Consumer Guide Reviews:

Semi Crazy [Curb, 1996]
the essence of Western swing--jazzy picking, lousy singing, and a light heart ("Gotta Get Up Every Morning," "Venom Wearin' Denim") **

Long Walk Back [Curb, 1998]
Virtuosity as novelty act, meaning virtuosity that knows itself ("Stupid Blues," "Peelin' Taters"). **

Mixed Bag [Curb, 2001]
"Cagey Bea" Choice Cuts
