5.0 out of 5 stars It's been a very long wait., 1 Oct. 2001

This review is from: Tom Rush/Take A Little Walk With Me (Audio CD)
Half of this two-fer is one of the true lost classics of the folk-rock era. "Take a Little Walk with Me" is probably the best recording Tom Rush ever made... and that's saying something. On vinyl, the album was divided into an electric side and an acoustic side. The electric side featured, among other great studio musicians- Al Kooper on guitar and on piano the mysterious and never heard from again Roosevelt Gook, aka Bob Dylan. The album got its name from Tom's definitive version of "Who Do You Love." George Thorogood could only dream to sound as downright nasty and demonic... and then Tom turns his voice angelic sweet on the very next cut, the Buddy Holly classic, "Love's Made a Fool of You." But the real beauty of this album is the acoustic side. This was where I learned "Statesboro Blues," before there was an Allman Brothers Band. Tom's owns Erik Von Schmidt's "Joshua gone Barbados." It remains one of my all time favorite recordings. This album shows why there was not only the popularity for folk music and folk singers in the late 60's/early 70's, but the timelessness of the genre and the transcendence of roots music. Tom Rush had the uncanny ability to take other people's songs and make them his own. A great voice and a helluva guitar player. Half of this two-fer is a bonafide classic. The other half is just great. It's been a very long wait, but well worth it.
