"Yet another great album frm Too Slim! What catagory does this band fit in? I am not sure but it does fit in the great section of whatever catagory you put it in. I recently heard Too Slim play at a local bar here in his hometown of Spokane and thought, WOW ths guy is really great! Since, I have purchased his albums and this is just another one of his best!"

"This album rates right up there as one of my favorite albums of all time. It's one of those rare few CD's that you can listen to over and over without tiring of it. In fact, I recently loaned this album to a friend that lives in Seattle and, although he's only had it for a couple of weeks, I'm here in Amazon.com right now to purchase another copy because I can't stand to not have it in my collection. Tim 'Too Slim' Langford is quite an accomplished guitar player (see the recent Washington Blues Society article on Tim at www.wablues.org) as well as a harmonica player. As the front man for the Taildraggers, he has been playing at juke joints and festivals around the Northwest, as well as nationally and internationally, for nearly 20 years now. And does he ever rock the place! Too Slim and the Taildraggers are such a huge hit with crowds that they are the ONLY band to be invited back to the Winthrop Rhythm and Blues Festival in Washington State each of it's 16 years. And this album shows why. From the first rocking cut, "One More Gallon of Gasoline" to the closing "Hell's Half Acre", this is one fantastic album, with not one song that I don't like a lot. My favorites are the heartrending "She's Not Comin' Back", the laid-back "I Just Don't Care", the yummy cajun-flavored title cut, and my hands down favorite "Doghouse" (which might as well be my theme song). This is a fantastic album. Listen to the first five songs here on Amazon and see if you don't agree."
