It's too bad that the Geezinslaw Brothers didn't have any major hits, because their lack of chart success might prevent their fine and funny late-'60s Capitol recordings from being reissued. The duo made the country Top 100 three times during their stint with Capitol, but never cracked the Top 40. My Dirty, Lowdown, Rotten, Cotton-Pickin' Little Darlin' is their second album for the label and contains the hit "Change of Wife," which is the only original composition on the album. The other songs are novelties written by assorted country greats such as Bill Anderson, George Jones, and Roger Miller. The excellent title track, from the pen of Jack Clement, apparently was never released as a single. Less hokey than Pinkard & Bowden and less hillbilly than Homer & Jethro, the sometimes serious Geezinslaws nonetheless belong within the pantheon of great country comedy duos.
