|Still the Best! ()|
Review written by Anonymous from prior lake,minnesota USA, June 1st, 2007
I saw this guy only one time.....years ago at the Gutherie Theater in Minneapolis.I'll never forget how great he was.They only played acoustic and there was only the two of them but geez,they sure had their stuff together.I remember they pretty much used all Ovation guitars that night.I still can't believe Dave never made it bigger as his talent is better than some artists that don't care what crap they put on a disc.Well...I guess a record company would but I'm old school,if it sounds good and worthy of your name,then run with it.I still love "The Lonely One".A personal favorite.Keep going Dave and God bless.

I first got into playing guitar by listening and playing along with this record. It has a great mix of songs but my particular favorites are Misty Morning Stranger, which has great bounce and dynamics to it, and Side Tracked, one of my favorite instrumental jams (Mason snakes some excellent solos through it). Good party album.

This album has a wonderful combination of acoustic and electric guitar sounds. Every song was wonderfully crafted and demonstrated Mason's versatility as a musician. There are great rockers such as "Baby Please..", "Headkeeper", and "It's Like You Never Left". Interwoven between these songs are acoustic ballads like, "Maybe", "Lonely One" and "Every Woman". Also, there are a few jazz oriented songs like, "Misty Morning Stranger" and an instrumental called "Side Tracked". All in all, a real masterpiece, with something for everyone. This was Mason's first album with Columbia Records and it seems as though he had stockpiled several great songs for his debut with this label.

Review written by John Fitzgerald from Peabody, MA, USA, October 13th, 2004
This is a good mix of electric and acoustic numbers. The album kicks off on the electric side with a catchy rocker called "Baby...please". Oddly, Dave decided to remake "Headkeeper" for this set and it rocks harder than the original version with more emphasis put on the gallop. The best moment for me on the album is "Side tracked" which is an instrumental jam featuring great leads from Dave throughout and some nice electric piano and a irresistibly funky groove. It's a real shame Mason hasn't done more music of this nature in his career as it's first rate stuff. On the acoustic side, the highlights are "Every woman" which is short but sweet, the sensitive "Maybe", the effective "Silent partner" & "The lonely one" with distinctive harp work from guest Stevie onder. This is definitely one of Dave's high water marks with Columbia and a very good one overall too.
