The joint project of ex-participants "Paul Butterfield’s Better Days”, guitarist Jimmy Page of Led Zeppelin said in 1975 in an interview with Rolling Stone that Amos Garrett was one of his favorite American guitarists…~


Geoff and Amos truly are musical soul brothers, best sampled in tandem…on record, the relationship goes back to Paul Butterfield’s Better Days, a great band in which they aced Please Send Me Someone to Love, a classic Mayfield composition, and several other memorable tracks. Amos does Mayfield justice with his fine vocal here on River’s Invitation. There are a few goofy tracks on this CD but, hey, the lads share a quirky sense of humour. I’d slap dozens of stars on any product that combines Geoff’s matchless voice with Amos’s evocative guitar. If these guys are new to you, get to know them. You’ll never be sorry. ..by…Red Nichols..~

Geoff Muldaur, who is performing at the Other End with his friend, Amos Garrett, through this weekend, was probably the finest white blues singer, and certainly the finest non‐Southern white blues singer, of the 19tars. During the early 70’s he made several albums with his then wife, Maria Muldaur, and the sweet, supple strength of his voice, the assurance of his phrasing, and his various textural colorings overpowered her thinner, less assured singing rather decisively. By the mid‐1970’s, Miss Muldaur was a major singing star and Mr. Muldaur’s claim to fame was being her ex-hushand. But now Miss Muldaur’s fame has receded somewhat, leaving Mr. Muldaur doing pretty much what he always did. 

Which is to say, Mr. Muldaur is still souandering his gifts, and doing so with such good humor and insouciance that one enjoys him anyway. His late set with Mr. Garrett on Thursday night was a bemused ramble through the realms of blues, old‐time pop, and light jazz, with Mr. Garrett handling at least half the singing and playing lead guitar that was occasionally over‐busy, but often stunning in its directness and  blues feeling.One waited for Mr. 111uldaur to do something profound, to really show off that wonderfully affecting voice of his, and of course he never did. Perhaps he has concluded, and perhaps wisely, that white blues singers who aim for profundity never quite make the grade. Perhaps his refusal to come to terms with the potential powers at his command is a curious brand of musical integrity. Then again, perhaps he is a little lazy. 

Ian Tamblyn, a Canadian singersongwriter, opened the show, He tended to shuffle and mumble, and one thought at first he might be too sensitive and introspective to capture the attention, but somehow he managed, and his songs began to sound craftsmanlike and reasonably distinctive. His lack of forcefulness as a performer would undoubtr dly be compensated for by a good band. Meanwhile, he bears watching…byRobert Palmer …New York Times…~


Richard Thompson once said there were three great white blues singers, and two of them were Geoff Muldaur. Add to that what Stevie Wonder said about Amos Garrett, that his guitar solo on Maria Muldaur’s ‘Midnight at the Oasis’ was the second-best ever, and you have a great combination. This album is a classic. There’s great tunes: blues from Percy Mayfield, jazz from Hoagy Carmichael, classical from Chopin, a wonderful Chuck Berry obscurity, and some originals. But most of all there’s Muldaur’s amazing voice and Garrett’s amazing, dazzling guitar. If you like warmth, humour, wit and soul, you’ll like this…by…. S. STRATFORD….~
