Lights Of Nashville (2:43): A suitcase and an old guitar, and a poor boy's dreams/ but I found out Nashville is not all that it seems...   Dream meets reality in Music City.  Up-tempo country rock with vocal about the vagaries of fame and fortune.  I lived in Nashville and played there; this song is a slice
of reality with a lively shuffle beat.

Slow Dancing With You (2:33):  Each time I see you it's like the first time / when our love was young and new...  Slow romantic fifties-style ballad reminiscent of Oh Donna and You Send Me..  Lots of
feeling and quite a few doo-wops thrown in.

Blue Alberta Moon (2:14): He's shined his shoes and got himself a haircut / his aftershave would make you want to swoon...  Light-hearted romance - something we don't see much of these days.  Canadiana country with touches of early Sun Label rockabilly - a bit old-fashioned but maybe that's not a bad thing.

Red Deer Crossing (4:03).  Instrumental country with a "Hollywood Indian" sound, extended but
driving.  Lively with a touch of foreboding.  A reflection on the history of the Canadian west - based on the original name of the city of Red Deer, Alberta.

What A Friend (I Lost Last Night)  (2:50):  What made me say the things I said / now our love is lying cold and dead...  The downside of love.  Bluegrass harmonies in a real  country honky-tonk weeper with a solid beat.

Halfway Tempted (2:27): We were perfect strangers when we walked through the door / I asked her for just one dance, and then one more...  Charming, old-fashioned love story in a lively country shuffle.  A song that evokes the innocence that once was young love.  

This Country Boy (2:43):  I need some serious boogie-woogie, that's my heart's delight / and this country boy is gonna rock 'n roll tonight...  Good-time driving country rock.  Fast and fun honky-tonk.  Weekend's here, work's done and it's time to get rowdy!  

Full Size (3:01):  I'm built solid, ain't built for pretty / if you're gonna be a bear, might as well be a grizzly...  We're not all slim and sexy (well, at least not slim).  A song about living life "full size".  Fun, lively country song with a bit of wry, non-politically-correct truth to it.

I Don't Mind (4:01):  I'd give all I own to see you happy / go ahead and break my heart, I don't mind...  Sometimes it's nobler to step aside.  Slow country ballad, with a classic weeper vocal, Sons of the Pioneers harmonies and a good beat for dancing.

Country Saturday Night  (2:47): Papa's got the banjo, I'm here with my guitar, and Uncle Joe is
looking for a fight…
Upbeat country two-step with humourous and happy vocal and a bit of an attitude.

Speechless (3:19):  Tasty, medium-slow, romantic country instrumental evokes a feeling of space and peace, yet has lots of twang.  (So what else would you call an instrumental?)

It's Never Too Late (2:11): I'm going to live it up / until they lay me down  / it's never  too late to die young...  There's no cool like an old cool.  A little light-hearted country-flavoured philosophy with a
touch of rockabilly and doo-wops.  A fun and raucous bit of truth.
