EDITORS’ NOTES

Folks familiar with the red dirt Texan twang of Cross Canadian Ragweed may be surprised to hear frontman Cody Canada’s solo project. Those new to the party need not concern themselves with the details because as soon as Canada and company tear into a roots-rocking cover of Randy Crouch’s “Face On Mars,” it’s evident that there’s really something here for everyone. Gary Scruggs and Kevin Welch’s “True Love Never Dies” gets reinterpreted with plenty of funky clavinet accompanied by a grinding Hammond B3 organ before returning to those red-dirt tones on a simmering take of Leon Russell’s “Home Sweet Oklahoma.” Mike Shannon’s “Long Way to Nowhere” gets the early-‘90s alt-country treatment, sounding like a toned-down Uncle Tupelo, while the mellow rhythms and cool grooves of J.J. Cale’s “If You’re Ever In Oklahoma" are kept well intact, as guitarist Seth James picks some bluesy leads that old Slowhand would approve.
