Good Music! Bad Taste!

JohnD

The music on this "album" is great. It is a faithful reproduction of the concert (I was there). I have never forgiven Ms. Ball for having a picture on the inside of this CD (which was recorded at the Sierra Nevada Brewery) from a bar prominently displaying a beer sign from "the king of beers". Poor taste.

Bobby Charles: The In-A-While Crocodile

By Lenny Kaye, Contributor

Robert Charles Guidry was leaving a diner in his native Louisiana when he heard the words that would forever make him Bobby Charles. "See you later, alligator," the 17-year-old jive-talked to a friend, only to hear, like a gospel call-and-response, "In a while, crocodile" from a neighboring patron. He had been playing teen soirees with a combo called the Cardinals (no relation to the r&b vocal group of the same name) in the small town of… more »

They Say All Music Guide

Marcia Ball, born on the Texas/Louisiana border, has long been a superb live performer, delivering her swampy blend of zydeco, blues and gritty R&B with all the force of a Saturday night locomotive, and her many fans have been crying for a live album for years, and now, finally, she’s delivered it. Recorded in September 2004 at the Sierra Nevada Brewing Company in Chico, CA as part of the Sierra Center Stage series broadcast on PBS, Marcia Ball Live: Down the Road also serves as a kind of greatest-hits set, with Ball and her gritty, horn-driven road band blasting through favorites that span her career. Make no mistake, Ball comes to party, and from the blistering stomp of “Big Shot” that opens the album, she hardly lets up, and even when she does ease it down, as she does on her wonderful version of Randy Newman’s gorgeous “Louisiana 1927,” you can still feel the heat of the swamp between the lines. Her zydeco-fueled original, “That’s Enough of That Stuff,” is a clear highlight, as is “It Hurts to Be in Love,” which features a guest duet vocal from Angela Strehli. Ball’s road band is tested and solid, providing a gutsy backdrop to her driving piano lines and steamrolling vocals. With the good-time, sassy energy on display here, Down the Road serves as an ideal introduction to Marcia Ball in her truest environment, live on-stage, and for her longtime fans, it is an album they have long been anticipating. A bayou party in a box. – Steve Leggett
