Product Description & Reviews

How far left of center is Kinky Friedman in terms of the country-music establishment? It took some string-pulling from none other than Commander Cody, that bastion of country conservatism, to get Friedman his contract with Vanguard. This 1973 debut would be the Kinkster's only Vanguard release, and it introduced the world to his compelling and confounding musical vision. Everyone remembers absurd titles such as "Get Your Biscuits in the Oven and Your Buns in the Bed" and "High On Jesus," but the real reasons to dig this up are the serious and sensitive songs. "Ride 'Em Jewboy" is a touching Holocaust lyric, and "Sold American," about forgotten country stars and crass commercialism, inspired cover versions from both the Kingston Trio and Glen Campbell. Top Nashville pickers Norman Blake, John Hartford, and Doyle Grisham give the music its authentic country style. --Marc Greilsamer
