On Easy Livin', the debut album by Southern Hospitality, the trio pursue their own brand of modern southern rock. The Tab Benoit-produced session features 12 tracks that include the western swing tribute "Mile After Mile," featuring the excellent lap steel guitar work of Damon Fowler. Willie Bobo's "Fried Neck Bones and Home Fries" is a salute to Santana and allows these guys to stretch and show off their musical chops. Pianist Victor Wainwright is the driving force behind the fast boogie numbers "Shoestring Budget," "Come Back Home," and "Good Time." The album's closing track, "Sky Is What I Breathe," which is similar to the acoustic, laid-back side of the Allman Brothers or the Band, wraps up a great first effort for Southern Hospitality.
