Fun and Funky
I love the sense of fun that weaves through many songs. Folsom Prison Blues had me dancing in my living room- the arrangements and rhythms are great. The arrangement of Corinna is inspired. A unique and talented endeavor.

Review of Songs About Tractors and Stuff
Dennis and Tim have put together a great CD of true Americana music. It is extremely listenable and almost addictive. Great CD to pop into you CD player for a long drive. Dennis covers Folsom Prison Blues in his unique style that puts a great new take on this classic. Dennis' original compositions like Finally Over You and Take a Wuff are so catchy that you will find yourself humming them hours later...I do! Grab a copy of this great CD, stick it into your car CD player and take a long drive and enjoy!!:)

Satisfying Mellow Country/Folk/Rock/Blues good for the soul
This was the one I was waiting for. After a long wait between albums, this CD is a long, cool drink of musical water. Dennis is always so listenable, with his great voice and wonderful writing, you just can't miss getting a full three course meal with this CD. Don't wait, download today and let it help you get through the traffic of life. You'll be glad you did!

This is the real stuff - authentic americana
If your ears don't perk up and your feet start tapping 5 seconds into this CD, check your pulse and call an audiologist. This is good (and tractor-free) stuff.
1st cut: Dennis has re-imagined Folsom Prison Blues into a rootsy rich gumbo of unexpected flavors, while still honoring the weathered Johnny Cash chestnut. (Could this be the birth of hindu-billy?) A truly tasty, toe-tappin' delight.
(2nd) Crazy Old Arms of Mine - the 1st of several DRR originals on the disc - sings like a country classic, and ought to become one.
Other good news:
-17 cuts, and none of it hat&boot pop.
-This is the real stuff - authentic americana.
-two instrumentals.
-Material from songwriters ranging from Gram Parsons to a Louisiana governor.
-Get this!

One of the best releases of 2014
For the past three months this disc has been in my truck, and that is where it belongs, because this is a road trip CD A collection of songs that is best heard in one sitting, preferably driving on a winding rural road. While there are no songs about tractors, there are plenty of tunes that capture an America where tractors are part of the scenery. Dennis and company work their way through a handful of well crafted, compelling original tunes that tackle topics ranging from love lost and won to the escapades of heroes and villains. All of it backed by masterful musicians, with session star Mike Dowling leading the way. As much as I like DRR's tunes, it's the covers on this album that put a huge smile on my face. One of the best, and mostly forgotten, tunes by Rod Stewart, a BeeGees tune that sounds like it spent the last 20 years in Nashville, a stoner's take on Shady Grove, and a light hearted Mr Spaceman gauranteed to have you singing along. You can hear the influences of Johnny Cash, Gram Parsons, Roger McGuin in many ofDennis's tunes, and he does yeoman's work here with his interpretations of their music. If you are looking for a great listening experience get this disc, put it in your car's cd player and start driving-down the coast, over the mountain, through the valley or across the desert-'Songs About Tractors and Stuff' will make a fine sound track for your journey.
