, has resulted in greater interest in his back catalogue and, whilst many people will focus on the more accessible Excitable Boy, 5 stars in any book, the subtlety of songs such as Mohammeds Radio and Hasten Down the Wind, beautifully harmonised, and the self-deprecating acerbity of Carmelita make this album the benchmark for all Warren Zevon albums and, by natural extension due to his position as one of America's most infulential singer/songwriters, for the West Coast generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sleep well, Warren 8 Dec 2003
Format:Audio CD
Though he didn't know it at the time, Warren Zevon wrote a poignant epitaph to an extraordinary career, and recorded it on this amazing album. The Jack Daniels and alfafa rolls served at the recording sessions must have gone like hot cakes (excuse me), judging by the roll-call of West Coast luminaries - Jackson Browne, Bonnie Raitt, Stevie Nicks, Glenn Frey, Lindsey Buckingham, David Lindley. Although not featuring his "big hit" (Werewolves of London), every song on this album is a classic. Buy it. He's sadly missed, and ought to be remembered for his great music, and humour in the face of his imminent demise. When asked by David Letterman what he would do, now that he had terminal cancer, he said "enjoy every sandwich". Top man.
