Product Details


Product Description

2011 album from the Canadian Rock quartet, the first unsigned band to ever grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. These four Rock 'n' Rollers play a laid-back, no-frills Psychedelic Blues Rock that sounds like it was born and raised in the '70s. 15 tracks.

4.0 out of 5 stars Looks, sounds and feels like the real thing Aug. 31 2011
By LeBrain HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Like many of you, I first heard The Sheepdogs via the excellent single "I Don't Know", a rollicking journey through territory pioneered by The Guess Who and Neil Young. And what a cool Canadian success story, what with that Rolling Stone cover and all.

I bought the album based on that one song, and I'm glad that I did. It's a really cool mellow rock album. It sounds as if it came right out of 1969. It sounds (and looks, check out those beards) very authentic to the period. I am impressed. I really like it.

Highlights for me include:
"Please Don't Lead Me On", much in the same vein as the single, but with piano too
"I Don't Get By" which has a very country (or even Led Zep III) vibe
"Sounthern Dreaming" which reminds me of the Allmans, CCR and The Band all at once
"Soldier Boy" probably the most rocking song on the album
"Catfish 2 Boogaloo" kind of even reminds me of a simpler version of Cream at times
And, the whole medley. These four mini-songs all meld together seamlessly kind of like a really brief version of Abbey Road side two.

The only song I dislike is the title track "Learn and Burn". Not into the vocal hook at all.

Good album though, and I want to find out more about this band.

4 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Refreshing change July 11 2011
By WSH
Format:Audio CD
The Sheepdogs are a combination of Burton Cummings, Steve Miller Band, a bit of CCR and a dash of Almond Brothers. Every track brings back good old rock music memories. This is, by far, the best new artist that I have heard in the past decade.

2.0 out of 5 stars Got "Burned" and "Learned" with this one Oct. 5 2014
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD, and their self-titled "The Sheepdogs" CD after hearing them perform "I Don't Know" from this CD on a Grey Cup half-time show, because: they're Canadian, and they sounded like they have a sound similar to BTO/CCR. But after hearing the whole CD, the rest of the songs don't live up, except for a terrific instrumental called, "Slim Pickens". It is by far the best song on an otherwise mostly mediocre CD. "I Don't Know" is a good song with a BTO sound, as is Rollo Tomasi, and Slim Pickens sounds like classic CCR. But that's pretty well it.

5.0 out of 5 stars play & love June 22 2013
Format:LP Record|Verified Purchase
what a great record! I am extremely happy with this purchase, like buying a record from the old days. It plays so well, the music is fantastic and brings back the feeling of the early 70's in a way I don't think any band from this generation could possibly do. The record itself plays as smooth as a whistle, although far greater sounding than any whistle I'll ever hear

5.0 out of 5 stars More great music
A renascence to the much loved sound of the 60's + 70's. Good grove, touch of psychedelia-a very familiar sound.

5.0 out of 5 stars Can't turn it off
Literally cannot take this out of the player. It just cycles through all of the songs and they are all great. If you hear one that you like, you will love the whole album.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the classics!
Learn & Burn is a classic album that could only be compared to other classics like the Hip - Up To Here; Led Zeppelin II; Fleetwood Mac - Rumours; the Guess Who - American Woman. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars The Soul Is Back In Rock
Not so keen about techno & rap? Long for the days when rock
had some soul rather than sounding like every group who's
music seems to come out the same old cookie cutter... Read more
