"This is a great album. The production quality is excellent. They are/were a hot bar band. The second track Blue Chevrolet with its Elmore James lick is a classic. The third track Gunsale at the Church evokes lyrics that could have been written by John Fogerty. The final track their anthem HAPPY BOY is a Sing along that is beyond description. The song is pure country. The standard country beat, but it rocks. These guys are awesome musicians well schooled in country, rock and blues. The essential elements for a great bar band. This music will not attract many youngsters into Hip Hop, Rap and the like . Thank God. Put on your Levis, get a pair of cowboy boots and a cowboy hat, grab a cold long neck and enjoy."
Not exactly the best?

"Although this CD has a few good highlights (Buddy Blue on a wonderful cover of Neil Young's Powderfinger, and some awesome slide guitar work on Blue Cheverolet) it seems to be bogged down with some "filler tunes" that most Beat Farmer fans can live without. Why leave out such classic tunes like Lost Weekend, or Texas? It seems this disc was hastily put out by their record company (supposedly without their permission). If you want to experience the true grit of the band, check out "Loud, Plowed, and Live". This is a far better "greatest hits" compilation, and a must have to truly appreciate the band."
Small but effective

"This is not exactly what I'd call 'paltry' but then again, I'm doing this for free and I actually bought the album. Admittedly eleven tracks leaves you wanting more and if sheer volume of good music is your aim you might want the band's live album which weighs in with 21 tracks.But these are eleven very good tracks, some of which are not on the larger album. Gun Sale At the Church and Girl I Almost Married are a good reason to get this one, as are the excellent studio versions of Riverside, Blue Chevrolet and God Is Here Tonight.If you already have the live album, this one is a nice addition. If you don't, it's a nice start. Either way, you're likely to end up getting both."
