Editorial Reviews

Digitally remastered edition of this 1974 album from the Western Swing band led by Texas singer and guitarist Ray Benson. Tthis self-titled release was to move them further forward with the success of the Louis Jordan cover "Choo Choo Ch'Boogie", which charted on the country charts and gave them a wider audience. Asleep At The Wheel are now an institution but when this album was recorded they were young pioneers, leading the way into a fresh direction that took inspiration from the past, merging it with an approach that was definitely state of the art. 11 tracks. Cherry Red. 2010.

The rest of the album is a showcase of the versatility of this great band.

This is a wonderful sampling of Classic Texas Dance Hall Swing.

Ray Benson and his various incarnations of Asleep at the Wheel have long been icons in Texas Music. I first encountered their music in the mid 70's while attending 48 Hours in Atoka, an outlaw fest of the Woodstock style, where their music was featured between the acts. I must have heard their version of "Take Me Back to Tulsa" more times that weekend than I saw naked drunk chicks running around.
Though they have lost a little of their edge since those days, and the humour may seem a little more camp, they are still an act to be reckoned with.
In this album you will hear a version of "Cotton-Eyed Joe", the perinial barroom dance song, as it was meant to be performed, complete with lyrics. Fiddle player Larry Franklin shows his skill on this number as well. Larry was a North Texas bar fav with his own band prior to joining Benson's Asleep at the Wheel, and his honky tonk time shows on this album.
Ray's voice flows beautifully in the version of "Across the Alley from the Alamo," which is performed here as well as one can ever expect it to be.
This is good, really good Texas swing. If you are a fan of the group and their music, then this is a must add to your collection. If you are unfamilar with Asleep at the Wheel, then don't expect this to be their best recorded effort ever made, but I still believe that you will find it a very enjoyable album to own.

This CD is a repackage of the Wheel's 2006 live concert CD at Sellersville, Pa. which at that time ALSO included a DVD of the same live concert. After following the wheel for years & seeing them live many times this IMO was the best band lineup in their 44 year career. On a down note both Jason Roberts and Elizabeth McQueen have left the group this year (2014)

This was my intro to Asleep At The Wheel back in 1974. The entire album shows the best of what Asleep At The Wheel can do. It is not available in the US. My vinyl rip wasn't good, so I was determined to get the CD from Amazon. It is one of a few albums I was determined to get on CD. The songs seem to fit perfectly together into an irreplaceable set from the best days of popular music.

There is another digital album under the same Amazon listing with the same title which is NOT the same track listing.

This album and Tribute to the Music of Bob Wills & the Texas Playboys are two essential AATW albums among other very good ones.

The three reviews below me are for a different album. This album appears to be Ray's current band running through a live set of classic Wheel and other songs. I am sad there is no official text for the album. The advantage of the live version is that you get to hear their longer improvisational versions of songs such as Cotton Eyed Joe or Under the Double Eagle. The recording quality is great and 20 songs for $5.49 is quite a deal! I have not listened to all the tracks yet but I like the few I have heard. And I am looking forward to all six minutes of Hot Rod Lincoln when I get the chance to crank it up.

The song the previous reviewer labels "vulgar" is my favorite cut on the album. Happy sophisticated gorgeous music!
