Sealed 1971 Gatefold Original. “Steve Goodman's 1971 Self-Titled Album Marked The Debut Of A Great New Songwriter. "City Of New Orleans," Which Was (Then) Soon To Be A Hit For Arlo Guthrie, Is The Obvious Standout, And "You Never Even Call Me By My Name," Later A Country Hit By David Allan Coe In A Revised Version, Is Also Impressive, But "I Don't Know Where I'm Goin', But I'm Goin' Nowhere In A Hurry Blues" And "Would You Like To Learn Dance?" Also Show Off Different Sides Of This Versatile Talent. Versatility Is The Key Here, As Goodman Broke Well Out Of The "Folkie" Tag To Embrace Pop, Country, And Arcane Jazz, Including Not Only His Own Compositions But Also Covers Of Songs By Hank Williams, Johnny Otis, And Pal John Prine While Utilizing A Who's Who Of Nashville Session Musicians. Beyond The Musical Eclecticism, There Was Also A Variety In Tone, With Gentle Evocations Of Tenderness And Humor Alternating So That You Didn't Always Know Whether Goodman Was Serious Or Kidding. At A Time When Sensitive Singer/Songwriters Were All The Rage (A Trend That Probably Earned Goodman His Record Contract), This Was One Guy Who Was At Least As Interested In Picking An Old Country Song As He Was In Baring His Soul.” – William Ruhlmann, AMG
