Enter through swingin’
doors and walk your partner out onto the sawdust dance floor for
some
Texas Two Steppin’ or maybe some Ray Price style buckle
polishin’
dance music or let “Relic” the new cd from Wylie & The Wild
West take you there in your heart. Think Junior Brown meets
Ernest
Tubb meets The Mavericks and you’ll know what to expect when you
put
“Relic” in your cd player and press play. Track number seven
entitled “The Book” is a funky little Texas Two Step beat set to
a lyric telling you “The Book is my rock, it’s what I lean on”
blending the bible and the bar room in a really cool way. The
final
track named “Big Whiskey” is great guitar lick filled
instrumental set to a Johnny Cash boom chicka boom chicka boom.
The
guitar work here sounds like it might have come straight off of
Junior Brown’s Git-Steel. If I close my eyes I swear I can hear
the
soft steel playing of Buddy Emmons in the background (in my
imagination). This great guitar track is a perfect blend going
from
last song to first song as the cd repeats. A country Telecaster
has
never sounded any better. You hear it on eight of these twelve
tracks. Track 12 named “Rhythm Machine” sounds like it might
have been given birth in the brain of John Fogerty. If you’re
into
traditional country music with a little bit of mild yodeling ala
the
Singing Ranger Hank Snow, “Relic” by Wiley and The Wild West
might claim the top spot in your music collection.
