On the advice of Bill Kirchen, I bought this cd at a gig in April. Yee Haw! From start to finish, an honest to goodness romp through the world of trukin'. The absence of cheesy country pop is a welcome change you'll enjoy. Try the first two songs for a traditional sound, then get ready for some toe tapping hooks in "Diesel, Diesel, Diesel" or "Semi Truck". If you need a pick me up from the perfectly sad "Miss Marie and the Bedford Blaze", try "I'm Coming Home" or "Truck Driving Man" for some hot guitar to put you in the mood to wave at passing semi trucks just to hear their horn blow in the distance.

One way to escape the cheesy pop that passes for today's country music is to listen to some truck drivin' tunes that speak to the blue collar roots of real country music. This fine collection contains a number of classics updated by contemporary artists as well as tunes by the original artists. Highlights of this CD are Junior Brown's collaboration with the great Red Simpson on Red's classic "Nitro Express" which is as good as their collaboration on "Semi-Crazy" from the album by the same name. The Yayhoos update the genre with their raucous take on "Highway Junkie" while Bill Kirchen gears it up on "Semi-Truck." The songs by the women seem weaker to me because truck driving tunes just sound better when sung by a man. These songs tend to fall into the I'm-left-all-alone-while-my-man-is-on-the-road category like Kay Adams "Mama Was a Rock."
But that's a minor quibble. Get yourself this collection of truck driving CDs for your next long road trip; it'll make the hours on the freeway fly by.

This album is the best thing that has ever happened to truckdrivers since coffee and rest stops. Rig Rock Deluxe captures the feelings, plights of courage, and comradere of the unsung american hero- The Truckdriver. This album explores issues of the "absent husband syndrome" in a jammin song by Kay Adams and BRS-59, and existential spiritual questions that we all ponder as we trek across the open road, "Will There Be Big Rigs in Heaven" by Buck Owens and His Buckaroos. A great must hear album. Makes a great gift for anyone who has driven over eight hours to get somewhere. Check it out!

If you favor country artists that hail from Nashville do not buy this!
If you favor funkabillysleazegrassrock you should buy this!
