• whitey morgan and the 78's Whitey Morgan and the 78's (CD, £8.50)

    label: bloodshot

    Outlaw's always been the rough-around-the-edges, tuff guy uncle at the country music family picnic. Denim and Leather, not Stetson and Nudie. Hair by Pennzoil, not Pomade. But, in the right hands ó Haggard, Paycheck, Junior, Willie and Waylon and now Whitey Morgan ó Outlaw is more than beards and bandanas, ink and attitude, it's goddamn folk music. Itís about doing the best you can, about getting by and about cold beer and colder women ó everything that keeps the honky tonks full on a Saturday night. Itís about standing up when itíd just be easier to fall down.
