For The Good Times by The Little Willies
Released: Jan 2012
Label: Blue Note Records
This clutch of covers -- originally done by icons such as Willie, Loretta and Kristofferson -- has been given a modern, yet old-timey facelift. Track by track, heartache is reflected in ultra-sharp harmonies that resonate across twanging guitars and shuffling beats. The Little Willies transform "Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves" -- a somewhat gimmicky blue-collar trucking song, originally sung by Burl Ives -- into a gritty slice of country noir that feels dangerous indeed. Other highlights include the slow-waltzing "I Worship You," the stunning "Lovesick Blues" and the cat-fight throw-down of "Fist City."
