Specializing mostly in Americana, the Lost Highway label also makes occasional dips into vintage R&B and traditional country, as this brief ten-song sampler shows. Among the standouts are Kim Richey's tense, modal "No Judges," the gospel drive of Ruth Brown's "Mama, He Treats Your Daughter Mean," and the classic country of Hank Williams' "Honky Tonkin" and Willie Nelson's "Picture in a Frame." Elvis Costello also makes an appearance here with the loopy "The Monkey."
