Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

BR5-49's first full-length disc isn't a bad album, but it offers nothing that hasn't been done earlier and better by nouveau honky-tonk and rockabilly bands in Boston, Austin, L.A., Washington, and Baltimore. Gary Bennett and Chuck Mead, BR5-49's two singing, songwriting guitarists, mix six originals with old songs by the likes of Webb Pierce, Mel Tillis, Ray Price, Moon Mullican, and Gram Parsons. BR5-49 performs with the enthusiasm and competence of the seasoned bar band it is, but neither Bennett nor Mead is a special singer or picker and the rhythm section lumbers along without distinction. One suspects that BR5-49 were signed because they showcased regularly on Lower Broadway in Nashville, where country-music executives who don't get out much thought they were seeing something unprecedented. --Geoffrey Himes

5.0 out of 5 stars If you like the older style Honky Tonk try this one. August 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
BR5-49 brings the classic Honk Tonk style back to country music. This CD has the Fun Jumpy songs of the classic Honky Tonk artists. It will take you on a mental trip to the the Honky Tonks of the past.

4.0 out of 5 stars A great return to country roots. April 19, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
BR5-49 is classic country. I don't even LIKE country, but I adore these guys. They present a fresh, honest approach on this, their first album, with songs penned by the band members, as well as several classic cuts from the country archives. In my opinion, anyone can enjoy this album. I recommend it highly.

5.0 out of 5 stars Throw away Shania and all of the other want-a-be's April 14, 1999
Format:Audio CD
Welcome BR549!!! I was fortunate to see a show of theirs in Albany, Oregon. They are great. MUCH, MUCH better than all of the "so called" country today. I wish that more radio stations would play BR549's music. I am sick of hearing Shania (Pop music, not country) every other song on the radio. BR549 makes me want to get up and dance. I will never get sick of them. I think the best concert to see would be BR549 and Chris LeDoux. That's REAL country.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good Solid Honky-Tonk March 8, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
A good, strong sophomore effort from this group, better than 90% of the trash out of Nashville these days. By the way, I know that reviewer Mark Cooper (see above) doesn't have a clue--BR-549 isn't reminiscent of an old bomber--it's Junior Samples phone number for his used car lot (remember Hee-Haw?).

Br5-49 is the greatest new country band I've heard in a long time. Vocals are great, classic guitar licks are fantastic and they have a rhythm section that is really tight. All three albums are great and the musicianship is unbelievable. I prefer the Backyard Beat Show as my personal favorite. I really don't feel that the review from amazon.com is fair. This great band proves it self with one listen of their songs. Please don't take my advice, listen for yourself. You will be convinced.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent example of toe tapping country rockabilly June 25, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD contains mostly upbeat toe tappin' music that is a joy to listen to over and over. The several remake songs are every bit as good if not better than the originals. Usually I do not like remakes as well as the original version but all of these are an exception. The ballad songs are sung with great feeling. The songs are country and not pop which is refreshing these days when so much so called 'country' music is not country.

I saw them in the movie "Praire Home Companion" and I thought their vocals were better than on this CD. It still has some interesting tracks.

How can you go wrong with a band that writes "Little Ramona (Has Gone Hillbilly Nuts)"? BR5-49 gets it. You should too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fun
I have a diverse taste in music and these guys fit right in. Fun, catchy tunes, upgrading the sound (and tempo) into a country swing/rockabilly flavor.
