A number of David Lee Murphy's songs can make listeners have visions of a jukebox spinning tunes in a crowded room filled with the scents of beer and cigarette smoke, like his 1995 hit "Party Crowd." At the core though, his albums offer a good sample of county-pop stylings without forgetting to add in the fiddle and the steel guitar. There are ten tracks on Gettin' out the Good Stuff, Murphy's second full-length recording. He co-wrote three of the songs on this album, but penned the remainders on his own, including "Genuine Rednecks," "I've Been a Rebel (And It Don't Pay)," "She's Really Something to See," and "Every Time I Get Around You," as well as the title track. Murphy's Southern drawl and strong, real-life lyrics make this album a keeper for country fans.
