Asleep at the Wheel: Asleep at the Wheel [Epic, 1974]
This band has stopped trying to straddle their original home, West Virginia, and their spiritual one, Berkeley. Now comes the straight country push, and just in case the straight country isn't buying fetching Western swing with a '70s accent, once or twice those fiddles even sound like strings. The losses, in sprightliness and fantasy and danger, aren't fatal. But why not just listen to Bob Wills?
