BR5-49's first full-length disc isn't a bad album, but it offers nothing that hasn't been done earlier and better by nouveau honky-tonk and rockabilly bands in Boston, Austin, L.A., Washington, and Baltimore. Gary Bennett and Chuck Mead, BR5-49's two singing, songwriting guitarists, mix six originals with old songs by the likes of Webb Pierce, Mel Tillis, Ray Price, Moon Mullican, and Gram Parsons. BR5-49 performs with the enthusiasm and competence of the seasoned bar band it is, but neither Bennett nor Mead is a special singer or picker and the rhythm section lumbers along without distinction. One suspects that BR5-49 were signed because they showcased regularly on Lower Broadway in Nashville, where country-music executives who don't get out much thought they were seeing something unprecedented. --Geoffrey Himes

BR5-49 brings the classic Honk Tonk style back to country music. This CD has the Fun Jumpy songs of the classic Honky Tonk artists. It will take you on a mental trip to the the Honky Tonks of the past.

BR5-49 is classic country. I don't even LIKE country, but I adore these guys. They present a fresh, honest approach on this, their first album, with songs penned by the band members, as well as several classic cuts from the country archives. In my opinion, anyone can enjoy this album. I recommend it highly.

Welcome BR549!!! I was fortunate to see a show of theirs in Albany, Oregon. They are great. MUCH, MUCH better than all of the "so called" country today. I wish that more radio stations would play BR549's music. I am sick of hearing Shania (Pop music, not country) every other song on the radio. BR549 makes me want to get up and dance. I will never get sick of them. I think the best concert to see would be BR549 and Chris LeDoux. That's REAL country.

A good, strong sophomore effort from this group, better than 90% of the trash out of Nashville these days. By the way, I know that reviewer Mark Cooper (see above) doesn't have a clue--BR-549 isn't reminiscent of an old bomber--it's Junior Samples phone number for his used car lot (remember Hee-Haw?).

Great album. It's worth the price for the single "Little Ramona" alone,.........but there's so many more worthy and entertaining songs on this fine band's debut album. Great mixture of Western Swing, Traditional Country, and "The Bakersfield Sound", with a little bit of Blue Grass, and Rock and Roll thrown in for good measure. - They Really Swing Y'All.
I missed the release of this LP back in 1996 and Little Ramona's singles chart success in '97, but now I'm very eager to catch up with BR5-49 and their entire catalogue.

Geoffrey-

With all due respect, I have to say you don't know what you are talking about with regard to the signing of BR 549. They signed with Arista, which at the time (1995) was a relatively maverick label by N-ville standards (having signed Alan Jackson when nobody else would, having hand-picked Brooks & Dunn and put them together, and having issued one of the most criminally underrated country CD's of all-time -- LeRoy Parnell's first). BR 549 had a very unique style and was a lot of fun to watch, (especially at Roberts). So, while you may or may not like BR 549, you cannot under any circumstances say they were signed by a label exec that "didn't get out much".

Br5-49 is the greatest new country band I've heard in a long time. Vocals are great, classic guitar licks are fantastic and they have a rhythm section that is really tight. All three albums are great and the musicianship is unbelievable. I prefer the Backyard Beat Show as my personal favorite. I really don't feel that the review from amazon.com is fair. This great band proves it self with one listen of their songs. Please don't take my advice, listen for yourself. You will be convinced.

This CD contains mostly upbeat toe tappin' music that is a joy to listen to over and over. The several remake songs are every bit as good if not better than the originals. Usually I do not like remakes as well as the original version but all of these are an exception. The ballad songs are sung with great feeling. The songs are country and not pop which is refreshing these days when so much so called 'country' music is not country.
