"Everything these guys do is nothing less than great..though the band has periodically gone thru several personnel changes, they are never lacking in true talent. If you'd like to get started with your own AATW music collection, don't forget to include this one! Great fun & music you'll want to hear over & over again."

"This is a good album. All the tunes are fast tempo swingin' dance tunes except for "Blues Stay Away From Me," which is slow and melodic. Ray Benson sings all the lead vocals. Stand out songs are "Way Down Texas Way," "Tulsa Straight Ahead," "House Of Blue Lights," and "Boogie Back To Texas." "Way Down Texas Way" and "Boogie Back To Texas" are essential recordings for your Asleep At The Wheel collection, so you need to buy this album or the compilation album Swing Time to get those. "String Of Pars" is an instrumental. This album is named 10 because it's their 10th album, and it's their first recording made available on CD. It was released in 1987. Band line up: Ray Benson, Tim Alexander, David Dawson, John Ely, Michael Francis, Larry Franklin, David Sanger. Additional personnel: Johnny Gimble, Pete Anderson, Ray Campi, Tom Anastasio, Chris O'Connell. Sorry, no lead vocals from Chris on this album."
Asleep At The Wheel -- a real misnomer!

"Back when I stubbornly insisted that punk rock and Charlie Parker were the only things that truly mattered in music, a friend loaned me this album. I have been a fan of their hip and swingin' hoedown tunes ever since. No, it's not the mosh pit, and it's not a dark blue bar in New York City. It's a bunch of really cool cowboys who CANNOT sit still. You won't either!"
