Tracy Nelson/Mother Earth [Reprise, 1972]
Living with the animals is turning this band bovine. The big development--not counting the new billing--is a goodly helping of gospel piano, which like everything else is quite pleasant without counteracting the inevitable drags. Praise the Lord for one thing: they do admit to the "Tennessee Blues." B

Poor Man's Paradise [Columbia, 1973]
Jack Lee's three songs include one about how California was too hectic for him, and the only tune better than that comes from Willie Dixon, a specialist in the blues music a band of more or less the same name once played. C+
