NASHVILLE'S FINEST INSTRUMENTAL GROUP,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Area Code 615/Trip in the Coun (Audio CD)
Those of you that remember the BBC's "Old Grey Whistle Test" will know that the group responsible for the theme tune was Area Code 615. Nashville's finest instrumental group of the late 60's/early 70's (later Barefoot Jerry). Area Code 615 released two albums. The first one was titled simply "Area Code 615" and cmae out in 1969. The second album "Trip In The Country" followed in 1970. The second one being my favourite album of all-time. "Area Code 615" (the first album) consisted of 11 tracks mainly covers including their very own versions of The Beatles "Hey Jude", "Lady Madonna" and "Get Back". But the second one "Trip In The Country" featured more of their own material. From the opening track "Scotland" to the last track "Devil Weed And Me" you can hear a vast difference in style to the first album. On the whole, if you are going to buy a country album, make it this one. Things don't get better than this.
