"This was the Trucker's second album, but was pretty much the songs they toured on when they first started out. In the liner notes, Patterson Hood states that they basically wanted to capture all those tunes even though "Gangstabilly" was the first release. This album has a lot of songs on it. As a result, the album seems kind of long to me, but really, there's only maybe one annoying song on the whole album. So, 13/14 ain't too bad.

First, the annoying one: "The President's Penis is Missing" is basically a jokey-jokey song not only about Clinton but a whole bunch of former U.S. presidential affairs. Might have been funny at the time, but seeing as how I got this CD in the middle of Bush's second term, it's outdated, and the music sounds like it belongs in a circus act. And for those of you keeping political score at home - it's neither defending or condemning these affairs, but just basically says it is what it is.

I'm not going to do a blow by blow of the rest of the tunes. They're all pretty great in their own way, and my favorites change depending on the day of the week. One notable is "The Company I Keep." To me, this is classic Patterson Hood. Just like Robert Plant claims "Kashmir" is the quintessential Led Zeppelin tune, "The Company I Keep" is THE ANTHEM of the DBT. Again, it's not my favorite tune, but the chorus is catchy as all get-out.

Mike Cooley's tunes, "Uncle Frank" and "One of These Days" are always in my head. If you google the Tennessee Valley Authority you'll find tons of sites discussing how great it was for Alabama. "Uncle Frank" tells the story from a different opinion. "One of These Days" seems to be about a rite of passage to me, or at least how different places and events can change a person.

"Pizza Deliverance" should have been an indication that these guys were destined for great things.

"Sorry for stealing an earlier reviewer's title; but he nailed it. I, like a lot of DBT listeners, started with Southern Rock Opera (Great CD), so that sound is what formed my expectations of the band. Following it up with The Dirty South (also great) only solidified them. So, at first I thought P.D. was nice "background material" but not as strong as some of their other stuff. Now, a couple of years later, I find that the DBT CD/MP3 that I'm most likely to be playing is... Pizza Deliverence. Even with a few disposable cuts, I like it MUCH better than any of their efforts other than the two mensioned above. "Box of Spiders", "Bulldozers and Dirt", and "The Company I Keep" are classic, and anyone who's spent time in the rural/exurban south (20 yrs., before moving to the great white north) knows a Harold & Margo - priceless. If only A Blessing And A Curse had been half this good, I'd have more hope for their next release."
The best TRUCKERS album...By far!

"Listening to this CD is like pure heaven. From the first track to the very last, your hairs will stand up straight. It will inspire all you young country or folk singers to be the best you can be. It was the kind of album when I first heard it, that discouraged me because, frankly, I can't imagine music much better than this.
Highly recommended! And if you're a DBT fan and don't have this, make it your next purchase. You won't be disappointed."
