Deep-throated Dale Watson effectively channels his classic country influences on this release, recorded in Memphis, utilizing his songwriting skills effectively. Songs including the title track and “The Dumb Song” are dead-on reminiscent of George Jones. No surprise, one song is titled “Johnny and June,” a reference to the great Cash couple. Watson’s fandom of great country music is no secret, and as well-crafted as this release is, he brings nothing new to the table. Break out your old Hank Williams records, folks, or find them at your local record store.
