AllMusic Review by

This is a fine demonstration of this band's broad range of talent. While keeping it light and lots of fun, the Wanktones move from stone-cold rockabilly into hardcore C&W without missing a beat. A great performance from this wild foursome, they also do a wonderful version of the Irish classic "Danny Boy." With some Bob Wills and some Buck Owens thrown in for good measure, the Wanktones prove they are one of the hottest live acts around. With the authentic sounds of real bowlers in the background, there is something seriously authentic about this band and this recording. While a studio project can be manipulated and made to sound great, the real test of a performer's mettle is the live performance, and the Wanktones pass with flying colors.
