Editorial Reviews

Record Collector Magazine
Thoroughly-researched biography.
Froots
The author seems to have gathered every known fact, review and movement of Elliot in his long and illustrious career. . . . If and when Elliot gets to write his own take on his life, his task is made somewhat easier in that he only needs to cite one reference work for a detailed and accurate account of his life in music, and this is it.
Martin Jack Rosenblum
Elliott's life, so expertly researched and elegantly described in Hank Reineke's authorative Ramblin' Jack Elliot: The Never-Ending Highway reads like that — always rumpled, never on time and just casually mixing with those he influenced on the sidelines or at a distance.
