I know, some of you will be thinking 'Oh No.................Country!' but have you ever listened to it? This album by the living legend Charlie Daniels, songwriter, singer, guitarist and fiddle player will surely make you think again. After all Mr Daniels is a Grammy winner, an inductee into The Grand Ole Opry, and an inductee into the Musicians Hall of Fame, so we are not talking about some mediocre muscian here.
The fourteen tracks on this album are all greats and will have your toes tapping. And if you think country is just sloppy ballads think again, after all there are tracks on here that are regularly played on rock radio stations throughout the US. Like rock, country has its roots deep in the blues tradition, where the best music comes from. If you don't normally listen to country this album could change your mind and open up a genre of new music to you.
If you love good lyrics and great music then get this album. If you have never downloaded any MP3 tracks or an album from Amazon before, don't be worried. Things are a doddle, you order the item and when you go to the checkout and pay you will be prompted to download their installer program thingy, and then after that is done and you run it your selection is downloaded. It really is a doddle, this is only the second time I have done it without any problems on two diferent computers, running two different operating systems. My dad uses this service on Amazon loads of times for his ipod and never has had any problems.

Charlie Daniels does not make dud songs or albums. You can buy any of them with the confidence that the songs will be stories, upbeat and cheerful and the sort of music you can stick on anywhere. This is a kind of best of and I've already reviewed one of those. There are additional tracks on this, the legend of wooly swamp being my favourite.
