The Starline Rhythm Boys debut recording, originally released in 2000, out of print for the past few years, is available again as a re-release on Cow Island Music. Produced by Sean Mencher of High Noon fame, “Better Luck“ received extensive airplay and put music fans worldwide on notice that Vermont’s Honky Tonkin’ heroes are a force to be reckoned with.
“These boys remind me of the good old days, with a sound that’s between Memphis and Nashville. It’s good, clean and from the heart-and nowadays that’s fresher.” –Vassar Clements
“This is the Real Deal. The Starline Rhythm Boys know how to make it rock and let it swing. They dish it out full strength, adult dosage. I’ll take all of this I can get.” -Bill Kirchen
“If you’re a fan of classic country and honky tonk music with elements of rockabilly, boogie woogie, bluegrass, western swing and hillbilly blues, you’re gonna love the Starline Rhythm Boys.” –Jim Hilmar, Vintage Guitar Magazine
“The Starline Rhythm Boys are Rollin’ Danny Coane on true blue lead vocals and guitar, Big Al Lemery pickin’ out his Telecaster life and Billy Bratcher slappin’ the upright bass, providing all that bottom and time. They sure can play and everybody sings, really well. And don’t file this one away with your oldies or nostalgic retro types. The Starline Rhythm Boys are playing the American Song – the one that almost got away. We should thank them for that.” –Leroy Preston, founding member of Asleep at the Wheel
