Not one of his best
Review written by Ali, October 30th, 2004

There are three themes that run through this album: Blondes, California, and Blonde Girls from California. Of course, it's only fitting since the album is titled "Blondes." I don't think this album has quite the punch as some of John's others such as Chilly Winds or Wires From the Bunker. The lyrics don't seem to be as good and yes, I get a little tired of hearing about California. Lindsey Buckingham appears on "Jenny Was a Dream Girl" but the song is not one of my faves. "Blonde Star" is rumoured to be about Stevie Nicks. "Girl Down the River" definitely reminds me of John's songs I love best...a little more folk sounding than the others. If you get the Swedish import, you will also get the song "All the Desperate Men" one of John's best songs. Overall, not John's best, but a good effort nonetheless.

Songs aren't as catchy, but still sounds great
Review written by John Fitzgerald, September 9th, 2004

"Jenny was a dream girl" is the stand out track on this disc which Lindsey arranged and sang backing vocals on. He also arranged "The queen of Hollywood high" which funnily enough was my next favorite before I knew about the arrangement details! The former is a sensitive ballad and as with the rest of the record, it's amazing to hear how John's electric guitar style was influenced by Lindsey on this one. I hate to steal from the title but this song is absolutely dreamy and worth buying for this song alone. The rest of the songs have nice sounding production and are good but I don't generally think this is one of Stewart's better efforts. The songs just aren't as catchy or emotional as those on say "Bombs away dream babies" or "The last campaign" but not bad by any means as I still recommend it for "Jenny was a dream girl" alone if nothing else but I'm sure those of you who like John Stewart's music will find some hidden treasures herein.

Chris Whelan is incorrectly spelled as Chris "Whalen"

Ray O'Hara (AKA: Rei Ohara) is incorrectly spelled as "Ohari"

After an absence of over two years, veteran folkie John Stewart returns with a winning LP about "the myths and reality of legendary California girls." The music is tasteful soft rock, featuring fellow vocalist and guitarist Chuck McDermott, and benefiting from appearances by Lindsey Buckingham and Linda Ronstadt. (Billboard Magazine)
