""Sleepy Hollow" was Siegel-Schwall's second effort for their new label, "Wooden Nickel Records" Released in 1972, it broke new ground with hits "Hey Billie Jean" and "Something's Wrong". Check out the harp workout Corky gives to "Billie Jean", then listen to the greased lightning fretwork Jim puts into "Something's Wrong"....whew!! How do dey do dat?? "You Don't Love Me Like That" is a blues boogie like you always wanted to hear, footstompin' music and awesome slide guitar. Rollo Radford, bass player extraordinaire, gets a tune here too, with an original called "I Wanna Love Ya" and appropriately, it opens the record setting the tone for what's to come. He has a very tuneful and powerful voice, and it's always a treat to hear Rollo belt one out. Jim's "Blues For A Lady" is the longest cut, and also the quietest...it's a slow blues and tells a story of love for his then wife Cherie, in Jim's own special way. And Jim even visits country music with his hilarious "Sick To My Stomach" in which he sings about the gastric distress he experiences whenever he thinks of his girl being with another man.This is satisfying music, all the way through, as only Siegel-Schwall can play it."
