"If you were driving 'cross country scanning radio stations and came upon one playing a cut off this CD, you'd know you had a country-music station. No lush, banal "Nashville String Machine" arrangements on this one! Pedal steel, fiddle and lead guitar, with some "Pig" Robbins honky-tonk piano mixed in, are what you hear here (hear hear!!!). Since this CD dates from 1996 and I found no other by him, it appears he hasn't "made it" in Nashville, not surprisingly. Too bad; it's good, solid stuff if you like "hard country.""
GEORGE JONES for your Y2K heartbreak

"Fairly spry collection of neo-traditional honkey tonk. GATTIS sings like a knock off for a young George Jones. Offering some trusty weell-written weepers like "Puppet", "Only Lonely Fool" and word-play raves up, such as "Scraping' Off The Paint" and especially the hilarious romp; "WHOOP-DE-DO" (not written by GATTIS, although he pens most of the 10 cuts). Clocking in at 30 minutes, it's about the same lenghth as your average Hee Haw re-run.Better, by a country mile, than "Trout Mask Replica" by Captain Beefheart."
