An understated, rich, rewarding gem that no one's ever heard. Unfortunately, since few blues fans venture outside the tried-and-true territory of old black men rocking the house Chicago style or young guns with a Hendrix complex serving up monster Texas floods, Cale's druggy brand of rhythmic, spooky storytelling falls far outside of easy characterization.

It's too bad, because Cale's rambling snapshots of love and life on the road are unconventionally addicting. While at times it gets so loose it threatens to fall apart, Cale's sparse style is oddly satisfying -- never has less been more.

All of the songs on Troubadour are outstanding. The now warhorse "Cocaine" is far more intriguing in its original version, more menacing and worldworn than Clapton's driving take. The uncharacteristically energetic "Travelin' Light" is a whispered invitation to road, half intrigue, half warning. The album's highlight, "Cheri," Cale's tender, perhaps futile plea for love, is hauntingly gorgeous.

Cale, much like Nick Drake and Alex Chilton, is an artist whose genius and influence far outweighs his popularity. Sit back and sink in to this simply wonderful disc. ---James Burke, amazon.com
