Got my copy of this disc from a concert they did in Saluda, NC. I love it and consider it a classic.

Kerry Knight

Fine live versions of these old songs.
Original Formula does fine versions of these old songs in a delightful and informal way. I really like the energy they have as a duet. They are very spontaneous and impromptu on the vocals and guitars and that’s what makes them a good team. Original Formula really makes it sound easy, and that’s a plus!

Gary Prince

An inspiration to the Art
Original Formula that name says it all about Mr. Alton Elliot ans Mr. Rob Perkins, there music is the most originali have listened to in a very long time.Take note of not only the skill but the heart they but into there music.My collection will include all of there cd's i can find they have given me the inspiration to dust off my guitar and play again.Thanks guy's and keep the music coming.

A Great Live Performance
Once again ,I absolutely loved this album from start to finish whether it be covers such as Ernest Tubb's "I Need Attention Bad" (also found on their prior album - the only overlap) and Grandpa Jones' "Six More Miles To Louisville", traditional numbers such as "You Are My Flower" or self-penned numbers such as "Losing Kind"

I particularly liked their version of "Two Glasses Joe"
- anybody that puts two ET numbers on an album is alright by me. I look forward to their next release


Great old-fashioned country music
If you like it old-fashioned, you'll love this!
