The Very Best of Tom Rush: No Regrets

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Kerry Dexter
Arising out of the Harvard Square folk scene of the early '60s, Tom Rush wrapped his intimate, gravelly voice around the songs of Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell (her unsentimental breakup song, "Urge for Going," is included here) when they were just a couple of unknown Canadians playing for tips. Drawing from the blues ("Mobile-Texas Line" which shows off Rush's guitar power), the broadside tradition ("Galveston Flood"), and the best of contemporary songwriters (Jackson Browne's "Jamaica Say You Will"), Rush has explored the every facet of the folk scene through his three-decade-plus career. He's evolved into a songwriter of vision himself -- James Taylor, Garth ...

Arising out of the Harvard Square folk scene of the early '60s, Tom Rush wrapped his intimate, gravelly voice around the songs of Leonard Cohen and Joni Mitchell (her unsentimental breakup song, "Urge for Going," is included here) when they were just a couple of unknown Canadians playing for tips. Drawing from the blues ("Mobile-Texas Line" which shows off Rush's guitar power), the broadside tradition ("Galveston Flood"), and the best of contemporary songwriters (Jackson Browne's "Jamaica Say You Will"), Rush has explored the every facet of the folk scene through his three-decade-plus career. He's evolved into a songwriter of vision himself -- James Taylor, Garth Brooks, and Emmylou Harris have named his work influential in their musical careers. Listen to the mystical imagery of "The Dreamer," or the vivid landscape-framed emotional portraits in "River Song," a new cut recorded especially for this collection with backing vocals from Shawn Colvin and Mark Cohn. Tom Rush's career continues to flourish as his musical vision continues to evolve.
All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Columbia/Legacy's The Very Best of Tom Rush: No Regrets is the first comprehensive overview ever assembled of Tom Rush, one of the finest interpretive singers, and singer/songwriters, of the folk revival. The disc begins with "San Francisco Bay Blues," from his 1962 debut, Tom Rush at the Unicorn, and concludes with "River Song," a previously unreleased song recorded for the compilation in November 1998. Between those two tunes are 15 songs that touch on each of his albums. Since it's only a single-disc, 17-track compilation, there are inevitably some fan favorites missing, but what's most impressive about No Regrets is that it nevertheless conveys the scope of his career and accomplishments. Almost all of his major moments are here -- "On the Road Again," "Galveston Flood," "Joshua Gone Barbados," "No Regrets," "Lost My Driving Wheel" -- and while they're not sequenced in straight chronological order, they nevertheless capture the spirit of Rush and his music. The end result is a terrific compilation -- a perfect introduction for neophytes and a welcome reminder of Rush's talents for longtime fans.
