Product Description

Product Description

1996's 12 Golden Country Greats is the Pennsylvania duo's 5th full-length but the first to stick to just one style which was, surprisingly enough, country music. That said, the title of the album is only half-correct as there's actually only 10 songs here, why? You'll have to ask Dean and Gene that one. Featuring some of Nashville's greatest session musicians (including "Pig" Robbins, Charlie McCoy, and the Jordanaires), this is one of Ween's finest records to date, with that classic Ween sense of humor filtered through a distinct countrypolitan sound. A classic reissued on 180 gram vinyl.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ween just stretching their limbs... Aug. 15 2007
By Ryan
Format:Audio CD
I wouldn't recommend this for first time ween listeners... It's sarcastic, at some points hillarious, yet somehow sounds strangely authentic, and will have you singing along all the way through. But...
This is only one of the many sides of Ween. I would say if you want to dive into ween, get them all, but i think you would be best off getting Chocolate and Cheese. It stretches on just about all of the genres Ween has hit on throughout the years.
Let that grow on you. If you're into it, dive in. Every Ween album is a treasure you will never regret.

5.0 out of 5 stars A work of uniquely twisted brilliance Feb. 8 2004
Format:Audio CD
This is Ween at their finest. It's simultaneously a parody of and a tribute to country music, mocking mullet-headed wife beaters in "Piss up A Rope" and sending up sad-dog tunes with "Fluffy," while filling every second of every song with great melodies, harmonies, and musicianship. Hiring some of Nashville's finest session players on piano, harmonica, and pedal steel guitar don't, as you might think, make Ween's lyrical quirks stick out as a novelty. Instead it all gels together thanks to the fantastic songwriting -- tracks like "Japanese Cowboy," "I Don't Want To Leave You on the Farm," and "Mister Richard Smoker" are as catchy and tuneful as they come, and could be widely loved classics if they weren't so ... Ween. Biddly-Bah-Boop!! Buy this.

4.0 out of 5 stars the mock country album is a nice one Sept. 28 2003
Format:Audio CD
very good stuff. ween proves to be of those bands that you wouldn't think could do country music. but man would you ever be wrong. this is a lovely mellow album right here and the boys play it on the up and up for the most part. which is surprizing. of course we have the classic Piss Up A Rope which is most certainly not on the up and on. lol. that song is the bomb baby :) everything else is really nice. other favs being Powder Blue & Help Me Scrape the Mucus off My Brain. my only complain is i wish it really did have 12 songs on it. i would have like to have seen So Long Jerry put on here and something else i can't think of right now.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dean & Gene go country Aug. 1 2003
By Skurk
Format:Audio CD
My art teacher actually turned me onto this CD after asking me if I ever listened to Ween. Of course I had; "Chocolate and Cheese" back in '99. At first, it sounded like garbage, seeing as I hate country music, but this ... this is something else. Dean and Gene Ween really offer something new, and country has never sounded like this. "Mister Richard Smoker," "Japanese Cowboy" and "Help Me Scrape the Mucus Off My Brain" are classics in their own, and the sound of "Fluffy" is just downright hysterical, which goes to show that these musicians aren't afraid to broaden the musical horizons and put out something different, which to me, is what music is all about.

5.0 out of 5 stars possibly Ween's best June 12 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
It's tricky to call an album a band's best when it's so atypical, especially when the typical ones (if any Ween release can be called typical) are so excellent. But I don't think any other Ween album can be said to be better than "12 Golden Country Greats." Put this next to "The Pod" and reel, but even standing alone, this is just an excellent, excellent album.

I don't know. Go to Ween.com if you want to hear the rejected Pizza Hut "Insider" pizza slogan and jingle.

5.0 out of 5 stars Coming around Aug. 6 2002
Format:Audio CD
When this first came out - I could find very few Ween fans who liked the album. It was immediately one of my favorites. Coming at the end of the nineties alt-country boom (right around the first Wilco release) the album summed up what the decade had been thinking in a brilliant tongue in cheek way. Songs like "Piss up a Rope" are brilliant in their simplicity and humor, and others like "Fluffy" show that while a country band - its still Ween. The backing group "The Verlaines" are fantastic and the album still impresses me after 6 years. Predating the shift in their music with White Pepper - this album demonstrates a maturity and appreciation of music and form that the duo had not yet exhibited.
