Today's alternative country movement owes Jason Ringenberg more than it knows. During the '80s he and his motley band of heavy metal honky tonkers raged against the Nashville machine, and made music of lasting vitality and cathartic release. And though the Scorchers maintain their loyal following, they've never quite broken from small club and sales obscurity. This album, recorded on a four track and a boot-buckle budget, remains their defining moment: no-holes-barred, no-prisoners-taken roots music, punctuated by Warner Hodge's slashing guitar and Ringenberg's unsettling wails. --Roy Francis Kasten

An original nugget of cow punk

"I know, it's out of print. But whatever you have to do to get a hold of it -- beg, borrow, steal -- DO IT! Anyone who likes their buzzsaw guitars slamming out honky tonk twang will find a cornerstone to their collection with this one. This li'l EP -- armed with bonus tracks! -- has become the standard by which roots punk is judged in my little corner of the world. Track down your own copy of the alt-country gold stanard. It's right here in Restless Country Soul."
The Devil Toke This One Away

"I bought in one year every album what I could find of Jason and a lot of 7" and 12" singles.
But the devil toke this one away... I still can't find it on vinyl(Praxis).
This is the rawest material what Jason and the Scorchers ever done in my eyes. Unfornunatly I've never seen them doing a show. My mother and father were 20 years too late with puttin me on earth haha.
Well.. back to the Reckless Country Soul EP from 1982. Sometimes I've think why they did'nt called this one Reckless Country Soup. Cause this album is damn hot, with some rolllicking punkrock, Willie Nelson/Hank Williams country, 50's rock 'n roll, boogie and lot of more... everything what this EP needs.And that's the magic to get the right flavour!
(this one will take over your soul sometimes, thats why I bought it on CD after all!)

A great CD but try to find the original Praxis EP on vinyl

"This is a great CD but for some odd reason, they used an alternative version of "Pray For Me Mama (I'm a Gypsy Now)" on this CD release rather than the far superior version originally released on the Praxis 12 incher. On the other hand, you get the CD release of Jason's first 7" EP - so that alone is worth the price of admission. I give it "two thumbs up!" Buy or ...!"
