We Had A Great Time
Review written by Bruce Ellison, October 2nd, 2011

I was the mixer on the record working with Producer Dallas Smith. I had a lot of hits, but I think this was the best album we ever did. Thanks Baron for a Great Time

Mostly subtle and sensitive
Review written by John Fitzgerald, October 6th, 2004

It seems clear to me that the intention here was rather theatrical. Whether this works or not is questionable but there are enough emotional moments present to give it the nod. Though Lindsey is misspelled on the notes of this album as "Lindsay" he lends sensitive lead guitar and background vocals to "I'm no stranger than you" (which is a nice laid back soothing slow to mid tempo tune featuring meaningful strings), very distinctive crystalline acoustic guitar plucks to what I feel is the album's best track, "Don't it drag on" (a heartfelt piece with moving strings), searing electric lead guitar to the album's most rocking track in the speedy stomping "After the storm (Go out dancin')" (you can recognize LB's parts but he holds back a little with a thinner tone than usual on this piano chunker) and backing vocals to the country bouncing yawner "Time" (with perhaps a slight Grateful Dead feel, I think it's the weakest of the 4 Lindsey featured tracks). As for the rest, "We been singin' songs" was a single from this record (as I had noticed in a listing it had peaked at number 97) and one can see why it didn't do very well as it doesn't really have a good hook though they probably chose it more due to it's fast speed and stronger strings/guitar/drums sound than what appears on many other tracks. The opening "(Venice) It's good to see you again" has nice strings and piano parts on the verses but the loudness on the choruses hurt. "Afternoon (Caught me wonderin')" is a piano featured ballad with steel guitars and organ, "Women & gin" includes piano & bass arrangements at the beginning and then later on you get some strings and light drums. It's pleasant but there's many better tracks here than this one. Stewart's cover of the Rolling Stones' "No expectations" encloses a slow piano ballad with strings try and it's fairly useful but of course it can't topple the Stones classic sliding original and "Stoned & lonely" tries to be an anthemic swayer featuring steel guitar and strings. It's not bad but it is ultimately lightweight. In the end, Lindsey does good work on some of the best moments on "Bartering" and it's worth it for those songs alone given you put these recordings in the context of the times in which they were recorded.
