Album Notes
Playing old-school twang with an up-to-date energy, California country-rock band Rancho Deluxe were formed in 2005 by songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist Mark Adams and lead guitarist Jesse Jay Harris. Harris came by his interest in roots music naturally; his father is Greg Harris, a musician who recorded with Skip Battin, Sneaky Pete Kleinow, and the post-Gram Parsons Flying Burrito Brothers in the 1970s and '80s. Adams and Harris met in college and bonded over their shared interest in classic country and roots rock styles, and in time they began working up songs together. Rancho Deluxe released their self-titled debut album in 2006, with Adams, Harris, and bassist Graham Harris joined by a handful of notable guest musicians, including drummer Don Heffington (formerly of Lone Justice), pedal steel guitarist Jaydee Maness (who worked with Buck Owens, Eric Clapton, and The Byrds), and keyboard man Skip Edwards (who has cut sessions with Lucinda Williams, Dwight Yoakam, and Michelle Shocked). While Graham Harris left Rancho Deluxe as a full-time member following the release of their debut album, he played on the sessions for their second release, 2008's True Freedom, which reunited the studio crew that recorded the first disc. ~ Mark Deming, All Music Guide

Rancho Deluxe - True Freedom
Another great album,superb musicians,excellent original songs,and great vocals with a hint of Marty Stuart.

Gary D. Carr

Excellent music!
In a perfect world, "Sleep When You're 80" would be a big hit. I must've listened to that song five times on the way home from work, and it made me feel a whole lot better.

I don't have enough superlatives to convince you to get this disc -- I followed a link from Freight Train Blues, and found a gem ... great pickin', great writing, great harmonies, and the breezy quality of the Sunny State of California.

These guys deserve all the success that comes their way.
