Burns, Randy / Sky Dog Band

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Burns, Randy / Sky Dog Band - Evening Of The Magician Evening Of The Magician
Psych New - LP 1089 ESP
Sealed 1968 Stereo Original. "Randy Burns' Second Album Is An Enormous Improvement Over His 1967 Debut, Of Love And War. That Album, While Fine For What It Was, Included Too Many Covers Of Songs By Burns' Contemporaries In The Greenwich Village Folk Scene To Show What The Singer/Songwriter Was Capable Of. This Album, Which Features 10 Good To Great Burns Originals, Is Far Superior And Much More Personal Feeling. Burns' New Backing Trio, The Sky Dog Band, Provide Sympathetic And Low-Key Backing On Keyboards (Mat Kastner), Bass And Flute (Bruce Samuels) And Percussion (John O'Leary). The Acid Folk Settings Are Similar To Those Of Burns' ESP-Disk Labelmates Pearls Before Swine, But His Solid, Simple Songs Lack Tom Rapp's Psychedelic Flightiness. (This Is Either A Good Or Bad Thing Depending On One's Point Of View.)" Stewart Mason, AMG.... more details

Burns, Randy / Sky Dog Band - Still On Our Feet Still On Our Feet
Psych New - LP PD 5049 Polydor
Sealed 1973 Original With Promo Sticker On The Cover. “Randy Burns' Last Album Is His Best Since His Days On ESP-Disk, A Fine Slab Of Country-Rock Occasionally Comparable To Michael Nesmith's Early-'70s Work. There's A Certain Sense Of Fatalism Peeking Through Some Of The Songs, Suggesting That His Retirement From The Recording Industry Wasn't Exactly Forced Upon Him. The Manic Bluegrass-Tinged Opener, "Radio Song," Is A Flat-Out Dismissal Of The Medium, Effectively Admitting Defeat At The Hands Of The Commercial Marketplace, And The Closing "Seventeen Years On The River" Feels Like A Farewell. In Between, However, Burns And His Band, Featuring Longtime Cohort Matt Kastner On Guitar And Newer Recruit David Tweedy On Keyboards, Play With Good Humor, Intelligence, And Surprising Fleetness; For An Album Recorded In A Time And Genre That Were The Epitome Of Mellowness, Still On Our Feet Is A Nimble, Sprightly, And Satisfying Listen. No One Will Ever Mistake Randy Burns & The Sky Dog Band For The Ramones, But Those Who Think That '70s Country-Rock Was Too Quaalude-Dependent To Rock Should Have A Listen To Songs Like "Maryann." Burns' Good-To-Great Songs Predominate, But The Album's Highlights Include Tweedy's Two Songwriting Contributions, The Poco-Like "Waverly Road" And "Pick The Saddest Songs," And An A Cappella Version Of The Old Folk Standard "Darcy Farrow."” – Stewart Mason, AMG... more details
