Dusty's second album has been described as a country boy's "Night Moves". An album for all the "boomers" out there (and anyone else who likes real country).
Listen for flavours of Faron Young and Willie Nelson.
(Album trivia: the man on the album cover is Mrs. Dusty's great-great grandfather.)
Too Old To Boogie, Too Young To Die Album : $12.00 Canadian ($10 US).
Too Old to Boogie (2:23) Don't say it too loud / you might make me cry... Boomer anthem about the joys of middle age, with humourous vocals and a driving country-boogie beat.
On My Way Again (3:20) Checking out of Calgary, leaving it far behind… Relaxed Canadiana country-folk ballad about moving on. Combines a feeling of freedom and with a bit of nostalgic weariness. Pretty, slow and a little sad.
Incredible Drinkin' Man (3:57) Halfway through my second pitcher, falling in and out of trouble / tryin' to work my nerve up to go home... Pure country honky-tonk with an authentic bar-band sound. Like any true country song, this one tells a story.
Does Goodbye Always Follow I Love You (2:17) You're leaving me again just like a hundred times before / the way you always swore you'd never do… Faron Young style country shuffle, fast and danceable with plenty of twang.
Poor Company (3:26) When I get to drinking / to keep myself from thinking / you wouldn't want to know me... Losing and spirituality thought a whiskey haze. Real bar-band country with high lonesome, cry-in-your-beer vocal.
Billy's Gotta Rock (2:43) He plays for the money / he plays for the beer / he'll play any song that you want to hear.... Driving, light-hearted 50s rock 'n roll anthem about an aging musician still out there rockin'.
Love in Three-Quarter Time (3:24) I still like to make love in three-quarter time / so please save a slow one for me... Newer isn't always better, and romance never goes out of style. A tender, old-fashioned country love song in waltz time. Minimal instrumentation adds to the feeling of old-fashioned simplicity.
Nineteen Ninety-Five (2:11) Sometimes he wonders if it's been worth the wait / he ain't had a hit now since 1968… Where are the guitar heroes of yesterday? Acoustic country-folk with a beat - a tribute to the older stars who've mostly been forgotten by everyone but the late night TV hucksters.
One More Singin' Cowboy (2:07) I never heard you singing on the jukebox / the radio don't play your kind of song... A country picker approaches the end of the road in a mid-tempo country two-step with lots of twang. A tribute to the pioneers and the road runners of yesterday.
Wait Until I'm Gone (3:15) Just another day or two and you'll be over me / but I kind of wish you'd wait until I'm gone.... Ironic country vocal about loving and losing, in a 50s-flavoured honky-tonk shuffle with rock lead guitar.
Today's the Day (3:03) Coffee from a dirty cup / close your eyes and drink it up / don't call around, you'll just wake up your friends.... Willie Nelson-style country weeper, slow and moody, with interesting rock guitar lead and fills. Brilliantly captures the hopeless hoping after a love has gone.
Long Gone Rock 'n' Roll Blues (2:05) It was great but it's late / and I can't find my blue suede shoes / I paid my dues... Bouncy rock 'n roll with a light-hearted, mildly nostalgic vocal. A loving look back at the 50s - for some of us the music never died.
