Vintage elements in contemporary dressing (as in “salad”)!  In other words, here we have a most edible offering for those who can take their classic styles beat driven and chewy!  Ok, “Buffalo Bill’s Defunct,” the one track billed as a “Western Anthem,” is actually a Rock Chant…but it’s a party.  Chill!

The Carolyn Sills Combo is no copy of any group.  Not even an homage to one, although “Rotary Phone Blues” does sort of lean toward Les Paul & Mary Ford.  Basically they do what they want.  They deliver a clever Rockabilly Swing arrangement on “Big Canoe” (I love the whistling and voice harmonizing on the bridge)!  And then they come back with “Even Villains Once Were Babies” with refrain lyrics that may burn the braids of the uber-staid!  Then there’s the Western-styled but eye-opening “Along The Pelican Trail,” Swing romps “Tinker To Evers A Chance,” “Hot Tamales” and “Boot Heel Drag” and…in keeping with the non-theme…“Catalina Island,” a samba tempo piece with semi-Hawaiian steel!

Don’t pigeonhole this herd!  They’ll bolt on ya.  Deal with it!!  Thirteen tracks.
