Synopsis

Amazon.com
Not sure why Sandy and the Boys decided to squeeze out this measly EP (under 20 minutes) rather than craft a regular long-player? After all, there hasn't been a full-length BS & HFRB release since 1997's super Feelin' Kinda Lucky; in 1998, Big Sandy released a solo album of doo-wop and R&B (Dedicated to You) while the Fly-Rite Boys produced their own sparkling country-jazz record. Maybe Sandy just couldn't wait to get all the troops back into the studio together because the six Sandy originals here find his collective reaching new heights. There's stomping boogie-woogie, Merle Travis-inspired fingerpicking novelties, and Western swing rave-ups--all delivered with an ease and sophistication that they've never quite found before. And they were damn good before. --Marc Greilsamer

Mr-Gay-Fab | san Francisco OF COURSE!!! DUHHH | 08/25/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Western swing king Big Sandy & His Fly Rite Boys ,are at it again, playing more late 1940's, to mid 50's sounding western swing, with touches of rockabilly. WOW!!! This cd is short but sweet, actually it's all uptempo and pretty dang near HOT!!! Well worth acquiring for an yBig Sandy fan."
