5.0 out of 5 stars King of Anthologies Strikes Again!
Austin Super Producer David Sanger [NOT the New York Times reporter] has acquired a reputation as King of the Anthologies, because of his output of quality work in that type album. This is the first of two collections Sanger has produced honoring The Great American Highway [and as drummer for traveling band Asleep At the Wheel, Sanger knows highways!] The first two cuts...

3.0 out of 5 stars Diamonds in the Rough
Though not of consistent quality throughout, this compilation features some fine performances and engaging lyrics regarding the great Route 66. The Jason Eklund track is the true standout and is worth the price of the disc.

This review is from: Songs of Route 66: All-American Highway (Audio CD)
Austin Super Producer David Sanger [NOT the New York Times reporter] has acquired a reputation as King of the Anthologies, because of his output of quality work in that type album. This is the first of two collections Sanger has produced honoring The Great American Highway [and as drummer for traveling band Asleep At the Wheel, Sanger knows highways!] The first two cuts are obligatory: the theme from the long-ago TV series "Route 66" and the song of that title, as sung by its composer, the late Bobby Troup. The rest of this one is a skilled, imaginative blend of songs recorded especially for this collection and catalog tunes unearthed in memory or research, including the only known CD availability of the '70s alt.country forerunner, The Dusty Chaps, with a drug-smuggling warning, "Don't Haul Bricks on 66." This great album tells a story or two (the Road and our fascination with it) and sounds terrific at the same time! A class AAA effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Dusty Chaps: Tucson Home Town Heros!!!, Jan. 7 2003
By 
Keith (Glen Huntly, Victoria Australia) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Songs of Route 66: All-American Highway (Audio CD)
Any compilation that includes a Dusty Chaps track is automatically worth at least 4 stars! The Chaps were songwriter George Hawke's showcase band in the late 70's and early 80's. In their element, a grimy beer joint attached to an old motel down on the Benson Highway, they kicked butt. "Don't Haul Bricks" may not be their greatest track, but its very worthy and makes this album a must for me, as their various albums are completely unobtainable.

Jason Eklund was introduced to me through this cd. He is truly a great songwriter and I encourage those who liked his track to buy all of his cd's. He is American music!
