Just Like New
From the opening track, a rollicking cover of Lefty Frizzell's "Shine Shave Shower," the music is audio gold. Horton's rich baritone still kicks like a shot of fresh moonshine, and when it blends with Longmire's honey-sweet alto, your legs start to do things you can't quite explain. Add Barron's steel guitar and Qirko's electric six-string to the mix, all of it anchored by Turner's bass and Klein's utility work on the drums, and there's a whole lot of toe-tapping and foot-shuffling going on. By the time the Western swing send-up of Hank Williams' "Moanin' the Blues" rolls around, you're ready to grab the nearest partner and make like a cowboy stretching his legs in a Wyoming watering hole after a long ride on the trail.
