Album Review

Keith Sykes never got as famous as the likes of Willie Nelson, or even Jerry Jeff Walker, although he traveled in the same outlaw country circles as them ol' boys. His 2004 album, All I Know, makes plain the connections between that '70s-vintage commingling of country and rock & roll and the more recent crossbreeding that got dubbed alternative country: this album could have come out on some little Lubbock or Austin-based label in 1975 or on the Chicago indie Bloodshot 20 years later.

I'm Not Strange, I'm Just Like You followed in 1980, but after releasing It Don't Hurt to Flirt two years later, Sykes spent the next several years best known as a composer, authoring songs...
