Nice Job

Another good effort from Ben, Brad and Coop, I have enjoyed this album. It is a good example of Red Dirt music and shows some of the skills of the players and songwriters. Jimmy LaFave's Red Dirt Roads is super, along with the Ranger's own tunes Sugar & Spice, Lavena, Stillwater etc.. I also enjoyed the Stones cover of Wild Horses. The contributions of other players, Don, Randy and Jimmy are appreciated, along with Augie Meyers. If you like RedDirt Music, then this will be good example for your collection. As a displaced Okie on the East Coast, I switch my Ipod to this album and feel like I'm home.

Grassroots Music at its best!

I love this album and would highly recommend it to anyone who loves good ole bluegrass/country. It is"old school" with a modern flavor. I love that they havn't taken on the commercialized New Country but yet still stay fresh and new. Red Dirt music - the originals!

About Red Dirt Rangers

As their name suggests, alt-country upstarts the Red Dirt Rangers are practitioners of the hard-to-define blend known as "red dirt music" (named for the reddish-brown soil of central Oklahoma and pioneered by folks such as Jimmy LaFave and Bob Childers). The group met at Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, and their country-rock-folk sound can fuse the disparate strands of Texas swing, Woody Guthrie, Bakersfield country, and the Grateful Dead during one performance. The Red Dirt Rangers released their debut, Red Dirt, in 1993, and throughout that decade exhaustively crisscrossed their home state. They have also released a children's album, Blue Shoe, and have appeared on the compilations Pastures of Plenty: An Austin Celebration of Woody Guthrie and The Songs of Route 66. With production help from veteran Lloyd Maines, the albums Oklahoma Territory and Ranger's Command followed in 1996 and 1999, respectively. ~ Erik Hage
