The Hazlewoods
Leavin' You For A Cowboy
Laughing Outlaw

Sassy lead vocalist Carrie Phillis delivery underpins the retro stylings of the Hazlewoods. They are clearly enamoured of fifties country and it's a perfect fit for their talents. "Long Gone" is what Nancy Sinatra might be doing if she was young today. "Love and Hate" is a frantic paced rocker with plenty of attitude. "I Really Really Love you" is another tough number that the band play like they just got a gig supporting Jerry Lee Lewis.

"Adios Amigo" ends the album with class. The Hazlewoods are clearly making it their intention to live up to their name.
