AllMusic Review by

The debut disc from Atlanta-based Buffalo Nickel, Long 33 and 1/3 Play is a passionate dose of roots rock injected with strong hook-laden jangly pop. Lead vocalist Gary Stier penned the majority of these 12 originals, whose bittersweet writing and vocals sounds like a combination of Steve Earle and Michael Stipe. Added musical support is provided from Benmont Tench and Mike Campbell of Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers, Gary Louris of the Jayhawks, and Kenny Aronoff from John Mellencamp's band.
