Having worked with Neil Young and Crazy Horse and his own now-defunct Grin, Nils Lofgren launched a solo career in 1975 that has since been picking up steam. For some of the reasons, see the good-humored unpretentious title cut on this third solo LP, wherein Nils’s manager advises him to sing his song straight and he replies, “Listen here, fool, in order to survive I’ve gotta be my dirty self, I won’t play no jive . . . I’m not Bob Dylan but I never miss a beat / I ain’t no philosopher, I dance in the street.” The music backs him up.
