Album Review

Bruce Eder [allmusic.com]

This is a good record, though not the Leo Kottke album to start with, as it is not representative of his usual work -- it's mostly a vocal record, and a very country-flavored record at that, with Kottke's baritone, reminiscent in some ways of Leonard Cohen (and even moving into what one might consider Jim Morrison territory), serving as the dominant instrument on six of the ten tracks. His flashy 12-string playing and Cal Hand's Dobro do come to the fore on ''Tilt Billings and the Student Prince.'' Tom T. Hall and Ron Elliott of the Beau Brummels are among the songwriters represented. Among the intrumentals, ''A Good Egg'' is just the kind of light-fingered, light-textured virtuoso piece that one buys a Leo Kottke album expecting to find, and much of the rest shows off his talents in some unexpected directions.
