EDITORS’ NOTES

Perennial Americana underdog Tim Easton relocated to Nashville and recorded this set inspired by '50s rockabilly and blues in just five days with producers Brad Jones and Robin Eaton. Years of consistent touring have tightened his backing group into an outfit that knows all the chords Easton's likely to use, and together they mow down these quick, hard-rocking tunes. Easton does a good job keeping the genre alive with tunes like "Lickety Split," "Little Doggie (1962)," "Four Queens," and "Crazy Motherf***** from Shelby, Ohio," where the precise and energetic lead guitar work invigorates the songs for a new generation. The blues come around for the classic sentiments of the electrified "They Will Bury You" and the acoustic "Gallatin Pike Blues." The title track breaks the format with a singer/songwriter duet. Fiddler Megan Palmer adds a sweet touch on an instrumental tribute to Levon Helm, "Knock Out Roses."
