Like a day at The County Fair, nothing could be more fun than these twelve tunes, back to back.
Hey! Barnum and Bailey ... "can you use one more clown" ... the song says. This tune tells it like it is when your baby kicks you out. Frozen pot pies and TV dinners can wear you out ... not to mention sleepin' on the couch at your best friends house ... ha! It's a Hoot! in the same spirit as a day at The County Fair.
"Barlight" - Groovy, Funky, Get-Down-with-yo’-bad-self-honky-tonk-Bluegrass Special … Based on the nursery rhyme yo’ mama most likely rocked you to sleep with “Starlight, Starbright”, when converted to a genuine honky-tonk Bluegrass Special is about as much fun as you can have with a fiddle and a bow dontcha know … check it out.
"The County Fair" - Popcorn, Cotton Candy, a ferris wheel, the carousel, the muscle man who weighs 1,000 pounds, a fortune teller with a two headed snake ... It's the backdrop for a day of nuthin' but fun until ... yes, until this guy's gal lays her baby blues on "Elvis" ... or something dang near like Elvis. Does he manage to hang on to his gal or ? Check it out. It's a Bluegrass Delight.
"Jack Of All Trades" - written by master story-teller Gerald Franklin Pierce, it's all here. Every man's story. Few people in life find their real calling and are generally thrown about trying to find themselves. Most are a "Jack of All Trades … and a master of none”.
"Sally Was A Good Ole Girl" - well who doesn't remember Sally. She carried your books to school for you, she did your homework, had a reputation that was somewhat questionable because ALLLLLLLLL the boys liked her ... well you get the picture. Sally Was A Good Ole Girl. Written by the master himself, Harlan Howard, this song has gone unnoticed far too long and fits here like a glove.
"I Want A Little Cowboy" – You never know what to expect when you’re “expectin”.
"You Win Again" - Hank Williams could tell a story of heartache and heartbreak better than any lost soul ... Ever. Originally recorded by Hank himself, this tune has gone on to be recorded in every musical genre on the planet ....
"Jesus At The Wheel" is a drinkin’ man’s Gospel song … go figure. Done in a honky-tonk style, it has a religious message and anybody who “likes to run with the wrong crowd even tho’ they know what’s right” can relate. We’ve all been there at some point in our lives.
"Frankie And Johnny" first appeared in 1869 ... but by whom? Nobody knows who wrote this tune, but no doubt it struck a chord from day one with those fortunate enough to be there. Since that time it's been recorded by everybody who's ever recorded. Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee Lewis, the king himselvis Elvis and the list is endless. It still has as much appeal to this day as ever. A rousing tale of a long-legged geetar pickin’ man who has an eye for the ladies. A true barroom classic now revived in whiskey soaked Bluegrass Style by BJB and the BGB.
"Stoned On Her Blue Eyes" is the classic Truck Driver meets Truck Stop Waitress vignette. It paints a picture of a short-lived one-sided Truck Stop Affair. She simply does her job. Brings him his late-night cup of java only to be interpreted as "true love" by the man in the trucker’s hat. They never touch ... oh, except for their eyes, but she's heavy on his mind as he takes it on home.
"After The Fire Is Gone" - Conway Twitty did it, Conway and Loretta did it, and everybody and his brother has done it. That’s the way it is with Grrrreat Songs. On this cut BJB and the BGB feature Brittany Allyn and the Jordanaires to bring something new to the table on this Country-gone-Bluegrass Legendary smash.
"Folsom Prison Blues" - Ole John wrote this while on duty for Uncle Sam. God has a strrrrrrange way of dropping surreal magic on us when we least expect it. Johnny Cash had no idea this song would outlive him for decades and possibly generations to come. BJ and the boys add a unique touch to this one by combining it with the classic “Orange Blossom Special” technique of speeding it up as it goes to see just how fast this train can Boogie on down the tracks … can your toe tap this fast? There’s only one way to find out ….
