"Volume three of "Insurgent Country" delivers a good collection of Americana. The twang spectrum runs from mild to wild. Selections by artists like Dan Baird, Tim Carroll and Phil Lee almost sound like Southern Rock. On the other end, artists like Lambchop keep the flag of real, authentic twang flying high. Paul Burch's 'Hayseed' represents Bluegrass, while Kristi Rose & The Handsome Strangers play Western Swing. Gwil Owen's 'No Ammunition' holds down the fort for Rockabilly while Greg Garing plays a tune that will make the heart of any old-time Country fan melt. R.B. Morris's 'Roy' will resonate with fans that enjoy Bob Dylan's Rolling Thunder Review period. Volume three contains many great songs. One of the highlights may be Sonny George's 'Hillbilly Train.' Despite borrowing heavily from 'Mystery Train,' it's a song that can run through this listener's mind for hours. Representing Alt-Country, Duane Jarvis' 'Cocktail Napkin' is another stand-out. The drawback to a collection this eclectic is that most listeners will enjoy some performers a lot more than others. It's the spaghetti approach: throw it all on the wall and hope that something sticks. In this respect, volume three is an effective sampler. "Insurgent Country" is sure to turn any listener of Americana onto multiple new artists."
