Reseña de álbum
This is the monumental debut by one of insurgent country's pioneer bands. Playing with electric instruments, including the all important steel and fiddle, and a good dose of irreverence allowed the band to adhere to their own agenda. This first release was only a taste of the things to come. A combination of original tunes and some dusty covers, Cody & His Airmen were at the head of a parade that continued on through the '90s. Songs by Billy C. Farlow like "Daddy's Gonna Treat You Right" and the ever-popular "Lost in the Ozone" were instant hits with the country-rock and hippie crowds. But, the rednecks loved them, too, and this was an amazing social phenomenon. Cody, whose real name is George Frayne, partnered with Farlow on a number of songs from this first collection that still pack a wallop. "Wine Do Yer Stuff" and the tearful "Seeds and Stems (Again)" left no doubt where these boys were coming from. A strong honky tonk album that swings, Lost in the Ozone is a viable recording. Cover tunes performed with energy and humor won crowds over everywhere. "Hot Rod Lincoln" is still played on outlaw country radio stations, as is "20 Flight Rock," a boogie number that lets everything hang out. With not a single cut wasted, this is one of the buried gems of modern country music that displays guitarman Bill Kirchen at his wildest and Bruce Barlow, Lance Dickerson, Andy Stein, John Tichy, Bobby Black, West Virginia Creeper, Farlow, and Commander Cody comin' out of the shoot ready to change the world for the better.

Put this one on the stereo and STAND BACK! My first concert (I was prolly 13 and my parents didn't know where I was that night), was New Riders of the Purple Sage and Commander Cody (in Nashville where I grew up). Thirty something years later I still remember - I could not sit down for either show. Country, honky tonk, swing, americana, call it what you will, but this one gets you in the gut.
Lost in the Ozone
Itunes--please get "Hot Licks, Cold Steel, and Trucker's Favorites," which is the best Commander Cody album, and one of the best country albums of the 70s.
A classic, still going strong after 30 years...
I remember first hearing Commander Cody and TLPA when I was 15-16yo and thinking, "WOW, this is great stuff." Well, it still it is...as noted by another reviewer, maybe not their best effort but gets 5 stars for the classic songs and its staying power. It rocks as hard as anything around today. Seeing them live back then (not now -- the Commander still tours but it ain't the same) was a true joy. This one is a keeper, real good stuff...with songs like 'Midnight Shift,' 'Lost In The Ozone,' '20 Flight Rock,' 'Beat Me Daddy Eight To The Bar,' etc. this one will stay in your CD player for a long time to come...
