I was just visiting with Eric about the fact that I'm here when I'm not here, because when I try to navigate the board, I half-disappear like the Cheshire Cat and hover in that state.

I do kind of like watching Poopy Elmo, but I worry he's going to inspire a video. Are there any songs on the album that would lend themselves to that?

It wasn't something that was ordered but didn't ship--just circumstances. It's okay. Smile

I wasn't anywhere near a computer for the last several days, but wanted to recognize the occasion here as best I could. I hope it was a great day for you.

Apparently, he's still got "it", and "it" still resonates with quite a few of us.

That should liven up the liner notes.

It looks like it's at and above the goal. I was going to get a crowbar and see if I could get a nominal pledge on the books, but the numbers were good already.

I heard recently that at least 77 human beings agreed on something, which is always amazing. I was encouraged that it was motivated by an admiration for humility and concern for the poor.

Part of the charm of that album is that it pulls in a lot of the banter and interaction with the audience that's part of the live shows.

S. D. Young Review of "It's for You" 01-25-2013 08:55 Forum: CD & DVD Reviews


I'm coping & pasting a review I wrote for Mike Roe's "It's For You" album. ~Dale Young (Princeton, NJ)

OUTSTANDING LIVE SET!
This is a live 2-CD set with recordings from a 1997 tour, from 77's singer & guitarist Mike Roe. It's a mix of acoustic and electric performances (electric guitar, at least) - also featuring David Leonhardt (guitar) and Mark Harmon (bass) from the 77's, and Brian Meyers on percussion. Leonhardt also plays keyboards on one song ("This is the Way Love Is"). Three great things about this album:

1. Mike Roe's guitar playing. Nothing short of phenomenal. This album contains probably Mike's best blues work ever recorded. Amazing stuff on "Nobody's Fault But Mine" (closer to the Blind Willy Johnson recording than the Zeppelin version), and a blistering 3-minute guitar solo at the end of "Nuts for You." Excellent playing by both Mike and Dave on other songs too, including three instrumental pieces (Limelight, Mezzo, and John Lee's Blues).
2. The banter between Mike & Dave, and Mike & the audience. Sounds like they really recorded EVERYTHING on these sets. A lot of humor, funny moments & remarks from Mike - much of it in response to requests from people in the audience. Mike also shares a bit of personal background info on some of the songs & history of the 77's.
3. You get a wide variety of both Roe and 77's material, as well as some rare gems and a few oddballs. A total of 11 songs come from the 77's albums, "Drowning with Land in Sight" and "Sticks & Stones," and 5 songs come from Roe's "Safe as Milk" album. You also get a cool version of "King of the Road," a Hank Williams cover ("Beyond the Sunset"), an alternative version of "I Walk the Line" (the lyrics have been changed) and even a gospel selection ("Men Are So Busy"). And there's a great version of UUUU (from the indie-release, "More Miserable Than You'll Ever Be").

Also, my copy of this CD has a different album cover than the one currently shown on Amazon. I've got a picture of a naked 1-year old Mike Roe holding a telephone. The other cover looks like, I'm guessing, a picture of Mike's mom (but not sure about that).

FYI, the album title was chosen because these concerts were set up literally FOR the fans. In the liner notes Roe says he wanted to "pull together a tour that would be booked and promoted mostly by fans in whatever style and fashion they fancied, with no restrictions on the venue - be it bar, church, or alleyway, if warm bodies showed up, I'd be there to sing for them. . . most importantly, the fans picked nearly all of the songs we played every night - for the most part, each show was an all-request weekend." A pretty cool concept, I think. All told, this is an outstanding rock & roll album with some great blues and guitar playing, and a lot of good laughs. A must-have for any 77's or Mike Roe fan!
