Jesse Colin Young

Vinyl Records and Rare LPs:

Jesse Colin Young - Light Shine Light Shine
Pop New - LP BS 2790 Warner
Sealed 1974 Original. “Whether It Was Creative Fervor Or Contractual Obligation, Jesse Colin Young Was Back With A New Album Only Six Months After His Commercial And Artistic Breakthrough With Song For Juli, And Though The Album Featured More Original Songs, Young Seemed To Be Stretching For Material, Turning The Three Tunes On Side One Into A "California Suite" With Lots Of Jazzy Instrumental Work. But The Writing Was Less Important Than The Playing, As Many Of Young's Backup Musicians -- Notably Drummer Jeffrey Myer, Keyboardist Scott Lawrence And Reed Player Jim Rothermel -- Had Been With Him For A While Now And Were Playing Like A Tight Band. Some Of The Songs Were Little More Than Weather Reports ("Grey Day") Or Travelogues ("Barbados"), And When Young Did Have A Message To Convey, As In The Title Song (Repeated From The Youngbloods' Good And Dusty Album), He Could Come Off As Preachy, But The Music Was So Delightful That None Of That Mattered Much. Fans Made It Young's Highest-Charting Album Yet, And It Ranks With Song For Juli As His Biggest Seller.” William Ruhlmann, All Music.... more details

Jesse Colin Young - The Highway Is For Heroes The Highway Is For Heroes
Pop Used - LP 661 115 Cypress
First Copy We Have Had In Stock In Ten Years. Rare 1987 Original. Partially Cut Corner (Jacket Has Been Scored Through, But Still Intact). “Jesse Colin Young Returned To Record-Making After Five Years With This Modestly Produced, Largely Acoustic Effort, On Which His Singing Had Taken On A Breathy Expressivenes And His Acoustic Guitar-Playing (Doubtless Due To Years Of Playing Solo Shows) Had Become More Dominant And Accomplished. Despite The Time Between Records, Young Did Not Fill The Album With New Originals -- Among The Nine Tracks, Three (T-Bone Walker's "T-Bone Shuffle," "Do It Slow," And "Before You Came") Were Remakes, One ("When You Dance") Was A Cover, And Two Others Were Co-Written. Those Two -- The Title Track, Which Young Wrote With Wendy Waldman, And "The Haster," On Which He Collaboraed With Bill Cuomo -- Were The Most Substantial New Works. "The Highway Is For Heroes" Made The Road A Metaphor For Life, And "The Master" Examined Everything From Domestic Abuse To Industrial Waste In Questioning The Nature Of Power Relationships.” William Ruhlmann, AMG.... more details

Jesse Colin Young - Together Together
Pop Used - LP BS 2588 Warner
1972 White Label Promo. Appears Unplayed. 1B/1B Stampers. “Made While The Youngbloods Were Still Together, Jesse Colin Young's First Solo Album Since 1965's Young Blood Was A Busman's Holiday On Which He Played Favorite Songs From A Variety Of Genres -- '50s Rock & Roll (Chuck Berry's "Sweet Little 16"), Country (The Dave Dudley Hit "6 Days On The Road"), Folk-Blues (Mississippi John Hurt's "Creole Belle"), Chicago Blues (The Butterfield Blues Band Song "Born In Chicago"), And Folk (Woody Guthrie's "Pastures Of Plenty"). Having Covered Those Bases, Young Also Introduced Some Timely Originals, Such As "Peace Song," An Anti-War Anthem, And "Good Times," Which Was Very Reminiscent Of The Rustic Sound Van Morrison Had Found Recently On Such Albums As Tupelo Honey. It All Made For An Enjoyable, If Unambitious Album That Reached The Charts For Several Weeks, Which Inspired Young To Give The Youngbloods Notice And, After One More Album And Tour With Them, Relaunch His Solo Career Full-Time.” William Ruhlmann, AMG.... more details
