The only problem with this CD is it didn't get any airplay on our middle of the road FM stations with their top 400 play lists. This is just some of the coolest southern rock around with country influences. Pirates are on fire here!

This album should have been a huge success. A solid piece of work from start to finish, this debut recording just didn't reach enough ears. Not really a commercial Country music group and not exactly a Country/Southern Rock band, The Pirates' found a middle ground with their relaxed vocals and at times, stunning instrumental work. This CD is loaded with superb songs, mostly written by the band's own members. Throw in an unreal cover of Hank Williams' "Honky Tonk Blues" and you have a near perfect disc. The spectacular instrumental song "Jolly Roger" flies by and leads without hesitation into the song ""Pirates Of The Mississippi", both excellent tracks. "Speak Of The Devil" and "I Take My Comfort In You" are as well written as they are performed and are two of the best cuts to be found here. "Rollin' Home", "Down And Out In Birmingham" and "Redneck Rock & Roll" are almost Southern Rockers, but somehow The Pirates keep the energy harnessed and place their own unmistakable stamp on the performances. Oh yeah.....there is that "Feed Jake" song, a nice tale, but maybe the least of the excellent tracks here. Someday this CD will disappear from the used CD market and one fine album will be gone for good. Don't miss out.

The Pirates Of The Mississippi were a good band. This was their first cd. The lead single was the lead track on the cd. The Hank Williams classic Honky Tonk Blues. They put a modern beat and instrumentation to it and really rocked it. But their next single became their signature song in a career that turned out to have not too many hits. Which was too bad for all of us. Feed Jake, what can I say about that song. If you ask me the best song of 1991. At the time I had a dog that was 9 years old. A female boxer who was (and still is) my favorite dog. The Pirates were on some t.v. show getting ready to sing this. She was laying beside my chair and I told her. "Listen to this, this is your song".
The Pirates could do any kind of song from the classics like Honk Tonk Blues to original songs. And they were good musicians also. The song Jolly Roger/Pirates Of The Mississippi is mostly instrumental with a killer steel guitar and then they sing in the second part of the song. Bill McCorvey chewed gum while he sang and he had a really good voice. I thought that this cd was good enough that I bought everything that they ever put out. I dont really know why they never were bigger.

Got this CD for one song- well worth the effort!! The CD itself had no scratches or marks, but the case did have a harline crack in it. Thanks for offering.

There was only one song I really wanted off this CD. I could never seem to find it online thru youtube, torrents, etc. so I bought for mostly nostalgia really. but with Amazon free shipping program it was a good deal when bundled with some other items I needed/wanted.
