Even Cowgirls Get the Blues ~ John Cale
5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing CD, 14 Feb 2014
Cale at his best. Companion piece to Sabotage but more interesting. Will appeal to fans of the Velvet Underground, Patti Smith and The Stooges. Less hard rock and more NY art rock than Sabotage.

3.0 out of 5 stars Better on Spotify., 11 Jan 2014
The album is not bad and has its moments particularly when it touches on the funky or ethnic influences. Sometimes it veers touches late eighties/early nineties grebo which cheapens it. The packaging is fantastic. I think the vinyl mastering is too digital and sounds like a worse quality version of the Spotify edition. It would benefit from an old style pre digital vinyl master. The opening song Run To Your Mama is dreadful but Let It Bleed is simply wonderful and worth the price of the album it itself.

The Asheton brothers sound fantastic, stuck in a time warp of 1973, with great tone and riffs perfectly fitting Iggy's voice and lyrics.....they sound like young men not men fast approaching the pensioner years. The songs are real good, full of dumb lyrics, more cosmopolitan… Read more
