Having met and heard Willis Alan back when he began in Austin in '72 it just grips me to my core to hear his wonderful music again. I can't believe he never released anything else in all of these years. My friends and I used to pile down to this little speak easy in the basement of the Dobie Mall to hear him whenever he came to play. It was such a neat, personal, intimate setting to get to know him and his music. He was just one of us. Now, 37 years later, I just missed him playing here in San Antonio at a music circle and am sick about it. We caught him at Bourne Stage about 15 years ago nd it was so good see him again. When I listen to his music I cry, because I am so quickly transported back to my youth when I first heard his ballads and was just beginning life out on my own. Good friends, wonderful music, and discovering love for the first time. It just doesn't get any better than that...!!!

I finally have Willis Alan Ramsey again. Listening to these songs for the first time in 25 years has brought back many great memories. I have my own little time machine that I can have transport me at any time. Lost my vinyl copy back in 1979 (one of those great memories took it along with everything else when she found out about one of those other great memories). This album is so fresh. It could have been made today. My friends love it. What a perfect combination of country, blues, folk ........or in other words........that special sound that is only Willis.

Finding this CD is very similar to finding a buried treasure. I was living in San Marcos, Tx. when this album first appeared along with others, such as B. W. (Buckwheat) Stevenson and Michael Murphy's (Martin was later added) "Cosmic Cowboy." The mythology of this album has grown extensibly as the years have passed. Trivia facts have abounded by those who remember this music. And let there be no mistake, it is great music, and a collectors album. There are no accolades worthy enough to bestow on this disc. There should be a sixth star to denote a masterpeice. Yes, I am proud to say I own a copy.

This may be the greatest album no one heard back in the late 60's and 70's. That Ramsey did not repeat is a shame. I believe he was still writing in recent times.

When this album came out, I was a college student and stoner listening to all manner of worthless music that has faded from the earth. I lost the LP to some bad breakup years later. I finally found the CD, and it was like the best friend I ever had walking in the door. I consider this to be one of the greatest albums of all time. Just a great, great, great collection of songs. Good to see you, Willis! Swear to god, I can't listen to Angel Eyes without going wet in the eyes. Time will do that to a man. I saw you in Athens, GA at the ''Last Resort'' in 70-something (hey, I said I was a stoner then) and we had a beer and talked about W. Guthrie. Please put out another collection soon.
