Rolling Stone - 8/5/71, p.43"...a good example of why Wainwright is head and shoulder above other songwriters...Wainwright's songs explore the outer limits of loneliness and unhappiness...but it's accomplished with a rare musical integrity and a lack of self-righteousness..."
Rolling Stone - 10/26/72, p.58"..posessed of a marvelous sense of humor, both whimsical and earthy...Wainwright's singing has never been more restrained and moving...a comic genius who has it in him to become the Chaplin of rock.."

In 1972, after two solid albums of smartly written songs that were at once poetically resonant and wiseguy tipsy, Loudon Wainwright released ALBUM III, a collection that opened with what proved to be his biggest hit to its point, "Dead Skunk." A song of seemingly little consequence, "Dead Skunk" became a song that Wainwright was never able to escape over the ensuing decades. However, as chart hits do, the song exposed him to a much wider audience.
ALBUM III proved to be the right album for people to join the Loudon Wainwright fanbase. The singer/songwriter is backed by a rocking little combo that kicks up country dust with urban grit; a track like "East River Princess" is not too far removed from the sound of the Band. This album also includes Wainwright's enduring "Red Guitar" and "Drinking Song."
