Description

Swingin' West review As a follow-up to their huge debut CD this Ontario, Canada western swing band, The Western Swing Authority, has now released another fantastic CD. The group personnel are Stacey Lee Guse, Shane Guse, Paul Chapman and Dan Howlett doing vocals. Shane and Dan also play fiddles and Paul plays guitar. Ed Ringwald is the group's wonderful steel guitarist, Matthew Lima plays bass and Craig Bignell- drums. The album opens from Louis Jordan with Barnyard Boogie. The group goes to the great Bob Wills for Maiden's Prayer and Fred Rose's Roly Poly with Stacey Lee on vocal and one of Bob's adopted pop favorites Yearning. From Jimmie Rodgers the group borrows Any Old Time and Oklahoma Stomp from Spade Cooley. They also bring back two other boogies, Vaughn Horton and Denver Darling's Choo Choo Ch'Boogie and Moon Mullican's composition and huge hit Cherokee Boogie. Pop music and Hollywood is remembered with Henry Mancini's Pink Panther. Stacey Lee is also heard on vocal on both Shane's I've Got a Feelin' and the album closer One of Us is Lying. The remaining tune has chart climbing potential all over it. It is the album titled tune, also written in part by Shane, All Dolled Up.
