5.0 out of 5 stars Hickin' and clickin' October 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I met Dan in a bar in Philadelphia in '71, it was just before his show. He seemed quiet and pensive. The show began and he transformed the place with his palm tree backdrops and the Lickettes. Their music style was unique even back then, melding 40's swing with country, rock and humor. 30 years later I listen to the songs, a smile spreads across my face and my feet start bopping. As musicians they're really tight. The music is, so from the heart, honest. Attitude is a little Steve Martin with a lot of soul. Treat your self to this album it will definately lift you!

5.0 out of 5 stars A fun, fun CD! September 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This CD is a mixture of studio tracks from the earlier "Strikin it Rich" album and several live tracks. Lots of variety, difficult to categorize but worth the listen if you are into a jazz, country, rock, folk, blues thing - with a twist. The violin solo on the "I Scare Myself" track would shut down both the devil and that kid from Georgia! This CD kept me awake on a long, late night drive down I94 and for that, I am grateful. It may be the most fun to listen to CD in my collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars From Boulder 1972 to New Jersey 2002 March 18, 2002
Format:Audio CD
30 years ago (yikes!) I saw Dan Hicks and the Hot Licks at a bar on the Hill in Boulder called Tulagi. Bought the album and listened to it until it died.
Last night "The Sopranos" closed out with "Where's the Money". I went to Amazon to see if just possibly, I could find the CD. How cool that there are 4 to choose from! Still fresh, still toe-tappin', feelin' good music.

5.0 out of 5 stars There has never been another group like these guys. March 24, 2000
Format:Audio CD
The spring I graduated from high school, my boyfriend and I saw these guys open for Elton John of all people. We couldn't believe our ears. They were the hippest, tightest, swinging-est band we'd ever heard. In fact, most of the audience didn't know what to make of them, but I found a lifelong favorite. Give this disk a listen.

5.0 out of 5 stars You will be enjoying this music 25 years from now!!! October 3, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
I have enjoyed this musician and entertainer since the 70's. I may put him on the shelf for a while, but I always come back. If you ever get a change to see him, do it.
