Short Description
  • Like any worthwhile homage, the artists showcased here succeed by evoking the humor and enthusiasm of the music they love rather than strictly emulating the original versions of these songs…There’s more here, lots more. Some you’ll like, some you won’t. What’s interesting is the breadth and depth of this compilation.

    — No Depression
  • The record is an all-night party, with moments when the whiskey hits everyone too hard.

    — Greil Marcus, Interview
