In 1991, my friend Jim introduced me to Frank Allison and the Odd Sox, and my life has never quite been the same since. They were the band I really felt like I could relate to.

On the surface, they were like so many others: a bunch of guys trying to make a name for themselves, earn enough cash to get by, and maybe make it in the big-time. But there was something more. The goofy lyrical meter, the inventive rhymes that never felt forced, the songs about strange but familiar characters, and a sort of rollicking cartoon pirate fun combined to make this the band I always wanted to hear more from.

Back in the day, Hokey Smoke! was sold out before I could pick up a copy. This reissue is a phone call from cherished friends. The first listen was even better than I expected. The mix allows room for each instrument and player to be identified and given his due. While Frank is the band leader and creative force, the Odd Sox were a solid lineup in any context. They could run from rambunctious to soul-stirring as the situation warranted.

If you missed the band in action, I strongly recommend this album as a great introduction. From the big and wild sound of "The Boat She's In," to the haunting "Remus Road"; from the pining love song "Girl Down the Street," to the quiet introspection of "Leland Smith," this is both an album and a band who refused to be pinned down and labeled. For that, they deserve respect. For their music, they deserve love.

This is the very definition of midwestern folk-rock. It is fun, catchy, surprisingly deep at times (lyrically), universal in it's message, and eminently listenable. These songs paint a mental image of youthful innocence and exuberance for life's simple pleasures.

Do yourself a favor and listen to this record a few hundred times.
