Smooth countrypolitan tones of doom, apocalyptic shag-cowpokes, anti-Vietnam war freak-folks, small-town hayseed-vignettes, ambulance-chasing bluegrass, red-baiting exploitation-jangle-folk-pop and wigged-out Nashville space-age instrumentals - you'll hear all that and much more on this extraordinary disc.
