2010-03-09The Steel Wheels have rolled out one great release of old time sounding folk, blues and gospel to capture their audience through all fourteen tracks. Fans of bands such as the old Crow Medicine Show will appreciate how this four person band from Virginia can make their old time acoustic music sound as if it could have been recorded 50-60 years ago, yet still sound fresh today. Trent Wagler's raspy vocals sound as if he had just returned from the old west during the middle of a dust bowl. It is this lack of polish accompanied with some terrific fiddle, guitar, mandolin and upright bass playing that makes this release a terrific slice of American roots music. Reviewed By: Gregg Saur
