The Acapulco Gold standard of hippie country and swing

"It's difficult to remember how we took this music when it was originally issued in the early 70s. Many of us were busy listening to the last remnants of 60s guitar rock morphing itself into the overblown stadium prattle that would hang on for several more years. So how did we end up listening to stone country, boogie-woogie and jump blues? It can all be pinned on Commander Cody and his Lost Planet Airmen.The wedding of hippie sentiment ("Seeds and Stems") with country, rock and boogie-woogie classics ("Hot Rod Lincoln" "20 Flight Rock" "Beat Me Daddy Eight to the Bar"), backed by the stellar playing of everyone concerned, and topped off with Cody's incredible showmanship (both live and on LP) was a package destined to gather up a lot of new ears.This is the band's debut LP, and though they'd record many more excellent releases, I'm not so sure they ever topped this one as a statement of just who they were. A stone classic, so to speak."
Outstanding Unique Music From The 70's

This is an outstanding first album from a new band. The hit song "Hot Rod Lincoln" is on this album. Commander Cody and The Lost Planet Airmen throw away the normal formula for music that so many bands did back in the 1970's. The music created a new type of sound called "Truck Stop Rock", with their emphasis on the truck driving culture. The music is combination of; Texas Swing, Boogie-Woogie, Country Rock and Rock-And-Roll. While so many bands/musicians created over-produced formula music, Commander Cody created a honest new sound. The Commander Cody And His Lost Planet Airmen maybe the most original rock-and-roll music from the 1970's. The first album show their unique style and the albums that followed kept the formula going.The Commander Cody has this great "deadpan" style voice and great boogie-woogie piano playing he is a gem. With Billy C. Farlow singing lead on songs also, it just makes for a unique band. Bill Kirchen, was in the band and went on to become a star in his own right. Bill Kirchen did his own career after Commander Cody band broke up, and was a big hit in his own career. Producing "rockabilly" to "Country-Rock" to "dieselbilly/high-octane country", to playing "smokin' Telecaster" music.This band was full of incredible talent !
Where's "Country Casanova"?

"I too had the opportunity to see CC and his LPA in Ann Arbor in 1970 (and many times thereafter), and they were truly one of the great live bands of this era. Nevertheless, their studio recordings (of which this was the first) were outstanding in their own right. It's unfortunate "Country Casanova" and "Hot Licks, Cold Steel & Other Truckers' Favorites" remain out of print. These were my favorite recordings and hopefully this will someday be rectified."Ozone" features much of the band that remained together until the latter part of the '70s, including the Commander, Andy Stein, Billy C. Farlow, Bill Kirchen, John Tichy, Buffalo Bruce Barlow, and Lance Dickerson. The West Virginia Creeper, who played steel guitar, was replaced after the 1st LP."
