Six years separate Bob Weir's second solo album, HEAVEN HELP THE FOOL, from its 1972 predecessor, so he was apparently not chomping at the bit to break his Grateful Dead shackles in the interim. Accordingly, this is a much more laid-back endeavor than ACE, and has much less (read: absolutely no) Dead involvement. Instead of backing himself with his old pals as he did on ACE, Weir surrounds himself with first-call LA session musicians here. Consequently, the sound is much slicker and more polished. The rough-around-the-edges, rootsy sound of ACE is supplanted by a smooth, pop-oriented sound more akin to the contemporaneous work of Jackson Browne or Boz Scaggs (with whom FOOL shares some musicians). While most of the material was written by Weir with his longtime lyricist John Barlow, the Dead singer/guitarist does nod to his roots with covers of Lowell George's "Easy to Slip" and the Smokey Robinson-penned R&B classic "I'll Be Doggone."
