A Real Slice of American -- and a Fun One
Mark K. Mcdonough | Reston, VA USA | 06/11/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This album was recorded when Brownie was in his 80s, and is a truly wonderful slice of raw Americana. If you like your folk music prettied up, this isn't going to work for you. But if you like it with stubble and tobacco juice and a bit of barroom humor, I can't think of a better album. Ford's gravelly singing is full of life and spirit and he is sharp, focused and energetic throughout. This isn't one of those archival albums that you listen to because you think it's important to understand the roots of American music, but simply a great and enjoyable record. "Burn the Honky Tonk Down" and "This Old House" are probably my favorite tracks, but there are many wonderful moments, including a number of folk standards given Brownie's lively treatment. The excellent liner notes are by songwriter Rodney Crowell."
