Picks and Pans Review: High and Outside

Steve Goodman

While his City of New Orleans was a hit for Arlo Guthrie, Goodman has never sold many records on his own. It's too bad. A sardonic folk-tinged composer of the Randy Newman school (Goodman once wrote an anti-health-food tune called The Chicken Cordon Bleus), he's an easygoing performer who pleasantly handles this selection of mostly his own material. Much of it is rather more romantic than usual for him, but What Have You Done for Me Lately (co-written with Shel Silverstein) includes the lines "Cast your bread on the water/And what do you get?/Some hard luck story/And your bread gets wet."
