I like Hoyt Axton because of his talent but also because he is different -- unique voice, style, song writing, and verve. What a loss addiction caused. This CD is a strong collection, with 15% weak or poorly written songs, 25% so-so, adequate Hoyt songs, and 65% brilliant, fun, strong songs from this time in his life. Man, I would have loved to have heard him as an old man. Late in his life, went to see him in concert for the first time. He was drunk and falling off the stool, and the audience was not mad, but sad because it was clear that he was pushing the old mortality index. But Hoyt at his best -- in my opinion, singing In a Young Girl's Mind or Angelina, is such a treat, RIP Hoyt, we continue to enjoy your music. Last night, it made a long drive from the Grand Junction airport to my home 75 miles away a great time, sure glad no one was listening to my singing along. This collection deserves being purchased --- go ahead and do it.
