Area Code 615/A Trip in the Country

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Stephen Thomas Erlewine
Koch reissued Area Code 615's two albums, 1969's Area Code 615 and 1970's Trip in the Country, as a CD two-fer in 2000, adding two bonus tracks -- "John Henry" and "Tennessee Green" -- in the process.

No other era would have country studio musicians jamming out on Beatles tunes, or turning in trippy, mind-bending instrumental interludes with fuzz-toned guitars. It's interesting as a period piece, as well as an example of their virtuosity, but in each case, it winds up as a bit of a dated artifact.
