"I finally tracked down a copy of this limited edition EP and it was well worth the wait and money.
Basicly it is just Acetone playing 7 country covers mostly from the 60's and 70's. The songs themselves are good choices and its worth getting your hands on the originals even if you think Garth Brooks is a cornball redneck.
The album is so mellow and slow but retains a slight warm country twang, sort of like sipping whiskey at sunset.
The opening instrumental reprise of the Flying Burrito Brothers "Juanita" sets the mood for some classic country songs that will have you crying in your beer.
Then "How Sweet I Roamed From Field to Field" puts you fully under the warm blanket of relaxation. Interestingly enough all the lyrics are from the 18th century English engraver poet William Blake, only put into a song.
Just when you think your alseep comes the 11-minute drunken sloppyness of Kris Kristofferson's "Border Lord" with vocals that sound like they were filtered through a megaphone. Actually the band did record it at 4am in Nashville fully wasted and it shows. Its alright but very loose and sort of annoying. Im sure it was fun for them though and there is some interesting bits in it."
