ASLEEP AT THE WHEEL

Reinventing the Wheel

2007-04-11

Asleep at the wheel for me has always one of the best Western Swing bands ever. When I saw the title of this CD being “Reinventing the Wheel” I was worried they would try to change their style. This reinvention includes two new vocalist & I believe one of their first female leads with the amazing Elizabeth McQueen on tracks like “I Don’t Care If The Sun Don’t Shine” & “I’m An Old Cow Hand’ &Jason Robards on “Am I right { Or Amarillo}. The Blind Boys of Alabama also lend some great vocals on “The Devil Aint Lazy” After only one listen to this disc you will discover that this band brings as much Fun, Swing; Boogie-Woogie & Old time western sounds as any disc of their 38 year career. This Wheel is only picking up steam & I only hope they roll into a town by us soon. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
