Raven presents on great value Double CD (and for the first time on CD ever in their entirety), three classic albums by Garland Jeffreys: 'Ghost Writer' (1977), 'One-Eyed Jack' (1978) and 'American Boy & Gir'l (1979) originally recorded for A&M Records. The enigmatic and inspirational singer / songwriter Jeffreys was Brooklyn-born and worked the nightclubs of Manhattan during the late-60s and early-70s and was an associate of Lou Reed and John Cale. His debut album for Atlantic featured gritty tales of New York street life while his most famous song 'Wild in the Streets' became a staple of FM radio. Jeffrey's unique blend of rock 'n' soul, blues and reggae earned him a loyal following. He issued these three albums at the height of his acclaim. Ghost Writer is considered to be his masterpiece, a genuinely literate and ambitious work of enduring worth. AllMusic Guide described it as "an album of striking urban songs that are both confessional and confrontational". He continues to record and tour to this day. With 30 tracks, 140 minutes of superb quality audio, detailed liner notes and color booklet this is an essential collection for the Classic Rock music enthusiast.

I could kick myself that I missed a chance to see Jeffreys at a very small, old theater venue recently because I had ticket to a 76'ers game that night. Doubly regretable because the Sixers @_$*$@!@! at this point.
"If Mao could see me now".
Have now seen in concert in Phoenix area twice in last year or so: once with Jerry Riopelle, once with Springsteen. KIddos today under 50 don't even know who they're looking at. He certainly brought the urban to the desert airwaves all those years ago.
He set the table.
