Review by Chris Nickson

Geoff Muldaur's 1998 "comeback" album, Secret Handshake, was an undiluted delight, raising great hopes for this. And he certainly has the names to help him, talent like David Lindley, Wally Ingram, Dave Alvin, fiddler Richard Greene, Kate and Anna McGarrigle, and even trombonist Roswell Rudd. The songs themselves are a mix of classics like Sleepy John Estes' "Drop Down Mama," Charley Patton's "Some of These Days (I'll Be Gone)," and the standard "Prairie Lullaby," among others, along with some Muldaur originals, including his continuation of "Got to Find Blind Lemon." In other words, all the elements that made his last disc so magical are in place. So why doesn't this work in quite the same way? It's a good question, and certainly not easily answered. Maybe it's the fact that Secret Handshake was so good, the expectations for this record were impossibly high -- and make no mistake, this is an excellent disc -- too high to achieve. Or maybe the extra magic that was there before just didn't arrive here. "Wait 'Til I Put on My Robe" is a prime example. Based around Van Dyke Parks' pump organ, with guitar from Alvin and harmonies from the McGarrigles, it's an offbeat arrangement, and lovely. But it never quite gels, as if it's trying too hard. Perhaps the best cut is a laid- back version of Eric Von Schmidt's "Light Rain"; in comparison, the country & western "Prairie Lullaby" with French horn, clarinet, and bassoon seems wilfully eccentric, as does the inclusion of "Beautiful Isle of Nowhere." It's good, but falls short of greatness. Still, good by Muldaur is superb by most people.

Geoff & Maria Muldaur - Sweet Potatoes

Geoff Muldaur — Autor renovcevic @ 20:37

1971 - Reprise Records

In the midst of leaving the Jim Kweskin Jug Band and beginning the juggernaut that would be the solo career of Maria Muldaur, the happily singing and swinging couple made several sides which made expert use of a loose-knit group of players who had grown into masters of the folk revival arts. At times the choice of material on this album is unfortunately lazy; "Havana Moon" was a song that not even Chuck Berry himself could complete without boredom setting in, and the efforts here don't pay off much better. At the same time, the players here really don't need much more than the most basic framework from which to jump off and they are hard at it, pushing the music forward with a sense of purpose that inevitably helped it earn its hard-fought respectability. As a whole, Sweet Potatoes is something of a masterwork, rich and revealing, possessing the contagious enthusiasm of young musicians finding a personal voice in the rich traditions of the past as well as the relaxed sophistication that develops when these players are no longer novices. The Geoff and Maria Muldaur combination, when it was working, was also very special, a challenging partnership that also was something of an inviting nucleus to the players with the talent to be drawn into the fold. This album contains some of the better playing of harmonica man Paul Butterfield, removed from the hyper-drive excess of his blues bands. "Kneein' Me" and "Cordelia" are among the song highlights. © Eugene Chadbourne, All Music Guide

Geoff & Maria Muldaur - Pottery Pie

Geoff Muldaur — Autor renovcevic @ 20:34


Year: 1971
Label: Hannibal

Review by Brian Beatty

The second of just two albums to be released by the easier-going American equivalent of Richard & Linda Thompson (without the brooding gloom and biting irony), this set includes some virtuoso folk-blues performances, as well as the version of "Brazil" made famous in Terry Gilliam's movie of the same name. Though the ten tunes here are all covers, Geoff & Maria Muldaur treat each as if molded from clay of their own making, just as they had old traditional numbers as members of the Jim Kweskin Jug Band. It's probably no coincidence that this album would eventually find its way to Joe Boyd's Hannibal label. It's a collection that suggests the Richard & Linda Thompson albums he would release throughout the '70s. Unfortunately, Pottery Pie is only available on CD as a pricey, difficult-to-find import. For many fans, it will be more than worth the money and effort.
