Entertainment Reviews:

Spin - p.87
3 stars out of 5 -- "Au courant guests add twang and sparkle, but never get in Elliott's way."
Entertainment Weekly - p.69
"[A] vivid postcard from a guy who always found rambling more interesting than the record biz." -- Grade: B+
Q - p.111
3 stars out of 5 -- "Now 74, he welcomes you with shaky voice but steady strumming hand to his world of wry, bluesy poetry and shaggy dog tales."
Down Beat - p.66
3 stars out of 5 -- "Elliot stands tallest when either ramping up emotion with forays into his upper register or matching guest Lucinda Williams in heartache."
No Depression - p.106
"All you need to hear, really, is Elliott's assured guitar picking and that voice of his -- scratchy and weathered like paint peeling from the side of a storm-swept, sun-baked barn."
Mojo (Publisher) - p.114
3 stars out of 5 -- "Given folk's earth-to-earthy ways, it's mostly about death....[Elliott is] still nimble on guitar..."

Product Description:

For a folk legend who's been kicking around since the 1950s, releasing a new album in the 21st century is impressive enough in itself. However, Ramblin' Jack Elliott's I STAND ALONE, so titled for its solo man-and-guitar format, is an affecting, incisive work regardless of chronology. A disciple and running buddy of Woody Guthrie, Elliott was always a rough-and-ready performer, but five decades down the line his voice has a worn, ragged quality that's the aural equivalent of an antique wooden rocking chair. The minimalist production wisely underscores that fact, leaving Elliott plenty of room to ramble in a manner that feels just as comfortable and inviting as that chair. No guest stars or crossover attempts here, just a seasoned veteran doing what he does best, with dignity and style to spare.
