The "Heads" Breathe New Life And A Totally Different Twist On All These Cover Songs. They Really Do Defy Categorization. Heavy Metal Country? Country Rock? Rock Country? They Just Continue To Just Play The Music They Want To Play And With "Big Boss Man", They Honor Some Other Artists And Music That Mean Something To Them. Just Simply......Amazing

This is a great album from the Kentucky Headhunters. Their versions of these classic songs breathes new life to every cut. If there was any justice in the music industry this album would be played on every country and rock-n-roll radio station in the nation. The version of "Made in Japan" is the best remake I've heard in years and if widely listened to would be a bigger hit than even the Buck Owens version....and that's saying something. Buy this and play it LOUD. Great job guys.

When the Kentucky Headhunters burst onto the scene in 1989 (after over a decade of perfecting their skills), Nasvhille bands were made up of two types: those that played fiddle-and-steel, and those that did pop country. The Headhunters introduced something new to mainstream country: rock and blues. It's nice to see that, all these years later, they haven't lost their edge.

Revitalizing such hits as Patsy Cline's "Walkin' After Midnight" and Roger Miller's "Chug a Lug" might seem ballsy, and downright blasphemous...except that the Headhunters take these songs and make them their own. There's no trodding over old material here...these songs sound fresh and re-energized, thanks in large part to Doug Phelps's raspy vocals and Greg Martin's incomparable guitar chops. The result is an album of "new" classics--new versions of songs you already know, that you will come to love as much as the originals. BIG BOSS MAN is, simply, an album by one of country's most talented bands, remaking the songs that made them want to sing in the first place--and doing it their way. Like they've always done things.

My neighbors will hate me for playing this compact disc because it is loud and will shake the walls! The Headbangers basically re-write the 12 cover songs presented here. Except for the Bob Dylan cover, nothing is remotely similiar to the original performance. Once again, Greg, Fred, Richard, Anthony and Doug(what a vocal on "You Win Again") deliver the goods. One nit pick, though, I'm still waiting for them to record and/or release "Crossroads". I've heard them play it a couple of times in the late 80's and early 90's.

On Big Boss Man the Kentucky Headhunders are doing covers and they do a great job. When a band does covers of other artist music they have to add a little something to the songs to make them their own. The Kentucky Headhunters did that on every song and the whole cd is great. It is a mix of country, blues and rock and it works. I have liked this band from day one, but if I had to have just one cd by them Big Boss Man would be the cd. Great Music, good job Headhunters.
