ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Many of the songs are in country rock style and are tributes to many makes of American cars including now-defunct classics. Old Harley Breakdown Blues is just as the title says, in a country swing style, and also references Triumph, BSA and Norton. Speed Crazy is about sports cars, hot rods, racing and all kinds of performance vehicles (land, water and snow). I Want to Ride is in a somewhat Beach Boys / California surf style about a guy and his motorcycles. Jenny and Jilly is a fifties rock song (think Crocodile Rock) about sexy pole dancers. There is a traditional Country and Western country style song about a gal in a cowgirl outfit who is the hit at square dances and tail gate parties - a favorite of female listeners. Drinkin' Buddies is about having beers after work to relieve the stress of various jobs. The Grim Reaper is a metal style song. Hollister is a fake documentary about the 1947 so-called biker gang riot in that California town which lead to the 1953 movie The Wild One.
