iTunes Review

This retrospective compilation of Junior Brown recordings shows that there are three artists living in the body of the Texas-based performer. As the inventor (and sole master) of the hybrid “guit-steel” guitar, Brown is an instrumental innovator and virtuoso. He's also a singer and songwriter who understands the artistry and cleverness required to create a lasting country song. Lastly, he's an iconoclast, remaining faithful to heroes of the '50s and '60s while gleefully pulling strands of jazz, blues, and surf music into his vision of country. Though Brown’s music has a proudly vintage tint to it, the songs are so much fun that his recordings never seem old and musty. He's both hilarious and frighteningly skillful, but the outstanding quality of his music is its energy. “Highway Patrol,” “Freeborn Man," and “Semi-Crazy” provide a jolt of caffeinated early-rock delight. While he's proud to carry on the traditions of Ernest Tubb and Dave Dudley, Brown’s unerring belief in high-voltage electricity gives him equal share in the history of high-energy rock 'n' roll.

Big Red Shoot'in Flames

I believe every American should own a shop vac, a pressure washer and this CD.

freakishly good

this album is what one would expect from a junior brown album. explosively original and enjoyable songs accompanyed with adeptly preformed acoustics which he played on both the steel and electic guitars. on a personal note I found his steel guitar riffs to be on par with some of the greatest steel guitar players in the world like tom morrel. keep it up junior i wanna hear more albums from you!!

Great Fun

This is a great album to listen to while working around in the house, entertaining friends, taking a long drive...It also makes a great gift for anyone who appreciates good Texas flavored music with stories. Brown's voice is so rich to listen to - very compelling- draws you in.
