Product description

NEW Combo BLUWAVS CD and FLAC FILE

Amazon.com

Dale Watson wears his roots on his sleeve, and his music seems better off because of it. His Texas-via-Bakersfield honky-tonk shuffles, swaggers, and steams down the highway on this surging collection of 14 original driving songs. Once you get past the obvious comparisons to Buck Owens and especially Merle Haggard (in both timbre and phrasing), you realize that Watson's resonant, fat baritone and his fluid Telecaster twang stand on their own considerable merits. Sure, "Big Wheels Keep Rollin'" may owe a debt to Hag's "White Line Fever" and "Exit 109" may remind one of Johnny Bond's "Hot Rod Lincoln," but these are compliments of a high order, not dismissive remarks. Songs such as the ode to coffee "Help Me Joe," the slow-churning "Drag Along & Tag Along," and the breakneck "I'm Fixin' to Have Me a Breakdown" show a deep absorption of the hardcore Bakersfield honky-tonk style. Much of the credit goes to pedal steel man Ricky Davis and the rock-solid but subtly sophisticated rhythm section of Preston Rumbaugh and Brian Ferriby. --Marc Greilsamer
