Shine up your boots and get that hair slicked back because Live from Robert's Western Wear is the next best thing to a trip to the honky tonks of lower Broadway. BR5-49 was the prime mover behind the revitalization of Nashville's live country music scene, and this album documents the joyous mess that is their live show, complete with ambient yee-has and the band glad-handing the crowd for tips. Lest numbers like "Me 'n' Opie" have you thinking that the band is all about kitsch, check out their cover of the Louvins' bloodthirsty ballad "Knoxville Girl." Well, actually, it's a traditional number, but the Louvin Brothers made it famous, and the band does a dandy, Louvin-like job with the song's eerie soaring harmonies. Live at Robert's is a rip-roaring three-day bender of an album: sometimes sloppy, never especially original, but always a heck of a lot of fun. --Mary Park

Just when you thought everything out of Nashville was pop-country pap, a band comes out of the country capitol of the world that alludes to an earlier time when the honky-tonk coming out of the juke joints called to you to come inside.
BR5-49 (the name refers to a phone number on from the old Hee-Haw television show) lets it all hang out on this all too brief live album "Live From Robert's" It is a high-spirited retro country album recalling the influences of Hank Williams and the Louvin Brothers mixed with the atmosphere of a Saturday night hoedown at a 1940's roadhouse honkytonk. The EP is rough and bawdy including a couple brief interuptions for the band to sell boots and banter with the well-lubricated crowd. If you want to know what's been happening in the last couple years in the Lower Broad scene in Nashville, this is the album for you.

Like most people that are actually FROM Nashville, I hate country music, but these guys aren't your typical country band. BR5-49 is the punk rock of country bands. They got all of the humor ("Me n' Opie Down by the Duck Pond," "Bettie Bettie") and catchy sounds ("Hillbilly Thang") that keep most punk bands going. Why can't all country be like this? I can't wait to get their self-titled studio album...

We have been to Robert's in Nashville and it is a great place and this CD really gives the true atmosphere of Robert's This is the first of BR5-49's music that I have purchased and will purchase much more. This is a sound I LOVE.

I'd been searching for "Opie - n- Me" and found the only way to get it was from the CD - no downloads available that I could find.
I am trying to reduce the amount of hardware (discs) I have but in this case it was a good purchase. All of the songs on the disc are great and it appears that everyone at Robert's was having a really good time, especially the band.

I'm not a country fan. I bought this CD to use portions of the song "Bettie-Bettie" for my desktop Betty Page theme. BUT, I can't stop listening to it. This is a light, fun, swing beat album. I can't say that I'm a country music fan now, but I think I'm going to try some more BR5-49 anyway.

BR5-49 sound a whole lot like the Kentucky Headhunters might have if they'd missed out on the British Invasion bands. They have the same twisted sense of humor, the same great musical chops, and more than a touch of redneck soul to add a little authenticity to the proceedings. Three stars is not a slap in the face; it's just that this is a decent introduction to a band with a lot of potential. It's still a bit of a work in progress, but hell, gettin' there is half the fun.

These are only a couple songs from the original leaving out some good ones! I have a cassette recording but can't find original CD anywhere. What's up with that?
