- Track Listing
While lead singer of The Youngbloods, Jesse Colin Young's legendary rock band took the nation by storm when their single "Get Together" became a worldwide #1 hit and a prominent soundtrack for peace. After seven albums with the group, Jesse released more than 15 celebrated solo albums including Song for Juli a work many critics agree is his solo masterpiece.
Although it was his fourth solo album, Song for Juli was Young's first full-fledged effort under his own name. Jesse organized a versatile backup band in which piano, violin, and horns complemented his beautiful tenor voice in arrangements that recalled Van Morrison's Caledonia Soul Orchestra and featured familiar blues, country, and Cajun elements. In his lyrics, Young hewed closely to the current back-to-the-land philosophy, celebrating his family life (Juli is his daughter) and his "Ridgetop" retreat in Marin County, CA.
Young's fans responded strongly to Song for Juli, giving it a higher chart placing than any album The Youngbloods ever made and keeping it in the charts longer than any album he ever made.
This is 70's California pop at it's best and the album is enjoyable from the first note to the last and shows the breadth of Young's stylistic talents. Solid songs, solid rhythm section, brilliant solos, perfect piano parts and one of the most distinctive voices in pop music. There are no disconcerting interludes here. You've got rock, jazz, country, and Cajun all smoothly rolled into one.

Vinyl records are able to capture the purest quality of recorded music in true form. This is possible because the initial recording is captured on an analog source (usually tape) for the ultimate in High Fidelity sound, it is then pressed onto virgin vinyl. Analog recordings capture the bottom end (or bass) while adding sweetness to the high end (or treble) better than any digital recording ever could. Analog systems are still commonly used before they are digitally transferred to CD. This means that the sound then is altered in the transfer process when CD's are produced. The word fidelity means accuracy and faithfulness. High Fidelity sound is faithful to the original sound made by the artist, capturing maximum accuracy of what was intended for the listener to hear. Vinyl records capture those sounds for the ultimate High Fidelity listening experience!
180/200 GRAM Vinyl LP
These vinyl records are produced with 180 or 200 grams of high definition premium grade virgin vinyl. This is a higher quality audiophile pressing than the typical vinyl record of 100-120 grams. These limited edition LP's are manufactured with the hi-fi enthusiast in mind. A 180 or 200 gram LP is sometimes also referred to as an audiophile pressing, there is a higher bass response and an even warmer High Fidelity sound. 180 or 200 grams LP's are typically manufactured in limited amounts and are considered collectibles, commanding a higher price.
Typically, a vinyl reissue is a repressing of an original LP, usually extracted from the recording's master-tapes. In some cases, reissues are remastered to lower surface noise and improve overall sonics. Reissues help preserve the music of an original recording, especially when original LPs become unavailable or can no longer be found. Reissues can be pressed on a variety of thickness from 150 gram to 200 gram and offer a great opportunity for records collectors to own many classic recordings.
