Country Music that Rocks
Brian D. Rubendall | Oakton, VA | 07/19/2002
(4 out of 5 stars)

"At their best, The Kentucky Headhunters combined the power of rock and roll with elements of their country roots into a heady guitar laden brew. Unfortunately, they were no great shakes as songwriters and had to rely on outside sources for much of their material. Some of their best tunes were covers, most particularly the butt-kicking version of "Spirit in the Sky" that rescues the song from its hippie origins. They also proved they could do The Beatles with a cover of "You've Got to Hide Your Love Away," and another late-60s classic "Let's Work Together," is updated for the Reagan-Bush era. Not all of this stuff works, however. Particularly lame is the cover of "The Ballad of Davy Crockett." But overall, this is still a decent collection of country rock tunes."

"I heard this CD at a dance club, and the Ballad of Davey Crockett took me back to my youth. Upon purchasing it for the one song, I found I had danced to many of their other hits. I got my money's worth, and I love this CD!~"
Heavy Metal Country

"At their heart, the Kentucky Headhunters are essentially a country band for people who are either ashamed or embarassed to admit they like country. Although present at the birth of that spawn of Satan we all know as "new country," the group stood out from the rest of the pack due to their loving use of electric guitars and amplifiers and their willingness to embrace rock and roll (heck, their drummer can be spotted wearing a vintage Circus magazine T-shirt in one of their early videos). And rock out they do, primarily on an eccentric selection of covers like "Walk Softly On This Heart Of Mine," "Oh, Lonesome Me," "The Ballad Of Davy Crockett," and Norman Greenbaum's "Spirit In The Sky." Why weren't these guys huge? Fun!"
