A band of Nashville veterans replaces the superstar lineup of Helm's first two albums. The resulting record has a relaxed groove that kicks in with Watermelon Time in Georgia and doesn't let up. The terrific Hurricane evokes the Band's second album, while Violet Eyes and China Girl are highlighted by engaging harmonies. American Son is considered by many to be Levon's best solo album.
