A one groove album, and that's not meant as a criticism. Like the Cowboy Junkies or Blue Nile, it's the sort of album you could put on random select and not get jolted out of place. Guest stars include Neil Young, Blue Nile, Neville Bros, members of REM, but this is always RR's album. Amazing production, incredible subtle guitar and singing, this is one of my top ten.

Recorded in New Orleans, this 1991 release was Robertson's second solo album, with outstanding musicianship throughout, and exceptionally good material.
His unique sound gets a little flavor of Louisiana in this recording, with help from artists like the Neville brothers, and most of the tracks boast terrific horn arrangements (by Wardell Quezergue, except on "Day of Reckoning", which is by Mark Isham). All the songs are written by Robertson, and are laced with his brilliant guitar work, and his smoky, husky voice is always a soothing delight to listen to.
Highlights for me are "Day of Reckoning", about a first time love gone astray ("Tangled twisted strands of love / Hanging from above"), and "Sign of the Rainbow", an atmospheric, mystical song about knowing "The silence between the words".
Two singles culled from this album were "Go Back to Your Woods" ("Come here trying to make a connection / Must have a bad sense of direction"), and "What about Now" ("We grow up so slowly and grow old so fast").
Robertson's creative genius has flourished since The Band's "The Last Waltz", and continues to grow with film scores and several solo CDs to his credit. His music is always marked by excellence, and a singular vision.
The booklet insert has all the lyrics and recording information, and the total time is 54'55.

This collection originally released in 1991 is the follow-up to his eponymous titled album from 1987, which owed a great deal to "U2" with the under current of rock sounding tracks.

This time Mr Robertson has gone more for a "laid back" style, more of a collection of soundscapes and textures than straightforward song writing.
This he pulls off with the help of some star guest musicians, starting with the opening track "Night Parade" which has Jerry Marotta playing drums.
Mr Marotta has played in the past with the likes of "Steely Dan" and Peter Gabriel to name a few of the musicians he has played for.

On further inspection of the sleeve notes you will find the lies of Paul Moore on keyboards from the "Blue Nile" on the following track "Hold Back the Dawn" adding his signature keyboard sound, which adds sonic texture this is then counter pointed by the sound of Mr Robertson's solo guitar playing along with Rick Danko's from "Robbie's old group "The Band" backing vocals.

The next track in the running order was co-written by the great piano player Bruce Hornsby, this song is one of the stand-out tracks of the album with the organ playing of "Art Neville" and the horn arrangement of Wardell Quezergue making the song stand out from the previous tracks.

"Soap Box Preacher" will make followers of Neil Young stand up and take notice because if you listen very carefully you will hear him singing background vocals on this track.

"Day of Reckoning(burin' for you)" is another of the tracks on this album that benefits from the Paul Moore of the "Blue Nile" fame playing keyboards, along with the horn arrangement of Mark Isham, Mr Isham is a trumpet player who has played for the likes of David Sylvian and Joni Mitchell" in his long career.

I think this is one of Robbie Robertson's finest efforts, with some stand out tracks that match what he did with The Band. Also surprising how different the whole thing is from anything he did with the Band. Highly recommended!

For me i need to hear music that excites and thrills me. This collection does none of this. His recent work is far better.
