AllMusic Review by

The Skeletons' Lou Whitney and D. Clinton Thompson as well as a number of seasoned session vets join Richman as he ventures into Nashville territory. The material consists of a batch of originals, a few covers and a couple of old songs reworked from 1983's Jonathan Sings! The music's country affectations are entertaining without being gimmicky, and Richman sounds right at home in his twangy environs.
