Customer Review

on September 19, 2010
As a fan of Uncle Tupelo and then Wilco and Son Volt at the time, I immediately enjoyed Golden Smog's debut album Down by the Old Mainstream. For whatever reason when I bought Weird Tales I gave it a couple of listens but it just didn't grab me. Flash forward to a couple of years ago (2008?) and a 7 hour drive for a vacation and I was looking for something (out of my 500+ CD's) that I hadn't heard in a while and put this on. Wow. Talk about a trifecta of great opening tunes. I could listen to tracks 1-3 on repeat and be happy for a long time, and the rest of the album mostly lives up to that. If you like the Jayhawks, Wilco and the like, I'd consider this a must. I'm not sure why I didn't get this at the time but wish I had because I probably blew a few chances to see them live before Tweedy got so successful with Wilco.
