Kerouac’s Last Dream: Ramblin’ Jack Elliott – Reinfried Marass

Reinfried Marass

Kerouac’s Last Dream is an album by american folk musician Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, released in 1981.

In his liner notes, Elliott writes “”I have been asked, sometimes, why I don’t learn new songs. These are old ones and I have sung them for a long time. They are good and I think they shall always be good.”

Kerouac’s Last Dream was reissued on CD in 1997 on the Appleseed label with additional material from the same 1980 sessions for a German LP release.

Ramblin’ Jack Elliot – Don’t Think Twice It’s Alright

“Michael Perryl of No Depression wrote “The bare-bones best of Kerouac’s Last Dream? All those stories. We may have little in common with buffalo skinners, massacred miners, cowboys, and World War I foot soldiers, or even the folkies and beats of “912 Greens”, but when Ramblin’ Jack sings their stories, I am refreshed to find some universal resonance with travelers who have started our stories for us, rather than hearing one more time that we’re all jes’ good ol’ boys and girls livin’ fer Friday night. Kerouac’s Last Dream is a simple, solid collection…unadorned and necessary, y’might even say”
