Overview

In 2000, Koch reissued Asleep at the Wheel's 1973 debut, Comin' Right at Ya, and 1975's Texas Gold, the band's third album, as a CD two-fer. While the package misses Asleep's 1974 album for Epic (different label, different rights; the two here are from EMI and Capitol, respectively), these two albums nevertheless make good companion pieces, since the first record shows a band with enormous potential and the second finds a band reaching its potential. This is the sound of a band finding its voice and riding with it, and both albums are among the very best records the group ever did, which makes this an essential -- perhaps the essential -- Asleep at the Wheel release.

I've been looking for this since my vinal copy melted in the chicken coop, where my .....friend stored my LP's, outside of metropolitan Evant, Texas. Comin'Right at Ya is a retro country western swing album, where they end the show with an honest to God gospel song, ''The Son Shines Down on Me.'' ''I've Been Everywhere outporters Porter Waggner. If you like twang, fiddles and steel, this is the disc for you.
