Gypsy Songman: A Life in Song ()


As he explains in the liner notes, sometime around 1985 Jerry Jeff Walker decided to bring his music up to date, and he put together a series of (mostly) acoustic sessions where he mixed old songs and new. The difference here is the benefit of state-of-the-art sonics, which result in a crystal-clear view of Walker's low-key folkie side. In hindsight, the album seems like a classic Unplugged session just slightly ahead of its time. High points include a version of "Mr. Bojangles" in which Walker, miraculously, does not sound even a bit jaded, plus there's a jaw-dropping electric guitar solo by longtime bandmate John Inmon. ~ Rovi Staff, Rovi Hide synopsis
