Inside Entertainment reviews the new Ramblin' Jack Elliott CD

Still ramblin’ at 75, Elliot’s been around since Woody Guthrie. A onetime cowboy turned hobo, he’s hung out with beatnicks and Deadheads and starred in Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Review roadshow. His flat-picking is vintage folk-blues and his voice, now deliciously craggy, bears the mark of many traveled miles on songs like “Arthritis Blues” and “Leaving Cheyenne.” Despite the presence of fans like Lucinda Williams and Red Hot Chili Peppers’ Flea, Elliot, a bona fide living legend, owns the whole spotlight.
