4.0 out of 5 stars Leicester Bangs Review (2008):, 19 Feb 2011

Joe Ely - Live Cactus (Rounder)
Joe Ely might be the only direct living link between Buddy Holly and Joe Strummer (answers on a postcard), so it's always a treat to hear something new from the ex-Flatlander. That and the fact that he's remained remarkably consistent over the last 15 years of so.

Live Cactus is his latest, and captures Ely live at the Cactus Cafe in Austin with one of the all-tme great accordion players, Joel Guzman. The pair take on some of Ely's finest songs in a stripped down, acoustic setting, and it all sounds great. Ryan Bingham turns up at the death to help out on a version of Townes' "White Freightliner Blues". 8/10.

4.0 out of 5 stars Joe(l), 15 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Live Cactus! (Audio CD)
A great album - if Joe Ely had a typical style, this might exemplify it. I was fortunate to see Joe and Joel live in a small venue (Queens Hall) Edinburgh a few years back - absolutely superb, and covering much of this album's ground. Buy it.
