    I wish they would remaster this album. It's my favorite RLJ album but very low volume. I love Satellites and Horses.
  • A chance listening...

    I was hanging out with my good friend one summer when he put this cassette into his car and hit play. At first I was confused by her playful, yet soulful voice. I had never heard music like this before! By the time we finished listening to it I was HOOKED. Since then I have become a diehard fan of Rickie's and own several of her albums, although this one is still my favorite. She is still one of the great originals!
  • Fantastic Album

    If Geffen had backed up this great album with the marketing is deserved then it would have been a huge commercial success. Have a listen. The production is near perfect. The songs have depth. The imagery is beautiful. I think this is her most diverse, but consistently listenable album. (Because of the time I purchased the CD this album doesn't remind me of the southwest, but of beautiful snowy winters in New England.)
  • One of the best albums of all time...

    Has to be one of the best albums of all time. I've had it ever since it came out and I never get tired of listening to it. You can tell Walter Becker helped produce it because it reminds me of Steely Dan's eclecticism, a great mix of jazz-pop with her fabulous ability to croon. The theme of the urban ghetto being like the desert Southwest is a piece of pure originality. The lyrics alone are great examples of prose-poetry, enough to rival Bernie Taupin, in his heyday writing for Elton John. Also, as usual, her vocal range is amazing.

    This is a fantastic album from start to finish. I've been listening to it for years and I never tire. Her voice and the arrangements are beautiful. I have favorites like "Flying Cowboys" and "Satellites" but I recommend buying the complete album because it's really a work of art that deserves to be listened to as whole.

    I have this one on vinyl and tape and CD and here I am buying it again. From first track to last it's a journey. Her voice! Sheer heaven. Saw her in concert years and years and years ago... I still remember the surprise of how good she really is... all on her own and alone with a mic. I'm looking forward to listening to this alone in the dark tonight!
  • Road trip through the southwest

    This album is one of the best soundtracks of the southwest! Just as beautiful as the landscape.
  • Incredible Album

    This album is one of the most well-produced, beautiful works of musical artistry that I have heard. RLJ delivers raw emotion on every track, painting lush imagery with each song. The musicianship is incredible, comprised of some of the best studio musicians that were working in LA at the time, and the Walter Becker (of Steely Dan fame) production really delivers. Enjoy!
  • Great CD - well worth listening to!

    I first heard Satellites in 1990, and I became hooked when I got the album. Flying Cowboys is my favorite.......hypnotic and haunting melody and lyrics.......this song brings back some great memories. If you are a fan of female singers who can change styles within an album and still have it sound coherent and smooth, this one's for you.
  • This is CD is just.... Cool. thats the only way to describe it. Cool.

    Back in the late 80s, early 90s I thought my older sister was weird listening to RLJ, but then i gave it a go and the CD was fun, cool music. Made you want to bounce around. Now I have these moments where I just need to hear someone say.... Hey Mister!! Can we have our baaaaallll back? :) Turns out my mom stole this CD from my sister. Now I am gonna buy 2 copies and send my sister 1. RLJ ROCKS!
