Nobody but nobody nowadays does traditional country better than Junior Brown. You can't even call his music "contemporary traditionalism" (i.e., Alan Jackson, George Strait, etc.). Brown's music harks back to the day of Hank Williams, Ernest Tubb (his biggest influence, immortalized in "My Baby Don't Dance to Nothin' But Ernest Tubb), and Jimmie Rogers. Listen to "Too Many Nights in a Roadhouse" and try NOT to think of the guys who started this whole thing we call "country music." All of it delivered in Brown's mellow baritone.

They say Chet Atkins was the kind of guitar player who either made you wanna play guitar or quit playing. Brown is that type of guitarist as well. His patented "guit-steel" instrument is inspired and unmistakable (it came to him in a dream, he once said), and his playing will raise the hairs on the back of your neck. Even people with absolutely no interest in instrumentals will be floored by "Sugar Foot Rag" (unfortunately, the only instrumental on here). And the hillbilly/blues licks of "Freeborn Man" will make you swoon. And though few of these songs are deep and meaningful (Brown isn't that kind of artist), there's a lot of honesty and wit. "My Wife Thinks You're Dead" is absolutely hilarious, delivered in its stoic manner, and "Joe the Singing Janitor" roots for the underdogs and those behind the scenes ("I can't carry a tune in a bucket/But I carry that bucket with pride").

Having spent most of his career flying underneath radio's radar (despite the fact that "Highway Patrol" remains a radio staple to this day), Junior Brown isn't about to give in. He continues to make country music as honest and as traditional as electric instruments allow. His voice in unmistakable, his picking is unbelievable, and his style is irrisistable. GREATEST HITS may not be the best anthology of his music you could purchase, but it's Junior Brown, so who's complaining?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great guitarist March 2, 2007
By Jess
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Here is a Curb Records collection of one of the unheralded greats of the guitar. Junior Brown hit it fairly big in the early-90's, but has since fell off the scene. It's too bad, because one listen to this collection and you'll be wondering just why he isn't more popular! There are a dozen superbly recorded numbers here, and the sound is excellent; well, the album was produced by Junior Brown himself. There's his biggest hit "Highway Patrol", a superb imitation of the great ET's voice in "My Baby Dont Dance to Nothin' but Ernest Tubb", and even shades of Onie Wheeler in "My Wife Thinks youre Dead". Not to mention his blazing guitar leads ("Sugar Foot Rag"). An affordable collection of great music. A+

Jamieson Brown, Jr., better known by his stage name,

Junior Brown is a fantastic guitarist, er, ah, make

that 'Guit-Steelist, who keeps coming out with very

good to great LPs (and one EP, 'Junior Brown', ***).

Nine releases now and not an even close to being bad

or average one. Pick Up On It!

5.0 out of 5 stars Oklahoma 5 Star December 16, 2006
Format:Audio CD
Junior Brown is such an amazing musician. He played most of these songs at Max's Garage in Muskogee, Oklahoma just a few moments ago. What an awesome experience to stand 5 feet from him and watch him do his musical magic. The songs on this album are terrific and a honky-tonk traditional country music fan can't go wrong with taking it home and listening to it over and over.
