The education continues: I didn't know of Dan Baird before coming across this album, and I have never knowingly heard a Georgia Satellites' [Baird's first band] song or album. I have clearly missed someone with whom I have a musical affinity: americana-rock/rock-americana - it is both punchy and melodic. Think an amalgam of Tom Petty, Neil Young, Keith Richards and others, perhaps John Mellencamp, and you have your genre. This is a top-notch exponent of that style, track after track. I have this morning read some enthusiastic reviews of the band playing live, and that comes as no surprise.
