Synopsis

Amazon.com
If the intention on this solo debut by the Georgia Satellites frontman was to put a Confederate rock spin on Rod Stewart's classic Gasoline Alley sound, then Baird and producer Brendan O'Brien have succeeded masterfully. It's retro, of course, but Baird exhibits unusual spirit, and chops on standouts like "I Want You Bad," "L'il Bit," and "Younger Face." Nice touch, too, to bring in Joe South to add the na-na's to a chunky cover of his own "Hush." --Jeff Bateman

Just got this cd day before yesterday, allredy listened to it about 5 times. A couple great tunes, seversl really good tunes 1 or 2 not so great and the that makes you really laugh if you think about it. Overall a good cd, not quite up to Love songs for the hearing impaired though.

Dan Baird strikes again
Charles Hughes | Madison, WI United States | 10/10/1999
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Can this guy go wrong? After making great records with The Georgia Satellites, and then making the great "Love Songs" record, he strikes back with his as-of-this-point latest record, another slice of biting Americana. Contains the best song he ever wrote: "Cumberland River." Also contains "Lil Bit," one of the hardest rockers in recent memory. Great solid record from a vastly underappreciated musician."
Dan takes three

"I so wanted to love this album. Love Songs... is an all-time favourite, and I snapped up Buffalo Nickel the week it came out. Sure enough, it has some fine songs - Younger Face, Li'l Bit - a true gem in Cumberland River and a deliciously silly hidden bonus. Somehow though, it doesn't hang together as it should, and the freshness and sparkle that make Love Songs... such fun are missing. Paradoxically, what's supposed to be a dirtier, more 'live-sounding' style makes the whole thing sound more studied and homogeneous. (And if they wanted a live sound, what are they doing fading songs out?)Oh yes, and someone should tell Dan he can't write slow songs. The ballads on the Satellites' albums were seldom better than embarrassing, and Hell to Pay and (especially) Hit Me Like a Train here are just dreadful. His sly, sideways-looking Southern wit needs an accompaniment that similarly light on its feet, and sustained chords and ponderous basslines just don't work for him.All this sounds more negative than a 60 per cent score deserves. Dan merely suffers from trying to follow a minor classic and not quite succeeding. All the same, there's plenty to enjoy here."
