Overview

Hollywood Town Hall

In 1993 country rock wasn't the hottest of genres, but you'd never have guessed it by listening to Hollywood Town Hall, the Jayhawks' third album. Comparisons to groups like the Byrds and the Flying Burrito Brothers aren't that far off the mark, with singers Mark Olson and Gary Louris harmonizing sweetly (and often roughly) in the best Gram Parsons-Chris Hillman tradition. The Minneapolis group infuse their brand of country with heavy doses of rock and soul, especially on tunes such as the slinky "Waiting for the Sun" and the muscular rocker "Martin's Song." Unlike most modern-day country rockers and alt-country outfits, though, the Jayhawks are unfailingly melodic and can summon up moments of true beauty, such as "Take Me with You (When You Go)," which makes Hollywood Town Hall one of the more pop-leaning entries in the often rough-edged world of revisionist country.

from what i've heard, the jayhawks are alright with me. they're not country in a general country sort of way. they belong in more of the neil young/eagles sort of a vein. worth a listen...
