Bringing Down the Horse
First Appeared in The Music Box, September/October 1996, Volume 3, #7
Written by John Metzger
Bringing Down the Horse has been the breakthrough outing for Jakob Dylan and The Wallflowers, and while it contains some solid material, it's also suffering from overexposure. One Headlight and 6th Avenue Heartache are the two hits thus far, and the latter contains some fine backing vocals from Counting Crows' singer Adam Duritz. In addition, the spirit of Lou Reed pops up on the Sweet Jane-style introduction to Three Marlenas. Most notable is the keyboard playing of Rami Jaffee, who adds as much to the younger Dylan's songs as Al Kooper did for his father's Like a Rolling Stone.
Bringing Down the Horse is available from Barnes & Noble.
