A sure sign of an el cheapo production is two different spellings of the artists' name, one on the front cover and one on the back. Even without the spelling mistakes, this is definitely one low-budget album release, the cover art perhaps picked from a catalogue of ready-mades. Stewart is a country artist who, although not nearly as well known as George Jones or Buck Owens, sings the same kind of hard country honky tonk. He has an authentic wail to his voice, and the backup band has a simple but effective kick, the kind that comes naturally or not at all. It's impossible to get too much of this kind of relaxed, swaying country boogie beat, sometimes known as the Ray Price shuffle.
