The Authorized Bootleg

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Ann Wickstrom
This is a keeper from the word "go." Recorded live in 1995 but not released until 1998 at Yoshi's in Oakland, CA, Robben Ford is joined by long-time Blue Line trio members Roscoe Beck on bass and Tom Brechtlein on drums, as well as Bill Boublitz on a baby grand piano. Although nearly all of the songs can be found on other Ford albums most are from Handful of Blues, one of the things that makes this jazzy recording so special is that Ford is playing only an acoustic guitar.

The Ray Charles gem "Don't Let the Sun Catch You Crying" which you WON'T find elsewhere is simply beautiful, and on Paul Butterfield's "Lovin' Cup," it's just Ford and his guitar. The brilliance of his playing and the reason behind why so many guitar players put him at the top of their list can be found in Ford's performance on this release, alternating between lead and rhythm. The Authorized Bootleg also has great albeit laid-back versions of "When I Leave Here" and "Tired of Talkin'." Highly, highly recommended.
