Nine years after he last put made an album (1997´s Wildlife Dictionary) and 14 years since he was able to put a record out in the United States (1992´s Don´t Call Me Buckwheat), it´s good to hear from Garland Jeffreys regardless of the circumstances, and while it´s hard not to wish there were more than three new songs on I´m Alive, the record (as its title suggests) is a welcome reminder of a potent talent who has been flying under the radar far too long in America.

Nine years after he last put made an album (1997´s Wildlife Dictionary) and 14 years since he was able to put a record out in the United States (1992´s Don´t Call Me Buckwheat), it´s good to hear from Garland Jeffreys regardless of the circumstances, and while it´s hard not to wish there were more than three new songs on I´m Alive, the record (as its title suggests) is a welcome reminder of a potent talent who has been flying under the radar far too long in America. I´m Alive is a de facto "Best of Garland Jeffreys" collection, featuring 15 classics from his back catalog along with three songs original to this album. While this set doesn´t represent every album Jeffreys has made since launching his recording career in 1970, I´m Alive effectively skims the cream of his music, and great music it is. As a songwriter, Jeffreys is one of those rare rock & roll wordsmiths whose best work reveals a genuine poetic sensibility without falling prey to pretension; there´s a healthy portion of street soul and gritty, hard-won gritty wisdom in Jeffreys´s music, while his views on love, art, race, and the world around him are smart, passionate, sensuous, articulate, and alive to the thrill of discovery that´s part of the creative process. And Jeffreys is a powerful, expressive vocalist who can belt out rock & roll or groove on Latin and reggae rhythms with equal effect.
