Round Trip: Live in L.A. [Bonus Tracks]

All Music Guide
This delightful live recording finds John McEuen former leader of the Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on-stage in his hometown, obviously completely at ease and spinning out a long program of tunes both standard "I Am a Pilgrim," "Sheik of Araby" and original "Good Old Boys Texas," "Night Flight". The focus is on instrumentals, with McEuen taking the lead on guitar and banjo, but he also sings a few including the inevitable "Mr. Bojangles" in his agreeably undistinguished voice. Surprises include a very attractive banjo arrangement of an old Muzio Clementi piano etude and a boot-stomping version of "Kiss" that probably makes the diminutive purple artist formerly known as Prince go into convulsions whenever if ever he hears it ...

Best of all are the Merle Travis songs and stories; McEuen's renditions of "Cannonball Rag" and "I Am a Pilgrim" are warm and wonderful. Highly recommended. [This version of Round Trip: Live in L.A

    Finally, a new CD for John McEuen fans....

    This is my favorite yet... Love the LIVE recording, puts you right there, enjoying the great music, and laughs, too. John is backed up by many friends, wonderful pickers all, and his son Jonathan (on guitar and vocals), too. And then....four timely brand new bonus tracks. Twenty fantastic tracks all together! Don't miss out on this one....

    I promise you will love this cd.

    This cd puts you in the front seat of a John McEuen & co. concert and hell in the back seat of his car too. You will love the sound.
