Imagine a singer who puts you in mind of Lefty Frizzell, with a silky smooth voice, a great bunch of new songs and a pure country backing with lots of great steel and fiddle and you have the recipe for one mighty fine album! I agree with Joe Fish of Greater Manchester Radio in his excellent sleeve notes, most of these songs are so listenable it just makes you want to keep playing the CD! The album kicks off in great style with "Sitting By The Kitchen Table" and hardly lets up. Roger wrote five tracks but not the tribute to his Alabama colleague Hank Williams. Benny Berry wrote "The Crossroads" and also adds a little harmony. "Country Preacher" written by Roger is a great track, suffice to say this is one of the best debut albums I have heard in a long time.
