5.0 out of 5 stars Amazon Sampled The Five Weakest Songs On The Disk!!, March 9 2001
This review is from: Snake Bite Love (Audio CD)
What about the heartbreakingly beautiful 'Cote Blanche Bay?' Or the combination of 'Sunset ...' and the grief-stricken 'Madame Sosthene' which makes John Prine's 'Paradise' seem pale? Or the guaranteed cripple-healers 'Dancin ...' and 'Crawfish?' I can't believe you didn't sample 'One Kiss' ("I always ask about you, to find if you're asking about me"). Don't you people want to sell this CD? It isn't bad enough that Zach's music will never get airplay on a commercial radio station, so you people have to hide some of his best work in plain sight? Don't just list them, LISTEN TO THEM!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Renbourne as Musicologist, Nov. 7 1998
This review is from: The Black Balloon (Audio CD)
John Renbourn composed this album as a modern version of the eight standard musical forms of midieval Britain. Consisting solely of Renbourn's guitars, accompanied by traditional percussion instruments and a flute, it gives a completely new identity to the concept album. Listen late at night, with candles and red wine, and float away on "The Pelican" and "The Black Balloon." A fiery dance, the "Tarboulton" allows guitar and flute to show off. A classic.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timeless Tex/Mex R&B from the Master of World Music, Nov. 7 1998
This review is from: Borderline (Audio CD)
Possibly the closest World Music will ever come to Texas. From the reggae-inflected "Down in the Boondocks" to the rollicking polka "Girls From Texas" to the masterful reading of John Hiatt's "The Way We Make A Broken Heart," this one deserves to be sent along on the next Voyager launch.
