This very talented Swedish western swing band has just released their first CD. There are eight cuts in all by these four wonderful musicians. Peter Sundstedt is heard playing rhythm guitar and doing vocals, Pontus Juth plays upright bass, Peter Stromquist plays lead guitar and Petter Tornqvist plays some awesome steel guitar as well as Dobro and does backup vocals.
This top class album opens up with the blues classic Crazy Blues. Then there is the first of three originals written by band members. Vocalist, Peter Sundstedt wrote Always Wish the Best for You and Death of Me. The other original, Worst of Me was written by band steel guitarist, Petter Tornqvist. There are also two that are borrowed from the great Bob Wills, Cindy Walker's Sugar Moon and the pop standard Who Walks in When I Walk Out. The group shows their versatility by going to the Gene Autry library for Mexicali Rose and to the Delmore Brothers for Fast Express.
The cost of the CD is 100 Swedish kronor, which today is approximately $12 US. It can be ordered on line from: www.asgoodasbrothers.com, iTunes or cdbaby.
