Format: MP3 Music
This album is a quiet Americana masterpiece. On the one hand, the prevailing tone is quiet and introspective and the music is spare -- mostly guitar and steel guitar, with just occasional back-up vocals and drums . On the other hand, the album feels musically complete. The songs, most of which are written or co-written by Peter Cooper, are alternately sweet, funny, touching and witty and the few covers, most notably Tulsa Queen, are beautifully rendered. But the heart of this album is the masterful steel guitar of Lloyd Green, which weaves in and out of each song, rarely taking center stage but, instead, drawing out the emotion of song, richly complementing rather than dominating.

Peter Cooper, while well-known as a Nashville music journalist, flies too far below the radar as a musician to get the attention he deserves. And, further decreasing the attention this album deserves, it was inexplicably, released the same day as another album he collaborated on, Master Sessions, with Last Train Home's Eric Brace (as well as Lloyd Green). But don't let the lack of attention this album will suffer from prevent you from giving it a try. It truly is masterful.

More in the folky singer-songwriter vein than the country music I was expecting. The lyrics are a little too cutesy-poo for me, but I will give Cooper credit for showcasing and paying homage to the brilliant Lloyd Green, whose pedal steel work is beautiful throughout. I pretty much bought it for the great album title alone.

This is the first album in a long time that I cannot stop listening to. It may be Lloyd Green's emotional, spot on pedal steel playing, it may be the great songwriting or it may be the songs I just cannot get out of my head. It is fun, it is sweet, it is pathos, it is just a guy playing the pedal steel along with a guy playing acoustic guitar and singing some very good songs. That's all.

Superlative songwriting and musicianship overall. Green shines on pedal steel, giving us a healthy dose of mastery.
