New Riders Of The Purple Sage (Bonus Tracks)

New Riders Of The Purple Sage by New Riders Of The Purple Sage
Released: Mar 1971
Label: Columbia/Legacy
Many find the weakness of John "Marmaduke" Dawson's singing an a priori turnoff, but I'm perversely attached to it. This diminutive, definitely mild-mannered c&w fantast betrays (I said betrays) none of the manipulative self-regard that marks the true wimp, and his voice suits the folkie-hippie casualness of the band's "country"-"rock." A feckless myth, to be sure--trucking women and heroic dopers, gentle aspiration and mysterious evil. But a charming and tuneful one. (Grade: B+)
