Track by Track Review
In some ways, this is a curious cover of Buck Owens and the Buckaroos's signature instro. Lonnie Mack is a country picker at heart, and "Buckaroo" is a country instro, yet this has a ringing rock instro sound, with only the beat to tell you it has cactus roots. Solid and spunky, light weight, yet powerful.
It's the whirly twirly sound of the modulated guitar that gave "A Good Woman's Love" it's new title. A bit of carnival, a slow blues, and a light hearted playfulness, with Leslie organ.
