Review July 11th, 01
“J.D. Blackfoot has always been a remarkable storyteller. Even listeners who are not hard-core fans know and appreciate such numbers as “The Song of Crazy Horse” and “The Ultimate Prophecy.”
Nothing Blackfoot has produced before, however, compares with “The Legend of Texas Red.”
This story about the life and adventures of an Alabama youngster en route to manhood in narration and song is the performers stunning masterpiece.
On these discs, Blackfoot demonstrates that he is a capable actor in addition to being an appreciated musical performer of long-standing.
I was captured from the beginning, and, although I had heard the first song, “Birmingham” in concert, the impact it had on me this time, because of the introduction, was so emotional that I found myself looking forward with expectation to each narrative and the song that followed.
I have no hesitation in saying that, in my opinion, “The Legend of Texas Red” is a keeper.
