THE TRACTORS

Trade Union

2009-07-18

Showcasing their Oklahoma roots, The Tractors give us plenty of old-school country on this, their first release in six years. There are some interesting collaborations here, including Leon Russell (Good Old Days) and J.J. Cale (Rhythm Bone). There's also some cool honky-tonk on "What Makes Love Go Bad", which features a nice train snare, horn riffs, and dobro. They turn things up a notch on "It's Only Love" to end on a high note.
