Review

When I first heard the nine-song compilation of Selector Switch On (Rock and Roll), and as a combat veteran of the Vietnam war, I was absolutely astounded by the profoundness of the lyrics and I was touched by the 60s-ish, familiar-sounding melodies. After playing them all several times, I turned to my wife and said 'If you want to learn something about me, listen to these songs.' I think the wives, children and grandchildren of every Vietnam veteran should hear these tunes... particularly the track Changing of the Guard. And I know every Vietnam veteran who hears these songs will say the same thing I did: There it is, man. --Charles Doc Newcomb, Navy Medic

'.... it's a wonder political opposites Waszkiewicz and Jones got together in the first place. But the music holds up surprisingly well, partly because it was originally intended to sound like something out of the past, in sync with '60s rock, folk and blues, and partly because, in light of the war in Iraq, many of its themes still resonate. 'Loaded Gun,' for example, concerns post-traumatic stress disorder: 'Haunted by dreams you can't outrun / Now you share your bed with a loaded gun' .... Waszkiewicz and Jones manage to colorfully evoke a wide variety of moods on this recording....' Friday, August 3, 2007 --From Mike Joyce at the Washington Post

'...a top-quality CD of rootsy rock.... all about (being in-country)...' --Veteran Magazine, 2007
