Dawson's second album since his mid-'80s rediscovery is an above-average latter-day rockabilly effort, sensibly avoiding temptations to modernize the sound with too much clutter. Dawson's voice has lowered considerably since his early days, meaning that instead of sounding like a little kid, he sounds like a young man (although he was about 50 when this was recorded). The American CD reissue adds a bonus cut, "Sloppy Drunk," not on the original British release.
