“Running Down The Road” by Arlo Guthrie - album review

features in: Album Chart of 1969Album Chart of the Decade: 1960s

TJR says

I hate to be harsh on the likeable Arlo, but this is nowhere near as enjoyable as his debut from a couple of years back, mainly due to side one being a bit of a namby-pamby country affair. Side two recovers to a degree as he gets back to doing what he does best, writing characterful story songs in a folk rock style, as he does on “Coming Into Los Angeles” and “My Front Pages”.
