I have both of these original albums (and several other of Rusty's) on LP somewhere in my storeroom back in Texas. I had special ordered them used in the '80s after they were already out of print. I had to wait many months for a locating service to find them for me... Now I've waited years to get them on CD. The sound is perfect on this re-release. I also like how all what appear to be the original album credits and such are included in the several page foldout. Long live the Filler Brothers! There's a long (several page) write-up on Rusty dated August 2002 inside as well but I haven't read it yet. My plea is to Westside Records (a label out of the UK!) to re-release all the other old Rusty Wier albums too. As soon as "Stoned Slow Rugged" comes out I'm going to order it. I keep checking to see. I am aware that some of this stuff is slowly coming available on Rusty's website. I've heard a CD of Black Hat Saloon ordered from that website that sounded like it was a copy of an old scratchy LP. I'm wondering why this "2 in 1" CD from Westside is not listed anywhere on Rusty's website (as of the time of writing this)? I hope Rusty is getting royalties, I'll be [mad] if he's not. If you've never seen Rusty play live, hop on the next plane to Austin and go see him. He's a friendly guy and he'll pull up a stool and chat a while. Order this CD now. It's great music that even people who never thought they liked "Outlaw Music" will like. It's rockin' out countrified stuff with real class (yes, class).

Hats-off to Westside Records in the UK for an excellent job in the reissue of these two great Rusty Wier albums on CD. The sound quality is fantastic and I recommend getting it before it disappears.

Rusty Wier.

I've never met the man, but I've been a follower of his music since the heyday of outlaw country (circa mid-1970's).

Wier is a singer-songwriter that never quite received the fame as some of his 'outlaw' contemporaries (i.e., Willie Nelson, Waylon Jennings, Michael Murphy, Jerry Jeff Walker and David Allen Coe), still his music is solid - rock solid...and it rocks.

"Stacked Deck" is Wier at his bluesy-est.

Give a listen to his version of "Lola" (written by Fleetwood Mac guitarist Lindsey Buckingham) or "Black Molly Blues" and you'll hear what I mean.

On Black Hat Saloon", Wier connects with a part of Texas honky-tonk story telling.

Each song is a well-painted picture, described in a way that only Wier can.

Here's a tip to those in the music biz: it would be smart to release a compilation CD, including tracks from his other albums, including "Don't It Make You Wanna Dance".
