COMMANDER CODY

DOPERS,DRUNKS AND EVERYDAY LOSERS

2009-05-05

COMANDER CODY DOPERS, DRUNKS AND EVERYDAY LOSERS Commander Cody remains an enigma of American roots music. On this release he combines new songs with redone classics to tell the stories of dopers, drunks and everyday losers. This CD is a combination of roots rock, outlaw country and a dash of western swing that should have a warning label. After one listen you may find yourself rolling your own, going for the liquor cabinet or enjoying one of your favorite unhealthy vices. Most tracks are Commander originals with the exceptions of the John Hiatt classic “Tennessee Plates” and the “No No Song” which was made famous by Ring Star. You will also find reworked versions of commander classics “Wine Do Yer Stuff” and “Seeds and Stems Again”. The Commander may have lost the Lost Planet Airmen but he sure hasn’t lost his sense of humor or ability to tell a story. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
