BR5-49 is one of the most successful country bands today. They play real country music, in the good old style. This is a great album with a lot of great country/rockabilly/hillbilly songs. A great mixture of ballads and rockin' up tempo songs. This is the best album of the 4 that BR5-49 has released. Their other albums are "BR5-49", "Live At Robert's" and "Coast To Coast".

It's hard to point out any favourite tracks, because they are all great. If I have to choose, I would say There goes my love, which is a great cover of this Buck Owens song, and Goodbye Maria, written by Chuck Mead in BR5-49.
