5.0 out of 5 stars superb, 28 Jun 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jesse Winchester & Third Down, 110 To Go (Audio CD)
This brilliant cd reissue from Edsel contains the criminally neglected Jesse winchester's first two albums. They are both indispensable, but his eponymous debut album is one of the best debut albums ever released. Produced by Robbie Robertson in Canada in 1970 it features amongst others Levon Helm on drums and mandolin, Robbie Robertson on guitar and Al Cherney on violin. The second album is it's follow-up, released in 1972 and the musicians here include Amos Garrett on guitar, Bob Boucher on bass and Gord Fleming on piano. Jesse Winchester has a lovely laconic singing voice, and he writes interesting observant melodic songs. This is a must have in my view, and on top of it all the remastering is well done, and the cd booklet which is 24 pages long includes all the lyrics.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great 2 on 1, 4 Jan 2014

This review is from: Jesse Winchester & Third Down, 110 To Go (Audio CD)
Two great (originall) albums on one disc. I've got the latter on vinyl but I've never heard his debut (the former) before. Two classic albums especially the latter which is all acoustic. The former has two classic Jesse Winchester staples on it, the two being 'Biloxi' and 'The Brand New Tennessee Waltz.' 'Biloxi' was covered by Tom Rush on his eighth album 'Wrong End of the Rainbow' and Matthews Southern Comfort and the Walker Brothers covered 'The Brand New Tennessee Waltz' on their albums 'Later That Same Year' and 'Lines.'

5.0 out of 5 stars overlooked classics, 1 Aug 2014

This review is from: Jesse Winchester & Third Down, 110 To Go (Audio CD)
The 70s were a golden time for one man and his guitar . James Taylor , Paul Simon , John Prine , John Martyn , Steve Goodman , Bert Jansch etc . etc . Jesse Winchester is often unfairly omitted from this canon . This bargain twofer contains his first two albums and they still sound brilliant today . The material on Third Down covers the strangeness of being a new Dad as accurately as anything ever recorded . The eponymous first album has the justly celebrated Brand New Tennessee Waltz and Biloxi . It also contains the beautiful Black Dog , familiar to viewers of Friday night Dad rock on BBC4 where it is regularly mangled by a dreadful outfit called Babe Ruth with a female singer recently escaped from the local asylum's Bertolt Brecht production . Here you get it as it meant to sound - absolutely haunting .

5.0 out of 5 stars 40 years on more of a masterpiece, and in 40 years time, 12 Jun 2014

This review is from: Jesse Winchester & Third Down, 110 To Go (Audio CD)
Especially Third Down: It has advice for life in 2 minute poems - it's easy to pity yourself/ but it's sort of dangerous fun - and for a new father : I won't get in your way, let me look down from above.
All his songs are kind and joyful, even the sad ones: 'You remember me' for example. Jesse, we remember you

This review is from: Jesse Winchester & Third Down, 110 To Go (Audio CD)
The hugely underrated, late Jesse Winchester's brilliant first albums. Listen to them. They are in a class of their own for lyrics and melodies.
