Excellent offering from Todd Snider-led 'supergroup', covering the work of a variety of American songsmiths, all thematically linked by their depiction of the difficulties of life on the margins.

Outstanding are "Blackland Farmer", "I Don't Have A Gun" and a pleasingly "out there" version of Randy Newman's "Mr President Have Pity On The Working Man". Not far behind are the emotive "Straight To Hell" "Down To The Well" and a lump-in-the-throat version of Gillian Welch's "Wrecking Ball".

Hayes Carll's thumping "Stomp and Holler" boasts the inspired couplet: "I'm like James Brown only white and taller / All I wanna do is stomp and holler". It's such a winning line that the band do it twice, presumably in case anyone missed it first time round.

Only two song choices blot the copybook: "Welfare Music" (chosen more for its title and subject matter than its inherent musical appeal?) and the equally unremarkable rocker "Another Train", but overall the album is a winner and it would be fascinating to see what this group could do with all-new original material. Hopefully we'll get that opportunity before too long.

Tremendous blues rock stuff from (almost) supergroup. Picking songs from the 80's right up to now the HA make sweet sounds full of righteous feeling for the blue collar people who live lives on the limits.

this album is simply amazing and is the first album I have loved from start to finish in a while. It is a combination of: Jesse Ed Davis, Dr John, Taj Mahal, post Duanne and Berry Allman Brothers with some Delaney and Bonnie thrown in. I have hardly stopped playing it and am hoping that they produce more albums. what a supergroup as well and I think Neal Casal's guitar playing is wonderful and hopefully he will combine this with CRB. It is irritating that the LP is spread over 4 sides when two would have been fine!

Great album by very experienced musicians who have mostly worked with each other before. Not one duff track on the album.
Neal Casal's excellent guitar playing comes through on most tracks.
I would recommend this album to anyone who appreciates good musicians who obviously work so good together.

It's just too loud. It calms down a bit towards the end, but by then your ears are ringing. It's a shame because there are some good songs on this C.D..
