CD Reviews

Scrappy, packed with toe-tappin' tunes
R. Hutchinson | a world ruled by fossil fuels and fossil minds | 09/05/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This 1995 compilation was an early sign of the greatness of the Bloodshot Militant Honky-Tonk Faction of alt.country. If you liked the 5-year anniversary comp, DOWN TO THE PROMISED LAND, then you're bound to like this one just as much. There are 17 cuts, by the Waco Brothers, Robbie Fulks, Richard Buckner, the Bottle Rockets, and the Old 97's, to mention some of the better known artists. The following songs are all absolutely brilliant, and deserved to be blasting out of radios everywhere back in '95:

"Get Down" -- The Bottle Rockets

"Roulette Wheel" -- Moonshine Willy

"One I Love" -- The Volebeats

"Espoontoon" -- Eleanor Roosevelt

"Tennessee Hi-Way Blues" -- Gwil Owen

"Por Favor" -- the Old 97's

"Walking On My Grave" -- The Cartwrights

"Yellow Birds" -- Tarnation

"Don't Die While I'm Alive" -- The Inbreds

"Mud Flap Boogie" -- World Famous Bluejays

I have seldom heard a record so full of energy -- it never fails to make me want to jump up and down and bounce off the walls. Jon Langford's cover painting of "Hank Shot Through With Arrows" is a great bonus. We're coming up on the 10th year anniversary for Bloodshot, and if they can equal this disc and the 5th year compilation, it'll be a happy miracle!"

"You can tell what you're gonna get from the cover art on the CD. This is without a doubt hell-bent-insurgent country. I hadn't heard of most of the groups on the CD, and I'm glad I got this chance to explore some new bands from the good ole midwest. If you haven't heard of these bands, don't worry about it, Bloodshot Records will hook you up with some rockin country twang."
